Our own Cella Nox, better known as Stacy Lynn Miller, is making a big splash in the LesFic world. Bella Books has picked up all five of the novel-length TiBette fan fiction stories she posted on LesFan between 2016 and 2019.
Stacy first adapted her well-read Out of the Flames and From the Ashes stories into her lesbian fiction Manhattan Sloane Thriller Series. Set against the backdrop of present-day San Francisco’s drug world, these books follow police detective Manhattan Sloane (Bette Porter in the fan fiction version) who believes law and justice don’t always mean the same thing. Each novel hit as Amazon’s number one LGBT Thriller bestseller in 2020 and as audiobooks in 2021. The talented Lori Prince lent her voice to these terrifically popular novels, including the third installment, Beyond the Smoke, which releases in paperback and ebook on July 15, 2021. The audiobook version will follow in late November.
During the Covid shutdown, Stacy re-envisioned and rewrote the widely popular Delayed Trilogy from LesFan and created the Falling Castle Series. Set in New York City and Northern California, this series features two American families separated by coasts and class but are drawn together by lust and love. The three stories follow the secrets plaguing two would-be lovers, Alexandra Castle (Bette) and Tyler Falling (Tina), as they navigate painful pasts, blackmail, embezzlement, plots of revenge, and murder. Despite Chaos will launch the new romantic mystery series in January 2022 in paperback, ebook, and audiobook. Blind Suspicion will follow in July 2022, and the third book in the series, Amid Secrets, is slated for a January 2023 release.
Stacy is currently working on a historical romance trilogy set in Prohibition-era Half Moon Bay, California, that will feature two sapphic women who get swept up in the underground speakeasy world. She hopes Bella Books will pick up all three for publication, starting with a late 2023 release.
We couldn’t be prouder of Stacy, in part because she hasn’t forgotten her roots. In an article at Bella Media Channel, she attributes the many talented writers at LesFan.com for sparking the writing bug in her. We wish her continued success and many more years of writing.
