Release (and launch) day!

Carina Press is officially open for business! Which means Exclusively Yours is officially for sale!

I have a blog post on eHQN titled How the eHarlequin community changed my life if you want to give it a read. I got a little weepy writing it.

I have a guest post at RR@H Novel Thoughts today. Go join in the comments and you could win a copy of Exclusively Yours or a download from my backlist!

Make sure you check out Pearl’s World of Romance because she has an awesome week planned!

Carina Press Week

And just in case you haven’t already run off to get your copy of Exclusively Yours, here are a few snippets from early reviews! (As always, I hope you’ll click the link to read the entire reviews!)

Sarah from Smart Bitches, Trashy Books:

This book made me happy. That’s probably the best way to put it: it made me smile. A lot. Books like this are why I read romance.

Lori from I Just Finished Reading…:

This is a strong, family-oriented book, full of laughter, heartbreak, fun, romance, and love. As much as I adore Shannon Stacey’s Devlin Group (and when do we get Jack’s book, hmmmm?), I think her true strength lies in contemporaries, and revealing people that a reader can completely relate to. Strongly recommended.

Natasha from My Disorganized Ramblings:

Who do I recommend to? If you have a love of contemporaries, if you have a love of reunited lovers, if you love meddling families, and photo happy nephews, I definitely recommend!

Katie from Make of it what you will:

I really enjoyed this story, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good contemporary romance and/or one with older protagonists.

Final thought: A smart story of rediscovering what it means to love someone.

And in her article on summer reading, Smart Bitch Sarah said:

Stacey’s writing is sharp and sexy and this second-chance story is perfectly hilarious — and there’s ATVs, mud, bug-spray and s’mores. Really. There’s nothing more romantic than s’mores. I enjoyed this book so much if it were printed on paper I’d hit people with it until they read it.

    I bought my copy this morning!!! Can’t wait!

    I was a little bummed that I have to get my copies through Amazon, so I can’t contribute to the bestseller rankings, but good luck! :)

    Downloaded and devoured ‘Exclusively Yours’ first thing this morning! It was my top pick of Carina inaugural releases. Loved it and seriously hope Kevin Kowalsky is going to get his own book (soon)!!!

    Hi Shannon! I discovered you and stumbled upon your site from Pearl’s amazing Carina Press Week post! I alraedy loved the premise of Exclusively Yours, but after reading Pearl’s praising review I can’t wait to get my hands on it, it sounds wonderful! I love reading about good family dynamics and sibling relationships, and it sounds promising that Exclusively Yours is not only a sweet, feel good romance but also a funny one! Can’t resist those! :razz:

    I downloaded and inhaled Exclusively Yours. I loved it! I think Sarah from Smart Bitches got it right; it made me happy. The setting was perfect. With your background of camping and ATV’s, you brought it to life. Can’t wait for Kevin’s story.
    Congratulations on a great book!

    Stella, thanks for stopping by! Pearl is so awesome for doing a Carina Week and I hope, if you read it, it lives up to your expectations!

    Thanks, Bev! It was so much fun writing a book that incorporated so much of what makes me happy in life. I’m glad it came through!

    And Natalie…WHEEEE!!! It’s been a very exciting couple of days!

    Huge congrats, Shannon

    Just think… You spent all that time on the Eharl historical boards, but now making a BIG splash in Contemp. Kudos to you for being versatile!

    Thanks, Jewell!

    I seem to have written a little over everything but, based on my current plans, it looks like I’ll be settling into contemporaries (and some action-adventure) for a while. :grin:
