S.C. Stephens News!! Upcoming Book Releases and More!

in S.C. Stephens

Remember how crazy we all were over Thoughtless and Effortless? Remember how we so patiently waited for them to become available, in full e-book format on Amazon and Barnes and Noble? And then we discovered that S.C. Stephens had a whole slew of other books (that many have loved, too!!).

Yanira: I did get everything she had on Feedbooks when I read Thoughtless. I just love her character development. I also love the Conversion series.

Rebecca: Yeah, what Yani said :) I love all her books…I think the character development has a lot to do with it. It’s All Relative was my first read.

Michele: I LOVE It’s All relative!! I have the Conversion series but I am just getting Collision Course, can’t wait! :)

Jenny: I did tell you to have tissues on hand. Gitte, knowing how you get emotional like me…. Better get a back up box. Sawyer and Lucas are two of the most beautiful characters you will meet. You will love it x

I receive occasional emails and inquiries asking where those other book were available, and asking if the author was planning on releasing anything further in the Thoughtless series.

“I found Thoughtless and Effortless on Kindle books. I would like to find her other books mentioned on the FB page today. Where do I find them? THANKS!!!!!”

“I see mention of S.C. Stephens books but dont see a series reading order. Is there an order?”

Well, here’s the scoop!! Lots of great news and lots to look forward to (here’s a note, directly from the author):

 ”… here’s my wish list for publication dates:

I finally got an ISBN for Effortless, so it should be available on Barnes & Noble, Sony, Apple, etc, any day now!

Collision Course is 80% done. My goal is to have it in print mid-April, with the ebook available a couple of weeks after that.

I’ll start on Conversion after Collision Course is done. I’m hoping to have it ready this summer. Then Conversion 2 in the fall, and Conversion 3 this winter. Early next year I’ll release Conversion: Next Generation.

After that, I’ll hopefully have something new to release! Maybe the third Thoughtless book if all goes well!

And, yes, I will eventually put It’s All Relative into print, and maybe Not a Chance, if there is enough demand for it, but they probably won’t be available until late 2013. I apologize for the delay, but it’s quite a process to get a book ready for publication!

And just so your readers know, for a limited time, I’ll be releasing Conversion: Next Generation for free on Feedbooks. I’ll announce it on my FaceBook page when it’s ready (probably in a month or two). All I ask for the freebie is that I get some feedback, so I know what, if anything, I need to tweak before the book goes into final publication.

Thank you very much for all of the support! I really appreciate it!!



So there you have it!! All of her releases are in “publishing” mode and will be released soon, and we have TWO new books to look forward to! OMG. Wait. Did she just say a THIRD Thoughtless?? Yep! And she’s been leaking some nice little teasers from it, too… (on her Facebook page). Wanna read a couple?

“S.C. Stephens: I really love writing for Kellan…he cracks me up sometimes. Is it too early to tease? Yeah, probably. Oh well, I’m going to anyway…”

“Kiera…can I come in?”


The door didn’t open right away and I frowned at the closed wood. After another pause, Kellan asked, “You‘re not gonna…throw anything at me, are you?”

Haha!!! Already the drama! Love it! And then there’s this little teaser, that had me wayyyyyy too happy, because I know we’ll be in for another emotional roller-coaster!

“S.C. Stephens: Ah, because you guys asked…another brief teaser:

Kellan’s fingers paused on his track pants. Roused from my melancholy thoughts, I glanced up at his face; he was frowning. “Am I making a mistake?” he whispered, over the sound of the shower.

With no frame of reference, I wasn’t sure what he meant by that. Seeing my lost expression, Kellan clarified. “Making an album, going on tour…am I making a mistake?”

The room filled with steam as I hopped off of the counter. Kellan grabbed my hand when I stepped in front of him. “All I want is a quiet life with you. What I just signed up for…isn’t exactly a quiet life.”

Wondering how to comfort him, when I often thought the same thing, I reached up and ran my thumb over his cheek. “Kellan, your life will never be quiet, no matter what you do.” He chuckled at my reference, the confusion on his face lifting. I placed my hand on his chest and looked him square in the eye. “You belong on a stage. It’s what you were born to do.”

I have a feeling this will be another squee-worthy book!!

I never heard about this convertion and Collision Course series. Are they good? They must be..
Oh my! THIRD Thoughtless??!?!! More Kellan? that is amazing!!!!! Great story.

tania March 27, 2012 at 5:35 PM

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeekmkkkkkkk cannot wait for the 3rd book.

Mak March 27, 2012 at 9:16 PM

My heart just sang!

Victoria March 28, 2012 at 12:47 AM

@ Carla, you HAVE to read her Conversion series. I guarantee Teren Adams (the main guy character) is as drool worthy as Kellen Kyle. Maybe not to the same level, I don’t know since we all have our own opinions, but he’s pretty high up there.

Maryse March 28, 2012 at 1:09 PM

Victoria!!! Are you serious??? OMG I have those books from way back when they were available and now I MUST read!!

Mak – it’s great when the heart sings, isn’t it?

Tania – *squeeeeeeeee*

Carla – I wholeheartedly agree!!

Jennifer March 29, 2012 at 2:11 AM

Thanks Mary, you made my week with this post. Can’t wait and need more Kellan!! Here is one of my fav’s from last year “Who’s Afraid of Mr Wolfe?” by Hazel Osmond. Just loved the alpha male in this one!!

Rebeka March 31, 2012 at 8:06 PM

I have the hugest grin on my face from those teasers ! UGH. I can’t wait ! Too excited

Maryse April 2, 2012 at 1:10 PM

I know Rebeka!! He’s a BIG rock star now, I have a feeling. This is gonna be a serious tour. Eeeeeeeeek!!!

Happy April 12, 2012 at 4:57 PM

If you haven’t read the Conversion series and like SC Stephens, it’s a must read. Maryse, I think you’d really like the series ;) And I agree Teren is very drool worthy! The books are still available on FictionPress for free. Not sure how much longer they are going to be up, but thought for those of you interested and don’t want to wait it’s worth checking out!

Maryse April 12, 2012 at 6:48 PM

Thank you happy! You’ve just made me very happy as I already have these books in my Kindle. YAY ME!!!

Brandi Patterson June 18, 2012 at 7:25 PM

OMG Thank you for making my night! Can’t wait for more of Kellan*sigh*

Christina June 23, 2012 at 8:52 PM

So I’m new to this blog site & totally love it already! I loved the thoughtless series & along with everyone else am awaiting the 3rd book! I was thinking to try the conversion series to tide me over, but I can’t find it anywhere. Can someone please HELP! I want to read it on my kindle so any help on how to get it there is appreciated! I didn’t even realize SC Stephens had so many other books out!

Amy July 4, 2012 at 10:19 PM

I can’t wait to hear more about Kellan! I read both Thoughtless and Effortless in a week! I need more!!

Zasshy July 9, 2012 at 10:02 AM

Maryse July 9, 2012 at 10:21 AM

Oh awesome, I still have the Conversion series to read!! Glad to know you love it!

Stacey July 21, 2012 at 5:24 PM

So where can I get Not A Chance & It’s All Realative. I tried to get them downloaded to my kindle but it isn’t working. I am loving SC Stephens books and writing style. Any ideas? Any help is appreciated!

Lisa July 23, 2012 at 7:12 PM

Love your blog! I just finished Effortless two seconds ago. Man, am I in love with Kellan Kyle. He’s like a rougher Edward Cullen in Twilight in my mind. Moody and wild hair and all!

Lisa August 8, 2012 at 4:13 PM

I Loved Effortless and Thoughtless sooooo much! Does anyone know when the third book is coming out? I was told there is one called Reckless-I haven’t seen it anywhere.

Monica V September 20, 2012 at 3:38 PM

Where can I get the Conversion Series? I can not find it anywhere. I would relly like to read it.

tanya October 13, 2012 at 10:57 AM

where can you get the coversion series? I have been looking for it. Is it on Nook? I can find it at Barnes and Noble

Nicole G October 27, 2012 at 11:18 PM

Im so confused by the conversion series and it’s availability. I have downloaded all three books which are apparently samples??? I read the entire conversion sample, several chapters and am completely immersed in story and now I’m left to wait till 2013? I have thorough samples of the next two books that I’m tempted to read but I would be missing so much story from the first book. Can anyone explain to me why this is so? Im confused by the whole process!

Maryse October 28, 2012 at 11:23 AM

Hi Nicole!

The author is having them prepared for eventual sale (editing, etc…) so these are no longer available until they are ready.

I hope this helps!

Happy October 29, 2012 at 1:11 AM

Hello ladies! Here is what SC posted about her books and when they may be available! So be on the look out..

What I’m working on…
by S.C. Stephens on Monday, April 2, 2012 at 10:49pm ·

Not a Chance 2: Second Chance (Tenative title)
I’ll wrap this story up with one more book at some point. Just need to do a little research first…and I rarely seem to have time for that! Lol.
Conversion 1 – 3 – TO BE PUBLISHED IN 2013
The Conversion series is my next publishing project. I will be releasing the entire trilogy in 2013. :)
