Cowboy- Staci Stallings

Staci Stallings'  Cowboy

Bio:  A stay-at-home mom with a husband, three kids and a writing addiction on the side, Staci Stallings has numerous titles for readers to choose from.  Not content to stay in one genre and write it to death, Staci’s stories run the gamut from young adult to adult, from motivational and inspirational to full-out Christian and back again.  Every title is a new adventure!  That’s what keeps Staci writing and you reading. 

Product description:  "Cowboy  is a grace-filled story about the power of giving everything to God and how a simple act of compassion can change lives forever." Life has done its best to knock Beth McCasland to the ground, and the truth is: it’s done a pretty good job of keeping her there. Stuck in a minimum-wage job with a young daughter counting on her, Beth does her best to stay standing under the weight of it all because she knows God is on her side. Then one night she gets the chance to be an angel to another of life’s weary travelers. For once hope has never looked so real.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
Hope is so sparse in so many lives today.  Cowboy shows how a simple act of kindness can transform lives across the spectrum--for the one receiving the kindness and the one giving it.  I've heard from numerous people that this book made them want to open their hearts and do something to help someone else out--not to get anything back but because love is the only thing that in the end makes any sense in this crazy, mixed up world we live in.

Q: Why did you go indie?
Because my first book got edited to death and I could see that every agent, editor, and industry person wanted me to first fit my stories into their box before they would look at them.  I write the stories God gives me to write the way He gives me to write them.  I'm not interested in trying to make that fit into someone else's formula.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
I love Debra Ullrick's work.  Beyond that, I mostly read Christian non-fiction, so Joanna Weaver, John Ortberg, Joe Beam, Steve McVey, and Brennan Manning.
