New Year's Giveaway & Update! Win Signed Paperbacks & more!

Giveaway up ahead! 
But first ...

I just wanted to thank you all for sticking with me through 2016 and beyond. I love writing and I love having so many readers who I get to share my passion with. Without you, I would've never been able to do what I love most, which is writing. So thank you so much for reading my books! <3

The end of 2016, finally!

So this year has been a real rollercoaster for me. I wrote awesome books and had amazing sales ... but I was also forced to face the fact that I was not able to write as much as I would've liked to, because of my injury that I sustained in January.

See, left side was my leg last year, and right side is my leg now.
That scar is where the surgeon put in a metal plate and 8 screws in my leg (1 of them can't be seen on the scan, because it's much lower in my leg). I'll forever be a cyborg ... until I decide to let them take it out LOL! But I'm not sure I want that, because that would mean another 6+ months of physical therapy. :P

I fractured my Tibial Plateau, which is the top part of my shinbone and knee. It's one of the worst fractures you can have ... lucky me :P But I did recover well. It took about 5 months before I could stand up again on two feet, and about 9 months until I was fully able to walk. All of it was pretty painful and sometimes it still is, but I survived and I got stronger because of it. I learned what true independence and dependency is, because my fiancé was forced to do my bidding for months (I didn't mind, he did, haha!). Also, there is nothing that can beat standing up in a shower. Just saying.

I even wrote a book about my experience too, called RUIN. It's based on my story, but it's not a biography. I mixed fiction with reality to make it more exciting ... because my life is otherwise pretty boring :P haha.

The good stuff; What I did this year

This year I went to 3 signings. Yes, 3! First there was the Boston North Shore Author Signing, then there was RARE in Edinburgh, and finally Claddagh in Dublin. And they were all AMAZING!! I had so much fun meeting all these fabulous people, and the organizers were all so damn professional! Funny thing is, I actually went to Boston in a wheelchair ... because I couldn't walk yet. Crazy, because it was also my first time ever going to America haha. I'm nuts, I know.
Anyway ... I loved each and every one of the signings I went to, and I met so many amazing fans! I couldn't believe all the people that showed up just to take a picture with me & get something signed! :D 
Here are some pictures from the signings.

During my hospital stay I also published 2 audiobooks, Mr. X and Stalker, which are some of my older Dark Romance books, but still must-reads. ;) I'm working on the audiobook for Wicked Bride Games as we speak, and I promise I'll do more audiobooks in 2017. :)

I also published 4 full-length novels. The first being Ultimate Sin, a Dark Romance about a girl who is a complete slave to anyone who is willing to be her master. However, she gets sold to a Master with a devious past ... and a wish that could destroy her. 
I actually wrote this one halfway through December / January, so I'm not sure if it counts, but what the heck. :P I'm so glad I had already finished writing the book when my accident happened (Jan 9th). Funnily enough, this book performed so well! I was ecstatic. :D

Then came VIKTOR, which was a real struggle to write for me, because of the injury (I was stuck on the couch or bed 24/7), and because I just couldn't get into the 'sexy' mode that's required to write sex scenes. :P I think it has something to do with being crippled meaning I no longer felt sexy myself, and could therefor not imagine anyone else to be (let alone a fictional character). But still ... I think I managed to create quite a wonderful piece of work, rich with fantasy & playfulness. <3

My next book was Bad Teacher, which was really fun & easy to write, and I enjoyed it very much. It was just something fun and flirty that I needed to do in order to make myself happy again. It's a book that shouldn't be taken too seriously, as it's just a load of sex & fun. :P It was one of my most successful books.

And then the final full-length book was RUIN, a book based on a true story I'd been saving for 3 years, but now I was finally able to write it. I felt like I needed more experience before I wrote about a girl in the hospital ... and boy, did I get some experience, haha. This was honestly the hardest book for me to write, and I was so glad when I finally pushed through and finished it. It's not one of my best books, but it certainly is one I am most proud of purely because it's so close to heart.

Finally, I wrote something called Happy Forever After Darkness, which is a short novella for fans of Twenty-One, Stalker, Ultimate Sin, and Viktor where I brought all the characters back for an extended epilogue filled with sweet & sexy scenes, as well as a few secrets. ;)

I'm cheating a little bit here, because Ultimate Sin was already finished January 3rd, but I included it on the picture anyway. :P 

I actually DID finish writing Wicked Bride Games back in early December, so it's all set to go live for January 10th! :D This is a book you really don't want to miss. It's about 9 women having to fight over 3 guys who want more than just sex ... I dub this book ... The Bachelor + Gone Girl = Murderporn. :D Make from that what you will, haha!

What's up for 2017?

I've got several ideas / books worked out for 2017, but I can't tell you about all of them, since some of them are either a secret still or I'm not sure I'm going to write it this year or later. However, what I can tell you is that I've already written about 30% in a new story that ties in to Wicked Bride Games, called Dirty Wife Games, a sort of spin-off featuring Hyun, a girl from Wicked Bride Games. It's not going to be Dark Suspense, more like Dark Romance. But you'll find out more later on. ;)

Then I also have a new book planned in April/May with the male lead being a father ... that's about all I'm going to tell you right now.

Finally, I'm going to write 2 sequels to Bad Teacher (if I can manage to write an outline in time), publishing around July and September respectively. These are also going to be fun and flirty contemporary romance / romantic comedies.

This timeline still leaves room for a secret novella/book I was talking about earlier. I can't tell you jack-shit about this, sorry :P But I promise you, if I make it (because this schedule is insane), It'll blow your socks off.

Let me know how your 2016 was!

  1. Big year for me personally, as I worked on getting smaller. More importantly, HEALTHIER. I've gotten physically stronger and controlled, even elimininated, several medical conditions. The journey continues in 2017.
    Family changes ahead as my husband just graduated college (again, at age 40) and embarks on a new career...and my stepson leaves to join the US Marines at the end of January.
    Wishing you a stellar 2017!!

  2. The end of 2016 brought me the harsh realisation that 2017 for me means a hysterectomy. I'm okay with it now. I have a scan in a few weeks and then I'll get a date.
    It's for the best.

  3. My year was great! I can't wait for what the new year has in store, thank you for your amazing words and for taking me to places I never thought imaginable�� Happy New Year! Thank you for the chance to win this incredible gift!

  4. Im glad 16 is over. It ended with the dog having surgery and my car totaled

  5. All in all, my year wasn't too bad and it sure wasn't as jam-packed as yours! I certainly hope I never fracture my tibial plateau!!! A highlight of my year was getting my butt back on a horse after 40+ years of being off of them! I actually went riding again...and I LOVED IT just as much now as I did as a child! For me, it was EPIC! Best wishes to you for a happy, healthy 2017!

  6. Most of 2016 was very depressing for me. I had a lot of female troubles which led to a hysterectomy that I wasn't ready for. It took a while for me to get over it but I'm good now that I see it was absolutely necessary after having a cancer scare. Sorry for this negative post lol but hopefully my 2017 will be much more positive and I wish you the best also!!!

  7. 2016 wasn't a good year for me I'm really hoping 2017 is going to be better, thank you so much for the chance at this amazing giveaway winning this would be a great way to start the new year. Happy New Year everyone💙💖

  8. It's been a year of ups and downs. We had a graduation and a wedding which brought my family all together and that's so awesome because family is everything to me.

For all those who have pain hang in their it could always be worse!!! I could not be able to walk and not feel pain and to me that would be worse!!! Thank you for the chance,I love to read!!!! Happy new year Clarissa!

  10. 2016 was actually a pretty good year for me and my family. We did some traveling. All our health was good. I can't wait to see what this year brings.

  11. I had lots of positive things that our family accomplished.3 graduations, 2 high School and one Medical School,3 in college and 1 doing his residency in Tx. I am so grateful for a healthy year ( the last 2 years have included cancer survivorship and foot surgery). I do understand the joy of standing in the shower-or even taking a shower. To a better 2017 and New Adventures!

  12. 2016 was a tough year. I had a lot of health problems and, though none are life threatening, they are certainly making my life more difficult and affecting my family. I couldn't do any of the things I set up to do due to my health and the economic challenges it has brought upon us. I can only hope 2017 is a better year.

  13. I was able to attend a few book signings I wouldn't have been able to do without the help of friends. The book world has been awesome

  14. I've had a good year. My children, grandchildren and great granddaughter are all doing well. So I can't complain.

  15. 2016 brought some serious health issues my way. Getting admitted to the hospital wasn't fun. Thank God, for the fantastic doctors & nurses who took such great care of me.
    Also many thanks for my family & friends for all your love & prayers.
    By listening to all in the medical field let's hope 2017 will be a healthier new-year.
    Love you all ������❤��xx

  16. The start of the year wasn't great then it got better when my nephew Leo was born, then on November the 11th we had a house fire which caused us to lose 80% of our stuff and meant we had to move in with our uncle until it was renovated which won't be completed until at least the end of February.

  17. 2016 wasn't a good yr for me with health issues at the beginning of the year. Then in June my 3 granddaughters who have lived in Vegas since they were born, 9, 14, and 16 years old moved to Oregon which was heartbreaking for me. Then while on vacation in October in Oregon visiting them, I fell and broke my shoulder in 3 pieces. The ER put a sling on it until we could get back to Las Vegas which took 2 long days. I saw an orthopedic surgeon, he put a plate and 9 screws in my shoulder to put it back together. Now I'm in physical therapy, which is not fun!!! I'm going to be 62 years old in less than 2 weeks, I'm too old for this s#%#. I'm hoping 2017 is better than 2016.

  18. Happy New Year Clarissa, so sorry about your injury. My 2016 was fine, no drama! Looking forward to another great year. Thank you

  20. The beginning of 2016 had been a rough start for me and my family after losing two loved ones just a month apart. On the bright side, I have found comfort in having a supportive family and reading - I have found you and loved your books and those of other authors' that I haven't known of before. Happy New Year! 🎉

  21. 2016 was not a good year for me but I have high hopes 2017 will rock
