News!

I've been exchanging emails with the EIC of eXtasy Books and I'm excited to announce some updates and changes to my release schedule. You've probably noticed the shiny new cover for my next Lost Shifter book and wondered why I have it so soon. That's because Shane's Fury will be released a month early! So now it's coming out March 15th. I'll also be spacing the Drone Series out a bit since that series only has a few more books left in it. To fill the void I'll be writing books about some of the secondary characters from Blast From The Past and Out Of Balance. This new series will be call Friends to Lovers and the first book will be titled Bylines and Snapshots. In the meantime, I'll be working on the next book from the Archangel Series, but that book will likely be released at eXtasy's sister site, Divine Destinies. Have no fear, though, the stories will still be gritty and have the same twisted sense of humor in them. So here is my current release schedule:



March 1st-Between the Pipes-Blue Line Hockey Series
March 15th-Shane's Fury-Lost Shifter Series
April 1st-Three Alarm Fire-EMS Heat Series
April 15th-Bylines and Snapshots-Friends to Lovers Series
May 1st-Cup Check-Blue line Hockey Series
May 15th-Lost Shifter Book
June 1st-EMS Heat Book
June 15th-Vengeance Paid in Blood-Drone Vampire Series
July 1st-Blue Line Hockey Book
July 15th-Lost Shifter Book
August 1st-EMS Heat Book
August 15th-Friends to Lovers Series

P.S. I received an email titled "From a Reader"  and before I could respond to it, I blew it an lost the message. So if you sent me this email, please don't think I'm ignoring you. I treasure each and every email, letter and message I get from my readers.

  9. Oh, this is such a GREAT NEWS! I can't WAIT to read Shane's story. Considering that An Assassin's Touch is the best in the series yet.

    Oh, by the way, whose turn is it for the next Drone Vampire series??

    ReplyDelete
  10. Thanks, everybody!I'm very happy Shane's next book is being released early, too.

    Ami-the next Drone Book will finish off Blaine and Toby's story, but you will also get a peek at the beginning of Ian and Kale's relationship.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Awesome! So much to look forward to reading! YAY!!!

    ReplyDelete

  15. a reader

    hello, that such, I read your last book of drone book, which develops the story of Toby and blaine and where it shows the interest of ian and kale in this book, after the attack and toby and blaine have sex in the vehicle to Ian is about to get kale, where he says that this love toby, but I as a reader gave me the impression that kale is in love with his brother Blaine and not Toby, that's what I appreciate the response that kale gave Ian, I would love that passed me that single detail, please, thank you, greetings

    ReplyDelete
  16. That's great news about not having to wait too long for the continuation of Shane's story. I love the Lost Shifter series. Thank you for writing them :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. A reader-Kale is in love with Toby. Or at least that's what he thinks. I have a feeling Ian is going to try to convince him otherwise.

    Tam-Sorry about your budget:P Now that I don't have a day job, I write full-time. By that I mean around fifteen hours a day. Yeah, I have no life at all.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sharon, Lis and Naughtybooknymph-I'm very excited to move Shane up, too. Plus, there will be a new feline introduced that I'm very eager to share with everybody.

    ReplyDelete
  19. What!! A new feline??? Stephani you are bad!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh boy, this is great news. When I got to the end of An Assissin's Touch and seen it was to be continued I cried. Really I did, been looking at your website [bookmarked lost shifter page]for the new book just about everyday. Clicked on your home page while ago and seen the message about exciting news and clicked to check your blog, SO glad I did. I can handle the 15th, of course the 11th would be much better, would make a great birthday present to myself lol. The Lost shifter series is my fav, like the EMS series too, although I'm a few behind. They're located in the same area, are the EMS guys ever going to meet up with shifters? That would be cool :).

    ReplyDelete
  21. Cannot wait to read the rest of Shane & Trevor's story.
    Love the way you write so much, I've read nearly all your books and you remain on my must buy list!

  23. Hi Stephani

    do you think you will ever write a Continuing story to Salting Zombies

    Heather

    ReplyDelete
  24. just to add out of the three stories in the anthology i enjoyed yours the most and i would like to see the story continue.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Rachel-I'm very, very bad, LOL!

    Susan-Sorry I made you cry. But, Shane is coming back soon, so don't fret. ;-) I've never considered having the EMS Heat mesh with the Lost Shifter series. That does have wild possibilities, though. Could you imagine the poor EMS guys having to deal with Carson or Shane as a patient?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Rita-Aw, thanks so much!Your sweet comments made my day.

    Heather-Thanks so much. When I wrote Salting Zombies I went for pure camp and I was worried about how it would be received. I've toyed with writing a follow up book, but haven't gone so far as to plot out any idea, though. I may have to think about doing that.

    ReplyDelete
  27. OH Good Stephani. As I said in my email, you are killing me.

    I suppose what hubby doesn't know won't hurt him. =o)

  31. Excellant - Great schedule and wonderful news on the release of Shane's Story!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I don't see Opposites Distract or Between the Pipes available on Kindle yet. Do you know what your schedule is for Kindle releases? I can't wait to read Shane's Fury.

    Thanks for so many great stories.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I hope the next Archangel book comes out soon! :(

    ReplyDelete
  34. Michael-Thanks! I had so much fun with Shane.

    Anonymous-Between the Pipes should be up in a week or so. Unfortunately Opposites Distract is only available at All Romance eBooks. It was part of their Perfect Strangers series.

    Anonymous 2-I do have an Archangel book planned for this year. I just don't have a release date yet because they take me a bit longer to write. I promise that I'm working on it, though :-)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks Stephani. Does that mean that Shane's story will be available on Kindle pretty soon as well? I can't wait to find out what happens next. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Shane's Fury comes out at eXtasy on May 15th, so it should be out at Kindle around a week or so after that.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Um, March 15, not May 15, right?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Chris- D'oh! You're right, it's March. That will teach me to mix muscle relaxers and internet.

    ReplyDelete
  39. There's probably a comic strip in that statement. :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Stephani you don't know how happy i am about Shane's Fury coming out so soon. Before i could read Assassin's Touch i found out about the next book but did not know when it was coming out so i had my daughter hide the file so i would not read it before the next book was out that way i could have twice the pleasure. I have been waiting for Shane's story since he was introduced in the series. Although i love all the characters my heart have a soft spot for shane. so thanks for the early release.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Who's going to be in Three alarm fire... And if you dont mind me asking who's in the next shifter book the one after Shane's fury.... Thanks your the best...

    ReplyDelete
  42. Gina-Three Alarm will be about Forest's paramedic partner,Dustin. He's going to hook up with a hot fireman. The next Shifter book is going to be about Riley and Colin. Some interesting things happen between them in Shane's Fury.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Anonymous-No problem. An early release is the least I could do after delivering that cliff hanger at the end of Assassin's Touch.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I know! I screech so loud in indignation at the cliffhanger for Assassin's Touch that I woke up my two-year-old... Granted in was 0100. Still! I can't wait.I actually wrote it on my calender, right next to when my husband's coming home. LOL. Thanks for this series!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I looove your books. I can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Tabitha-Oh,no! I hope you were able to get the baby back asleep. I promise that Shane's Fury doesn't end in a cliffhanger, so this time you don't need to worry about putting her down for the night. LOL

    morganazr-Thanks! I love having great readers like you, *big hugs*

    ReplyDelete
  47. Stephani, just finished reading Between the Pipes. LOVED it! I have to tell you, my favorite line was "...somehow he defied all laws of sealtbelt-stretch-ocity"!!!! LOL! Is that a real word? Seriously, great story. Can't wait for the next one. Any hints...Kip? Sergi? Kip & Sergi together???? :-)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Glad you liked that line, Sharon. I don't think it's a real word, but I think it fit that situation perfectly. LOL Kip and Sergei's story will be next for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Stephani, just realized that 'Cup Check' comes out the day before my birthday. Sweet! What an awesome birthday gift! Thanks!! LOL!!
    Can't wait to read Kip & Sergi's story. :)

  53. Stephanie, I think I have read almost all of your books... I can't seem to get enough of them. They are wonderful.... always waiting for the next one to come out..... Thank you so much for feeding my addiction!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Tiffany-Thank you for being such a great support! You rock!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Stephani,
    I was just wondering if there is an ETA for a release on your new shifter book? I really want to read it but I typically just stick to kindle books since I got it nearly three years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I have to say you are one of my favorite authors, and I positively adorn The Lost Shifter Series! As I read, I pay very close attention to some of the names of the other people your main characters seem to be familar with, like that Gage fellow, and it makes me wonder what sneaky, but wonderful plans you have hidden up your sleeve...! lol }:}

    ReplyDelete
  57. K.S.-Riley's Regret should be available on Kindle in the next couple of weeks.

    Precious-Thank you so much :-) There are big plans for Gage and a few other characters. *evil grin*

    ReplyDelete
  58. Gosh!! I love your lost shifter series (and the rest of your books of course) and can't wait to wait for the next release!! I really enjoy your work!! excellent job!!! ^__^

    ReplyDelete
  59. Chris-Thank you so much! *hugs* Those kind words mean a ton to me.

    ReplyDelete
  60. OMG Stephani, your Lost Shifter Series & your Drone Vampire Series are 2 of my favorite series EVER.

    Can you tell me the title for book 12 in your Lost Shifter Series & who the main characters are?

    I'm anxiously waiting for July 15 to come.

    Thanks for your great work. You are the BEST :)

    Jewel

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hi, Jewel! Thanks for the wonderful words. The title of the next Lost Shifter book is Ranger's Folly. It's going to be about Ranger and Xavier, Riely's long lost twin brother.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I cannot wait for this book... I love this series. So hard to choose which is my favourite though.

    Plus I love everything I have read of yours... I am part way through the Drone Vampire... loved all the EMS Heat ones as well... Good work. you are what I hope to be one day... (Writing wise). Hopefully one day... Thanks again for letting me share in your worlds.
