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.
So today, I’ve been busy writing and taking my poor Macbook laptop to Apple to see if there’s a way to get it to stop having such bad lag. Of course, all that effort and time to hear that it’s most likely a user problem. Is there an app to fix that???
Anyway, while waiting for my Genius help, I happened to notice some of the interactions between our favorites from Sweet Melody and the Rock & Rodeo! Thought I would share it here in case others were just as nosy as I am!!
And Bethany shared with me her texts with Mel. Those two girls are going to miss the heck out of each other when and if Mel heads to Nashville permanently.
I can’t wait to spend more time at the R&R and meet even more awesome people. They are such characters!!
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!
