Celebrating A New Magical Sword Book From Stacey Kennedy

Today at our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating Stacey Kennedy's new release FIRST AND LAST, book four in her The Magical Sword Series.

Stacey's novels are light-hearted fantasy with heart squeezing, thigh-clenching romance, and even give a good chuckle every now and again.

Her journey as a writer began as a way to keep her brain alive since being a stay at home mom can sometimes be a little...let's say numbing. It was an escape from screaming kids, dirty diapers and plain old mom duty.

It started as a hobby, but as the stories progressed it became a passion. Now, Stacey indulges at nap time, especially the juicy bits! Every mom needs a good thrill!

FIRST AND LAST The Magical Sword - Book Four by Stacey Kennedy

One woman, one bond, one final battle ... can even Nexi Jones defeat the deepest darkness of evil?

Meet Nexi Jones - Witch, Guardian and now, Lady of the Underworld. Embracing her new role, Nexi begins the task of changing a world led by darkness. But not everyone is happy to see her rise to power. Before long, a resistance within the Underworld is forming.

As the darkness begins to close in around her, Nexi's magical abilities flourish in response - forcing Nexi to dig down deeper into her past to discover this source and why she was gifted with such incredible strength.

With her Guardian, Kyden by her side, Nexi will meet her greatest challenge yet as she begins to discover that fate might have been a bitch, but she was a bitch with a plan.

  5. Hi Everyone!!!

    I'm really excited to be here! My first Cyber Launch Party!! Very cool stuff!!

    The Magical Sword series is Nexi's life. It's the journey of her discovering her magical abilities and also discovering herself. These books are emotional, but are fun too! She's a sassy character but has a sweet soul too. The novels you could say are watching Nexi's life come full circle. And they were a blast to write!!

    Tracey and greenduckie - Anne Cain designed all the covers for The Magical Sword Series. I was lucky enough to be able to choose the model for this cover and when I saw her...I knew she was the perfect Nexi. Anne did a fabulous job of including the pentagram that holds special meaning in this book. When she sent the cover along to me I was floored. It's a very beautiful cover and I still stare at it in awe!

    Chrissie--thanks for the love!! *hugs*

    What is your favorite part of being an author?

  9. This comment has been removed by the author.

  10. Hey Christina,

    My favourite part is the creative process. Heck, I like to read as much as I do write. So, I really enjoy reading how the story unfolds as I go along. If you get a chance to read the'll know why. The stories are fast paced, filled with danger and passion. It's a fun ride as I tell their lives!

  11. Congrats on the new release Stacey.

    This is book 4..plans for any more?


  12. FIRST and LAST is the final novel from Nexi, but I've already finished TAINTED BLOOD, The Enchanted Sight Book One which will take off where FIRST and LAST leaves off. Nexi and Kyden are secondary characters as Sabi and Ryker lead the way in the new series. So, this isn't really a goodbye from those characters, just a see ya later!

  13. Congrats on your new release!
    Do you know how many books will be in your new series?

  14. Congratulations on your new release. I've not read any of your books yet. What genre's do you write?

  15. I have not had a chance to read this series so starting with the first book would be good. I enjoy PNR.

  16. Hi Stacey. Congrats on the newest release. I am eager to start reading it soon.

    Do you think you will ever write in a different time period?

  17. Estella - I suspect there will be 3-4 books in the next series. But I'm not a plotter so I really have no idea what will happen until I get down to writing them.

    Sherry - I write urban fantasy romance and paranormal erotic romance.

    Danielle - HA! I am in awe of people who can write historical novels. I just wrote a short story for an anthology I'm going to be a part of and it has a ghost who is from the civil war. That is about as historical as I'll go. :)

  18. congrats on your new release. If you could have dinner with any one person living, dead, real, or imaginary who would it be and why.

  19. Great question, Pam!! I'd love to meet Katie MacAlister. Anyone who writes novels like she does has to be one heck of a fun lady!! Plus, I'd love to talk books with her. She's one of my favourite authors!!
