Top Reasons Authors Miss Their Deadlines by Stacey Marie Brown

Writing is hard caption

Thirsty, hungry, thirsty again….need a snack….Ooooo chocolate. Can’t work for a while, food needs to digest.

Have to pee….and 5 minutes later pee again.

A sparkly…oh, that was just dust. I should clean that. Oooo another sparkly.

Shirtless guyCute guy walks by…actually anybody that walks by.

Research, especially finding “hot guys” to fit your character.

INTERNET…It’s not my fault! It is designed to suck you in. Damn you Pinterest and Facebook!

House needs cleaning right then. But just surface. Can’t do deep cleaning as I need to write.

Must check every e-mail that dings (even the junk mail).

Paying bills….oh right no money. Must finish book.

Obstacles keep coming up preventing me from writing.

Give the cat a bath. Throw in the pet hamster for good measure.

Veronica Mars/Buffy the Vampire reruns have just come on.

Thinking up good excuses as to why I am not writing.

Kitty meme

There is a disturbance in the force.

Matching my socks.

The ceiling tiles need to be recounted.

Reading your favorite book boyfriend book for supposed “research”. Research lasts till you finish entire series.

Checking email, Facebook, Amazon, Twitter, and Pinterest…start over again in case something happened since the last time you checked 30 seconds ago.

Stacey M BrownAbout Stacey M. Brown

Stacey Marie Brown by day is an Interior/Set Designer, by night a writer of Paranormal Fantasy, Adventure, and Literary Fiction. She grew up in Northern California, where she ran around on her family’s farm, raising animals, riding horses, playing flashlight tag, and turning hay bales into cool forts. Even before she could write, she was creating stories and making up intricate fantasies. Writing came as easy as breathing. She later turned that passion into acting, living and traveling abroad, and designing. Though she had never stopped writing, moving back to San Francisco seemed to have brought it back to the forefront and this time it would not be ignored.

When she’s not writing she’s out hiking, spending time with friends, traveling, listening to music, or designing.

Darkness of Light by Stacey M BrownDarkness of Light by Stacey Marie Brown
(Darkness #1)
Publication date: February 13th 2013
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal Romance

Synopsis:
Freak. Witch. Crazy. Schizo.

Ember Brycin has been called them all. She’s always known she’s different. No one has ever called her normal, even under the best circumstances. Bizarre and inexplicable things continually happen to her, and having two different colored eyes, strange hair, and an unusual tattoo only contributes to the gossip about her.

When the latest school explosion lands her in a facility for trouble teens, she meets Eli Dragen, who’s hot as hell and darkly mysterious. Their connection is full of passion, danger, and secrets. Secrets that will not only change her life, but what and who she is—leading her down a path she never imagined possible.

Between Light and Dark, Ember finds a world where truth and knowledge are power and no one can be trusted. But her survival depends on finding out the truth about herself. In her pursuit, she is forced between love and destiny and good and evil, even when the differences between them aren’t always clear. At worst, she will incite a war that could destroy both worlds. At best, she will not only lose her heart but her life and everyone she loves. Once the truth is out, however, there will be no going back. And she’ll definitely wish she could.

Dwellers of Darkness by Stacey M BrownDwellers of Darkness by Stacey Marie Brown
(Darkness #3)

Publication date: February 27th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal Romance

Synopsis:
Some days feel like years, but in Ember Brycin’s case just the opposite is true. She had only been in the Otherworld for a day or two when she returned back to the Earth’s realm. But it is three years later on Earth. Em is now 22. It would matter if she was human, but she’s not. She is a Dae, part Demon and part Fay, with a little Dark Dweller thrown in to make her even more of a freak.

Seeing Seattle rebuilt only confirms she has been gone three years. For her it was not long ago that the Seattle area was just rubble of concrete and death. All done by her hand.

One thing that hasn’t changed, though, is her undeniable connection to Eli Dragen, who is sexy, gorgeous, and even more volatile and frustrating. But her problems go way past him. The Seelie Queen of the Otherworld still holds Mark, Em’s father, and her friends, Ryan, and Josh as hostages. Em needs to rescue them without, once again, getting caught and being used as a pawn to help the Queen regain possession of Earth. At the same time Ember is in hot water with Lars, the Unseelie King, after breaking her contract with him.

As some secrets have come to light others seem to become even more enigmatic. The only truth Ember knows is,everyone is harboring secrets. As Eli’s past is revealed, Em understands more clearly why he acts the way he does and how much their lives are intertwined. But she also knows Eli is holding something back, something that could change their relationship forever.

Em herself continues to wrestle with her feelings toward Torin and her own secret she’s withholding from Kennedy. As the tension for war mounts between the Seelie and Unseelie (Light and Dark), the tension at the Dark Dweller’s compound mounts even more as they prepare to obtain the sword no matter what the price. But is Ember the answer to the location of the sword? Is she the one to fulfill the prophecy? As usual nothing is ever what it seems.
