Stephani Hecht is a happily married mother of two. Born and raised in Michigan, she loves all things about the state, from the frigid winters to the Detroit Red Wings hockey team. Go Wings!

Jessie Potts When is amazon going to have A Christmas for Ava to buy?

message 18: by Jessie

Jessie Potts Thank you!!! Book 17 is your best one yet, Have you considered putting all the books together (or 5 at a time) in paperback? I would love to get autographed copies!

And whoever chooses your covers yum!

message 17: by Milton

Milton Esitubi Mary Anita And The Second Liberation In Kenya Get entertained with this book full of African flavour and passion, enjoy reading about the culture, social life and politics in Kenya

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions so i am jumping the gun a bit but i was seeing if Shane's Fury was possibly available a few hours early (It wasn't :() and saw this cover Vengeance Paid With Blood  by Stephani Hecht and uh was wondering if you had written a blurb yet?

Stephani Hecht Bubbles-I agree, Kevin made me mad, too. LOL

Perpetua-I'm so glad you liked it. ~hugs~ Shane is going to be very pissed and that's going to make for some interesting situations.

Perpetua OMG Stephani!!! Its 3.25am here and I nearly woke the whole house shouting at the screen!! LOL LOVED LOVED Shane and Trever and OMG is Shane gonna be pissed in the next one!

**whine** April is soooo far away!

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions that is good Kevin pissed me off so I want him to feel bad. Now if i can just wait till April

Stephani Hecht LOL You can beg for books all you want. It's nice to feel wanted.

Kevin is going to feel immense guilt over that conversation. He's going to realize that he truly underestimated Trevor's character.

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions Oh and after the way Kevin (or Kyle? You know the panther guy) talked to Trevor last I expect to see some major guilt/worrying from him

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions Oh i can imagine the cobra taking/touching what is his will be very aggravating to Shane. Two months seems like so long away. I was hoping my begging smiley would bump it up to tomorrow since extasy released this one a day early (which made me happy) but now I need a shifter story on the 15th.

I probably seem greedy after begging for more dragon eye stories last week. It is only cause we love your books

Stephani Hecht LOL I love the smiley face guy. Shane's next book will be out April 15th. He's going to be a tad pissed that somebody dared to attack Trevor, too. So some of his scenes are going to be intense.

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions You're such a tease... now the most asked question you will get is when is Shane's next book out? cliff hangers are so mean

Oh and I am asking when is the next one out? soon i hope [image error]

yep i am begging

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions Happy dance! That is awesome. I look forward to getting to read them. Thank you

Stephani Hecht Okay, you convinced me. I'll try to find a way to write a couple dragon shifter books before the year is over.

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions for sure i mean his uncle really needs to be brought down a bit and all those sexy dragons looking for their dragon eyes, i would by more for sure

Stephani Hecht Bubbles!!! I'm so glad you liked it. I've been wanting to write some more dragon shifter stories. I think I may have to find a way to fit one or two books into my writing schedule.

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions So I just read Dragon's Eye and I loved it of course. any chance you are doing more of those?

Stephani Hecht Hey guys! I can't believe I haven't already "friended" you. I'm such a slacker.
