Author rambles

To clear things up, I have only published books in The Ancient Guardians series!

image

Thankfully I had a reader bring this to my attention. I am in the process of getting this worked out with Barnes & Noble nook, to ensure that readers are not confused by the company assuming that I am Sage L. Morgan.
For now, all I can do is write this post on all my social media platforms to help readers learn that I am not Sage L. Morgan.
Here are the facts: I have only published three books!
1: Ancient Guardians: The Legacy of the Key.
2. Ancient Guardians: The Uninvited
3. Ancient Guardians: The Awakening
I will be publishing the fourth and final book in this series in early 2016.
The Ancient Guardians series is a clean romance novel series, targeting ages 13 and up.
I don’t read or write any form of erotica novels, sorry it’s not my style or preference.
I hope this clears any misunderstandings up.
My best!
Stacy ‘SL’ Morgan

Awards, Writing

All three books in the Ancient Guardians novel series WIN Gold and Silver awards!

Am I dreaming or did ALL THREE books in the Ancient Guardians series win in the 2015 Reader’s Favorite International awards??? I’m speechless! Congrats to “The Uninvited” for taking GOLD in the Young Adult Romance category, and “The Legacy of the Key” taking silver in this category as well! To “The Awakening” for snatching up the Silver medal in Young Adult Fantasy…both TOUGH categories for the books to compete in and once again, The Guardians have made me proud to be their author!!! Now for the fun part…holding up to my part of the bargain: I’ve said that if all three books win this year, I will definitely go to the Miami award ceremony…. Yeeeee!!!!!
Congratulations to my fellow author friends and all others on their awards!
These awards are dedicated to our readers and fans of the Ancient Guardians series…you all keep me inspired with your love for this series everyday! We love you!!!!

Ancient Guardians: The Uninvited, Writing

Congratulations to “The Uninvited” now an award winning book!

image

I’ll admit that this was an extremely hard book for me to write. A simple example, when I write I am literally in the characters mind. For those of you who have read this book and know what Reece deals with, you may be able to understand why I had to shut the laptop more than once in order to write ‘the scenes’ she was struggling in. If that wasn’t enough, I decided to write this book in Levi’s point of view as well! Wow, what a challenge! It was mentally draining and when our Guardians went to war…I WAS READY FOR IT!!!!!
This all said, I had NO IDEA how readers would receive this book. I sat back in relief when readers enjoyed it, and now? Well…here it is, The Uninvited joins The Legacy of the Key and has won GOLD in the Global eBook awards!!!
Way to go go, Guardians!!!!

Ancient Guardians NEW RELEASES, Book 3

Ancient Guardians NOT a three book series!

image

Amazon has this lovely little feature that has me a bit frustrated even though I try my best to get the word out that the series does not end with book 3, The Awakening!
So it’s time to clear things up.
First of all, yes…my editor encouraged me to take a HUGE risk and end book 3 in such a way that it would stand out differently from the previous books. She believed that in order to make the ending “unpredictable” we cut an entire chapter and push it into book 4. This risk has caused quite a bit of feedback and also left some readers so upset they sort of forgot everything else in the book and rated it low because they were upset about the ending. It’s perfectly fine, but my issue now is readers are believing that the series ends there due to Amazon’s new way of promoting the book. (3 Books in the series…picture above).
Facts: Book 4 is written and in editing and revisions. We have no concrete date for its release, but we do know this: It will be released!
Right now, I may be ending this series at book four, but if something happens in the whimsical world of Pemdas, we may have book 5…we may have book 6! We don’t know yet. 😉 But the most important thing is, The Ancient Guardians novel series is not a trilogy! There is a book in edits and revisions that will pick up where book three ended!
Special note: It was the hardest decision of my writing career to end book 3 like I did. But, I like the books unpredictable and interesting, so I followed my editor’s advice and took the risk!
Now with all of this said, Ancient Guardians is not over. We have much much much more for our readers!
My best to you all,
S.Morgan.

Ancient Guardians: The Legacy of the KEy, Book 4 updates

Book 4 of the Ancient Guardians series and a new update!

You may just have these two expressions with the news about to give.

First of all, I can’t thank all of our wonderful readers for being on this amazing journey with me. It’s been unforgettable and I feel as though we are all one big family (along with our fictional family) ❤
After weeks of consideration while we work on Book 4, I’ve decided that in order to deliver the best book possible, I will be pulling what I had from Book 5 into book 4 to complete The Ancient Guardians Series. I honestly feel this will deliver a better book and the best way to end the series.
Now, not to worry too much. The way the series will end will NOT leave anyone hanging or guessing. (Here comes the second expression from RDJ)
I am actually being pulled in a new direction with the Guardians and that is: to write short stories following Levi and Harrison when they first began guarding Earth and their encounters while doing so. (Think of it as a TV series.)
Right now this is where The Ancient Guardians novel series is at. However if Book 4 is turning out to be 300,000 words because we brought Book 5 into it, we’ll be forced to separate the two. I honestly don’t see this happening. So, I hope this is agreeable with all of our readers and I would honestly love your feedback. I’ll keep everyone posted if we change things up and we decide to keep Book 5 as our final book!
My love to you all!!! ❤❤

A quick thank you to Robert Downey Jr. For having an incredible personality and the ability to display the best facial expressions! :)👍😎 🙂

Detailed review of The Awakening by The Book Whisperers : Pride and Prejudice meets E.T. in a good way!

An AMAZING and beautiful review of Ancient Guardians: The Awakening by The Book Whispers

Take a gander up there at that beautiful book cover. That’s the portal to Pemdas a realm that’s connected and dependent on Earth. I’ve reviewed S.L. Morgan’s Ancient Guardians books before on The Book Whisperers blog and just like last time I was both overwhelmed with feels and impressed with the beauty of her prose.  If you haven’t liked her fb page you are so missing out.

Morgan invites us into her home office on a daily basis and shares with us her struggles and triumphs as a writer. This allows us, the readers, to feel a sort of….read the rest of this incredible review here: The Book Whispers
