You thought choosing the President was difficult!

Hello again, my beautiful fans. It's me again, CJ Roberts.


In case you weren't aware, it's my birthday today. I always get down on my birthday - usually because another year has gone by and I'm still wondering what the hell I'm going to do with myself. But not this year. This year? I'm fan-fucking-tastic (even if I'm 26 for the 7th year in a row)!


I'm not going to write you another mushy thank you letter where I tell how you've changed my life and made it more than I ever thought possible because then I'd get emotional and you know I hate that. Suffice to say, I love all of you sick fuck's.

Instead, I'm going to get the BIG stuff out of the way and then regale you with an epic recap of this past year. So... what's the big news? Well, YOU LIKE ME, YOU REALLY LIKE ME!



I am thrilled to announce that Seduced in the Dark has made it into the semi-finals for BEST ROMANCE 2012!!! Wow! Seriously.



I was gobsmacked. For starters, I wasn't on the list for votes - I was a write-in. Second, there was no erotica category and I never imagined I could compete in the romance category. Finally, you couldn't even write me in for the first two weeks due to a glitch in the system. So basically, MY FANS, THE BEST FANS EVER, waited for the problem to be fixed and then wrote me into the ballot!

I was like:

So what now? Well, I've got some steep competition. But just being nominated is HUGE and I want to say:



And also: PLEASE GET OUT THERE AND VOTE! I mean...Please, get out there and vote. LOL!

Semifinal Round: November 12 – November 18 
Final Round: November 19 – November 27




Okay, so now that that's over, here's a look at some of my highlights this year:

Photobombed by a celebrity


I made a bookstore in Australia!

I hung with an icon...

BEST FANS EVER!



 









Me and NYT Best-selling author Colleen Hoover

 Partied like a Rockstar at the 2012 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

Took a roadtrip with great friends to promote my books and stalk Charlie Hunnam

In summation, THANKS FOR THE BEST YEAR EVER!!!!

  7. Happy birthday!!! I'm so, so happy for you CJ! You really deserve all this epicness AND making it to the semi-finals! It's been months since I read Seduced in the Dark and I'm STILL thinking about it. I read tens of books each month and many of them just whip past me and then eventually get forgotten. I forget the details, the characters, the hopes, the dreams, the motivations.. but not with The Dark Duet. I still remember it all clear as day because those books have stuck with me! I'm still recommending them to friends and bloggers.

    You've had an amazing year and I hope next year is just as good!! ♥ ♥ ♥

  16. Happy belated B-day! I've already voted SITD for several categories/awards at Goodreads. AND! I'm seriously finding it hard to read anything else!! The duet series is just so effin captivating and the writing is fantastical!

    Now, I think I'm going to do a poll. Let's see who wants MORE Duets. I know I do! And yes, Reed will be awesome (not sure about Sloan?), but I'd like to see Felipe and Celia's story. OH, and KID too! So many ways you could go with this. Okay, I'll shut up now. :b
