So right now I am working on multiple books for next year. The ones coming out this year are written and in various stages of editing. They go back and forth between editor and myself as changes are made until we are both insane and cannot take it anymore. In between those I write for next year. I have a bunch of stand alones for next year, as well as a couple of wrap ups and epilogue stories for series I am currently releasing.
Now on to antics. Lately heat wave after heat wave has been hitting us and in Vermont weather is not usually so intense...until winter I mean. So we do not all have A.C. and when the heat waves first hit I did 2 things. 1. order a portable A.C. (it has saved our lives because otherwise I would have melted). 2. taken naps to get rid of the headaches that ensue from the temperature being 30 degrees higher than normal.
Well my cat Diana likes to nap on top of me. And luckily she is the lighter of the 2 (same litter but Diana is 10lbs or muscle because she always plays and Freya who is 20lbs of lazy cat that only knows how to snuggle up against your leg and sleep). Anyway I tried to get up from said nap to hydrate and she stood up on my chest, pushed the blanket back over my shoulders and neck, laid down and purred at me. The sound was happy and relaxing but the face was like nope we staying right here mommy. My hubby heard me rustling and came in the room in time to see it. He laughed. So hard he had to sit on the bed or fall over.
That did not deter here. Every time I tried to push the blankets off me or down she would use her paws to stop them and dead weight herself. So we know for sure she is a mama's girl (she has determined I am for snuggles and the child is for play). A picture was not got, mostly because I couldn't move without squishing her and my husband was laughing to hard and picking on me to bother with a camera. But I will post a cute kitty pic anyway so you can see my snuggle bug.
P.S. Diana also likes to become a stuffed animal on my son's platform bed and steal the hubby's desk chair after she is told not to.
Next time I will show you the expanse that is her sister. She is a big love bug but she only loves me. Everyone else is tolerated. Until you pet her around the ears. Then Freya loves you lol.
Hope everyone is handling our new version of life good. If not hang in there and many mental hugs!

So my next 2 releases are projects I have been secretly working on. One is 2 stories for a dark fairytale anthology and the other is a stand alone YA/SCI-FI. The dark fairytale I do not actually know the release date. It has been pushed back so many times and I still have yet to get promo material for it (all my stuff was sent in for the original publish date of last year so I swear its not my fault!!!).
I can however tell you about the new young adult book I will be releasing. So read the blurb, look at the pretty cover Averi Hope Designs did for me and if it sounds like your cup of tea, or a friends, click the link below and pre-order now!
Genius parents do not mean all their decisions are brilliant. In Fact, for Alana, it leads to the most dangerous, and adventurous, thing to ever happen to her.
While visiting the Grand Canyon with her family she ends up on another planet with alien Elves! The world seems so nice but it's a world of survival of the fittest. The smartest and strongest rule this world where outsiders are not always welcome.
Some of the aliens, the scientist Malik and the king he works for, hope to integrate them into the society. Alana is all for it, especially once she meets the enigma that is Malik's son Kalik. Now they are humans…on an alien planet…with hot Elves (or one in particular).
Can she make herself part of this world and if so will it accept her becoming one of them... or will she die trying?
UPDATE: Amazon disbanded the series page because I had novellas in there. They apparently are not allowed to have the word novella on the cover or title page on the book. I however do not wish to lie and say it is a full length novel when it is not and get people's hopes up. So until that changes there will be no series page for my series with novellas in them (AKA all of them I think). So instead please use the series page on my website to get to the book pages you want. Happy reading!
You read that right! The entire Shifting Blood series is .99 cents per book from June 5th to June 9th! Get them on sale while you can! Or read free in KU! Click the pic below to get taken to the series page!
Amazon will no longer allow any novella or short to be included in a series page. As a result many of my series pages will be missing books and so I am going to try to get the series pages deleted. That is where you go on amazon for information on the series order and if its wrong its useless. Please use this website for such things. Until they change that rule I see no point in readers missing out and getting confused by them so please bear with me. If you feel bad for me, or any author, please complain to amazon!
She wanted peace. Her enemies brought her war.
Titaia Angelfyre, the most powerful Seraph of Flames, proved her might and earned herself a crown. She’s a coronation away from sealing her fate to rule and protect all angels and their lands.
But when she’s attacked by darkness only heard of in legends, Titaia will be forced to run and make a life altering decision. How far will she go to protect the angels and save her own life?
Herein lies the tale of how the end began from the beginning.
Praise for Seraphim Falling
"This novella from ya fantasy author, Stephanie BwaBwa is a must read with a vivid world, a focus on angels and a completely originally magical system. I fell in love with the characters, the story and the plight of Elledelle. One thing that BwaBwa does a fantastic job of is crafting characters that you become emotionally attached to. I can't wait to find out what happens next in this series!" - Angela J. Ford, International bestselling Fantasy Author
"I was given the honor and opportunity to read and review the new work of Stephanie BwaBwa and I found that I could not put the book down. I was reading it on my phone on the bus and train headed to and from work. I finished the novel yesterday and I am in love with Cinder and Titaia. If you enjoy a good story, please read Stephanie's book. You will enjoy the journey!!" - Dennis Moss
"Welcome to Elledelle, the angelic realm—a world unlike any I’ve read before. Seraphim Falling follows Titaia Scarlethorn Angelfyre as she prepares for her coronation as the Chosen Saerel of Flames.
Filled with Seraphims, Cherubims, Archims, and bone-chilling Shadowlords, this story explodes in action from the very start, and while the world-building unfurls at a mind-boggling pace, delivering wonder after wonder, the characters own the spotlight.
When a great evil of legend arises and drenches Titaia’s court in blood, she flees with her mighty Guardian, Cinder Ellenyus Starryder (a male I’m seriously crushing on) with whom she shares a Soul-Bond. Tataia must be hidden from the evil Shadowlords at all cost—and the price of keeping her safe will rip your heart right out of your chest.
Seraphim Falling is a tale of love, sacrifice, and loss, but it’s also a story of great hope.
This prequel for The Seraphim Resistance left me aching for Cinder, Titaia, and their world, and I’m eagerly awaiting the rest of their story."- Miri C Golden, Fantasy Author
Some of you might have noticed my website is different. Well I have been working on rearranging my schedule and release dates. As a writer some of what we do is because of sales and some is because we love it. You will find that sometimes you write certain genres better than you do others.
Because of those two things I am stalling my IvyWood series and my Awkward Undeath series. I will come back to them, I cannot give a when, but I will. For now though I will be moving on to projects I am more excited about, and have more experience with the genres. I think I need to grow more before I will go back to those others.
I am sorry if any of you are invested in either series, and you can email me to get an overview of what I plan if you really cannot wait, but I would prefer you just hold on for a bit.
Thanks for your support everyone and happy reading!
I love to write. In my spare time I nerd out on manga and anime. I read...a lot. When I am pried away from that I like photography (by that I mean a digital camera that I use to document my family's life obsessively). I also like nature. I am told I am like a puppy because if I do not get my daily walk outside I am unbearable to be around.
