If you’ve been following me for a while, you know there have been some huge changes in my life since May 2015 – I moved, my husband and I split up/divorced, I started quasi-dating again, my youngest went to live with him for a short time (he’s back now), my oldest graduated high school and recently turned 18, I started a new full-time job, published a book with a publisher…it’s been a LOT.
Now that the relationship is over, the divorce has been filed, and my maiden name is now mine again, I kind of want to get as unassociated with my ex-husband as I can. Not because I hate him, but because it’s a bit of a fresh start for me.
So, in the spirit of that, there are some changes coming. the biggest one is – I’m changing the name on my books. I know…queue shocked faces. I’ve been using Stacey Mosteller since I first published Save Me From Myself in 2014. But, my maiden name is a LOT easier to spell, and I’d rather not look at that other last name every time I sign a book or visit my Facebook page. The new name I’ll be publishing under is Stacey Lewis
The Nashville Nights series came down from all sales sites at the end of November in order to prepare for the changes. Along with the new name, the covers are getting a facelift, Everything I Shouldn’t & Everything I Need are being combined as are Pretending He’s You & Pretending She’s Mine – yes, you’ll be getting that soon. I’ll get to that in just a sec. Never Wanted More will also no longer be part of the NN series. Also, the series will now be the Nashville Secrets series.
Save Me From Myself will be three years old on January 14th. To celebrate, in addition to the new covers, I’m adding 14 chapters from David’s POV. Never before seen stuff that will let you see a little of what was going on in his head when he was falling in love with Lyric. The feedback I get on the book the most is that the end wasn’t enough of an end, so there will be an extended epilogue there too. I’ll also be including the Valentine short story at the end of both the ebook and paperback as an added bonus.
Like I said up above, Everything I Shouldn’t and Everything I Need will now be one book instead of two, so it will now be a standalone. There may be a bonus scene or two added in – such as the Halloween scenes posted in 2014.
Pretending He’s You and Pretending She’s Mine will also be combined into one book. I’m currently about halfway through PSM, so it will be releasing in February 2017 when the rest of the series rereleases. I’m also going to send all the books through another round of editing just to make sure they’re as polished as they can be.
That’s right…the series will rerelease with all updates in February 2017. I don’t have an exact date yet, but stay tuned for it!
There will also be some news to come on the Nashville U series and when you can expect the next books to be released, but that stuff isn’t finalized, so you’ll still have to wait for that.
In 2017, I plan to release a few other new books too. My Other Life, Deceive Me, and hopefully Anna’s book Everybody but Us to finish out the Nashville Nights series.
Gah, this was so much information. Hopefully, you made it this far, and if you did, thank you for all your support! You guys rock so hard
