Happy Valentine’s Day

My Dear Future Readers,

Today is February 14th, Valentine’s day. I write about true love. How can I miss such a holiday that is dedicated to the feeling of Love? You are right. I can not miss it.

On this day, Love is celebrated and it is good to spend it with the one you love. I believe that Valentine’s Day is special in this way. True love is meant to be celebrated not only on this day but every day.

Love is a feeling that always needed no matter what is happening and on this day, Love for the people around you is more visible because it is the one day when you don’t have to be shy to show what is in your heart.

Take someone you love on a romantic date and sit in a cafe surrounded by candlelight. Give the woman you love a huge bouquet of roses. Or write a poem. Or best of all propose to her with a beautiful ring. No matter what the expression of love will be, it will be memorable because it was Valentine’s Day.

I write romance and read romance only because the way that a person cares for another person is the best expression of Love that there ever was.

The heart is made for feelings and it is indeed our heart that can never stay neutral to the attention we {women} receive on Valentine’s Day. It is this day that we want and crave the attention. I believe that every person in this world should give attention to the woman’s heart.

Yes, I am not in a relationship at this time but every year, I hope that someone will remember that a woman is a woman and a person who needs to be acknowledged. Maybe, some kind of magic will happen and one day, I, too will not be alone on this day.

The Day of Love is a day that should be for everyone and not just for couples. But I believe that Love is something that everyone feels and it doesn’t matter if you are in love or you are just spending the day with friends and family.

Today is a day to show love for the people who you love.  Yes, many people are single but if you care about someone it doesn’t have to be lonely.

Valentine’s Day is a special and beautiful day.

Roses are the best symbol of love and Valentine’s Day. Red roses express romance and passion in the language of flowers.

Roses…Roses….Roses are in the dreams of every woman on Valentine’s Day.  But for women who don’t have a relationship,  they can just be happy to hear words of love from family.

On Valentine’s Day books about romance and true love are more than welcome in the arms of a woman. Reading about romance is almost the same as being loved.  I should know that because I have been reading and writing romance all my life and I am yet to have a great romantic Valentine’s Day.

But as everything else in my life,  it will come when it is ready.  Love is a feeling that always takes time and I am still waiting for the right person to come.

However, on this Valentine’s Day,  I want to  say that I’m grateful for all the Love I have from my friends and family and you,  my dear future readers  because no matter how much I have to wait for the right person,  I know that I have gained something more valuable and that is enough for me right now.

True love is meant to be celebrated not only on this day but every day.  Love is for everyone  and not  just a significant other.

Happy Valentine’s Day!  May be lucky to find true love and hold onto it forever because it is a very rare find.

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

Yours Truly,

Rewrites: The Honeymoon

My Dear Future Readers,

Well, you know what comes after The Wedding, don’t you? Yes, the Honeymoon!!! What kind of romance author would I be if I did not include a honeymoon in my book?

So, I decided that my characters deserved a honeymoon. Writing these beautiful scenes made me smile. I thought a royal honeymoon would be fun to write.

But editing it is harder than I thought. It’s probably because I have no experience with intimate relationships between people. Yes, I know it is a part ofthe relationship. I just feel very ….shy about writing about it. So, editing those parts of the book have been interesting and hard. A lot of rewrites which half the time, I don’t know what I’m doing.

But I mean, the book is almost finished with edits so, I think that’s good. I promise you, I will get through these edits.

The honeymoon was a hard edit but you know what? I did it. Yes, and I’m proud of how it came out. I think it still has the romantic feeling but it is better that it was.

I have even better news now…. my edits are almost done. THREE CHAPTERS LEFT TO EDIT UNTIL THE END OF THE BOOK.  I  am so excited to say that. I can’t believe it.  It feels like it took forever to edit this book but three chapters.  I hope to give you more news on the progress of my book soon.

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

Yours Truly,

Soulmates Are Forever

My Dear Future Reader,

 Today, I want to talk to you about soulmates.  Somewhere in this world there are people who are destined to be together. Sometimes, you can live your life and never meet your soulmate. But, some people who are lucky, get to meet the one who they will spend the rest of their lives with.  It’s the one person who you feel extremely close with and who you trust 100%.

Soulmates are extremely rare in today’s world, rare to find and that is why I decided to write this blog post. No, I did not find my soulmate as of yet (stop looking at me like I’m crazy to be writing about things I have not found yet). But, I do plan to find my soulmate. It is not as easy as putting in a search engine like Google looking for a soulmate and millions of options show up. Many people look for years before they find one who they were meant to be with.

But you know me, I always have hope for a better day. It is not easy at times but I figure that it is better to smile than it is to cry. Besides crying is bad for the health of the person. That is why I choose not to cry.  My soulmate is somewhere out there and I believe that he is looking for me. In today’s world, it’s important to not give up on hope.

That is why I write about true love. For true love is unimportant who you are as long the person truly loves you. Even if he isn’t a prince with a crown, he could still love you. Happiness can come from anywhere and you just have to recognize it. The right people for you may not be right for anyone else and that is why they are called soulmates. Every soul has their own mate and who they want to live their life with.  I am a firm believer of a true match made when people first meet.

Of course, if that person is not  the soulmate of your life, there will be signs that can’t be ignored. You need to be open to seeing these signs before things get too out of control. But, on the eother hand, sometimes people are too blinded by their feelings to see the obvious signs that the person is not their soulmate at all. The hardest aspect is of course finding your soulmate because it is like “looking for a needle in a haystack.” But that does not mean that it is impossible.

My suggestion is to allow yourself to have an open mind the next time you think that you found your true true love because the signs are always going to point you in the right direction.

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

Yours truly,

Her Knight In Shining Armor

My Dear Future Readers,

A little girl dreams of a Knight in Shining Armor. A Prince who would carry her off to a beautiful castle where they would live happily ever after. As a young girl who enjoyed watching Disney movies and reading old fairy tales, I, too believed in this dream. After all, isn’t it grand to be carried off into the sunset by a dashing gentleman who risked his life to save you?

A person, usually a man, who comes to the aid of another, usually a woman, in a gallant and courteous manner.

 Yes, it is. But as we grow up that dream fades because we realize fairy tales are not real. Fairy tales don’t have to be real to make you believe. You believe because you know that fairy tales were there when you needed someone to prove that good things really exist. So, you believe in the Prince who would take you away and make your life beautiful. It is that exact image that every girl grows up with. Painting a picture in her head of a handsome Knight in Shining Armor who would fight to protect her with his own life.

 But each of us have our own Prince. Meaning, when the time is “right” he will come. Yes, I can understand that many of us, women don’t want to wait. So, we go out looking but I believe that if true love is meant to find you, you don’t have to look too hard because he will find you.

I believe that a knight in shining armor does exist. Maybe, the prince has forgotten the fairy tales and therefore forgotten about looking for his princess. It happens. In fact, people say “you need to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince.” Maybe, there is some truth to it but perhaps it is not the only thing.

Knights should be brave, confident, and come to the rescue. So far, I have not met a man like that. It feels like that kind of person is rare and at times, my girlish dreams seem wrong. But, I want what I want and I know that if I stop wanting to meet a person like that, I will never meet him.

I know it seems silly, but I believe in getting my own magical fairy tale happy ending and yes, it may make you laugh but I do believe in happily ever after.

Why?

Because in the world that we live in everything is sometimes really gloomy and unfeeling. The sentiments of romance and  a happily ever after  ending is rarely visited if only in fairy tales and that is why we must  strive to believe in a happily ever after. In the words of actress, Ginnifer Goodwin who plays Snow White in Once Upon A Time:

“What are fairy tales? Fairy tales are a sense of hope that one day everything will be okay and that a happily ever after does exist.”

This  is why I strongly believe in happily ever after and knights in shining armor. After all, knights in shining armor are a wonderful representation of fairy tales and dreams  and hope.  Sometimes, it is this hope that dreams come true that pushes us to go forward and achieve something that  we thought was impossible.

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

Love Is Like A Dance…..Missteps Happen

My Dear Future Readers,

I want to talk about something different today….. Mistakes. After all we are all human and we make mistakes. Even more often when it concerns the matters of the heart. But the real mistake is refusing to listen and notice the other person and their body language. If you love someone deeply, you should be attuned to his or her body language. In fact, the way the body speaks is a dance in itself.

It is frustrating to explain everything in great detail to the person who should be able to see when you are angry or sad or disgusted. It is not hard to see what the person is feeling on his or her face. You just have to care enough to see it. I believe that genuine people can notice every emotion and not make you even angrier. Noticing and acknowledging emotions is a big part of loving the person and building a solid relationship.

Making such a mistake repeatedly will never make your relationship better. People are different and they express their emotions in different ways. I’m lucky enough that I can put my frustrations on paper. In doing so, I can relieve my stress onto the page. Other people cope in other ways. But all people feel disrespected if their emotions are triggered by another person not listening to them or picking up on their body language.

I believe that love and respect go together no matter what kind of relationship you have with the person be it romantic involvement or not. A person is a person no matter what. I know that it is a subject that everyone can relate to because we all have that one person who we constantly have to explain even the most minimal things to. Yes, I do too. And I believe every person deserves to be treated well.

Even the body language is a form of respect Mistakes happen but people have to learn from those mistakes and if they don’t you should not suffer for it.

If you feel emotions through your very soul like me, you might be an empath and if that person just acts like you are not sitting there with a scroll on your face and giving them the silent treatment then they don’t understand who you are. That means you should just avoid them and if you can’t just ignore them until they go away. Because you can’t explain every little thing to them and the chances that they will understand are very small. They just don’t understand that everything you feel is multiplied by ten times.

Why?

Because, if it is a strong feeling you will keep thinking about it for days. I know it sounds strange but it is true. I know I should give up on being angry right now but I just can’t. It just doesn’t feel right. Every person has their own psychology and I have mine and I know that people will understand who have been disrespected with their emotions. People who care do not do such things. If a person cares about you they try to help you to not bring stress into your life. Especially, if they love you. Life with the one whom you love should NOT be filled with stress.

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

Is There A Happily Ever After in Love?

My Dear Future Readers,

In every romance novel, fairy-tale, and romantic movie there is a happily ever after. The evil doers get what they deserve, and the happy couple lives on to get married and be happy. In romance a happily ever after is a guarantee.  True love always  ends with a kiss and a wedding. That is why I love reading romance novels and watch romantic movies. But most of all, I love writing romance.

It is exciting to watch my characters fall in love and do all things that I dream of doing in real life. As everyone knows so well, all romance books have an antagonist–the bad guy who tries to ruin everything– which is also important for the story. Despite what happens to the characters, the heroes always come out on top. But, is that always the case in real life? Do the heroes come out on top? Or are they pushed down by problems so much that a happily ever after becomes blurry?

I would very much like to think that women can control and fight their own dragons and evil doer but men are there to not let them. Of course, if that man is truly a Prince Charming. Love is a something that is unpredictable but yet it is the thing that we crave and we wait for, for most of our lives.

WHY?

Because, every woman wants a man like those she reads about in fairy tales. A brave hero who will come to her on a white horse and carry her off into the sunset. Every girl dreams of a happily ever after because real life is much harder than it is in fairy tales. It is the only way that woman knows she will get married to the right man by imagining the princes from the fairy tales carrying her off. I think that true love does exist but it is hidden from us. True love goes deeper than love can ever go. True love is a feeling that connects you to the person so deeply that your wish is to make them happy. True love means that you can only be with that one person and no one else would do.

I believe that all the Disney fairy tales explored true love because it is a very rare feeling. Not everyone in the world is lucky enough to find that one special person even though, we all try. That is also the reason why we are in love with romance-the kind of romance that Disney allows us to see, because Disney is a promise in itself of true love and a happily ever after.

Yes, there is a happily ever after if and when we choose to fight for it. Magic happens only when we (women) become the rulers of our own lives and bring the Prince to us. I have no say in the matter yet because I have not found my knight in shining armor yet. But so far, I have learned to fight my own evils.  Surprisingly, fighting my own evils has not been so hard. In fact, it is something that I have grown into and now it does not seem so daunting.

However, I still look back at the fairy tales that I knew as a child and wonder if perhaps a “Prince Charming” would be better suited for helping me fight evils that arise in my life. Life is as unpredictable as love itself. But if fairy tales do come true and a knight in shining armor does exist then, let the men of today know that true love is when you want to stand by the one you love always and forevermore. True love is not a fairy tale but the beginning has been inside a fairy tale. I do not know when I shall find my true love but I will keep fighting until he will stand by me to help me.

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