Phasing Out the Blog


To my faithful reader,

Thank you for walking the path of this blog with me, but it’s almost time for the road to change. The blog has been a lot of fun to write and I’ve enjoyed spending time with you, but my social interactions online have shifted. I need to find where that road leads.

I hope you’ll follow me in that other direction. I’ve started a private Facebook group which I named Stacey’s Novel Family. (Because, hey, it’s all about creating the family you want.) If you have Facebook, and would like to be a part of that group you can either click on the link or reach out to me on Facebook. I’ll give away swag, share inside writing stuff like deleted scenes, and who knows what else, but I promise we’ll have fun.

Or you can follow my newsletter, if you already don’t. That’s where I will continue to share stories about the Noodges, the Coffee King, and my struggles or antics with aging.

The website will remain right here so you can always contact me, check out new releases, and find spots where I’ll be signing.

I hope to see you soon. The door is always open. Just walk right in and make yourself at home. Oh, don’t forget to bring the cannolis. Wink. 

All the best,

  1. Wishing you all the best, Stacey. I do think that most endeavors eventually run their course, and it’s important to acknowledge when that time has come. For every door that closes another opens and the other way around. Enjoy.

    1. Thank you, Diana! I appreciate the kind words and your visits to my blog. I’ll see where the path leads me. I’m hoping for some surprises along the way.

  2. I’ll miss your musings and personal anecdotes here, Stacey, but the great thing about technology is this: There are so many ways in which we can express ourselves nowadays — such a variety of outlets and forums — and we all need to find the media that are right for us. In a way, I came to a similar realization when I decided to withdraw from screenwriting to pursue novels. I’d dedicated a lot of years to my screenwriting career, and found some success, but I wasn’t enjoying myself, and I certainly wasn’t fulfilling my own potential. And though there was a bit of a learning curve to blogging and prose, I rediscovered my enthusiasm for the craft through those outlets.

    So, all that said, I’m excited for what lies ahead for you! And of course, as your social-media pal, I’m happy to help in any way I can spread the word on the unfolding saga of Heritage River

    1. Let me start by saying, “thank you!” I have said it before, but I will say it again. I very much appreciate your time and attention to this blog. Unfortunately, you’re one of the few who interact here. If I had more of you, I’d keep going. You won’t be able to respond to the newsletter, but we always have email! And if something that comes up that warrants a blog post, the website isn’t going anywhere. If you ever join Facebook, you can stop by readers’ page. We’re having some fun there.

      1. I love our shoptalk, Stacey, and I’m forever grateful to this blog for being the conduit through which we became friendly colleagues! And I second what you said: The website isn’t going anywhere. It’s one of many tools at your disposal to express yourself should you need it.

        And if I ever manage to catch up to the year 2010 and get on Facebook, for sure I’ll join your readers’ page!
