Pre-order your signed copy of ROMEO REDEEMED! 

 

 

I was lucky enough to do a signing at Hicklebee's last year and the folks were so wonderful and supportive I knew that I wanted to celebrate the release of ROMEO REDEEMED with them in 2012. I'll be signing at the store October 5th at 6:30 (That's 4 days before the official release, but the staff at Hicklebee's have connections, yo. Be there and get your book early along with some sweet book-themed goodies!)

 

But if you can't be there, never fear. You can still order your signed copy here:


http://www.hicklebees.com/romeo-redeemed-preoder-now

 

You can have your copy signed to you (or the person of your choosing) and as a thank you for pre-ordering I'll be tucking a few goodies into your book. I'm working with a super talented artist who is doing an original watercolor of a rose and dagger (with J and R's initials on the hilt) to celebrate the release of ROMEO REDEEMED. I'll be including a 4 x 6 print of the artwork, as well as a few temporary tattoos so that you can sport your own R-and-J-inspired temporary body art while reading your signed copy. 

 

(Or wait until April Fool's day to put on the tat and tell your mom you got a tattoo without her permission. I did that once with a fake belly-button ring. It was funny for about three seconds before she gave me this look that could melt flesh off bone and I ripped it out and screamed "April Fools!" before she could kill me with her death glare.)

 

I'm also working on an exclusive sneak peek of my 2013 book (which has a title and a cover! Oh my, what a gorgeous cover, but that's a post for another day) to share with you, so I'm hoping to have that ready to go by October, as well.

 

So head over and pre-order if you have a mind to. Here's a bit about the book:

 

 

 

Seductive companion to the popular Juliet Immortal, in which former lovers—Romeo and Juliet—meet, not as true lovers, but truly as enemies.

Cursed to live out eternity in his rotted corpse, Romeo, known for his ruthless, cutthroat ways, is given the chance to redeem himself by traveling back in time to save the life of Ariel Dragland. Unbeknownst to her, Ariel is important to both the evil Mercenaries and the love-promoting Ambassadors and holds the fate of the world in her hands. Romeo must win her heart and make her believe in love, turning her away from her darker potential before his work is discovered by the Mercenaries. While his seduction begins as yet another lie, it soon becomes his only truth. Romeo vows to protect Ariel from harm, and do whatever it takes to win her heart and soul. But when Ariel is led to believe his love is a deception, she becomes vulnerable to Mercenary manipulation, and her own inner darkness may ultimately rip them apart.

I'll be touching base soon with a sneak peek of the artwork for the tattoo!

New Two Book Deal with Delacorte Books

The official announcement from Publishers Marketplace

"Stacey Jay's futuristic retelling of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, to Michelle Poploff at Delacorte, in a very nice deal, in a two-book deal, by Ginger Clark at Curtis Brown."

I am SO very excited to be writing two more books for Delacorte! They are an amazing crew made of awesome over there and I feel honored to continue to work with them for at least two more books. And I'm really excited about writing a stand alone book for book one (no word on what book two will be at this point, but that's kind of nice too. A bit of mystery is exciting.)

Want a Signed Copy of JULIET IMMORTAL?

Want to support a GREAT indie bookstore in the process?

Well then!

IF YOU'RE IN THE U.S.: Send an email to healdsburg@copperfields.net with the subject line: Order signed copies of JULIET IMMORTAL. The wonderful Katie--bookseller extraordinaire--will get back to you and make sure your copy is set aside for me to sign on the August 9th release date (and will ship it to you soon thereafter for a small additional fee).

Now, I'm not so vain as to think tons of people want a signed copy of my book, believe me. But I've had three or four emails wondering how one might go about procuring a signed copy and so I've decided to set something up for those interested parties. If you do decide to pre-order, just know that I will be eternally, mind-blowingly grateful. And!

-I will use my prettiest handwriting (which isn't that pretty, but I type all the time so I can't help it that my penmanship is crap, but I will try really, really hard to make my signature worthy).

-I will include a special something tucked into the front cover. (No telling what the special something is. But I think it will be a nice something. And you might like it. And it might be a little printed sneak peak of ROMEO REDEEMED also with my signature on it.<--okay, so that's what it will be. But *might* sounds more mysterious. *Waves mysterious hands*)

-I will stick a few postcards in there for you to share with friends. Also with signature.

So there. As I said, I'll be eternally grateful. I'm grateful whenever anyone buys one of my books, but this is my first hardcover and I know they're expensive and I know times are hard for so many people right now and I am deeply thankful for anyone who saves up their hard earned money to buy my big, heavy book. (It is big. And heavy. Or I think it will be heavy. I have yet to hold the hardcover in my hand, but I can imagine it and my imagination says it's going to be wondrously heavy.)

FOR MY INTERNATIONAL READERS: Unfortunately Katie is unable to ship internationally at this time. In order to address the signed book needs of internationals, however, I propose the following: You can order a copy of JULIET IMMORTAL (with free international shipping) from The Book Depository at the following link:

http://www.bookdepository.com/Juliet-Immortal-Stacey-Jay/9780385908269

After you order, if you send me some proof of purchase (with any personal information you wouldn't like me to see deleted from the email), and a snail mail address, I'm willing to pay shipping to send you an autographed label to stick on the inside of the book, as well as whatever light weight goodies I can fit into a business class envelope. I know it's not quite the same, but it's the best I can do as far as my current shipping overseas budget allows.

So if that works for you, please contact me (not the bookstore) directly via my contact page:

http://www.staceyjay.com/contact/


That way we can spare Katie some email and I can let you know I received your request and when I'll be mailing out the signed book stickers and extras and blah blah.

Thanks so much reading, and happy summer,

Stacey Jay
