AN AUTHOR’S NOTE REGARDING A WAR AMONGST THE STARS AND ITS DARK THEME

AUTHOR NOTE

Not often does a tale get told from the villain’s perspective, nor are we blessed enough to hear of the origin story in which set them on the path to true darkness, but here… we do.

Who is the genuine villain of this story you may ask? Well, I will leave that up to you to decide, for “we are all villains in someone else’s eyes,” and if you think not, then I dare you to “look into a mirror, and ask yourself… Who have you wronged?

Things are not always as they seem. People are not always as they seem.

We all hide a darkness inside, and how we choose to cope with our trauma,

how we choose to heal, to express it, to explode…

Well, isn’t that the premise of this story?

“You can go into war blind, and risk being slaughtered, or you can go in observant, and do the slaughtering.”

“To be distracted, is to be blind.”

So, I advise you. Be careful who you trust. Be careful what you wish for, for the wrong star could be listening.

Magic always comes at a cost. A cost that in the end, is never worth the fulfillment.”

Now, a warning to the impressionable.

Take heed, as the advice you may hear throughout this narrative, might just be the villain’s way of secretly manipulating you towards the villain you may unknowingly become.

After all, this is… a war amongst the stars, and with that comes bloodshed, betrayal, immoral ideologies, toxicity, sizzling, primal lust, hidden secrets, pain. Lots of pain. But do not fear. No matter what,

love will always prevail. “However, necessary.”

May your path towards the light or dark be blessed by the stars themselves.

Happy wishing.

I’ll see you on the other side.

Good luck.

THE BOOK COVER REVEAL AND BOOK BLURB IS HERE!!!

Without further ado. I present to you…

A WAR AMONGST THE STARS

A Star-Crossed Lovers Series: Book One

A Dark Sci-Fi Fantasy Romance Novel

Dark, seductive, and with mysterious secrets lurking around every corner, begins book one in Tristin Clark’s dark epic sci-fi fantasy series.
Stolen and imprisoned aboard an alien ship, Serena, a human woman with a hidden power, finds herself moments away from death, but as fate would have it, another discovers and claims her life, and soon, her heart too.
The voyage back to Mel’Vargon will be a long one, but until they arrive, Zurhen, the new Emperor and lonely king, takes it upon himself to care for his little one, vowing to do whatever he can, to nurture her back to health and see to all… of her aching needs.
As they soar across the stars, and Serena adapts to her surroundings, an undeniable, cosmic power between them works at drawing them close. With tensions arising aboard ship, and an already fragile and magic-less world on the verge of an uprise, a dark, mysterious presence lurks amongst the shadows, following and clinging to Serena and her inner power, threatening to draw her into his familiar, yet deadly orbit.
A war is brewing. One that in the end, will force all, to choose a side.

Me, My Life, and a Progress Update with AWATS

I honestly don’t know where to begin. I’ve been non-stop, working night and day, going on three years straight. My mind is so scattered brained. So, much so, I honestly thought we were still in January. I feel like I’m going mad and possibly losing touch with reality. I mean, my mind is always inside my fictional worlds, sooo? It’s cool though. Aren’t all creatives a little… um eccentric? Yeah, let’s go with that. HAHA! Help? 😥

Okay now on the the good stuff.

First off, I just want to thank all of you who are always there to keep me from losing my shit and becoming the villain I always aspired to be, (some little girls wanted to be princesses, I wanted to be the wicked villainess) Oh, and a special thanks to those who encourage me to keep going and remind me that me and my writing matters. I LOVE YOU! THANK YOU!

Some days are bad and I feel like giving up and saying FUCK THE WORLD, but thankfully, it hasn’t gotten to that point. Close, but not yet. Nope. I have never been more determined to make my dream of becoming a successful author come true than I am during this very moment, as I am pounding away at these keys. I’m going to make it. You bet your cute ass I will, you mark my words. I feel it. I feel deeeeep within my bones. Magic exists and I am willing it to happen. Bet!

Any who. We all know I suck at keeping up to date with social media, but hey, I’m a busy author creating worlds, not to mention i’m taking on the roles of like a publishing team of a 100. Yeah, it’s no wonder why I’m losing my mind. Seriously though, help? Please be patient with me. I’m trying my best. 😥

As for A WAR AMONGST THE STARS and its progress. Here’s the low down. You ready?

The book cover is completed and might I say, bad freaking ass. Picture the dark academia vibe. It’s a discreet cover with an object based design. Dark, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Royal, the design nails it all and I am SO in love with how it turned out. Now when will the cover reveal be? This February. Date? TBA.

Update on the writing. Previously, I had written AWATS and that first draft was garbage, so I re-wrote the story which I believe it SOOO much better but I’m not done with it yet. Close but not yet. This baby is HUGE! It’s an epic novel so of course it is but for real though. I could split it into two books, but… naw. I prefer them thick, so that’s why it’s taking so long, because you’re getting like two books for the price of one. You’re welcome. I’m still aiming for a late Spring release and I am pretty confident that I’ll be able to make it happen, so stay tuned for that official announcement!

The AWATS ebook is available to pre-order on Amazon and will be in KU, so if that’s how you prefer to read, then go pre-order it right now! After it’s published, the price will raise. The story will also be made available in paperback and hardcover but you won’t be able to get those copies until publishing day.

Let’s see… What else?

OHHH! I created three lists, a Trigger Warning List, a Book Trope List, and an Important Information Book List. It’s on my website. Just go the the AWATS page and scroll to the bottom.

Another thing. I haven’t “officially,” announced it yet, but my Spicy Bookish Shop is now live! Go check out some of my featured items on my website under the SHOP tab. There’s also a special coupon there just for my readers 😉

I feel like I’m missing out on so much and I probably am, but I just can’t think right now. I’m tired. Check back though, as I’m sure I’ll remember what to add later.

Take care, my pretty stars!

Your dark queen,

Tristin

A Little Author Re-Introduction…

I thought it was time for a re-introduction. Hi. I’m Tristin Clark and this is my story.

Small town girl born in Texas. A dreamer with her heart and mind set on escaping not just her reality, but into my own imaginative mind. After drowning in an endless loop of the societal bubble we call life, I needed more so I quit my full time job and set off to travel the world. It was through traveling where I had found meaning, where I found me, and for the first time, I finally knew exactly what I was put on this earth to do.I’ve always considered myself a writer.

When I was a child, I would write plays, acting and directing them in hopes of one day pursuing a career out of them all. Flash forward into my senior year in high school, it was writing that I began to pursue and the genre of romance that called to me.

A few years later, I had a nightmare that had shaken me to the core. It was of the apocalypse. Brutal, devastating and gruesome, I awoke, screaming, sweaty and confused, because to me, it felt too real. To me… it felt as if I were there. And so as the nightmares continued, I did what I do best. I escaped into my mind and began writing, combining my darkest of nightmares with a romantic element. You see, there’s something I took away from my end of the world nightmares, and that’s how tragic it would be to die without ever knowing love. And thus I ventured into Dark Romance.

When it comes to my stories, expect EVERY trigger warning. Expect vulgar language, explicit sex scenes, morally grey and evil fucking villains that will win. As I enjoy leaving the element of surprise, you will stumble across demons, aliens, humans, angels, devils, Gods and many other creatures within my stories. Some even in the same book. This is the apocalypse. Love will not come easy. My soulmates will struggle immensely to find, claim and protect the ones they love, before the end of time.

Every single one of my books will be connected. All taking place before, during and after the apocalypse, but I will leave the hunt up to you to find, so pay attention when you read and follow the clues as they just might lead you to the greatest escape and happiest of everlasting endings.


That’s it for now!

Take care and until next time!

Tristin

I’VE BEEN BUSY! BUT I’VE GOT NEWS!!!

Hello, my sexy sinners! I know I’ve been absent for a while and the truth is, one: I suck at keeping up with social media and have like zero time for it, and two: I have been busting ass with producing a ton of work instead.

If ya haven’t heard yet, I’ve now got multiple work in progresses going on right now, all in which are nearing their end and beginning to be re-vised and edited for publishing.

WIP’s include:

-THE MONSTER INSIDE OF ME – A Dark Paranormal Romance Novel

-A COLD WINTER NIGHT – A Dark Romance Novel

-THE FORBIDDEN STEPS WE TAKE – A Dark Forbidden Romance Novel

-A WAR AMONGST THE STARS – A Dark Sci-Fi Fantasy Romance Novel

(Note: I have removed “Erotic,” due to Amazon being on a war path to ban all erotic books.)

Update on TMIOM: THE MONSTER INSIDE OF ME, is still happening but not yet ready to go. Since this series is a seven book series, I have been trying to write the whole series out so that I may be release each book one after another without delay or interrruption. This series is coming but be patient with me, this series is MASSIVE! So, until I get this big boy done, I have decided to publish another one of my steamy stories before it.I hope you all are ready to travel to space, because baby… We’re about to soar across the stars! Now, allow me to introduce to you,

A STAR-CROSSED LOVERS SERIES: BOOK ONE

A DARK SCI-FI FANTASY ROMANCE NOVEL

TEASER:

“I want to help you, little one but I do not know how. Please, give me a sign. Give me anything and I will help you. I will make you happy. I promise.”

I wait, praying to the stars that somehow, they can send her my message.

As I wait, gazing into her weeping eyes, I learn that waiting for a miracle such as magic to help us, is as useless as carrying the dormant, magical gene of my ancestors’, which will never wake because magic is gone, and it is never coming back. No matter how hard one wishes upon a falling, magical star.

So, I take it upon myself, pulling her little body close, so that I may shower her with all the love that I own.

“If you cannot tell me what bothers you, then we will remain in this room until I have found a way to make you happy. I will find a way to make you happy, little one. I will. That I vow to you, for a vow is a truth that cannot be unspoken but bound by law until kept. Even for a lonely king like me.”

And that is what we do. We remain in our room, me holding her, day in and day out, separating only to attend to the mundane things that we cannot control, but when they pass, wherever we may be in our shared quarters, I make sure to pull her close, holding her as one who would do anything, would do to make her feel, not so alone, because she is not. Not when she has me to hold her during the darkest of days, and brightest of nights.

THE MONSTER INSIDE EBOOK AND PAPERBACK IS BANNED ON AMAZON!

So, something happened… Yep. TMIM has been officially been banned by Amazon. HOW!? WHY!? Questions I would love to know for myself and for my fellow author friends, but guess what? The only explanation I got was a generic automated response saying, “It goes against community guidelines and will no longer be sold by Amazon.” Like really!? That’s all you’ll tell me!? So, now what… Ohh, where and how will my monster series survive? <— Sarcasm. Oh, don’t you worry, little wolf. This isn’t game over for my monsters. Nope. This is just the beginning. Muhuhahaha! That was my evil laugh. Was it scary? I guess I gotta work on it.

Now until this set back is solved, the original version of the ebook of TMIM will now only be sold by Apple Books, Google Play, Barnes and Noble & Kobo. If you didn’t notice, I said (original version) “Hmmm. What does she mean by that?” you ask. Well… Listen up, because this is what’s happening.

THE MONSTER INSIDE ME has been undergoing a massive re-construction and will be introduced with a slightly different name, new book cover, interior design and content. Yep! TMIM IS GETTING THE ULTIMATE MAKEOVER! You thought it was amazeballs before, well you just wait for this new version. It’s going to blow that pretty mouth of yours right off your beautiful face.

Lot’s of changes are coming, so make sure to follow along for all the updates and many surprises to come, but just to let you know, I’ll always post it here first, so if you’re thirsty for knowledge, then come back here and see what’s new.

P.S. I am currently looking to expand my ARC & Street Team, so if you’d like to apply early, check out the ARC & STREET TEAM PAGE and apply!

That’s it for now, my sexy cupcakes.

Until next time!

Dirty romance author out!
