Special Monday Edition Guest Post From Author Stacy Eaton

Stacy EatonMy friend Stacy Eaton was kind enough to stop by and share some info on her new book. As for the comments regarding handcuffs, I take the Fifth! (I think it’s the donuts talking, personally :)   )

Handcuffs, Tasers and Writing!

It’s a pleasure to be here today on Ed’s blog! Thank you for the invite, my man! I know the only reason you did invite me over was because you have a thing for my cuffs and my Taser. But that’s okay, well kinda, actually… that’s freaking odd as hell! But I still think you’re awesome – odd or not!

I met Ed a few years ago, and when he found out that I worked in law enforcement, I think he got this, like permanent mental hard-on about the fact that I use these things on people. Not sure how many times he actually asked me to use them on him, but it was probably close to a dozen.  But, hey! Whatever turns you on, right?  Or turns him on, I should say.

Anyway – Ed, you know I love you and I really appreciate you letting me jump on your blog here to talk about my latest release, Six Days of Memories that was officially released on June 30th.

For those of you who have never read my books, and this one makes my eighth release, all of my books have elements of law enforcement. Generally, at least one of the characters is a police officer or a detective. Because I have been in this field for almost 14 years now, I have a lot of real life working knowledge of how it all goes down. None of this fluffy-foo-foo stuff you see on the television crime shows. And in case you are wondering, we are not going to take DNA samples of your vehicle if someone breaks in and steals your wallet. Sucks to be you! Next time, lock your car doors and take your wallet inside with you. That test costs several hundred dollars and takes like 6 months to have completed, not 6 minutes.

Anyway, Six Days of Memories stars Detective Natasha Foster. She works for a small town police department, similar to where I work. She decides to respond to an accident scene when she hears that her two patrol officers are stuck on a domestic.  Actually, the real reason she responds is to get off the phone with Mrs. Barnes who is neurotic and crying on the phone about being taken in a scam. Either way, Tasha shows up at the scene and this is what she finds:

A luxury car crashed over an embankment into a creek. The male driver is unconscious, the female passenger is dead, there is a bag full of money in the back seat, no one has any identification on them, and when the driver wakes up, he has no idea who he is. Oh, wait! I forgot to mention, there’s a body in the trunk with a bullet hole to the head and the driver is carrying a firearm with the serial number filed off.

Okay – so that’s how the story starts off. The first several chapters are very police procedural. Almost all of what I write in those first few chapters, I have done at one time or another. Now that I am a detective and off the streets, I spend a lot of time sifting through paperwork and putting the pieces together, just like Tasha will do in Six Days of Memories.

But this isn’t just a crime novel, nope. There is a strong chemistry between Tasha and the ‘no-name’ man who she nicknames Jay. Okay, I know I hear some of you guys whining, oh crap, here comes the romance. Yep, you’re right. There is romance, but the story is strong enough to even keep you men interested. I promise guys, there isn’t any mushy love scenes. Jay’s a pretty upstanding guy with great morals and a heavy lust for Tasha, and you might even learn a thing or two about how to romance a woman if you listen to what he says. J

Anyway, I learned a long time ago to write what I know. I know law enforcement so that’s what I write. Even in my paranormal stories, I use the knowledge that I have to make the stories more realistic.

This particular story came to me in the shower. Ed, stop! Get your head out of the gutter.  Normally and idea pops into my head when I am getting ready in the morning and by the time I get to work, I have a firm grasp on the plot. That’s what happened here. Only when I sit down and start to feel out the characters, they take over and they are the ones who write the story, I just use my fingers to type it out.

I’ve enjoyed being here today! Thank you Ed – And thank you to your readers. I’ll be checking back to see anyone had any questions – so if you do, please leave them for me.

Hope you all check out Six Days of Memories. You can read the first chapter on my website: www.StacyEaton.com.
