As each one of her friends has found love, she’s been excited but secretly envious. As much as she wants to find a man, she knows that the odds are stacked against her, not with the medical issue she has kept hidden from everyone.
Aaron Findley was born in Celebration but left when he was a boy. A few months back, he returned after his mother passed away, and even the race cars he drives couldn’t get him out of town fast enough. His sister, Alesandra might enjoy the little po-dunk town, but he prefers bright lights and beautiful women hanging off of his arms after he finishes a race.
Six weeks before Thanksgiving, Aaron crashes his racecar and lands in the hospital in serious condition. When he is discharged three weeks later, he finds that he has fewer friends than he originally thought, and a career that went up in flames like his car.

Velevet & Vows
The Celebration Series Book 13 (Finale- Christmas)

The epic finale of the Celebration Series is finally here. Celebrate Christmas once again with the couple that started it all: Casey Lowe and Thad Wagner.
Velvet & Vows starts out twenty days before the wedding and there is a lot to be done. With wedding showers, bachelor and bachelorette parties, the final dress fittings, holiday preparations and the last of the details for the ceremony and reception, Celebration is crackling with energy–but it’s not all good.
With a few misunderstandings, many secrets and a serial arsonist running rampant in the town, the days leading up to the wedding are far more stressful than Casey and Thad ever planned for it to be. It will take the entire town to tell this story as we pass from one leading character to another.
Prepare yourself for this one-of-a-kind novel that will bring insight into every character you’ve fallen in love with during the series, and even a few characters you’ve never heard from firsthand.

NOTE: While Velvet & Vows can be a standalone novel, there have been twelve other books in this series before it. This book incorporates all twelve of those couples into one story and might be slightly hard to follow if you have not read the other books.

Stacy Eaton – Guest Posts: The Celebration Series Tour

What are you passionate about these days?

My family. My friends. Writing stories that others enjoy. I’m also an advocate of Domestic Violence awareness as I’m a survivor, and I love to meet new people!

Do you have a favorite movie?

My favorite all time movie is Patch Adams. It was instrumental in me becoming a police officer in the last 90’s. It was after I watched that movie that I wanted to have a passion for something that I did. I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives, and shortly after I saw that movie, I joined the police academy. That movie has stayed forefront in mind for many years.

Do you have any “side stories” about the characters in the Celebration series?

Actually, I do. A few of the characters have minor parts in two other series. The Pleasure your Fantasies series has a cameo of Sophia Thayer from Raffles to Rattles. And the Heart of the family series has several cameos from other characters in The Celebration Series, especially the last book, Carnations and Hot Toddy Kisses. That book actually takes place back in Celebration Township where this entire series is located.

How did you come up with the concept and characters for the series?

Several years ago, I wrote Tangled in Tinsel for a Christmas boxset. After I wrote that, several of my readers told me that it would made a great series. At first, I was like, no, but then I started thinking about it and decided to make it a holiday celebration series. Each book, and there are 13, would revolve around a US holiday. We started with Christmas, then moved on to New Years, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Father’s Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving and then the following Christmas. One year in the life of this small town.

What is your favorite part of this series and why?

My favorite part of the series was the final book, Velvet and Vows. It had been one year in the life of this town, and this final book was a unique creation. During this book, you get to see and hear from all twelve couples, plus several children, that were the main stars of the books. The book centers around the first couple’s wedding and an arsonist that is running around the town. It was an incredible undertaking to make sure each character had a chapter and they all flowed into the next. It came out wonderful and is one of my favorite books!

Convince us why you feel your book is a must read.

Set in a small town, it’s more than just romance. It’s about family values, friends and overcoming odds. It’s about new starts and finding yourself while celebrating life. So many of my readers have told me that they wish they could live in Celebration Township and hated to see the series finish.

Do the characters all come to you at the same time or do some of them come to you as you write?

Normally, I figure out my main characters pretty fast. In this series, I needed to come up with twelve characters and a host of minor characters. I had a very in-dept spreadsheet that tracked them all. From names to characteristics to special traits. It was pretty incredible to see it at the end and how many people I had created for this series.

What is your writing process? For instance, do you do an outline first? Do you do the chapters first?

The only series that I have ever outlined is the Twisted Love Series, and that is only because I am co-writing it with another author. We outline a couple chapters at a time and then proceed so we stay on track.

I’m a true punster. I have an idea for a book, sit down to start it and begin to flesh out the character. By the fifth or sixth chapter the characters have pretty much taken over the story and I am only the outlet for their words and actions.

There are many times that I will even write the final scene of the book. This helps me to go from point A to point B.

Have you written any other books that are not published?

I have several that I am currently working on:

Carnations and Hot Toddy Kisses is part of my Heart of the Family series. The fourth and final book for that series is coming out soon.

I’m am also still working on the Twisted Love Series with co-author Amy Manemann. The fifth book, Love Carved is slated to come out hopefully in December. There are nine books total in this series

The Pleasure Your Fantasies Series has a new book, Secret Fantasies that releases very soon, and will have at least four more books in the series.

The final book of the My Blood Runs Blue Series, Blue Bloods Final Destiny will release in 2020.

Plus, I have a brand new series that I will be working on intently called Rise Again Warrior series which will focus on military personnel coming back to civilian life and all that they have to do to try and deal with normal life after all they have seen and done.
