Thank You Edward R. Murrow High School for the Wonderful Day

My Dear Readers!!!

I SOLD OUT OF BOOKS TODAY at Edward R. Murrow High School !!! Oh my goodness, every one wanted one. I left one in the Principal’s office for him. He was not there. I spoke to all my old teachers.

Sadly no pictures but that’s because of time. It was the end of the day.

But I SOLD OUT and signed copies!! I’m definitely going back there in September or October. It’s such a great experience. I might even have an official book signing there.

All of the teachers and workers there were extremely impressed with my book and that I actually did it. They all said they would read their copies over summer vacation.

You know, I always have a warm welcome there but for some reason, today was extra special. Β It’s so great to know that the people there still love me and still care. I even answered a few questions that made me think. Elaine, the physical therapist always found ways to challenge me and make me think differently and I am extremely grateful to her for that.

Now, I really have a lot to think about in terms of my writing, my genre. Maybe, I might even try a new romance genre. I don’t know yet but I’ll think about it. I do need to finish this series first but I have time to gather my ideas.

I just want to say a big thank you to Elaine, Jennifer Gertz (occupational therapist), Sevita Berlin (paraprofessional), Lillain Baer-Sharoff, Allen Barge (Principal), and everyone else who bought my book today, gave me such a warm welcome and I do hope you enjoy my book. I do hope to come back in September or October to see all of you soon.

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

Yours Truly,

An Inspiring Story

My Dear Readers,

It’s been raining all day yesterday. But I don’t care. I had a very good day.

So, for those of you who read or at least started to read my book, Book 1: Forbidden Love(paperback edition click the link), you will know who I put in my Acknowledgment.

Yesterday, I spoke to the woman who suggested that I start writing when I was 13 years old (The same age as Princess Amy). Her name is Irina Danilchenko. You should probably thank her what came out of her suggestion.

I told her that my book was published two months ago on Amazon. You can’t imagine how much happiness there was, squealing, congratulations and she wanted a signed book. Of course, I told her that I would send her a signed copy. After which she said she would buy it for her daughter too.

We talked for almost two hours. I miss her. She lives in Athens, Georgia. I don’t get to see her because she’s a doctor. But we talk on the phone. I can’t believe it, this lady is so awesome and inspiring to me. She achieved her dream and I achieved mine.

As soon as I can, I’ll send her one of the paperback copies I have at home. I still have eight copies. I have to go out and sell. I’m so happy!!! I have been trying to call her and tell her and now that I did, I feel really happy. I remember 20 years ago when I was just starting to write I would always call her and bounce my ideas off her. She didn’t mind it. We talked about everything. She was my sounding board and still even now I love calling her to talk about my ideas though she is busier now but she always found time for me.

Now, she will buy my book. She promised a review and pictures so, I will share them with you. I am infinitely grateful for her because she believed in my dream as much as me.

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

Yours Truly,

Happy Mother’s Day

My Dear Readers,

🌼🌼🌼🌼HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!🌼🌼🌼🌼

I want to say thank you to my mom for everything that she does. I know that she has done so much, making sure I get a good education, that I learn to live on my own though it’s scary sometimes, making sure I am healthy, happy. She has been there when I’m happy, when I’m sad, when I’m angry…always trying to help. We laugh, we cry together but most of all we talk about everything. We will celebrate soon.

I hope all mothers feel special today and everyday.

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

My First Walk to the Library as an Author

My Dear Readers,

You will NEVER guess where I went!!!! I went to the Brooklyn Public Library, my local branch.

With my book!!! Ahhhhh!!!!

I asked them if I could do…..AN AUTHOR EVENT there!!! I showed the lady my book and asked if I could do an Author Event there. I also asked if she thought they would take my book into the library.

The lady said to speak to the manager who will be back on Monday.

I came back it was raining πŸŒ§πŸŒ§β˜‚οΈβ˜‚οΈβ˜”β˜”πŸŒ§πŸŒ§πŸŒ§πŸŒ§ I ran home to get dry. That’s New York weather for you…one minute it’s sunny and 86Β°F and the next it’s raining.

Anyway….I can not believe I did that!! I mean about going to the library and introducing myself as…”Hi, I am the author of this book…” I never thought I would ever say those words and it felt so good… I am the the author of this book, Book 1: Forbidden Love and I am proud of it.

I might go back on Monday so, I’ll update you on what happens.

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

My First Paperback Sale In The Neighborhood

My Dear Readers,

Today something spectacular happened. I sold my first book (signed, of course)!!!

Okay so, going to book signings might still be scary but I will try to go out Β to sell a few copies. Yes, I know my neighbors might look at me like I’m a bit crazy but really, I don’t care. Most of them might not read English but I don’t care, their kids might, right?

I JUST SOLD A COPY. The woman said, “I’ll learn English by reading your book.”

Tomorrow I’m going out. I have to try. Am I scared? Yes. I am but I put my first signature on a book!!! As Diana Rose.!!!!! It felt good. My legs were shaking but it felt good. I’m going to call the library and figure out when I can do a signing at my local Brooklyn Public Library.

Also, any authors here in Brooklyn, come and get a book signed. It may not be 20-30 people like a regular signing but at least help me out.

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

Yours Truly,

Diana Rose
