Press Kit

Updated 4/14/17

Colorado native Stephanie Connolly-Reisner grew up with a love for reading and writing. She started penning her first stories in grade school and never stopped. Now much older, she’s a prolific writer who lives along the front range of the beautiful Rocky Mountains with her husband and a trio of very pampered house cats.

 Recent Awards/Accolades:

  • Training Amy was in Amazon’s top 100 Kindle Romances for most of March 2011 and in Amazon’s top 10 Erotica titles for several weeks in March as well. This indie published title has also made the bestselling erotica list over on All Romance Ebooks. It has sold over 50,000 copies. Other O’Connell bestsellers include the novellas Weekend Captive and Nice Girls Don’t, both of which have also sold over 50,000 copies each.
  • The Complete Book of Demonolatry made Lulu’s Small Press bestseller list in 2010. It held its ground in the top 30 bestselling spirituality titles of all time on Lulu for several years. This indie title has sold over 8,000 copies, which for the niche and for non-fiction, I’m told is a rather good figure.
  • Many of Stephanie’s demonolatry books have held top-selling spots on Kindle for weeks on end in the categories of magic and satanism. Titles include:  Drawing Down Belial, Lake of Fire, Curses, Hexes & Crossing, The Art of Creative Magick, Honoring Death, Wortcunning for Daemonolatry, and Book of Agares.
  • Her Demon Lover was in the top 100 in paranormal romance on the Kindle and Nook charts for several weeks in May 2013.
  • Ascending Darkness, Lucifer’s Haven, and Temple Apophis were all nominees for the Summer Indie Book Awards 2016.
  • In March 2017, Stephanie was named a finalist for Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Independent Writer of the Year award.

Please note that I chose to do separate pdf press kits on each pseudonym as well as a combined one for your convenience since I generally do appearances as one pen-name (sometimes two) rather than all four. Not all my books are suitable for all audiences, after all.
