Release date: April 25, 2017
Genre: Romantic Comedy, Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

Snowbound. Sounds so romantic, with visions of cuddling before a roaring fire, hot chocolate spiked with brandy, and a secret elopement.

Wait. What?

My fiancé’s father won’t stop trying to turn our pending wedding into a three-ring media circus so he can get free publicity for his family’s Fortune 500 company. My mother has decided she’s done with All Things Wedding and asks her teacup Chihuahua for mother-of-the-bride advice.

They’ve all gone certifiably mad.

Then the stress from the wedding puts my mother in the hospital, I scream at my future father-in-law in front of a camera crew and the video goes viral, and the romantic wedding that started with Andrew’s grand Pride and Prejudice proposal looks less like Jane Austen and more like Dostoyevsky.

So what do you do when you’re a fixer and you can’t fix something?

You give up on it.

Not on Andrew, silly.

The wedding.

Shopping for a CEO’s Wife is the 12th book in Julia Kent’s New York Times bestselling Shopping series. As Shannon and Declan enjoy their newlywed bliss, Andrew’s father wants to exploit Amanda and Andrew’s nuptials, much to Amanda’s chagrin. Can she learn to stand up to her future father-in-law and fight for what’s right? But the real question is: will Spritzy the teacup Chihuahua end up being a flower girl? Continue reading

But when a highly addictive drug promises to end her dependency on those who’d use her as a tool for their own success, she must choose to either remain broken and vulnerable, or return to the above-the-law power and prestige she once had: strong but without will—for whoever holds her next fix will hold her loyalty.

Yet even now as then, a love based on lies of omission might still save her life. Continue reading

Stalker by Clarissa Wild

Clarissa-iconWhat kind of book is Stalker?

Stalker is a Dark Romantic Suspense, filled with hate, lies, lust, sex, and much, much more. 😉 It’s not for the faint-hearted, but I promise you, if you sit through it, it will be worth it!

Where do you get your ideas?

I get my ideas from movies, books, and sometimes even the stories people tell me. I love drawing inspiration from things I’ve seen or witnessed in the past. Sometimes, ideas can also just spring into my mind out of nowhere, it’s like they just appear. It’s amazing. Once I have an idea, it still takes month to take the form of a book, though.

Usually it begins with a ‘what if’ question, a few characters, bits and pieces of action or things that happen … and the before I know it, there’s a complete story on my desk!

What’s the hardest part of the writing process?

The hardest part would be the creation of the storyline. The idea always begins with flashes, little scenes, but for a book I have to string those scenes together to form a coherent story. Sometimes, I have to shift around the scenes, or change course in the middle, but in the end it always turns out to be perfect! 🙂

What do you always need to have with you when you write?

I always need to have my bottle of water with me when I write, as well as some peace & quite, and some good music. 😉 I also love to have a cup of hot tea next to me, but it’s not a requirement to write an awesome book!

If your book was going to be made into a movie, who play the lead roles?

For Stalker, I would say Michael Malarkey as Phoenix (With some added piercings and tattoos), and Candice Accola as Vanessa. As actors, those two match the best, but I didn’t style my characters after actors. My real role models are Stephen James & Mikkel Jensen for Phoenix, and Marina, from Marina And The Diamonds (the singer) for Vanessa.

What books can we expect from you in the future?

My next book will most likely be Twenty-One (21), and it has someone from Stalker in the leading role. I won’t tell you who, but you can find out pretty easily when you read the book 😉 It’s going to be super exciting, you can check it out here:

Any final words for fans?

Thank you so much for reading my books, and make sure to pick up your copy of Stalker to get the complete story of Vanessa & Phoenix! It’s going to be one heck of a ride! 🙂 http://bit.ly/stalkeramazon

Conversing with Sandra Brown

I have been running this blog for the last two years and I have had many wonderful authors come and chat with me. Today I am truly humbled to welcome Sandra Brown, author of over 60, you read it right 60 New York Times Bestsellers! I have been a fan of Ms Brown for as long as I could remember, so naturally I jumped at the chance to be a part of her blog tour.

Here’s my interview:

Photo Sandra BrownWhat made you switch from writing thrillers to writing a heartwarming story like Rainwater?

The characters of Ella and Rainwater wouldn’t leave me alone!  They kept coming around every few months, insisting that I tell their story.  In between contract books, I began writing, and before I knew it, I had a first draft.  I put it away, wrote another thriller, took it up again.  I worked on it that way for about a year and half before I sent it to my agent, who had no idea I’d been writing it.  She liked it and sent it to my editor.  I’m pleased it was received so well.  Their story deserved to be told.

When you started writing did you ever think you would make a full time living off of it?

That’s a yes and no question.  From day one, yes, I wrote with the intention of being published.  I knew that if I approached it as a hobby, something to dabble in, I’d never make it.  So I treated the writing like a job, “going to work” every day, although it was only a commute to the spare bedroom where I’d set up a typewriter on a card table!  Did I think I’d ever write over 75 books, be a bestseller, be published worldwide?  No.  But I’m so grateful to have been afforded the opportunity to do what I love doing and making a living at it.

The publishing industry has changed a lot since you started your career. What are your thoughts on the changes and how have they affected you?

I think we in the industry are still on the learning curve of the changes and how they affect us!  Publishing is evolving.  What I love about the introduction of electronic books is that it has enabled me to grow my audience. Readers on every spot of the globe have access to my books.  The disadvantage to it is that readers on every spot of the globe also have access to me! Constantly feeding social media requires a lot of time. It’s a juggling act to allocate time to it, without sacrificing time that should be spent writing.  Writing a good book is the best thing I can do for my reader.

What was your biggest challenge when you first started writing?

Not so much the writing itself (because I had dozens of stories basically outlined in my head and couldn’t wait to put them on paper) but combining my new “habit” with daily life.  Fortunately, I had a good husband, who knew how badly I wanted to write, and was willing to help with kids and all the craziness that family life entails. We ate carryout a LOT!

What is your biggest challenge now?

What it’s always been: Writing a story that people want to read. I still approach each day with a healthy dose of FEAR. Is this character compelling?  Will this plot excite and engage the reader?  This self-doubt is actually beneficial. Complacency would be deadly. Continue reading
