Pax Tate is back!

My Peace, the continuation of Pax Tate’s story from IF YOU STAY, is live today!

Happy endings must be worked for.

Pax Tate used to be an effed up asshole, but you’d never know it now.

He’s got a sexy wife, their own little family, a cozy home, and a successful career.

Everything is perfect.

Until his past rears its ugly head.

Pax will do anything to protect his family,

even if he destroys himself in the process.

 **BUY ON AMAZON **

Dear Readers,

I announced recently that I based the character of Pax Tate on my twenty-two year old son, Gunner.

Gunner is a drug addict.  He’s currently in rehab, and he’s doing well, but it’s been a long roller-coaster of a journey to get here.

Pax’s personality traits are Gunner’s.  Even though Gunner’s moods have been mercurial because of drugs, deep down he is strong and funny, charming and sweet.  I wanted that to come through in Pax.

(Of course, when I’m writing the “sexy time” scenes, I’m definitely picturing Jensen Ackles or Alex Pettyfer in my head.  🙂

Pax’s heart is as deep as the ocean, even though sometimes, he can be an asshole.  I think readers realized that in IF YOU STAY, and that book sat on the New York Times for twelve weeks back in 2013.

Readers have asked for more Pax over the years, and it is only now, that I wanted to add more to the story. It is only now that I have come to terms with the fact, based on my son’s own life, that happy endings must be worked for.

I hope you love Pax’s story.

I wrote it with the ending I want for my own son, one of hope, of happiness and of good health.

I will give anything to make that true.

From my pen to God’s ear.

I hope you enjoy the story.  Thank you for reading!

XO,

Courtney

My Peace

 

In 2013, my book, IF YOU STAY sat on the New York Times bestsellers list for twelve straight weeks. Readers fell in love with troubled Pax Tate. For years, I have been asked to write more of his story.

For years, I didn’t want to.

Pax Tate’s character is based on my son, Gunner. His personality traits, his issues with drugs.

I wanted to leave Pax’s story as a fairytale happy ending. But through my journey with my son, I have realized that happy endings must be worked for, and sometimes, they don’t come easy.

MY PEACE is the continuation of Pax Tate’s story. It releases Friday, although it is up for pre-order now. (The pre-order price is $2.99, and that price will return to it’s normal $3.99 on Friday.)

You can find it exclusively on Amazon:

Day 2 of IYS Two Year Anniversary Shennanigans!

BeautifullyBroken-Feb15promo-CreateMemeAndWin

Happy Day two of the Two Year Anniversary of IF YOU STAY!

Woohooooo!

Today, we’re having a graphic meme contest, which I have to tell you, is usually my favorite of all contests.  I love seeing the artsy things that everyone comes up with!

For today, create a graphic meme using one of these quotes:

  • “She’s a breath of fresh air.  I may be the big bad wolf, but even wolves need to breathe.”
  • “You’ve seen me at my worst.  Maybe you should see me at my best.” “And when are you at your best?” “In bed.”
  • “I need him to breathe.”

You can share the meme on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, but make sure to tag it with #LoveNeverFails so that we can find it when we’re choosing winners.  We’ll choose Three winners next Friday, so this contest will last for a week.  🙂

Good luck!  I can’t wait to see your #LoveNeverFails memes!  🙂

Exciting things this week!!

Hey guys,

So I’ve got a lot going on this week, and just thought I’d better tell you about everything in one place.

First, the audio rights have been bought for The Nocte Trilogy by Audible.  So if you love to listen to your books, they’ll be available soon for your listening pleasure. I’ll let you know dates when I have them.

Second, VERUM released yesterday, as you probably noticed.  But just in case you didn’t, I thought I’d mention it again.  You can find it here:

Get VERUM (Nocte Trilogy #2):
Amazon
 | iBooks | Barnes & Noble | Kobo

Add it on Goodreads

Third, NOCTE is on sale through today, but tomorrrow the price will return to $3.99.  So if you haven’t already read it, snap it up today before the price returns to normal.

Get NOCTE, the first book in the trilogy:
Amazon
 | iBooks | Barnes & Noble | Kobo

Add it on Goodreads

Fourth, my publisher just let me know that they’re putting IF YOU STAY on sale for $.99 in honor of Valentine’s Day.  So if you haven’t been introduced to the sexiness that is Pax Tate, now is certainly the time.

Get IF YOU STAY, the first book in the Beautifully Broken series:
Amazon | iBooks | Barnes & Noble | Kobo

Add it on Goodreads

Fifth, I’ll be at my publisher’s New Adult Night tomorrow night from 7:20-7:40 pm EST to chat about Romance and hot guys.  Because…romance and hot guys.  🙂   Come see us HERE.  

And last but not least, I’ve been asked a lot when the third and final book of The Nocte Trilogy, LUX,will be released.

Officially, I’m saying May/June, because writing VERUM fried my brain.  But, I’m aiming for earlier, like maybe April.  We’ll see.  But definitely  sign up for my newsletter to get updates on the release date.  I’ll let you know when to watch for it.  🙂

I hope you all have a fabulous week!!
