It’s always exciting when you release a new book. Everyone wants in, everyone wants it, and you celebrate this milestone in your writing growth. But why not celebrate it all the time?

Yes, today we will celebrate a book birthday. One year ago, The 13: Tales of Illusory was born. It’s been read out loud several times, had a fun blog tour, and even recently had a new video made. Now it’s time to celebrate it’s first year! To commemorate the occasion, my publisher has agreed to sell The 13: Tales of Illusory for $.99 through the entire month of October. That’s right! If finances is all that is holding you back, now’s your chance to grab this collection readers call mesmerizing, quirky, totally twisted, and creepy.

What reviewers had to say:

mesmerizing, intriguing, captivating. Stephanie has a special talent. She creates magic in her words, drawing you into each of her stories, making you feel as if you are walking alongside the characters, feeling the emotions as well. See all sides of the dimensions.

The country vernacular in Season of Change was done so well, I could hear the main character. Onomatopoeias are used to great effect – making this a great tale to be read aloud around a fire. Loved the character’s ending lines – funny and dark!

What the Sign Saw was sort of like a psychedelic trip, and I liked knowing – yet not knowing – exactly what was going to happen. The unfolding was very satisfying.
