Happy Monday, friends! Today I’d like to share with you a very special event going on in the literary world. I’m joining forces with internationally best-selling author Stacy Eaton to help kick off her pre-launch party for her newest novel, WHETHER I’LL LIVE OR DIE, which will release July 13.
WHETHER I’LL LIVE OR DIE is a fictional story about a young woman named Amanda who deals with the pain and emotional issues of domestic violence. Early reviews praise it as a heartbreaking and compelling story about love, abuse and betrayal.
For a taste of this truly riveting story, I invite you to watch the book trailer:
Sends chills up you spine, doesn’t it? Watching this video, I can’t help but think of Louise Muchmore, the fictional mother in my novel, LITTLE 15, who literally is a prisoner in her own home by the hands of her husband, Carl. But let’s save that for another post, because right now, I want to tell you more about Stacy …
Stacy is a full-time police officer who enjoys crime scene investigation above all else. She also owns a business that deals with helping people get the awareness out for the causes they care most about. She is a mother of two and her husband is also in law enforcement.
Stacy uses her work experience and expertise to make her fiction more believable, weaving bits of crime-solving knowledge into her writing. Her unique style of switching back and forth from mind to mind of her characters keeps readers aware of what each character is feeling and why they do the things they do.
Her first book, MY BLOOD RUNS BLUE, was the start of her writing career. It brings the world of law enforcement into the paranormal world of vampires. It is a suspenseful adult series that will keep you guessing from chapter to chapter. Book one, MY BLOOD RUNS BLUE, was published April 2011 and is currently available in paperback, hardcover and e-book editions. Book two of the series, entitled BLUE BLOOD FOR LIFE was released September 2011 and like book one, made International Best Selling lists on Amazon very quickly.
WHETHER I LIVE OR DIE Pre-launch Party
As part of the launch for WHETHER I LIVE OR DIE, Stacy has interviewed a handful of authors (including myself) about their books, which in one way or another, all deal with intense topics of abuse. To my delight, Stacy has selected me as the first author to interview and feature on her Web site.
You can read my interview on Stacy’s blog here. I wish Stacy all the best on the upcoming launch of her newest book, WHETHER I LIVE OF DIE. My Kindle will be fired up and ready to download it July 13Th!
I love hearing from you! What type of books do you like reading most?
