Released Today An All New Release By Nicole French

My Dear Future Readers,

Today is June 28th and it is Nicole French’s Birthday and Release Day  of Legally Mine,  book 2 in the Spitfire Trilogy by Nicole French.

What can I say about Nicole French?

Nicole French writes contemporary romance and she already published Legally Yours as the first book in the Spitfire Trilogy. She wrote book two which is coming out today, Legally Mine.  Nicole French has a group on Facebook called La Merde. It is a very fun group where Nicole French talks about her books, does takeovers on Tuesdays, and invites new authors to do giveaways of their books as well.

I like Nicole French because even though, I only know her for a short time on Facebook, I think she deserves to be respected for how she shares and promotes her work. I, as an author, sure can learn some things from Nicole French.

I believe that every author has to make their way to the spotlight and the more original you are, the better. Nicole French has written two books which is a big accomplishment. Being a friend and member of her group, La Merde is a delight for me because she allows the members to post their own things too and she is very supportive.

What can I say about Legally Mine?

Legally Mine is an E-book that is about Skylar Crosby and Brandon Sterling who are the two main character. Have I read the book? Not yet!

You want to know why…..

Because as I LOVE helping authors, I have so many free books that I either won or bought which aren’t free, that I have not had a chance to read it. I have Legally Yours on my Ipad.  So, yes, I will read it and review it here on my blog and maybe get an interview with Nicole French to put here too. Don’t worry, this summer will be full of books and new authors. So…….

Where Do I Find My Ideas?

My Dear Future Readers,

Recently, I was asked where I get my ideas from. An interesting question really. Which is why I want to write this post.

Have you ever heard of the phrase,  ideas are everywhere”? I find that this is more true every day.  It is not about finding ideas really  but about finding inspiration to write those ideas down on paper. Or,in my case on this post.  Sometimes, it admit it is hard to find one idea to write. But, I try to think about what I would want to read and that helps me write.  In some cases, it takes longer time but it really doesn’t matter how long it takes, what matters is that you have ideas.

For example, the ideas I am writing down now in my book came really unexpectedly that I me.  Those are the best kind of ideas if I were to be honest with you.  Sometimes, the euphoric ideas are the ones that help you write faster. Now, that is not to say that every author has to write only when they get a euphoric idea. I’m saying that a euphoric idea helps to add words to the story faster.  Authors should write everyday no matter what. It helps to come up with ideas faster when you are already in the process of writing something.

Passion about the things that you are writing about is also important.  Why? Because if you are passionate about the subject you are writing about,  you can find more to say about it. Passion about anything makes a person seem more interesting. For example, when I talk about my book, Book 1: Forbidden Love  or another book that I am writing in the series, I begin to sound different as though I can talk about my ideas for hours if I am not stopped. That is what passion is.  I think that many of us forget about this because we find less things to be passionate about in today’s world.  But it really doesn’t matter what you are passionate about whether it is art, music,  dance,  literature,  reading,  writing or something else,  passion is a good thing to have.

I think if you are writing or making art you also need to learn discipline.  Now, it does not mean you have to force yourself to sit and make art every day for the fear that someone will come and beat you with a ruler like in the old times. No. I mean that you have to devote time to the activity. Enough time to accomplish something that you can be proud of later.

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

Yours Truly,

A Review Of An Amorous Dance By Diana Rose

My Dear Future Readers,

I finished reading An Amorous Dance by Jessica Lauryn today. I am tearing up at the end of this book. Jessica Lauryn is a wonderful author and I am looking forward to her next book.

To be honest, I was entranced by her characters and the action in this book. It truly takes the OSCAR for unique storytelling. The complex relationship between Evan Masters and Hannah Rabourn is quite interesting to watch. Neither want to return to the love they once shared and yet it seems that the gravity pulling these two lovers together is indeed stronger than them. Hannah, tries to withstand temptation but in fact finds herself deeper in love with Evan Masters.

I believe that this book deserves to be a bestseller for the vivid images and complex situations it shows. The reader is pulled instantly into the story and from page 1, it is hard to let go. I found the unveiled secrets of the Theater and Augustus Nathanson to be quite a beautiful addition to the action and intrigue which I had gotten a taste of in A Passionate Play. I believe that An Amorous Dance is even more intriguing and lustful, dare I say it, than I thought it would be.

Every character in this book had a surprising back story which I was a happy witness of. Of course, Jessica Lauryn write very interesting and suspenseful stories for each character in this book and I believe that the romance was very on time in this book. In fact, I would say that at times I felt entranced by the words that Ms. Lauryn writes. I felt like I was being pulled into the story and I was living the scene through the character. That is the kind of book I love most. I love Jessica Lauryn as the wonderful author she is and I can’t wait for Rabourn Theater Book 3 to be out so that I can read it.

 Also, I want to say that in reading this wonderfully written book, I learned a lot about the characters and how to create an intriguing back-stories and characters that are relatable to real life. It is called being a wonderful author when the reader can get emotional over what you have written. I feel like Hannah and Evan have become my “friends” as I read their story. It is not often that I feel that with books But with Jessica Lauryn’s books, I truly feel like her characters have become my “friends.”
I will be doing an interview with Ms. Jessica Lauryn in the coming days and I really am intrigued to learn more about how this book developed so perhaps this will be a two-part interview because of all the questions I have in my head.
DON’T MISS IT!!
I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.

Happy Valentine’s Day To All Lovers

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.

happy-v-day-heart

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.

images-628

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

My Reflections About Co-Hosting the Release Party for An Amorous Dance by Diana Rose

jessica-lauryn-2

My Dear Future Readers:

Today, I want to tell you about the Release Party for An Amorous Dance by Jessica Lauryn. During the Release Party that I was co-hosting with Jessica Lauryn, I got to play two games. Honestly, this has been my second Release Party with Jessica Lauryn and I love helping her out. She is very talented in what she does.

This time, my prizes for the first game, I played at the release party were to give me a title for my next Work-In-Progress Book 3 of my Power of Love Series. Yes, I haven’t finished writing Book 2 but I kind of have an idea of how it can end so that I can start on Book 3. I was hoping to start on Book 3 this year.

The first game was to guess the ages of my two main characters in Book 1: Forbidden Love. I was pleasantly surprised that Jessica Lauryn guessed the right ages of my two main characters at the beginning of the book. Indeed she is a remarkable person.

The second prize for my next game was to give me the ages for my two main characters. I asked the guests what their favorite Disney movie was and why. I ended up liking all the answers but I knew that I had to choose only one winner. So…I chose the choice of Cinderella.

Why? Because when I was a little girl, I could watch Cinderella 1,000 times and I could never get tired of watching how Cinderella had her dream wedding with Prince Charming.I used to hope that one day, I would also meet my Prince Charming. I still do hope to meet my Prince Charming.

My thoughts or rather my feelings after being invited to be a co-host again….I felt as though I have truly begun to finally become the author I always wanted to be. Conversing with already Published authors, I felt completely at home. As though, this was where I was meant to be. Since this is the second time that Ms. Lauryn has invited me I was quite elated. She always makes everyone feel truly welcomed and myself included. It feels good to be among published authors who later become friends and support me.

I am proud that I can support and participate in a Release Party and talk about my writing with authors within my genre even if they write different types of romance books.

To be honest with you, Release Parties give me hope in the future that my books will have a chance in the spotlight as well. It something that I am always ready to help with and especially to such talented authors as Jessica Lauryn. I believe that by supporting great talent, I will be able to gain more friends in the author world who support me as well. All you really need is to be nice  and support them as well. Authors are hard-working people who need to know they are appreciated for their hard work. Yes, I know first hand what that means since I became a full-time author.

So, of course being present at a release party for an author is my greatest honor and Jessica always makes her release parties really fun. I always enjoy reading that she has finished a new book. And even if I did not win a free copy of her book, I still love having fun with her and her other guest authors because this makes me feel like I am part of something special. After all, when a new book is born, I mean published, it is always a good day for the author. All the hard work finally pays off and they can finally see their nae on the beautiful cover and know that they created this.

I sincerely hope that in the near future Jessica will be published again. I love supporting her and being her friend. I hope she will invite me again to her next release party. So I will say this:

“Keep writing wonderful books, Jessica that I am happy to support.”

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

Yours Truly,

Diana Rose

Does Love Have A Face? Part 2: Guest Post by Keith Kareem Williams

death-in-the-city

My Dear Future Readers:

Today, I want to continue my discussion about whether Love has a face or not. I want to say that I think that Love is very hard to find and it is hard to identify whether it is true love or not. Why? Because it may be wearing a mask to not appear vulnerable. After all, Love is a very sensitive emotion.

In discovering the reality of whether Love has a face, I wanted to interview some authors and get their view on the subject. Because, who would better explain their thoughts than authors.

So…..as promised, my first author whom I interviewed about his views on true love and whether love even has a face is Keith Kareem Williams. Here is a little bit about him. Most of these things, I did not know before so, I was pleasantly surprised to learn more about this self-published author.

Keith Kareem Williams – is the author of 11 books & currently working on his 12th. He still resides in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York where he delicately balances his time between his responsibilities as a single father as well as the challenges of being a full-time author.– Keith Kareem Williams. You can find out more about him on his website where you can also see the books he has published. His recent release was Death in the City. Keith Kareem Williams

Now that you have read a little bit about my guest, let me tell you the questions of the interview which Keith Kareem William was willing to give me answers to.

  1. Do you think love can have a face?

I believe that love can definitely have a face. The problem in the world is that so many people don’t recognize true love when they see it. There are many imposters wearing the mask of love and too many people are fooled. That’s why so many people end up heartbroken and jaded.

  1. Would you say that finding love, true love in today’s world as compared to a few years ago is harder or easier and why?

I think that MOST people would say that finding love in today’s world is more difficult but, I disagree. The whole world is more open and accessible than it has ever been. Because of the internet and social media, the world has become much bigger than the block or the neighborhood you grew up in. You can find someone who loves you for real in any part of the world. There’s no need to settle. A lot of times, we end up dating who’s around instead of who we want, or our better match out of laziness, easy accessibility or convenience. Love is inconvenient, usually poorly timed and takes a lot of work to find but in this modern world, you have options and wider reach to seek what you need. The great love of my life might live in Arizona, thousands of miles away. My future wife might be in Detroit, waiting for me to claim her.

  1. What is your definition for true love? Now, I mean the kind of love that lasts 65+ years of marriage.

True love is when someone loves you for who you are at your core. They crave the vibe of your soul and are fascinated by the essence of you. Some people love you because you make them feel good so they use you as a balm for whatever ails them but, that kind of love never lasts. True love is when you are intrigued by all of the minute, subtle things about another person…things that only you see. True love is selfless and it doesn’t always make sense. It just is.

4. Now, about marriage and a lasting marriage, what would you say is a key element to that?

A key element to a lasting marriage is honor. I know that the more popular answer might be love, or friendship but both can be fickle platforms to build a solid, lasting foundation on. Love and friendship are parts of a good relationship but honor is the glue that will hold everything together through the rough patches that are inevitable. You might not wake up madly in love every day but, if you honor your spouse and your commitment to each other, there won’t be any room for anyone or anything to drive a wedge between you. Evolution is important as well. You also have to be able to adapt to changing circumstances without going into panic, or becoming fearful. There has to be a mutual willingness to enthusiastically work through problems together to find solutions.

  1. If indeed you see that it is true love, how do you recognize that?

True love is when someone cares about your well-being, even when it’s not necessarily beneficial to them. True love is when someone would still wish all the best for you, even if you weren’t together. A person that truly loves you wants you to be happy, no matter what, even if you’re not together

6. What if…Love had a face? Would you be able to recognize it for who it is? Or would you walk past Love and not know that face you just saw was love?

I would hope that after a few decades on this earth and a bit of experience that I’d be able to recognize the face of love when I saw it. Love is a strong emotion and sometimes defies logic so it isn’t always easy to accept, or recognize. However, I do believe that true love proves itself over time, not based on what a person says but by the things a person does.

***DISCLAIMER*** these answers represent how I felt on January 16, 2017. As a man who takes pride in evolving and learning constantly, some of my feelings could change tomorrow. That’s life. If you’re not growing as an individual…you’re not really living.

To be honest with you, after the interview ended, I was filled with a sense of hope. Why? Because, Keith Kareem Williams was truthful with me. I never realized that love is not only a sentimental feeling but also honorable. He taught me that marriage…Yes, I asked about marriage….is not only based on love but also on honor because “Not everyday is the same and you may not wake up completely in love on a certain day.” That is true. But also, there was the thought in my head that this is coming from a man and that made it even more valuable to me.

I believe that the things he said about true love are somehow the same ideas that I have grown up with. But the most important part of this interview was that a person should always be growing and learning. I believe that with the beginning finding out whether or not Love has a face is a time for me to learn many things about Love. Love is not only a feeling, it is something that you give back to other people and it is shared but when you don’t share it sincerely it is then that the feeling of love becomes fake.

I do hope to continue my search for the meaning and understanding of love in the near future and I hope that more guest post authors come to talk to me about this because this blog is centered on True Love.

I want to thank Keith Kareem Williams for his honesty in this interview because I did learn a lot as an author and a person. I do hope that he will join me again in the future because it is always important to get a man’s point of view on certain subjects like love and marriage.

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

Yours Truly,

Diana Rose
