Penny Black

From Stacey Wallace Benefiel, the author of the Zellie Wells trilogy, comes a new trilogy set in the Society world.

FOUND: Penny Black hasn’t had it easy. Just about everything you’d expect to happen to a harassed foster-kid turned junkie has happened to Penny. Add in the mysterious power to rewind time, conducting events around her, and it’s a wonder she held up on the streets for so many years. Now, at seventeen, the New Society has found her. Finally, Penny is where she belongs. But that doesn’t stop the visions, or the need to protect the victims shown to her.

Wyatt Adams is excited and intrigued when his sister Melody assigns him to be Penny’s Lookout. Being the youngest, and hopelessly ordinary in the family that created the New Society, has left Wyatt feeling like he has a lot to prove – and Penny is a big deal. She’s got abilities that surpass any he’s seen before … and pretty much every quality he looks for in a girlfriend, but no one needs to know about that, especially Penny.

 

FRAYED: Ever since she arrived at the New Society School, Penny Black’s life has been unraveling. And let’s face it, things weren’t going so bueno to begin with.

Along with her new found abilities, relatives, and boyfriend, Penny has gained a whole other set of problems and even more reasons to run.

Yet, she finds she can’t leave her new life behind.

Elle needs her to help solve a mystery.

Kai is relying on her to save him.

Wyatt wants her to love him back.

And someone is working to make sure none of these things happen.

retroact sagaFLATfinal

GLIMPSE: Zellie Wells has a devastating crush on Avery Adams, the son of her mom’s high school sweetheart. At her sixteenth birthday party, held in the basement of her dad’s church, she finally finds the courage to talk to him. Turns out, the devastating crush is mutual.

As Avery takes her hand and leads her out onto the makeshift dance floor, Zellie is overwhelmed by her first vision of his death; shocking because not only are they both covered in his blood, but they’re old, like thirty-five, and she is pregnant.

Afraid to tell anyone about the vision, (she’d just be labeled a freaky black magic witch, right?) Zellie keeps the knowledge of Avery’s future to herself and tries to act like any other teenager in love.

GLIMMER: Zellie Wells’ life is changing. Her relationship with Avery is growing stronger every day, but their parents are still giving them ultimatums and trying to keep them apart. Her newly discovered powers have all but disappeared. Benjamin, another young Retroact, is back and has brought with him a painful shared vision and a troubled past. While working together to figure out what the vision means, Zellie discovers that Benjamin is a worthy friend and mentor. If only he could keep his hands off of her – if only she wanted him to…

GLOW: Zellie Wells has mastered her powers and gotten the guy. She’s lived through her parents’ divorce and being separated from Avery. She’s come back from the dead.
What else is there?
Oh, yeah. REVENGE.
Discover how it all ends when Zellie and the gang finally track down Mildred and fight to right the wrongs of The Society’s past, present and future.

New website for contemporary romance!

Greetings! I’ve got a new website ( www.staceywallace.com) especially for my contemporary romance novels – and a new name! Well, I guess if you knew me prior to 2002, then the name Stacey Wallace isn’t new at all, but if you’ve only known me by my books, you’ve got one less last name to type. :)

As many of you who follow the Stacey Wallace Benefiel site know, I got divorced in 2013. This all happened shortly after I published Crossing, and my name was still Stacey Wallace Benefiel, so that’s what I put on the book.

This is also when I discovered that I enjoy writing contemporary romance more than I like writing YA paranormal – especially the kind of PNR I write with all of the time-rewinding and love quadrangles. I am burnt out on trying to figure out how my characters save the world and end up with their soulmate. Again.

So, if you’ve been waiting for Fearless, that’s why it has been taking me so long. I’d written myself into a crazy mess that made me want to cry every time I tried to untangle it. But, take heart, I’ve finally figured it out and after some MEGATON rewrites, Fearless will be out in December.

That’s what’s happening with SWB. Now, I’m not saying I will never write another paranormal story, but I’m taking a two year break from it after the release of Fearless.

In 2016, everything shifts over to contemporary romance. I’ve got two new Open Door books coming out in May and June. One about Gabe’s friend Travis Chandler from Diving In and another about a veterinarian who has a thing for the non-committal vet-tech with secrets, Ryan, from My Remedy. After those two, I’ll be writing like a crazy woman all summer and into fall to bring you a completely new series called(probably?), How We Got Here. Six novellas, each following a different couple from the first time they met through the end of their relationship. All of the couples are intertwined and their stories will be too. Those will be releasing once a week in November and December.

If you’d like to keep up with all of that action, the Stacey Wallace newsletter signup is here. Or, if you’re not a newsletter person, you can also subscribe to the blog. The signup is in the footer on www.staceywallace.com

The Stacey Wallace Benefiel newsletter will still be sent out from time to time. There are two newsletter signups on this website, as well as place to subscribe to the blog posts.

I can hear all three of you wondering aloud about what happened to the Day of Sacrifice series and the Reina Stowe stories. Well, you three are in luck! Each of those series has their own website as well. You can find Day of Sacrifice here, and Reina Stowe here. I am most probably never maybe nah not ever going to write more of those. :)

Okay, I’m off to work at my part-time lunch lady job (that’s a whole other story!) Hope you all have a lovely day and aren’t too confused by my name switcheroo.

Peace,

Stacey

Life isn’t easy. Love is harder. Love cuts, love burns and sometimes love breaks.

But living a half-life, living with regrets, that’s no life at all.

People say we’re broken, not like other people. Maybe that’s true—ability, disability—what’s in a word? So whatever the world throws at us, we won’t stop, we won’t crumble. When we love, we love hard.

Love without limits.

Unconditional is an Anthology from authors Stacey Wallace Benefiel, Jane Harvey-Berrick, Sarina Bowen, Mary Elizabeth, D.Hart, Amber L. Johnson, CJ Lyons, Lauren K. McKellar, Shay Savage, and Magan Vernon.

He stole her lipstick…and her heart.

Twenty-year-old Dani Walker can’t believe her luck when she’s paired up with the gorgeous Liam Garrett as her Acting I scene partner – or when he ends up in her bed. Being a Plain Jane with a mouth on her hasn’t exactly served Dani well in the guy department. In fact, she’s had nothing but one night stands.
Ten years after their first affair, Sebastian and Caroline meet again. Now a successful journalist, Caroline heads out to report from the front lines of the war in Afghanistan. Love is the last thing on her mind when she crosses paths with Marine Chief Sebastian Hunter.

Will this chance encounter reignite the erotic passion of their past, or will the hidden cost of war tear them apart again?
Until his accident, bad boy Hank “Hazardous” Lazarus had everything: a gorgeous girlfriend, a career as a freestyle snowboarder and a spot on the US Olympic team. Could he possibly meet the love of his life in the last place he ever wanted to go–the hospital?
Some days are brighter than others, but Penelope Finnel is invisible behind the colored lenses of her heart-shaped sunglasses. Dillon Decker hopes he is the cure to her madness. But when friend turns to lover, and lover turns to caretaker, how much can either of them tolerate before they’re swallowed whole?
Fate took away Baylor’s past, giving her a second chance at life, but when faced with a choice to move forward, leave it buried, or follow her heart, she struggled with her basic need to survive and be loved. When she met Brandt, he gave her a reason to rebuild a life full of forgotten treasures.

When it comes to love there’s no such thing as conventional.

Everyone thinks Colton Neely is special.Lilly Evans just thinks he’s fascinating.
Their friendship grows into love, even as Colton does not express it in words. But one decision threatens to break down the world that Lilly has tried so hard to integrate into and she must figure out if the relationship can survive if they are apart.
A West Virginia mountain, the middle of a blizzard, killers on his trail…no place for a city boy like Lucky Cavanaugh, an ATF explosives specialist.

Out-manned, out-gunned and shot, he takes Forest Service Wildlife Biologist Vinnie Ry
an hostage until he convinces her that he’s one of the good guys.

Vinnie heals not only his injuries but also his broken heart. But when they uncover a terrorist plot, Lucky is forced to choose between duty and passion, risking the life of the woman he loves in order to save the lives of thousands.
When eighteen-year-old Kate’s father turns up drunk to graduation, she knows something is wrong—really wrong. What she doesn’t expect is a hereditary disease that will turn her life around.

The Problem With Crazy is a story about love and life—about overcoming obstacles, choosing to trust, and learning how to make the choices that will change your life forever.

Isolated on a raft after their ship capsizes, an alcoholic death-match fighter and a young woman have to face the elements as well as their entwined pasts. Bastian can survive in the harshest environments, but can he survive Raine?
Honor student, manager at the campus coffee shop, owner of an impressive sweater collection – Melanie Wilder has it all together. Then John “John Boy” Walden strolls into her life wearing nothing more than an impish grin and all-too-revealing loin cloth.

Soon, make-out sessions replace homework, lust triumphs over work. And to further crumble her perfect world, an unexpected phone call threatens to take away everything she’s worked for.

Crossing is #Free through July 6th!

Crossing, the first novel in the standalone Open Door Love Story series, will be free on all platforms until July 6th! After that it goes up to $3.99. Since the novels are connected, but can be read out of order, leaving Crossing permafree isn’t doing much for the other two books in the series.

I feel like Diving In and My Remedy are losing out because the subject matter of Crossing is a bit, ahem, controversial to say the least. All novels in the ODLS series are “issues” books, but Diving In and My Remedy deal with more mainstream issues and appeal to a wider audience.

But Stacey, you say, I like freeeee boooooooks.

Well, dudes and dudettes, join my newsletter. I give free books away all the times. (There are, like, 80 ways to subscribe to my newsletter up in this jazz, so fill one of them out and we can both rejoice!)

Covers, unleashed!

I suppose I could have called this a cover re-reveal, but I’m feeling dramatic. :) So, why the cover change? I’ve been getting some feedback from fellow authors and some readers that the original covers were too sweet for the content in the books. I agreed, but also really liked the original covers.

After scanning all the New Adult sections on all of the platforms, I knew:

1. The covers needed to be sexier and darker.

2. That my stories are weird, but not step-brother-billionaire-shifter weird. 😉 (For serious, there’s a lot of headless male torsos flanked by wolves and rich stepsisters happening right now.)

The Open Door Love Story series is New Adult Contemporary Romance and is intended for readers 18+.

 

He stole her lipstick…and her heart.

Twenty-year-old Dani Walker can’t believe her luck when she’s paired up with the gorgeous Liam Garrett as her Acting I scene partner – or when he ends up in her bed. Being a Plain Jane with a mouth on her hasn’t exactly served Dani well in the guy department. In fact, she’s had nothing but one night stands. Still, she lets go of her insecurities and falls for Liam, despite feeling like he’s holding something back.

When Dani finally discovers Liam’s secret, she must learn the true meaning of accepting the ones we love for who they are, or risk losing the best thing that’s ever happened to her.

Praise for CROSSING:

“Beautiful. Heart wrenching. A true tale of love. It’ll make you laugh, cry, and have you running out to buy a tube of red lipstick.” RaShelle Workman, bestselling author of the Blood and Snow series

“I’ve never read a novel that made me run the gambit of so many emotions. This is a New Adult novel that can’t be missed!” Magan Vernon, International bestselling author of The Only Exception

“I found CROSSING a very emotional, romantic, sexy, super funny book. I love all the characters. Thank you for letting me read it, Stacey, and trusting me and the world with this wonderful story of yours.” Angela Carlie, author of Dream Smashers

 

 

She was drowning and he was the only one who could save her.

Brynn Garrett is unsure about a lot of things. Was taking a year off between high school and college to learn the family dry cleaning business a smart move or a stall tactic? Is she maintaining a long distance relationship with her boyfriend Andy because she loves him or out of habit? And will her family of four ever be in the same room again since her older brother Liam broke their mother’s heart by simply following his own.
What she does know, is that ever since Gabe Riley rolled into her life with his beautiful smile and his easy confidence, Brynn is seeing herself less as a lost little girl and more as an independent woman who goes after what she wants.
And what she wants is Gabe.

She followed his lead every step of the way.

Love has to be about more than drunk hook-ups and kissing in the rain … right?

After many failed attempts at rehab, Izzy Sundall moves to Oregon from Idaho to live with her aunt and uncle and work at their dog kennel. Fed up with disappointing her family, Izzy vows to never take another drink or sleep with another guy who doesn’t value her. Well, she vows to try.

When she meets Duncan Fieri – clean cut CrossFit God and former dog handler with the military police – Izzy is sure a good guy like him won’t look twice at a bad girl like her. But, he does look at her. Duncan has been where Izzy’s at and he thinks they can help each other navigate the tricky landscape of addiction and falling in love.
That is, until Izzy screws up, because that’s what she does. But maybe this time she’ll find the strength to love herself enough to let Duncan love her too.
