My Dear Readers,

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.

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

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

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.

THREE DAYS UNTIL Book 1: Forbidden Love is Rereleased

My Dear Readers,

We are getting so close to the rerelease of Book 1: Forbidden Love. Three days until the rerelease of Book 1: Forbidden Love. Oh my goodness! I can’t believe it is actually going to happen.

Years ago this was a great idea that I had and now I’m eagerly awaiting the rerelease date. October 15 is going to be a busy day for me. But for the first time in three years since my grandfather died, this day, his birthday will be a happy day. This will be a gift to him and me. I’m just glad that I can rerelease my book on this day. It almost seems like he will be there with me even though he is gone.

Three days…….Are you excited yet? I really hope so because I have been waiting for this book for a long time. I know you have been waiting patiently for it too. But in three more days, the wait will be over. And everyone will be able to read the book. Isn’t that exciting? I am doing this all on my own time. I have people who love and support me.

“Don’t worry….this is just the beginning! There will be plenty more books coming. That’s my promise to you. ” – Diana Rose

I am planning more after this so, yes, it might take me some time to make write because let’s face it writing is hard but there will be more  books coming. Let me just say this:

“Get ready because Diana Rose will be publishing many books. My name will be in lights.” – Diana Rose

Anyway, three days until the rerelease of Book 1: Forbidden Love. Get ready. Amy and Darien are coming and you will want to know all about them and their family. There’s more to the story than you know.

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

FOUR DAYS UNTIL Book 1: Forbidden Love is Rereleased

My Dear Readers,

Four days. FOUR DAYS….. I can’t wait to share this book with you. In only four days, I will be rereleasing Book 1: Forbidden Love on Amazon.

Wow, I’m totally amazed. This book started with me wanting to tell the world about my grandparents’s love. At thirteen years old, I was amazed by the way they cared about each other.  I wanted other people to know about this. So, I created the story of Amy and Darien. For me, this story is always going to be special because of my grandparents.

This story has a lot of things that I took from old stories they told me but in fact it is about two people who really love each other. Yes, love. Love is something that I have seen in their home and I grew up believing that a love like my grandparents shared is the definition of true love. I believe that this story is the beginning of something wonderful. Perhaps, even one day, it might help someone.

In four years, you can all read this book for yourselves. I know, it’s my first book but I am in love with my two main characters. Especially with Darien. He resembles the kind of person who I would want to spend my life with. No, I’m not kidding. Darien is really the best hero in a book. Trust me, this is only the beginning, I will have more of him and Amy in my next few books (subtle hint at the series).

Anyway, yes I am still writing Book 3: Undying Love but it is slow.  I really just want to rerelease Book 1: Forbidden Love because it’s been a long time and a very long wait. I just really hope that you like it.

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

Yours truly,

FIVE DAYS UNTIL Book 1: Forbidden Love is Rereleased

My Dear Readers,

Can you believe it? There are only Five Days left until Book 1: Forbidden Love is rereleased….

To me, it still feels like a dream. A dream that I have been having for many years. Some days I still feel like I am dreaming. But I am finally going to see this dream come true.  I have worked so hard to make it happen. Now, there are only a handful of days left. Wow!

It was such a long road and yet, I came out on top. I believe that the fact that set me apart from the rest of the people my age is my determination not to give up. Yes, it was hard but I knew I had to keep writing and keep looking for a way out. I finally came to the conclusion that if I do it myself, no one will do it for me.

So, these beautiful five days are a reminder of how far I have come. Yes, from a dream and a simple writer,  I have learned about marketing, promoting, publishing and writing. I have learned to not give up but instead, keep going. I believe that I have learned about marketing in a whole new way thanks to Vistaprint who have shown me that creativity and being an author really do go together. I now have different things that I can give out to my readers.

Now if only I can manage not to freak out until the rerelease yet again, that will be great. But I am not making any promises. We will see what happens. It’s five days until the rerelease so, yes I am stressed out. I wish it was easy but so far,  nothing has been easy for me from the start. Not that I expected it to be easy, just a little more uncomplicated than the rest of my life. But that’s not happening so… I will just have to go through this one day at a time.

Who is excited for October 15th?

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

Yours truly,

Diana Rose
