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,

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 ๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒงโ˜‚๏ธโ˜‚๏ธโ˜”โ˜”๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒง I ran home to get dry. That’s New York weather for you…one minute it’s sunny and 86ยฐF 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.

New Updates About My Writing

My Dear Readers,

So, I have some more news for you and I am making some good changes to my writing process.

๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“šUPDATES:๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š

โ™ก I just did something I never did before (and I’m sitting here like: Ahhhhh!!!!). I sent Book 2: Sacrificed Love to a Beta Reader and from what I hear Krissy Gott loves it so far. So, I decided that I will have 2-3 Beta Readers from now on to read my books.

If you want to be a part of this, let me know. But keep in mind, I’m very shy about my first drafts.

โ™กI am writing Book 3 and on Chapter Two. So, it’s still in progress.

โ™กJust a reminder, I have 10 copies of my book, Book 1: Forbidden Love in my box right now so as soon as I figure out PayPal, I’ll be posting a link here. I’ll be going out soon, it’s getting warmer so for those who reserved books with me, Karen D. Neal, Isadora Sunday, will get them. Keep in mind that there are ten copies and I have people who requested before publication as well.

Okay well, that’s all for now. I might do something LIVE soon. I am still thinking about a design for my business cards. Hopefully I will figure that out soon so I can order.

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

Yours Truly,

Lesson # 20: Always Keep Writing

My Dear Future Readers,

I learned that no matter what is going on in your life, you should keep writing. It’s true that writing can be hard and you may not want to do it but that only means you need to put in more effort. It doesn’t matter what you write as long as you are writing. ย A blog post, a letter, a book, or a note the important thing is that you write.

Writing books is hard but all you need to remember is that you need to take it one step at a time. One word at at time. One sentence at a time. Yes, sometimes even I have to remember that because writing a whole book takes time. Sometimes I don’t feel like I’m moving but really, it takes some time to write a 300 page book. But when you are on page 45, it feels like a long way to page 300. All you can do is keep writing. ย No matter what anyone says or does. You have something to say so say it.

I’ve read books that I wanted to put down and yet others make me feel like I could not wait to find out what happens next. Usually these books and authors are the ones I keep reading. ย Like pick an author and read all their books. ย Yes, I’m a book collector. ย I love book gifts. Especially, signed paperbacks. I love it. I get to read, take pictures of the book and review it.

As an author, I would love to have that kind of respons to my writing. ย Yes, reviews are important. ย But more important are the emotions that the book makes the reader feel. That’s why I keep writing. ย I want to make my readers feel like there is hope, love, and truth in happiness. It may feel like happiness is hard to find but if you believe like the characters in romance novels, ย then it is never far away. I keep writing to make the world a better place a more loving and caring place. I write about royalty but really all this can be found in the real world.

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

Yours Truly,

Diana Rose

Book Review of The Runner’s Daughter by Jessica McCrory

My Dear Future Readers,

Jessica McCrory just ripped out my heart and glued it back together. She is the most incredible author I ever met. The Runner’s Daughter by Jessica McCrory is a masterpiece of epic proportions. Let me tell you, when I started reading this book, ย I had no idea what I would read or how I would react to it. But, this book….ladies and gentlemen, took me through self discovery and understanding like no other book ever could. I understand who I am now and in more ways than I care to admit, I saw myself in Jemma Saige.

Jemma Saige is a headstrong woman who fought against everything that people thought she was not to free herself and to come out on top. Not every woman can do that. ย But as I read the book, I began to understand that I am like her. Never stopping…going forward.

The Runners Daughter Teasers MASTER.003

The romance between Caid King and Jemma Saige was so heartwarming and at the same time heartbreaking because of the fact that Jemma was running for her life and Caid was trying to help her. At different points in the book, I found myself crying because it was so real. Especially the part with Liam Charmont, he was a true “monster” and it made me consider the people I know who act like Liam Charmont. Yes, such people exist which is why it was so real to me.

The Runners Daughter New teasers.001

I love this book so much! If I start talking about Caid… it would be about how I felt when I read this line. I felt safe and loved and I wished that Caid King was real. He is a remarkable character and I love how he “takes charge” of the situation. No matter what Caid protects the ones he loves. Jessica McCrory is an amazing person and author of romance and truthfully, ย I could see all this in my head. I love the way she writes her characters and I hope that one day I can write like that.

The Runners Daughter New teasers.002

I would recommend The Runner’s Daughter by Jessica McCrory to everyone who likes romance suspense. ย Trust me, this book will ย keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.

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

Yours Truly,

Diana Rose
