Stacia & Stacey Giveaway Hop!!! [03/20-03/27]


If you've been a follower of my blog for long enough you know how rabid a fan of Stacey Jay that I am. Not only because her books are amazing but because she's one of those authors that's just a cool person, if I'd just met her at random before reading her books I'd want to hang with her. All you have to do is read her blog to see she's good people. :)

Last year when DEAD ON THE DELTA came out I loved it vehemently, even made the hubs read it. So imagine how frustrated I was when reviews began pouring in next to mine that hated it! I mean, that's okay, I value an honest opinion, but the thing I was seeing is that no one was "getting" Annabelle and that was why they didn't like the book.

If you've ever suffered from addiction or self-harming behavior you will understand her. She's flawed and makes tons of bad decisions but that's what I loved about her... I could relate. I'm a recovered anorexic (as my form of self-harm 'cause it was easier to hide than cutting) who briefly struggled with pain-pill addiction. No, it ain't pretty, or glamorous like in the movies, but I'm not ashamed of it one bit. I was in a dark place and eventually I started seeing it for what it was, got my shit together, and hope to help other people understand what drives folks to the sort of destructive behaviors I was putting myself through. Which is why I can't wait to read BLOOD ON THE BAYOU... I want to see Annabelle growing as a person even as she's forced to deal with a really crappy world. I want her to get her shit together the way I did even if it takes a whole series for it to happen. Because it can happen if a person wants to overcome it.

For today's hop I was originally planning to only giveaway one of Stacey's Annabelle books since I have yet to crack one of Stacia's. But as it happened I was going through my TBR piles (your mind would be blown if you saw just my physical TBR shelves, boxes, and stacks) and saw UNHOLY GHOSTS sitting there. I know I'll like it so why haven't I read the damned thing? I have lots of excuses but with it currently 99¢ on Kindle I really should have read it by now. So this week I'm going to juggle Stacey's ROMEO REDEEMED and Stacia's UNHOLY GHOSTS, and bask in the awesome. Which means I have to offer a chance at both an adventure with Annabelle and one with Chess. ;)

I hope if you're like me and have tried one series and not the other my giveaway will be the perfect chance for you to give it a try. In the meantime feel free to use the linkies to find out more about Stacia and Stacey and their books. Good luck and thanks for hopping by!

Hi!

First book in the series. for both authors. Have not read any books of theirs. But would love to! :-)

sienny said...

i'm new to both series, so any one of the book is fine by me. thanks for the giveaway!

Linda Henderson said...

I haven't had a chance to read the series yet so the first one, Unholy Ghosts would be the one I'd pick. I had it but hadn't had a chance to read it yet before I lost my home and everything in last May's tornado that hit my hometown.

Glad to see some of you are new to these. I know Stacey's is a bit underground in it's following but I think the more people who find it the more fans it'll have. ;) But then again I'm kinda partial 'cause I love Stacey's knack with creating memorable characters.

Good luck all!

Sophia Rose said...

I entered for both authors. I have not read either of them so if I were to win, I would like 'Dead on the Delta' and 'Unholy Ghosts'. I haven't heard anything one way or the other about Annabelle, but I do not mind a character who has to battle a few personal demons.

Thanks for participating in the hop and for the giveaway opportunities.

Rhianna said...

You're very welcome Sophia, thanks for dropping by and entering!

I haven't heard of the author Stacia Kane before. The series sounds like a great read though. Thank you for introducing her to me!
