Update on upcoming changes!

Here's the update everyone's been waiting for...




My new pen name and logo will be revealed in the evening on June 12th!


I've got important mama duties first thing in the morning that day, so everything has to wait until later in the day because my heathens will always come first. It's the last day of school and two out of three have "graduation" ceremonies. My youngest will be starting middle school next year and my middle will be starting high school. My oldest will be a senior, and I'm not sure I'm quite ready for her to be a legal adult later this year.


Anyway, let me get to what you really came here for!


SOCIAL MEDIA:

  • Instagram & Facebook - both will be updated to my new pen name.

  • Pinterest - the name will be updated and I'll keep making boards for book inspiration.

  • Spotify - will not be going anywhere. My books wouldn't be my books without the playlists.

  • Reader Group - will remain "Blackwood Babes."

  • Twitter/X - I already don't use it, so I don't plan on starting now. I probably need to delete my account over there.

  • TikTok - I have an account, but don't use it. I'm not a TikTok person. I'm going to keep it for now and update the name, but I'm making no promises on actually posting content anytime soon.


I'm still figuring out to go about getting new pages for Amazon, Goodreads, and Bookbub. Once I have links, you'll get them. Of course, I'm also updating my website, but that's a work in progress in between everything else.


BOOKS:

All of my books will be reformatted (ebook & paperbacks), including the front and back matter, and republished under my new pen name. The only exception to this is Until Lexi. No changes are being made to this book and it will remain under the Kate Stacy name.

  • Long Road Home - will not be republished immediately. I plan to do some revisions, but will eventually republish with a new cover.

  • Supernova, Singularity, & Scintillation - no changes aside from the name, unless I decide to change the back of the paperback covers (still deciding)

  • Whiskey Temptations - new cover (the entire series has new covers and I can't wait to show you!)

  • Then I Saw You - new cover, and possibly a new title

  • Ship Happens - new cover, and possibly a new title

  • The Book Boyfriend - new cover

  • A Vegas Dare - new cover and title

  • Engage - new cover and title; also, some aspects of the story will be changed, such as certain character names and locations, but the overall story will be the same


Those are the overall changes I'm making, but they won't all happen at once.

Originally, I was going to wait until later this year or next year before moving to a new pen name, but I didn't want to continue publishing books under my current one and make more work for myself later. I'd rather do it now and get it done so I can keep moving forward.


I also hope to have a definitive release date for Bourbon Truths soon. I have one in mind, but until I'm 100% certain I can make it happen, I'm not saying a word.


I still owe several people paperback copies from the 2023 BRAE pre-orders that I was unable to fulfill. I'm not going to apologize again because saying "I'm sorry" doesn't make it better that I've made you all wait so long for this book.

I've already promised to send these readers a free copy of Scotch Promises after it releases as a thank you for being so understanding, but since I'm changing my pen name before finishing the series, I'm also going to send them a new copy of Whiskey Temptations so they'll have a matching set. It's my way of trying to make things right because it's been almost a year and no one should have to wait that long for something they paid for.


I think that's all I've got for now.

I'm leaving on Monday to head to Vegas for Be Love, Spread Love and I won't be back until June 11th. After that, it's full steam ahead.


If I missed something, or you have a question, just let me know.

I've always tried to be as transparent as possible and I'm not about to change that now.


Much love to all of you!
