I am getting Book 2 ready for release (and already working to get Book 3 out soon after). I’m so excited about this second story because it not only hooks in to the Rock & Rodeo world, it tells Kali’s story. Truth be told, at first I thought I’d miss Mel, but she crept back in to the story in a fabulous way. While you can read the book as a standalone and without reading Sweet Melody, Book 2 will follow nicely and expand the R&R world that hooked you in Book 1.
In a former post, I admitted to a title change of Book 2. And now, here’s the cover:
Again, I’m really excited about sharing Kali’s journey with you. With every story, the R&R world expands, evolves, and opens itself for new possibilities. There are more books to come in the series as well as a nice surprise for February. If you’d like to be notified of new releases, let me know and I’ll add you to the list. Keep an eye out for Warm Body!
When I format and create an ebook, I have an opportunity to add back matter. Thank you, the reader, for reading it. Give places you can find me, like Twitter or Facebook. There’s also a chance to tell you to watch out for the next book in the series. At the end of Sweet Melody, I mentioned that Book 2 in the Rock & Rodeo Romance series will be released in January 2015.
I’m still on target for releasing Book 2 in January (email me staciawriter(at)gmail(dot)com to get on the mailing list to hear as soon as it’s released). But—there has been a change in title. If you want to see the original concept, you’ll have to read to the very end of Sweet Melody to see what I had called it. And while it seems a little more salacious, I would add that the phrase is a way to request a pour of such alcohol as scotch.
Sticking with that theme, I changed things to still stay with scotch, this time as a way to describe it. Of course, I always choose titles with double meanings.
There will be a cover reveal soon, but for now, I’m sharing the new title for the Rock & Rodeo Romance series Book 2:
And as a bonus, I’ll share last night’s Facebook exchange between Mel and Hunter from Sweet Melody who are missing each other while she helps out Kali from Warm Body.
There are many things I am celebrating today! But first things first—thanks for helping to make my book launch day a success. I woke up this morning to a very nice surprise of being ranked in the Hot New Releases for Western Romance!
I think I disturbed my cat with all of my victory dancing. Or perhaps that was just her reaction to my serious morning bed head bouncing up and down with me. Either way, I’m grateful to everyone who’s taken a chance on Sweet Melody.
My friend and fellow author, Lee Moore, threw me a book launch party on Facebook last night. I couldn’t have had more fun! Through a game, we offered free ebook copies to the trivia winners. In keeping with the theme of the Rock & Rodeo club in the book, we asked questions centered around westerns. See if you know the answers to some of the questions:
What’s the name of one of the big spaghetti westerns starring Clint Eastwood?
What country band turned the ’90’s pop song “Life Is A Highway” into a country hit in 2006 for the Disney movie “Cars”?
What awards show do Brad Paisley & Carrie Underwood host?
There are many sci-fi shows and movies that have been dubbed or are considered “space westerns”. What’s the name of one of the franchises? (there are several answers that were accepted)
So now that the celebration has happened, it’s back to business as usual. I’ve got Rock & Rodeo Book 2 to get ready to be released this month and the first book in a contemporary romance series to keep writing. And just to show the proof of what made me dance around like a fool this morning, I got a screenshot!
