DROP IT LIKE IT’S HOT . . .

Posted on September 4th, by C.L. Parker in Uncategorized. 5 comments

Whoa! So it’s been a week since the release of A MILLION DIRTY SECRETS and I feel like I’m the luckiest person in the world. I know that’s a slight exaggeration, but if you’ve been following my Facebook Page, or if you’ve gone out to your local store to pick up a copy of the book, then you know they’re FLYING off the shelves. Like this Target shelf on day #1 of availability. 

^^^EMPTY SHELF THAT HAD TO BE RE-STOCKED^^^

Shut the front door! I think I’m still in shock. And then there was this . . . ALL OVER the place . . .

So I’m feeling like a rock star, right? Because, come on . . . that’s pretty dope! (Do people still say dope?) Not really. I was overwhelmed with emotion. I may have shed a tear or two, but thank goodness, the admin of my street team, Parker’s Pimpin’ Posse, was there. Alicia Justice and her bohunk, Joshua Young, drove all the way to my humble abode to keep me in line on release day. They run Jitterbug PR, so they’re pretty adept at handling this sort of thing. Bless them. They’re the real rock stars.

And speaking of rocking, … Read More »

So I’m a little late on this, but I still had to share. Look at whose mainstream debut made RT Magazine‘s September 2013 issue with the TOP PICK! for Erotic Romance!!!!!

Seriously, when I first saw it via a post to my street team, Parker Pimpin’ Posse, by Chelle Olson, I was like . . .  

*Pay no attention to all themz chinz ;)*

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE . . .

Publisher’s Weekly . . . THE Publisher’s Weekly . . . had this to say about A MILLION DIRTY SECRETS:

“Smoldering sex scenes and a cliffhanger ending will have erotica fans panting for more.”—Publishers Weekly

Y’all really want to read it now, right? Please, oh please, oh please read it!!! And you can even get it a day before everyone else!!! True story.

For those of you who may not be aware, Random House (I still get a little giddy whenever I use their name because they’re MY publishing house, what-what?!) is allowing Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Lexington, KY to do a book launch on 8/26/2013 at 7:00 PM EST, which is actually the day BEFORE the official release. I will be there to say a few words and try to make y’all want m’body . … Read More »


F.U.N. at R.A.G.T.

Posted on June 10th, by C.L. Parker in Uncategorized. 11 comments

As
many of you are probably aware from the many Facebook posts, I attended Lori
Foster’s Reader and Author Get Together (RAGT) in Ohio over the weekend. It was my
first experience at this particular convention, as well as my first experience
of really being able to participate as an author. I have Darynda Jones to thank
for that.

Speaking
of Darynda Jones . . . She was my bunk mate. Bless her. Not entirely sure she
will ever agree to do so again. I’m kidding. She’s an amazing woman, and I’m
very lucky to be able to call her my friend. Just look at how she represented Team
CLP!!! She made me look good, but then again, my T-shirt made her look
pretty damn spectacular in this pic as well. LOL! Right behind her is the bed
where we “slept” with each other. *waggles brows* If those walls could talk . .
. they might have whispered words of condolence to the incomparable Mrs. Jones. *snort*

But
Darynda wasn’t the only one representing Team CLP at the convention. Check out
these gorgeous hotties!!! No, your eyes are not deceiving you. That’s Gayle Donnelly and Robyn Mackenzie (authors of the Blood Feud series) on either side of Darynda Jones, and on the end, is the … Read More »
