About the Author

Stacy is a full-time Police Officer who enjoys crime scene investigation above all else. She is a mother of two and her husband is also in law enforcement. She is very much into photography and carries her Nikon Digital SLR with her almost everywhere, just in case. She also has two Shiloh Shepherd dogs and loves to play catch with them. Stacy uses her experience at work to make the stories more believable. Weaving bits of crime solving knowledge into her stories of fiction to make them more lifelike. Her first book, My Blood Runs Blue was the start of her writing career. It brings the world of law enforcement into the paranormal world of vampires. It is a suspenseful adult series that will keep you guessing from chapter to chapter. Book one, My Blood Runs Blue, was published April 2011 and is currently available in paperback, hardcover and e-book editions. Book two of the series, entitled Blue Blood For Life was released September 2011 and like book 1 made International Best Selling lists on Amazon very quickly. The third book of this series is in the plot and characters development stage. She is hoping to have it completed and published in the winter of 2012. Stacy is also currently working on several different novels. The first one is called Liveon. This book brings to life Detective Jacquelyn Liveon as she tries to protect a movie star who is being threatened. While this book is well on it’s way, it has been put to the side to make way for another book that she is working on. Whether I’ll Live or Die was her third book to be released in July of 2012! This book is a fictional story about a young woman named Amanda who deals with the pain and emotional issues of Domestic Violence. You will read about how Amanda deals with the things life hands her while you follow Nicole Nolan as she grows at her new job as a police officer. This book is very emotional and intense as it deals with the all to real problems that face people in violent relationships. Stacy is also currently working on a Guardian Angel book and is hoping to have that out in 2013. There are several other books in the works for Stacy Eaton, but with her busy life you’ll need to keep checking back to find out what else is new!

"Whether I'll Live or Die" is a riveting read that evokes several emotional responses as you read. The book details the lives of "Amanda" and "Nicole", two women who appear to be very different from the beginning of the book, but who become inextricably tied together by the end in a surprising and poignant twist. From beginning to end, both of their stories are raw and real, one trying to cope with an ongoing cycle of domestic abuse, the other dealing with life as a police officer inevitably drawn into violent crime. If you have an aversion to graphic violence or abuse, this is not the book for you. You will find traces of fairy tale love and romance, but it serves more as intermittent relief from an ongoing theme of brutality throughout the entire novel rather than hold a place as a prominent theme of its own. I repeat - this novel is raw and REAL, not for the squeamish.

Don't get me wrong. The violence is not gratuitous in any way. It is the essence of the experiences of these two women - experiences that will make you angry, sad, afraid, and even resolute in your pursuit of the final pages in order to see how it all ends. I will not give away spoilers, but I can say that there will be vindication by the end of the story. However, how you arrive at the ultimate resolution is a brilliantly crafted journey that engages the reader both emotionally and psychologically. The author teaches us that ultimately, destiny is in our own hands and we decide whether our spirits will live or die in this lifetime.

I have just finished this book and had to immediately write a review praising the authoress. Sadly this story is all to familiar with my life and like the main character, karate also helped pull me out of that nasty pit of abuse and self hatred. The way this story was told was unique and it engages you right from the start. The characters were all so real. I just don't know what to say, I am so choked up. It brought back memories and feelings that I had buried in my mind and thought I had buried forever. All I can say is please read this book! And be there for someone if you can.

I downloaded Whether I'll Live or Die when it was offered in Amazon Kindle's Top 100 Free, and I am glad I did. Stacy Eaton tells a compelling story of two women affected by domestic violence, one a victim and another a police officer, as their lives head toward inevitable intersection. This book is currently an Amazon Prime Kindle Lending selection. Definitely worth reading.

Life changing, compelling and heartbreaking are just a few of the words I would use to describe author Stacy Eaton's novel, Whether I'll Live or Die. The author takes us on a compelling and life changing journey with characters Nicole and Amanda, two women whose lives are at complete opposites and yet inextricably intertwined. Whether I'll Live or Die focuses on the realities of Domestic Abuse, something that is all too prevalent in this day and age. It also takes us through life as a police officer and the violent crimes they face on a daily basis. Nothing about this story is sugar coated.

This book is absolutely riveting, taking you on a kaleidoscope of emotions while you quickly turn pages to reach the climatic ending, an ending that won't disappoint. A highly recommended read.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In this book, Stacy Eaton takes on the ambitious project of telling a double story. I thought the subject matter was well handled, although at times it was easy to become frustrated with Amanda for her lack of self-preservation. After she got her butt handed to her by the first offensive meat-head, one would have almost expected her to wise up. I have taken psychology courses and I do understand the mentality described here. Still, I felt that the author made Amanda seem weaker than she should have. It is not just timid women who lime to be the less dominant one in the relationship that go through abuse. As the author points out in the beginning people of either sex, any race, religion, social standing, etc. can suffer at the hand of an abuser. I wondered as I followed Amanda's journey why she would allow a boyfriend, a "friend" and later a husband to do this to her when she had every opportunity to not repeat the mistakes of the past. I can't see her following the course of needing to stay with an abuser as it didn't seem that her and the first boyfriend had been dating long at all. She was only nineteen, came from a good family who cared for her and didn't fit the profile of a woman who had suffered mistreatment for so long that she didn't know any other way. The secondary story line in this book was from a female officer's perspective and I wasn't able to get into that story as far. I thought the character of Amanda was written much better.

I respect what the author has done here in trying to raise awareness. I thought this book was pretty well executed and it was moving. It is about a serious topic and should be given proper credit for helping others to see what some women go through.

MY REVIEW
I downloaded this book from Amazon with the intention to read and review it on my blog.
The cover shows the main character of Amanda in a vulnerable position on the floor almost cowering away from a rather large shadow of a man with his fists clenched. I think this image fits the book well as it is about Domestic Violence.
The book covers the subject of domestic violence very well and in a thought out, thoughtful way.
I enjoyed reading this book even though the subject is not a pleasant one. The book describes the events in the book in detail and I have to say really realistically (coming from myself who has been through this problem) You see the domestic violence from the side of the victim as well as the side of a police officer dealing with the fall out and after math of the attacks who deal with both the attacker and the victim.
I loved the characters in the book, you cannot help but get attached to them. You feel the frustration Nicole has when returning to Rebecca's house on numerous occasions for the ever increasingly worsening abuse she is suffering at the hands of her husband.
The book has quite a twist at the end, and it also has a quite shock ending. this book had me remembering past troubles and gave me teary eyes and a lump in the throat aand a tightness in my chest on many occasions. Perhaps a sad thing for me to say but it is great that there are books out there like this one publicizing the issue of Domestic Violence. These books also help victims and survivors speak out the issue and make them feel that they are not alone. It is extremely easy to say, "her husband hits her why doesn't she leave?
