Show & Tell Saturday with Clarissa Yip ~ Run!!

* gasp * I’m on spotlight! Quick, hide me!

Alright, I’ll behave. It’s Show and Tell Saturday, here at Decadent’s new and lovely blog (Beautiful job, Ms Blog Maven). And boy, do I have a lot to show you! * wink*

I admit, I’ve come a long way as an aspiring writer from one who consistently cranked out words of…(hmmm...lets not go there) to an author who can put a sentence together with the proper noun, verb and punctuation. But when the efforts finally tie in together and a publisher and editor finally sees your talent, your voice, and what you could bring into the market, it’s amazing at how fast this process could be. So never fear, keep faith and keep writing!

My first story, Love By Auction, was accepted in August and this story has truly been a piece of work, but I had a fabulous editor who kicked me around enough to make it shine and be the best that it could be. Don’t believe me? Read my reviews. It also made All Romance ebooks. (Someone pinch me silly.) It’s still one of the highest rated and best selling books. Here’s the LINK. Check it out!

* Giggle * Someone said I could brag on here, right?

My second book with Decadent that came out in September, Unforeseen Reunion, is another of my faves. Wanna see my favorite review? Well, I’ll show you anyways…

Hunter from Happily Ever After Reviews said:

I adored this tale of two flawed people finding themselves in each others arms. It’s beautifully written—the prose flies off the page like something crafted with perfection in mind.

I’m so impressed with Clarissa Yip and after reading this I will buy anything with her name on it. You should too.

When I see something like this, I know I’m doing something right. And it keeps me going. It keeps my inspiration and motivation flowing to write the next perfect story to share. And I love my readers and of course, my publisher is the best! (Thank you, Decadent Publishing. You’re FABULOUS.)

Want another surprise? In December, I will have another release out with DP, an anthology I’ve collaborated with my amazing critique partners from Passionate Critters. A Passionate Christmas Anthology will certainly knock your….knickers? Socks off? From on-probation angels, assassin witches, paranormal investigators, and even the normal city girl on the run. (If you haven’t noticed, I’m the only non-paranormal that seems to hang with this crowd. Weird.)

Well, I guess, you’ll just have to see for yourself. But I’ll show you my new cover for Snowy Encounters! It’s gorgeous! And thank you once again, Dara England and Decadent Publishing, and yes, most importantly, my darling editor.

Great things can happen when you persevere, so never give up!

Oops, my fingers out ran my thoughts again. : ) Should have read 'Thank you for ending with a pep talk'. Hey, it's early Saturday morning.
