Shannon Stacey

A review and FAQ

First, I got a review for Interstellar Sparks, which releases tomorrow! It’s from Wendy at JERR:

Shannon Stacy presents a story with a captivating plot and core-melting sexual play. I felt the strong urge to finish this short book in one sitting and to have a cool drink at my side. The characters are exciting and entertaining. They make sex a fun experience before, during and after their hot encounters. The story flowed at a good pace and kept me fully engaged. Ilyna is a beautiful, intelligent, politically adept representative of her planet. I was eager to find out how she could fulfill her deepest desires. I wanted to see if she could keep her happiness and avoid being relegated to a life of only wonderful memories. I congratulate Ms. Stacy on an exciting, entertaining and arousing erotic romance story. This book made me wish I were Ilyna and had my own electrician! It is a good book and I urge erotic romantic readers to take a look at this one.


And PBW’s talking FAQs today. I brought this up a while back, when it seemed to me like everybody had to have one, but I’ve looked around and…everybody doesn’t. (Although, when surfing, if I come across an FAQ link, I always click on it.) But I figured I’d answer a few of the questions left in the comments. Just for fun. :grin:

Q: Why do you talk about Coffee and Doritos so much?

A: Because I love them! The coffee I’m obsessed with. The short kid even composed a rock song for me about coffee. I wish I had the ability to put a video up because it’s actually a really cool song. The Doritos…that’s kind of an old joke that’s stuck. They’re my comfort food of choice, but I actually rarely have them in the house. (That may or may not be because I’ll eat the entire bag and my ass will not thank me.)

Q: Who are the biggest influences on your writing career?

A: Sesame Street and Little House on the Prairie. There are countless people who influence and have impacted my writing career, but Half Pint and the Count launched it. Reading a Sesame Street book starring the Count brought my first understanding of somebody being behind those written words. And Laura Ingalls Wilder taught me storytelling on paper. I don’t remember a time when I wanted to be anything else but a writer.

Q: How many Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffees do you drink daily?

A: It was four large iced coffees a day for a long time (1 to get through morning computer time and 1 for morning housecleaning 1 for the afternoon and 1 for after supper), but I’ve recently started cutting back to three. I’ve heard it might help with my insomnia problem.

Q: If the Publishing Fairy granted you three career-related wishes, what would they be?

A: Oh geez. Leave it to PBW to ask a really hard one. Let me think…

1. To be earning enough money from writing to justify not getting an outside job when the short kid goes full-time first grade next September. The clock is ticking.

2. To be able to pre-plan extensively and write the book’s scenes in order from start to finish.

3. And I’d totally be lying if I said I wouldn’t ask the Publishing Fairy to get me on the NYT list.

    I’m just beginning to write with the hopes of one day becoming published (hopefully) soon. Can the publishing fairy grant my wishes too?!:angel:

    #1 is very achievable. You can do it! :whip::cheer:

    Sounds good — and very attainable, imo. Now, just one more question — Were you REALLY the reason Brad and Jen broke up?
