This past Saturday I was lucky enough to be a featured author for April Holthaus at her Protectors of the Crown book launch party for her new novel The Beast. 

We had an absolute blast and I got to meet a bunch of great historical romance writers as well as amazing readers.

During my half hour I ran three contests and chose three lucky winners. They are as follows…

1) Winner of the $5 Amazon GC for the “Caption this Image” contest is: Miranda Bly!

  “Watching Black Jack Randall’s & Jamie’s scene near the end of Outlander”

2) Winner of a free kindle copy of Claimed by the Highland Wolf for posting an amazing picture of a castle is: Belinda Clemons!

3) And the Winner of a free signed paperback copy of my upcoming release Blood and Hunger for signing up to my newsletter is: Beverly Ross!

This was such a great day and I really hope that I get invited to do more of these in the future! So if any authors are looking for guests at their next launch party, don’t be shy, get in touch!

Hi everyone! Thanks so much for all of your messages and excitement! I know that you’re all super eager to get your hands on the final installment of The Clan MacGregor series.

Please know that I am hard at work trying to make sure you get a GREAT ending and it will be released as soon as possible. It’ll just take a little bit more time!

You guys are the greatest and I’m so VERY lucky to have such eager fans.

Lots of love!

Oh wow, it’s been ages since I’ve done a Writer Radio post hasn’t it? I had to think for a bit this morning before I could decide on which song to share with you today.

Summer is here and the weather where I am is hot hot HOT. Unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to get away and enjoy the beaches yet, but that hasn’t stopped me from taking a break every now and then to have a one woman dance party.

So let’s kick off this week here at Stephanie Marks Books with a song to help remind us that even though it’s Monday morning, it’s still SUMMER!


With all the changes at Amazon that has happened lately, Imy Santiago is one writer/reviewer that has really hit the nail on the head with her thoughts about Amazon’s new review policies. Amazon has always had a Big Brother style of invasive information gathering, but when they can sit there and claim to know who you know, well that just takes scary and invasive to a whole new level.


Blood and Hunger has a new cover!

It’s almost time for the launch of my upcoming urban fantasy novel, Blood and Hunger. August will be here so soon! Today I saw the cover for the print version of my book, and with it came a slightly altered version of the cover. I love the new look with my name at the top! What do you guys think?
