I’m overstating: Actually, The Wallace House of Pain — my novelette about troubled family relations, modern social justice issues and deeply personal choices — is being offered as a special promotion this week for only $0.99, starting at 5 PM tonight! Buy it here.
The Wallace House of Pain is about a 45-minute read, and an introduction to the characters in my forthcoming novel, Beautiful and Terrible Things (Black Rose Writing, July 2024).
Here’s what some reviewers and readers have said about the novelette:
“Stevens has done a wonderful and respectful job of bringing across a positive message of acceptance and love that any person who has ever struggled with that would love to read. I’m excited to read any future novels by this author and see what impact she has on the world today!” — Readers’ Favorite
“A must read!….It’s desperately sad that so many live a lie for fear of being made to feel they’re somehow less worthy of love and acceptance. This book sends out a powerful message to all. I think many will be comforted by it.” — Chat About Books

More on The Wallace House of Pain
In The Wallace House of Pain, activist Xander Wallace and his straitlaced father do not have an easy relationship. Jim’s views on race, immigration, gender, sexuality and even millennials alienate his son no matter how hard Xander tries to find common ground.
Toss in Jim’s second marriage ten months after Xander’s mother died and it’s a volatile cocktail.
How, against this backdrop, will Xander dare to bare his soul and reveal his greatest secret?
