Hi Ink Drinkers,

My pen name used to be Sapphirefly and now I write as Stephanie Van Orman. FictionPress gets really mad whenever I try to insert a link, so you'll have to find me elsewhere.

I have my books for sale at bargain prices on Amazon, Apple Books, Barnes and Noble, DriveThru Fiction, KOBO, Smashwords, and Scribed.

I also have my books available on free websites like Inkitt, Quotev, Royal Road, and OBOOKO (but only the ones I let people read for free. Don't pirate my books).

If you can't find me on one of these sites, try typing 'Kiss of Tragedy' in the engine on those sites. Sometimes people have more success finding a specific book and once you find that, you can find the rest of my books easily.

Fictionpress won't let me have links on my profile to things like my website... which is INSANE. The only website it let me have a link to without causing a fuss was YouTube, so here is the link to my YouTube channel: My YouTube Channel I make trailers for my books and so it is quite lovely there. Go visit. You'll have fun.

Sweet, right?

If you want to find me, simply google the name Stephanie Van Orman. You'll get some results.

Today, I'm correcting my profile. The free novels will stay, but from now on, I will only post a sample of anything new because there are no readers here. If there were more readers here, I'd post more free novels here, but no readers means ONLY SAMPLES.

Information about my covers: Because the thumbnails for stories are so small, I've resorted to using smaller versions of my covers. They're still mine... just much smaller.

Thank you for reading!

In the midst of a nuclear war that threatens to wipe out the planet, a young girl and a young soldier try to find answers to save themselves. 1st person POV. Warning, kind of depressing.

Kiss of Tragedy reviews
When he kissed her, she saw a vision... something distant from her reality. It was real, just beyond her grasp. If only she could piece together what it all meant before tragedy struck. If only she could drag her gaze from the fangs his lips kept secret to his eyes, which might tell her everything. Bone-chilling. Wildly romantic.
