An Amorous Dance Release Party Co-Hosted By Diana Rose


My Dear Future Readers,

On Saturday, January 14th,  I was invited to co-host Jessica Lauryn’s Release Party for her new book, An Amorous Dance , the second book in her Rabourn Theater Series, which is now available for Preorder.

Jessica Lauryn is  also the author of The Pinnacles of Power Series a romance suspense series. It was this series, in fact, that started Jessica Lauryn’s writing career. I believe she has a lot of talent in writing Romance. Her books find a way to both intrigue and fill the pages of her stories with emotion that only romance can do.

Romance suspense is a genre that explores suspense and gives an equal amount of suspense and romance in one story. I believe that the ideas that Ms Lauryn comes up with in her stories are so realistic that at times they reflect reality.

I am pleased to be invited again to be co-hosting with her. For as long I have known Jessica Lauryn, I think of her as very gentle, kind and beautiful woman who is very romantic at heart. I am glad that I can once again support her beautiful talent and be a part of her success with her new book.

Authors stick together and help each other and this wonderful woman has always inspired me to go forward as she herself has been doing. She inspires me to write more because I have seen how many books she published and each book is hard work. That’s why I love the person she is. Her books have the same amount of heart as she does.

Jessica Lauryn’s new book is the continuation of The Rabourn Theater Series. It tells the story of Hannah Rabourn one of the daughter’s of the late  owner of the theater and her past love Evan Masters. It is a very exciting and thrilling story of a reunited love in the midst of lost memories and attackers who threaten Hannah.

Jessica Lauryn’s main characters always find a way to each other despite the obstacles that used to divide them. There are memories that Hannah suppressed but now has to remember in order to sort through the motives of her attacker.

I believe that I like this book and that I will enjoy learning more about Hannah Rabourn and Evan Masters at the release party on Tuesday. It an honor for me to be a part of Jessica Lauryn’s upcoming release party because she is a wonderful author who is motivated and dedicated to her writing. I believe that this blossoming author will write a lot more beautiful books like those she has already published.

The Rabourn Theater Series is just starting and it is surprisingly an intriguing series. It intrigues me especially because I myself have been a part of a theater class in my college days. I took some acting courses and I have grown to like it. Which is why reading Jessica Lauryn’s new series about the theater and the suspenseful acts that go on there amidst the love that blossoms between Hannah Rabourn and Evan Masters is very close to my heart.

I participated in a Solo Performance in my college which is why I think that for anyone who loves acting and theater as much as I do this series is the best choice. I am an honored guest and I hope that many of Jessica Lauryn’s readers will enjoy this book. The description of the events in the book really makes the reader want to find out about what happens next. Do Hannah and Evan fall in love and stay together? What are the memories that Hannah tries so hard to remember?

I’m sure that all those questions will be answered in the book, An Amorous Dance by Jessica Lauryn. This book will reveal much more about theater and the people who work there as well as the romances that go one behind the scenes when the curtain closes.Of course, I will tell you more about my experiences during this Release Party. But, I will say this…

At the moment, there are a lot of people who have come to support me as I co-host this Release Party with Jessica Lauryn and I am humbled and grateful to them because they are all also published authors whom have become my friends and support me during my starting out career as a full-time author. Thank you! Thank you!

I will be posting another blog post after the Release Party ends. I want to tell you my reactions after the event and also share with you what it feels like to be a part of a Release Party for the second time as an author. It will be posted sometime on Thursday or Friday so that I can have time to write it.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.

Yours Truly,

Does Love Have a Face?-Part 1

My Dear Future Readers,

Today, I want to  ask you a very important question: Does Love have a face?

Now, many of you might laugh at my question. Go ahead and laugh. But I’m totally serious. This blog is called The Magic of True Love and I realize that I have not talked a lot about Love in my blog as of recently.

SO….I’m here today to change that. Which is why I am going to explore the idea of love more closely. It is said that everyone whom we meet has a face. Everyone has a name and a body. Think about it. What if….Love had a face? Would you be able to recognize it for who it is? Or would you walk past Love and not know that the face you just saw was Love?

It is possible to walk past it. It is possible to not notice and be ignorant of the signs. But, it is wiser to notice and pay attention to the signs of love.

What am I saying? I have no first hand experience, do I? No. I don’t.I’m just like everyone here, looking for a mysterious stranger in hopes that he will be the face that I was meant to find. But honestly, I just wanted to write to you all today and give you some hope. Yes, hope that I rarely have myself but yet, I share it. Why? Because everything relies on hope. Especially love. It is a feeling that seeks out hope and takes it to make things happen. In the hope of finding love is why I write the types of books that I do. It is my way of exploring the idea that true love still exists in the world. It felt right to me. And so does this post.

Now, you want to know why I am so confident in the idea that true love still exists. I’ll tell you, I know that this is only my personal opinion but I saw it work. I know what two people in love look like and many of you think that it may be just me trying to persuade you to believe in love but I will do none of that. You are all smart enough to make your own conclusions.

But…..I want you to know that I write about true love because I have seen it happen around me…to other people. Not me, no. But, to other people. It is sometimes as easy as seeing someone on the street or bumping into them in the elevator of the building you live in but recently, in 2017, it is not as easy anymore. It is much harder than you might think. Which is why I wanted to know for sure if Love has a face.

In my next blog post I will be interviewing Keith Kareem Williams, a self-published author who recently published Death in the City, about this subject. I will tell you more about him in my next blog post. I look forward to this interview and honestly this is going to be my first interview of a published author. Exciting!! I’m sure that he will have some interesting insights into the subject of Love having a face or not. We will see in my next blog post. Get ready to meet him.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.

Yours Truly,

My Reflections After Writing for Week

My Dear Future Readers:

My year started off with writing. I absolutely love that it did. WHY? Because, writing everyday takes away all the stress I feel. I believe that starting from January 1st I was writing everyday. Writing a blog post everyday does count as writing. I feel like within this week, I have kept myself accountable for having to write everyday. Today, I want to share with you what it made me realize.

When I write everyday, I can let all my thoughts go on the page. Writing everyday for a week now made me think that I can accomplish more with every day writing then I did when I didn’t write for days.

Even if I don’t have a set subject to write about I can always find one. Like today, I didn’t know what to write about so I decided that in order to not waste my day, I would write about what I felt last week when 2017 started and I started writing every day. So, as you can see, there is always a topic or an idea that you can write about. That was my first realization after the first week of the year was over.

 As the first week of January came to a close and now it is week two, I begin to see that writing has become my main goal of the day. As they say, “No pain, no gain.” Well, I think I can identify with that phrase now. Writing is hard but once I get it started and I mean, really started, I don’t dare myself to miss a day. No. It is important to understand that the promises you give to yourself are the bones that keep you more accountable than the ones you give to others at times because you want to be proud of yourself.

During the first week there were times when I thought I would not write at all but then I sat there and thought to myself that I could not miss a day. No, I had to at least write something for the day. And that made me think l that starting with something that motivates me makes me want to write more and improve my writing.

“Be the writer of your life today and tomorrow you will see a change.”

I choose to do as much as I can each day so that no one can ever say that I was lazy and missed a day. It is important to act the way that you want other people to see you. If you want to be a success then you have to show it. And I am going to show it by writing everyday. It is what I can do. So, today, I reflect on my first week and then there will be more. Yes, I don’t write as much I could but at least I write everyday. It is my biggest accomplishment with the start of 2017.

Also, I think that this week, I found that writing everyday has improved how fast I come up with ideas to write about. That it good because I can process my thoughts faster. Even if I am just sitting down to write for the first time that day. It is important generate ideas fast in order to write faster and thereby finish what you are writing faster. I learned that if you think about the topic for a blog post as you continue to do other things, you won’t lose your train of thought when you return to the computer. Also, I have managed to learn to type faster and that is also a way to not lose your train of thought.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.

Yours Truly,

My Writing Goals in 2017

My Dear Future Readers:

Today, I want to talk to you about my writing goals for….January. Because, let’s be real for a second, I can not say that the entire year will be smooth and happy. But, we can take it slow and focus on one month at a time.

I want to write everyday for a month to get back into the habit of doing it daily. I also plan to use this time to finish a few blog posts and a few chapters of a work in progress. It is at least what I want to do this month. Yes, I sometimes don’t feel like writing at all but I hope to change that because this is what keeps me  going. Yes, writing is the one thing that relaxes me so that I don’t have to think about real life.

Now, everyday for a month may seem like a lot to anyone, even me but it isn’t. Or at least I hope that it isn’t. I have a hard time with writing everyday and I admit it. It’s just that I sometimes have to force myself to do it and I don’t like doing that. Some days, I’m just tired or had a lot to do that day but I know in the back of my mind that I have not written anything that and so at the end of day when I should be getting ready for bed, I sit down and turn on my computer and start to write.

Yes, I write some days well after midnight and I am not ashamed of it. And now, about my goals….

Firstly, I want to write every day as I already said. Secondly, I want to write another few chapters and maybe get this new idea going. I hope to write at least 500 words each day that way I can get my idea developed. But the trouble is that sometimes I can write more if I am into a scene and the next day not write at all. Today, (January 5, 2017) I wanted to make sure that I finish this blog post so that tomorrow I could get back to my idea. Yes, I do write a lot and I AM an author. It is what I do best.

Anyway….My third goal is to record my word count everyday on my new word count tracker so that I stay motivated this month and I can use that motivation in February as well. January is always a beginning that is what I not always good at. Sometimes, I can stare at a blank page for hours and not know what I want to fill it with. Words, obviously! But what words and about what? I always tend to ask myself that ever since I started school and yes, I wrote what was asked of me but a blank page has too many possibilities if you know what I mean?

So , my fourth goal in relation to writing is to not stare at a blank page too long. Or, I risk not writing anything at all. My goal is to let the possible outcomes not overwhelm me at the time that I am sitting down to write. It is important that I let my ideas flow. I can fix whatever needs fixing later but I need to let my brain be free to see the blank page as an opportunity for more ideas to be written rather than freeze because I am intimated by the blank page itself.

These are my only goals for January. I’m sure that next month there will be other goals that I will with you.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.

Yours Truly,

Thoughts for the Year Ahead

My Dear Future Readers,

2017 has already begun and I want to share with you some of my thoughts as I start the year. I got up and turned on my computer today and my first thought was that: I have not written anything today yet. I have to find something that I can write today. So, I searched through my computer files and when I did not find anything that was worth writing, I decided to write mmy thoughts down in another blog post.

That thought surprised me though. I was always good at writing but not good at being motivated. Now, motivation has different meanings in itself. You can be motivated to achieve a high score on an exam or to run everyday or to eat healthy. But last year, I realized that I have not been really motivated to write everyday. In fact, the only time I did write everyday was in November. Which was a great achievement in itself for me.

Now, as I start my second year in being a full-time author, I realize that being motivated has a lot do with being organized. Last year, I got a word count tracker…..I LOVE THOSE THINGS!! It helps me see how much I write each day which helps me to stay organized.

Whoa!!! My SECOND YEAR as a Full-Time Author!! I can’t believe it!!!! I think to myself.

“Believe it,” the other people around me said.

“But, it’s… a dream,” I said. In fact, it seemed like a dream to me all this time. I can barely believe that on January 1st of 2016, I made the decision to become a full-time author. And now, I made another important decision which is to write everyday and keep myself motivated.

But, there will be days when I am unmotivated. What? I’m human! I can be unmotivated too.

“Yes, but…you made a promise just now,” my brain says.

“I realize that….but…..” I say not knowing how to justify myself for the future.

“NO buts! You always keep your promises. You are a full time author and you will act like it,” my brain says.

I sigh and nod. Yes, I suppose that is true and I should at least try it. I mean, I do have the word count tracker. I’m just being a bit doubtful right now is all. But I am writing my second blog post in a row so I guess, it isn’t so hard. I just need to take it one day at a time. Right? Right! I finally think.

This year, I want everything to be different. I learned alot of things from last year about motivation and I will try to fix all that this year. I feel better when I am writing and that I should keep doing. It is about being able to have discipline enough to do this every day even if I don’t blog every day.

Today, I know that I am more ready to be responsible for my motivation and organization and I know that this demands attention no matter which way you put it. Writing demands time and thought. It is what I love to do. This is the day that I want to do better and I know that I will respect myself for it later.

Yesterday was the start of a new year and I feel like for the first time in many years, 2017 started the way that I always wanted it to…with writing. I don’t know what anyone thinks or care but this the BEST way that a year could have ever started for me. Which is why I am so motivated this year to continue writing everyday.

2017 was exactly the push I needed and now, I can only continue what I started. I’m sure that slowly my progress will show and that is what makes me happy right now. That is why I have decided to be a full-time author to not let my creativity frizzle out and wilt. But, now more than ever, I can see that effect start to happen. That is what makes me happy even more.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.

Yours Truly,

New Year Plans and Thoughts

My Dear Future Readers,

Today is New Years Day and as the tradition says, we must make plans for the year ahead. So, as I like to follow tradition, I believe that it is time for a change and therefore, I want to tell you what I want to do with in 2017.

Please stop judging me as I will put it here not only for myself but for yoyu as well. I am still learning to be a public person.

In 2017, which I hope will be a good year, I hope that I will be able to make more blog posts for you. I know that I have not been consistent with my blog posts and that is why I want to fix this injustice. You deserve to know what is going on in my life as I continue on my journey of a full-time author.

Next, I want to create a habit of writing everyday. I almost did it in November but I did not win the contest. This year, I want to write as much as I can throughout every month so that by the end of 2017 I might have another book finished. I am eager to start and I believe that writing every day will make my progress increase.

Also, I want to say that now that I can track how much I write everyday, I will be able to see more visually how I accomplished. That is what is also important. Yes, I might not write a lot but at least I can write everyday. For a full-time author who is just starting out, like myself, it is important to notice every little achievement and celebrate it as that will be what forms good habits later on. If you don’t push yourself, you will never achieve greatness.

Now, I’m not saying that I will achieve greatness in one day, what I am saying is this:

“I am going to give 2017 the a month by month try. I will put my best effort to focus on my writing as much as I can so that I can write a book by the end of this year.”

Yes, there is life and life happens but most important is to keep the promises we make to ourselves. It is time to take things slow but serious. I can no longer excuse myself for not making writing a priority. If I do, I am just neglecting my own promise. It is something that I can’t do.

My third promise to myself and to you, is that I will find a way to organize my writings so that I can write everything I need but not get overwhelmed by having to write too much in one day. Today, for example, I choose to write this blog post. It is not a lot but I did it. If I do everyday a different writing project, I will able to do everything I need.

Yes, it took me a whole year to realize this but that is not the important part. The important part is that I did realize it. Now, I can move forward in life. I can make the necessary changes I need.

I want to become a success and that starts today with how I focus on my writing goals and what I achieve every day. Yesterday, I was still learning and accepting my new life and today I am going to make a change starting from January 1st and I have a goal: to keep writing everyday no matter what. Writing is what makes me happy and I will do it everyday no matter what.


I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.

The Hopes of an Author

My Dear Future Readers:

Today, I want to talk about hope.

Hope: is an optimistic attitude of mind based on an expectation of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances in one’s life or the world at large. As a verb, its definitions include: “expect with confidence” and “to cherish a desire with anticipation.”

We all have hope that something good will happen to us someday. We tend to hope that there are things in this world that have not happened yet but they will happen and then we will be happy.

As a full-time author, I believe that hope is very important and at times more important than everything else. Hope is what keeps every writer doing what they do best-write.  It is the hope that talks to them.

“One day you will be a famous author. You will be a best-seller like Nicholas Sparks and Danielle Steel. You will be able to stand tall and have pride in that the world is reading your books.”

 Sometimes, that hope is so quiet that you can barely hear it but it is there in the back of every person’s mind even those who are not writers. But especially writers. After all, being an author and to have your name on a book is a dream that is based on hope and luck and talent. Why do I use the word “luck“? Because, if you are not trying to achieve something, luck or no luck you won’t get what you want. I learned from a young age that people who don’t work hard, never get anywhere. But it is also true that a person who does not have hope will get discouraged very easily.

Hope is the key to going forward without stopping. It is the force that says, “Look, there! I see a light.”

At first you think, No, I still have all this long way to go. What are you talking about? It’s too far.

Then, Hope comes back to you with something positive that makes you think. “You have come this far with the belief that I will help you. Why not believe in me again and most importantly, in yourself now?” Hope asked. It seemed that Hope was trying to be reassuring of the facts that you could no longer see because you started to doubt your journey.

“But, Hope……I…..I am starting to think that this pointless…..” you say to Hope with a shrug.

“No, no, it is not at all pointless. You just need a break. It is the stress of your everyday effort talking right now. I won’t let you give up. You will find your success, I promise you that,” Hope said in a firm tone.

“When?” You question Hope.

“Soon, I promise. Just don’t give up because if I didn’t believe in your success, I would not be here. You need to let yourself calm down enough to see that I am right,” Hope said as it patted the Author’s shoulder.

The Author sighed. “Yes, you are right. I should have more hope that everything will be okay in the end. We had this conversation many times and I still have doubts sometimes,” The Author said with a frown.

“Yes, we had this conversation before and we will have it many more times. We will continue to have it until you stop doubting that things will be okay,” Hope said with tone of complete conviction.

Finally, the Author sighed and went back to writing. After all, writing was what authors were supposed to do. Perhaps, Hope was right and all this young author needed was to continue writing. After all, pen to paper or even the click of the keyboard was calming.

Hope stood there quietly over the Author’s  shoulder and watched as more words appeared on the screen. Hope was happy. At least for today the Author seemed calmer………

I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.

Yours Truly,
