That page has two excerpts from Annabella’s Beginning posted. The rest will be here blog posts. I will be deleting those excerpts and adding new ones. But the deleted ones will go into regular blog posts. Work In Progress by Diana Rose

Excerpt from Annabella’s Beginning (Chapter One): 

Once upon a time when mages and healers were real, five of the most powerful Mages created what would be known as the Elkins Islands. The land was full of life with beautiful lakes where colorful fish swam. The water seemed to glitter in the sun. Birds flew around and made their homes in the treetops. Butterflies landed on flowers as tiny grasshoppers made music with their wings. The branches of trees swayed in the light breeze. All sorts of flowers sprouted up from the ground and lifted their petals towards the warmth of the sun. Everything was so peaceful and breathtaking that if for one second a person would close their eyes, they would find tranquility.

  The scent apple trees and other more exotic fruits filled the air. Those large apples that dripped with juice once they were cut were the island’s treasure. The soft breeze carried along with it the sound leaves moving in the wind. Every part of the large island had its own animals that walked freely among the trees. Baby birds tried to fly and chirped to their mothers. Somewhere on the far end of the island,  a waterfall flowed down into the river below. This waterfall connected to the other parts of the island and it could been seen on the other end.

  The other side of the island was also connected by the same waterfall. The glitter shined everywhere from the magic the Five Mages had used to create the Elkins Islands. Flowers and fruit that had fallen from the trees was everywhere. Every part of the magical world that the Five Mages had created was like an oasis where tranquility resided. The smaller parts of the island had secluded towns that were built farther away from the waterfall that connected each part of the larger island together.  

  In order to preserve the island as it is, the Five Mages used ancient magic to make the islands invisible to people who weren’t born there. These islands were small but they fit into each other like puzzle pieces that made one big island. The Five Mages infused the Elkins with their magical powers so that it would keep them safe from the outside world.

 In time, people found out about the Elkins Islands and came to there because their own homes were unsafe from evil that began to spread. But with the protection of the Mages, it was easy to relax and begin life again.  

I hope you enjoy it.

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

Yours Truly,

Work In Progress by Diana Rose, Chapter 2: Annabella’s Beginning

My Dear Future Readers,

This post is from my New Page. Which I copied here. There is a new Work in Progress Wednesday that I posted recently along with this one. Work In Progress by Diana Rose

Here is the FIRST Work-In-Progress Wednesday Excerpt from Annabella’s Beginning Chapter 2:

Somewhere deep in the forest where there were no people, stood an old house. It looked like a mansion of thousand of years old. From the outside it gave the impression of being abandoned. But, this old mansion was far from it. No one knew that inside the grand house lived a very beautiful woman. She lived alone and yet she was far from being isolated. This mysterious woman had power that was forbidden by all the unspoken laws of magic. Her name was Ana

  Ana lived and dreamed of one thing: to be powerful enough to control the entire island and all who lived there. But there was one problem, she was not as powerful as she needed to be.  The only person who could make her powerful was still a child. So, she needed to wait. While she was forced to wait, the evil sorceress decided to start her plan of demolishing the Elkins Islands.  The people would not notice the change until it was too late.

  She had been planning this for a long time. Now, it felt right. She would finally become powerful. Preparing to begin the spell that would crumble the most beautiful island, Ana collected everything that she needed. Soon everyone will see that the Five Great Mages of those Islands are not as great as they appear to be because my spells will undo everything, Ana laughed. Her laughter echoed through the entire forest. But there was no one to hear her. She was completely alone but she knew that soon that would change and everyone would know her name.

What do you think?

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

Lesson # 18: Cover Reveals

My Dear Future Readers,

Today I want to talk to you about something fun. Covers. Book cover reveals. It’s true that my book isn’t out yet and doesn’t have a cover yet. But that does not mean I can’t talk about it.

My friend, Jessica McCrory already published eight books. The Runner’s Daughter was just published on February 15th.  I helped her with the cover reveal.

You may be wondering what is,a,cover reveal? I’ll tell you.

Lesson # 18: Cover Reveals

A cover reveal is a special day when an author gets the chance to show everyone the new cover for their new book. Some authors ask for help from other authors to help spread the word about  the new Cover. I did it for Jessica McCrory and to be honest, I really enjoyed it. I got a chance to use this blog in a new way.

I learned that besides the actual publication of a book, the cover reveal is a very exciting day in the publication process. The cover of the book is like the face of a person…every face is different and yet it has to be attractive enough for another person to stop and talk to you or buy a book. Which is why it is important to have a good cover.

I also think that the cover of a book distinguishes your book from other books. Every cover just like every author is different. The reader should be intrigued by the book cover enough to buy the book. It is important to know what you want on your cover before it comes time to put the cover on. The author’s wishes are the most important.

Don’t let anyone decide for you. Decide for yourself!!!

Remember that your cover and content define you from day one. It is up to you to write your best. Be your best. Write what you believe in.

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

Yours Truly,

FBI agent Caid King has fought long and hard to end the corruption within his organization. After the fall of Clayton Matthews, he returns to New York with his head held high and his eye on the next target. He never could have imagined that the dangerous man he’s set his sights on would have ties to the beautiful blonde he found himself instantly drawn to.

Jemma Saige thought she had it all figured out. Her rules for survival were simple. Keep your head down, your bags packed, your running shoes on. But when she meets a man at her local gym, their attraction threatens to break the last and most important of those rules: don’t get tied down.

Now with Jemma’s secrets out in the open and both her and Caid’s lives on the line, can they find a way to work together? Or will Caid turn his back on the runner’s daughter?

I am still reading the advanced copy and let me just say, YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK.

Teasers for The Runner’s Daughter by Jessica McCrory

The Runners Daughter New teasers.001

The Runners Daughter New teasers.002


I have always had a love of stories and the different worlds you are able to explore when you crack open the cover to a good book.”

I was born in California and moved to Texas with my family when I was a teenager. I have always been an avid reader and have been writing stories since I was a kid! It has always been a dream of mine to have my stories published and it is beyond exciting to see that dream coming true!

I have a caffeine addiction, I am a wine (red!!) lover (my favorite being Crush by Dreaming Tree!) and I love T-shirts (the kind with the hilarious sayings on them). I am OBSESSED with the TV show Scrubs and I watch it constantly. I have an amazing husband who is more supportive than I could have ever hoped for, two sweet kiddos (who keep my life wonderfully eventful), three dogs, a rabbit, and most recently Hefty Smurf the beta fish.

Growing up, reading was my way to escape reality whether it was good or bad at the time and I want my stories to offer readers the same kind of adventure I have sought out in between the covers of a book.

I hope you will buy the book and enjoy it. Please leave a review for Jessica McCrory.  I will.

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

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,

 Diana Rose
