Happy 4th of July!!

My Dear  Readers,

HAPPY 4TH Of July!!! 🎆🎇✨🎆

Today we all celebrate freedom in its own way. Every time I think of Independence Day, I think of how lucky I am to be here, to be done with school and college and to be doing what I love. I am grateful that I made this decision to be a full time Author and even more importantly a self-published Author. True, it doesn’t come easy but I am not dependent on anyone. I am completely independent and I publish my books when I’m ready.

In fact, isn’t that true independence, to be able to do what you want and not depend on anyone. So, thank you Karen D. Neal, Jessica Tahbonemah, For your help in my new career. Yes, career because I do plan to make this my career. Thank you Jessica Lauryn for my first wonderful 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 star review. To be compared with Romeo and Juliet is a great honor. Thank you so much to Kristi Cook for taking a chance on me and reading my book. I am grateful.

Independent, this word means so much to me in so many levels. Not only in my Author life but also in my every day life. Being independent is something I have learned comes slowly and stays forever.

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

Yours truly,

Monthly Update: Book 2: Sacrificed Love Progress

My Dear Readers,

I apologize for not writing. But I have been healing and trying but failing to stay offline. I love you all so much I can’t stay away.

I’ve been taking walks outside fairly often now. I did take a few pictures.

This is from my first few walks outside.  I used to love taking pictures of nature. Summer always reminds me how beautiful nature is.

This was yesterday. I took a long walk and even made a new friend….here’s a few pictures of her….

Isn’t she gorgeous? This kitty wanted to talk so I stopped and I couldn’t resist.  I took a few pictures of her. I think she was lonely.

And now…..the most important news:

Book 2: Sacrificed Love is coming soon….I will be starting edits for Chapter Two soon. My editor just sent them to me yesterday.  So, I have no time to sit around and be bored.  Plus, my cover designer and I will start something new for you next week. No, don’t ask me, it is a surprise! I know you love surprises. Don’t worry, it’s a wonderful surprise.

Speaking of surprises…Guess who bought my book?

Kristi Cook , Author of The Winterhaven Series bought Book 1: Forbidden Love. To say that I was happy is to say nothing because I was in tears when she told me. My goodness,  this was my dream come true!! I still can’t believe that a famous Author bought MY BOOK! I must still be dreaming.  I’m ecstatic, I feel like I am flying. I really do hope she likes it. I keep thinking about it. I must have made a very good impression on her if she decided to read my book. MY BOOK. I keep hoping that someone will buy it and now I am flying because a Famous Author is reading my book. THIS was the best surprise of my life.

Anyway,  I’ll be back with more news soon. Don’t forget to click the link to go straight to Amazon and buy Book 1: Forbidden Love. For now,  that’s all.

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

Excerpt #2 from Book 1: Forbidden Love

My Dear Readers,

Today is Saturday and I promised you an excerpt from Book 1: Forbidden Love.  I hope you enjoy it.

Excerpt from Book 1: Forbidden Love by Diana Rose

Copyright 2018 by Diana Rose

As he helped Amy fold her clothes into her chest, Darien sat up straight on her bed, remembering that he had brought her a gift. He put his hand into his suit jacket. “I want to give you something special,” he said as he took out a small, but beautiful box.

    “Oh, Darien, you shouldn’t have. All I want is you,” Amy exclaimed, as she carefully took the box so as to not drop it.

    “Please accept this gift. Open it when you arrive at your new home.”

    “Of course. I promise you.” Amy leaned against Darien and smiled at him. She felt, somewhere deep in her heart, that this was not the last time she would see Darien.

Her bags were packed and ready to go. Darien had said his farewell and left without a sound through her window. In case her parents were home, Darien did not want to get yelled at for coming to see Amy. The window was his only way out. When he left and Amy was sure no one had seen him, she took the box that contained Darien’s gift and placed it inside her handbag along with her hair accessories.

A few hours later, Amy stood by her carriage and said goodbye to her family. She was leaving to an unknown world. She did not know what to expect from the other castle that was so far from her family–and especially Darien. We could’ve been so happy together. I miss him already. Oh how he used to hold me! And those eyes, I’ll never forget those eyes. How could my mother do this to me? Does she not have a heart? What is Darien is my soulmate? Would she be able to live with herself knowing that she is tried separating two people that are meant to be together? Amy’s thoughts jumbled around in her head, making her unable to focus on anything else. All she wanted was to turn back and see Darien again. As she sat in the carriage, Amy sadly realized that with every hoof beat she was being driven farther away from her true love.

Excerpt from Book 1: Forbidden Love

My Dear Readers,

After careful consideration, I decided to bring back the excerpts I posted on my Author Page. This was the first one I posted yesterday from Book 1: Forbidden Love.

  You can also read Jessica Lauryn’s Goodreads Review.  She gave my book a 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 review.

I hope you enjoy it.

Excerpt from Book 1: Forbidden Love by Diana Rose

Copyright 2018. All Rights Reserved.

The first thing that halted Amy were the blue eyes that penetrated her entire being. The captivating gaze had an almost magical quality about them which mesmerized her. Her heartbeat quickened. Air was trapped inside her lungs as she held her breath in anticipation–for what was the question she did not know the answer to. She shook her head and pulled herself out of the trance-like state she had not realized she had been in.

When she looked into those large pools of blue, Amy felt her heartbeat in her ears. The entire universe seemed to disappear, leaving them alone in all its vastness. Then, Amy saw a silver crown nestled on top of his ebony hair. She seemed to wake up from the spell they were both under as she realized he was a prince. This realization came with many questions Amy had no answers to. What kingdom is he from? Confusion set in as to who the young man was and where he had come from.

    His face glowed in the sunshine. She could tell he was also confused. Pale red lips seemed to fit his skin tone to perfection. With broad shoulders that made his height look larger, he seemed slightly taller than her. His arms showed that he had been trained in sword fighting or running to keep himself fit. The mysterious prince wore a light blue suit with a white rose pinned to its pocket. A crisp white shirt was visible under the suit jacket. His cleanly polished shoes reflected the sun on their black surface.

“Who are you?” Amy backed away from the strange being slowly, unsure of whether or not he was dangerous.

“You have nothing to fear,” the young man reassured. However, the princess was not yet convinced

Release Plans for 2019-2020 (Can change)

My Dear Readers,

So since I saw this being posted in Jessica Wayne’s group, Jessica’s Wayne-o’s.  I thought I would give it a try. But There’s something you need to know about me, I write very slowly because I have to put a lot of thought into my books. But, I thought you might like to know what I am planning for next year, 2019 as well as 2020 potentially.

Here goes:

2019:

Book 1: Forbidden Love is rereleased on Amazon now…Amazon Kindle Link
Amazon Paperback Link

Book 2: Sacrificed Love, I plan to start edits and hopefully publish it in 2019.

Book 3: Undying Love continue writing hopefully finish by end of 2019.

Book 4: Title to be Announced-start by end of 2019
Book 5 and 6? To be decided in December 2019
April 4, 2019- at Kingsborough Community College will be my first time doing a Book signing. Possibly two.

Possibly in May 2019 (Date May 16 will be available to listen to in June)- I will be doing a podcast interview with Author Kristine Raymond. (Word Play is Kristine Raymond)

2020:

Hopefully start working on Annabella Serenity’s story again as well as a brand new book Series that I have been toying around with this year.

I do hope that the next two years will be very productive. If I could fit in two releases a year that would be a great win for me.

Well that’s it for my plans.

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