PREORDER: Inspired By You

Hey, everyone! We are less than two weeks away from the release of Inspired By You, and I wanted to make sure you all had a chance to preorder before it releases on May 10th, 2018! Inspired By You’s preorders are available everywhere, but you will only find the sample to read early on iBooks!

Grab your preorder today by clicking on your preferred eBook retailer here: Amazon, iBooks, Kobo, and Nook!

I’m so excited to share this next Love in the City installment with you! The whole gang is involved, as they have been throughout the series. You’ll read about how they are as parents, how their relationships are continuing to grow, and of course, the hilarity and problems that ensue along the way!

As such, I hope you preorder the book today so you don’t miss Max and Whitley’s story! It’s a single parent/opposites attract romance you do not want to miss!

In the meantime, check out some teasers from Inspired By You below, and feel free to help spread the word by sharing the preorder links and the graphic(s) posted here! Also, I’ve posted an exclusive Inspired By You excerpt in my Nuss’ Navy group on Facebook, so if you’re not a member, please be sure to join and check it out! I’ll also be doing some exclusive giveaways just for my Nuss’ Navy members when Inspired By You releases; another added bonus to joining my group!

More teasers to come, I promise!

I want to give a huge THANK YOU to all the book bloggers who have signed up to help promote Inspired By You on release day and the days to follow. Those who signed up for ARCs will be getting them soon! We have over 100 blogs participating, and I am so thrilled to have all your support! So, thank you so very much for your participation!

To my hometown readers in Russell, I’ve donated signed paperbacks of the first five (5) Love in the City books as well as some adult coloring books as door prizes for the Russell Chamber’s Ladies Night – Vendor Fair that’s happening this coming Friday, May 4th! I hope to see you there!

May you all have a great week and don’t forget to preorder Inspired By You!

XO,

Steph

New Release + Signings

I’m so excited to announce that Shaded With Love Volume 2 is now available on Amazon and all proceeds will go to St. Jude’s! The pages that Jessica designed for each of us involved look absolutely amazing, so you do not want to miss out on this coloring book! Spend hours relaxing while you color the day away! And what’s even more exciting: it’s already a #1 best-seller on Amazon!

Be sure to like the Shaded With Love Facebook Page because lots of takeovers have already be going on throughout release day and will continue into this evening, which means lots of giveaways! I wasn’t able to participate as I worked all day and the evening time slots were spoken for already, but don’t let that deter you from participating in the release day party on the page! It’s sure to be a blast!

Next, I promised you signing talk! I recently had back-to-back signings these past two weekends in March, and I had a wonderful time at both! First, I was in Kansas City for Kinky in KC 2017, where I was able to meet the wonderful Laurelin Paige! She’s one of my favorite authors, and just getting to talk shop with her in regards to writing and book covers was a dream come true. If you haven’t read her books yet or had an opportunity to meet her, I highly recommend it! Thia Finn sat near me, and she was so entertaining throughout the day; I hope I get to see her again at another signing in the future! It was also fun being able to actually DRIVE to a book signing! Kansas City is only four hours away from my hometown, so it was nice not having to worry about flying and packing all my books and swag a certain way to make it all fit! I’m definitely looking forward to KIKC in 2018!

My second signing took place in Raleigh, North Carolina for the Authors in the City event! The list of amazing people I met there is endless! I started off by meeting some bloggers and authors, some that were new to me, some that I’ve been friends with for months, and they were so friendly and fun, I’m thankful to have finally met them in person! Stephanie and all her gals at Stephanie’s Book Reports put on an amazingly, well-organized event that I’m so grateful they gave me the opportunity to attend or else I wouldn’t have made the connections with the authors and readers that I did! Isabelle Peterson has the most bubbly personality I’ve ever seen and I absolutely love her for it; she can bring a smile to your face no matter what! Samantha Chase has the best swag (i.e. chiclet gum in the small rectangular boxes with her book covers on the outside so they look like tiny books! GENIUS!) I met a fellow author and ginger, Rachel Lacey, and I’m so excited to read her books; definitely check them out if you haven’t yet. Sidonia Rose and Mr. Sidonia Rose were an absolute joy to sit across from, and it’s been awesome following them to each of the same three signings we’ve all been to this year. And…you guys, I finally got to meet Sawyer Bennett and she even knew who I was when I introduced myself. I could have died right there. She’s one of the women in this industry that I seriously look up to, and it was wonderful to finally meet her in person. She’s been so supportive of my writing career, donating to my release day parties and allowing me to takeover in her Facebook group. I definitely crossed off a bucket list item when I got to hug her! Fingers crossed I get to attend AITC 2018!

But the absolute best part of book signings: meeting all the readers! Your love and passion for reading brings me joy unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I love getting to talk books with you and connecting with you over our mutual love of reading. I love watching as you meet your favorite author in person and the elation that comes over you, because I’ve experienced that too (see above comment about Sawyer Bennett and several others)! I love putting faces to names I’ve seen here on my website or on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram, and getting to know you on an all new level, even if we’re not discussing books. I love that even if you haven’t read my books, you’re willing to listen to me tell you about them and possibly check them out in the future. I love that you stop at my table just to tell me you love my book covers. I love that you share your book blogger information, because I truly do want to follow you everywhere and include you in everything I do because if it weren’t for book bloggers, I wouldn’t even be attending book signings. So, you, the reader, make these events the true magic that they are, and I thank each and every one of you who attends! If you haven’t been able to attend a book signing, I highly recommend that you do. You will meet people who are just like you, who love to read just as much as you do, and you will love it!

With that all being said, I’m also so happy to be home. I’m done traveling for the year which means my sole focus can be on writing more books! I’m taking a small break to relax and catch up on some reading, and then I’ll be writing my little heart out like crazy for the rest of the year in hopes of getting the last two Love in the City books in your hands, where they deserve to be!

I think that’s all for now! I hope you check out the authors I’ve mentioned above if you haven’t already, and don’t forget to grab the #1 best-selling coloring book on Amazon, Shaded With Love Volume 2!

Happy reading (and coloring)!

Steph

BLOGGER FEEDBACK:

“Challenged by You is one of those stories that will remain with you for a long time. It is going to burrow into your heart, break it just a little, and make it swell with love. Steph Nuss tackles a difficult topic in this book and she does it beautifully.” – Malissa at Reads All the Books

“It’s an emotional roller coaster, both heartbreaking and heartwarming. I experienced a gamut of emotions throughout this book including laughter and tears. I read this book in one sitting, and literally could not put it down even when I had tears streaming down my face.” Kathryn at Ebook Indulgence

“If you are looking for a book that will cause you to cry and I mean UGLY cry this is your book.You can enjoy this book with a cup of coffee in a nice custom wood furniture room. My heart was an emotional mess while reading this book. Was it worth it? 100% yes and I don’t generally enjoy books that gut me.” – Venus at Bedknobs and Book Babes

I’d like to extend a HUGE thanks to Southern Belle Promotions for hosting my release day blitz and all the book bloggers who participated in helping make today such a special occasion by spreading the word about Challenged By You! The blog tour will start September 4th! I’m so grateful for the SBP girls for putting everything together and making sure the book bloggers have everything they need, but if I missed personally thanking one of you, please know your post didn’t go unnoticed and that I greatly appreciate it!

I’d also like to thank my sailors in my Nuss’ Navy group on Facebook! I spent the whole day working at my other job, and you all strived to share my release in places I wouldn’t have even thought about sharing it, so thank you for being the best group of readers a girl can rely on when she’s working to make that money! It means so much to me! If you’re not part of the group and would like to be click here!

Lastly, to you, the readers, thank you so much for taking a chance on Paige’s story. For wanting her story be told so much that you sent me encouraging messages over the past year asking about her. I know it’s a tough one to read, as you can tell from the snippets of the reviews above and from what I’ve already mentioned about it. If you’ve gone through something similar to Paige or know someone who has or simply fear the same fears, just know that I wrote this story for you, so you could have a character you could relate to, to laugh and cry with even when times get tough.

Happy Reading!

Xo,

Steph

P.S. – The rest of the series is still on sale, so please be sure to grab them while they’re so cheap! It won’t last too much longer!

I also didn’t want to interrupt anyone’s time with Mr. Grey himself. Happy Early Birthday, Christian; it’s a honor to share a day with you!

Anyway, back to the giveaway . . . I’m giving away this cute crossbody filled with signed copies of my first three books to one lucky reader! The giveaway is opened internationally.

Seriously, thank you from the bottom of my heart for making another year so special for me! After obtaining the rights to my books and self-publishing them, I was terrified I wouldn’t be able to do this on my own, but I quickly realized I’m not alone in this. I have my readers, and it’s because of you that I get to do what I love and share my characters’ stories with you!

Cheers to many more years!

 

Seven 11 Blog Hop: Vanilla, It’s Too Blah

With the release of Pleasured By You (Love in the City, #3) coming up on March 20th (NINE MORE DAYS), I’ve decided to post a teaser from Fletcher Haney for my Seven 11 Blog Hop post. If you’re new to my blog, the Seven 11 Blog Hop is where a group of authors post seven-line teasers from their current work-in-progress or published work on the 11th of each month. So, please be sure to check out the other authors’ posts! You may just find a new author you love!

Pleasured By You teaser

“What!” Bayler objected, glaring at me. “You can’t just have vanilla. It’s too blah. Pick again.”

I laughed and turned to her. It was kind of cute watching her get all excited over her creation. She’d baked and decorated Carter and Elly’s wedding cake, and it’d looked like a work of art. But I couldn’t let her know that. “Then, Ms. Easy Bake, what do you suggest?”

“Hey, I’m no Easy Bake,” she retorted, smacking my bicep. She glanced at the tray again and pointed to a couple of pieces. “Give us two of the white chocolate peanut butter.”

For more teasers from Pleasured By You, join Nuss’ Navy today!

Pleasured By You is available for preorder on Amazon and iBooks, and you don’t need to read the first two books in the series to enjoy it!

Bayler

“So you have a toothbrush here now?” I asked curiously, in my least bitchiest tone. But that was my bathroom. How could I not notice his things starting to takeover? Okay, it was just a toothbrush but still. What’s next? His clothes needing a drawer? His guy things taking up half of my closet? No. Not happening.

“No,” he said, smiling back at me. “This is your toothbrush.”

“WHAT!” Jumping out of bed, I ran to the bathroom, pulled the brush out of his hands and noticed the pink and white handle, indicating it was in fact my toothbrush that he was using on his perfectly straight, pearly whites. “Why the hell are you using my toothbrush?! That is so gross!”
