My Interview on Passion Between the Pages with Jessica Lauryn

My Dear Future Readers

On Friday, June 30th, I was interviewed by Jessica Lauryn. I had interviewed her some time ago when she first published A Passionate Play. You can reread her interview here: Interview with Jessica Lauryn about A Passionate Play. I was happy to bring Jessica Lauryn on my blog and until now I did not have a chance to come to her blog until Friday.  You can read my interview on Passion Between the Pages here: Passion Between the Pages.

My Experience as in Interviewee:

When I was asked if I wanted to be interviewed. I instantly agreed. Why? Because, one: I know Jessica Lauryn for a very long time and we are good friends. Second, I loved the questions that Jessica Lauryn asked. I was excited to share with Ms. Lauryn things about my book. I wanted to make sure that people know where the idea for Book 1: Forbidden Love and the Power of Love series came from because for a long time I have not said anything about this to anyone.

Why?

Because I thought it was too soon to start talking about the ideas and inspiration for this series. But, now as I edit the book, I began to open up to the public about my inspiration for the Power of Love series. I believe that it is important for people to know that ideas for books don’t just come out of thin air. Different authors find inspiration for their books in different places.

I find my inspiration from my family’s history and the stories that my grandparents told me. I think it is important to respect the stories and love of those people who cared enough to tell you their story.

I think that my experience as an interviewee was a wonderful thing because I felt like my ideas and my words were not taken lightly and received the respect they deserved. Also, I feel like I gained more future readers after the interview than before it. That makes me happy. I wanted to reach more people and I think I did that and for that I am grateful to Jessica Lauryn. I hope to have Jessica Lauryn interview me again one day soon or I will interview her. It’s always good to have authors as friends.

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.

Interview with Jessica Lauryn about A Passionate Play

My Dear Future Readers:

I am extremely pleased to have Jessica Lauryn on my blog giving  another wonderful interview.

Ms. Lauryn agreed to talk to me about her new book that came out on November 28, 2016 called A Passionate Play. I wanted to know about how Jessica wrote this book and her new series, The Rabourn Theater Series. It is interesting to me how another author writes her books and makes them so intriguing every time.

In my previous blog post, A Passionate Play Reviewed by Diana Rose, I expressed my thoughts about A Passionate Play after reading it. In fact, this book had made me think about a lot of things and the idea of “strong women” and what it means to be a “strong woman.” In A Passionate Play, Jessica Lauryn explores this concept and makes it interesting to the reader. Which is also one of the things that I wanted Ms. Lauryn’s opinion on in my interview with her.

I truly hope that you enjoy this interview because I feel that Jessica Lauryn speaks about very important things in her interview with me.

  1. What inspired you to write A Passionate Play?

Year ago, before I was published, I was struck by the idea of writing an amnesia-themed romance.  My thought was to create a story in which the hero and heroine were already connected (past lovers, currently involved). The story would take place in a secluded mansion and the heroine would have no understanding of how her circumstances came to be.  In general, my story ideas tend to come from simple themes that build in my mind over time.  In the case of A Passionate Play, years later, when I decided to write a romantic suspense series that would be set in a musical theater, I took the amnesia-theme from my Rolodex of story-line-ideas-in-reserve and decided that, from this idea, I’d create book 1 for the series, in which the heroine would not remember her days of being an actress. This idea allowed me to introduce the setting of the theater slowly, so as build up some suspense before actually “opening” the theater’s doors for readers in book 2.

  1. What kind of research did you do for this book?

I haven’t had any personal experience working in a theater or playhouse, so I did a lot of research in this area.  I was also fortunate because, as luck would have it, my editor did have experience working in a theater and she was able to point out some of the finer aspects of the various jobs there (stage manager, director, etc.)  I am so grateful to her for the assistance she provided me!

  1. Did you know that this book would be a series when you started writing it?

When my idea was simply to write an amnesia-themed romance, I did not, at that point, plan on turning A Passionate Play into a series.  But later, when I decided to write a series set in theater setting, I came to see that the two ideas would work well together and I plotted out five connecting stories, in outline form.

  1. How do you plan out your series?

Once I have an idea of what the underlying plot/theme of the stories will be I’ll work out the simplest ideas first (character names, settings, etc.), and I’ll build to the more complicated aspects of the plot, just as I would if I were writing a stand-alone novel. I then outline each of my stories as best as I can, working to both structure them and simultaneously connect them.  I do, of course, make changes as I’m drafting but the idea is to give myself as much of a jump-start as possible, so I understand, from the beginning, where I want my series to go.

  1. Was it hard to come up with an idea to write this book?

No, not at all.  I tend to come up with ideas for new stories well in advance of being ready to write them and A Passionate Play was no exception.  (If only writing were as simple as just coming up with the ideas, I’d have a hundred books published by now 😊) As it happens, the idea for A Passionate Play came to me before my debut series The Pinnacles of Power Series was published, and the time that it took for me to write this series gave me a lot of time to get my thoughts together for The Rabourn Theater Series.

  1. Are you a big fan of theater? What plays inspired this story?

My experience with theater consists of seeing a handful of Broadway and Off-Broadway plays but the few that I have seen made a lasting impression.  I found Phantom of the Opera and Beauty and the Beast to be particularly romantic shows and both served as inspiration (as well as wonderful music to listen to!) while writing A Passionate Play.

  1. A few of your scenes seemed to be truly realistic, example, the bear scene and also the scene where Alicia gets attacked. How realistic were these scenes to you? I mean, did you imagine yourself in these situations?

The bear scene was one of my favorite to write!  Though I am primarily a plotter, this was one of those moments that came to me as I was actually writing, as I simply allowed the characters to tell the story. The thought of being chased by a bear is terrifying and I did envision myself in the situation, in effort to feel out how Nick and Alicia would handle themselves.  I strive, always, to put myself in my characters’ shoes, to get a grasp on their feelings and to see things from their perspective. [This practice has led to me having tremendous sympathy for villains and even reforming a few of them – one of my favorite things to do in books!]

  1. The relationship between Nick and Alicia was quite realistic and funny at times. Was there a specific memory that you used to write this or was it just the way you imagined the story?

I have, in the past, drawn from personal experiences when creating my stories.  In the instance of The Rabourn Theater Series, the finer points were purely imagined.  However, I do put a part of myself into every character I create, both the heroes and the heroines.

  1. Do you believe that a story like Nick and Alicia is possible in the real world in today’s society?

Even more so than I have in the past with regard to contemporary romance, I strived to make Nick and Alicia’s relationship one that really resonates with the modern ways of couples today, people dating in their 30s.  As the first major characters that I’ve personally written about who are engaged in a relationship prior to the beginning of the story, Nick and Alicia were unique to me and I considered carefully what the dynamics of their relationship would be, deciding in the end that the two had lived together and been sexually active before the story begins.  It was very interesting experience for me, writing a romance from this point where the majority of romance novels typically don’t begin.  One aspect of the relationship that was particularly fascinating (with regard to the dynamics of Nick and Alicia’s relationship) is Alicia’s career – though Nick is hiding the truth about Alicia’s life, she has essentially achieved the higher level of success career-wise, which creates yet another challenge for this already-fiery couple.  In my opinion, a story like Nick and Alicia’s is highly possible in today’s society and a happily ever after is possible as well!

  1. Would you say that Nick had a hard time admitting his feelings to Alicia? Why?

As heroes often do, Nick appears, at first, to have an issue regarding commitment.  But this may not be his issue at all – we see as the story progresses that Nick is harboring secrets which may play into a deeper reason for his reluctance in admitting his feelings.  I won’t spoil the story for you!  I’ll simply say that Nick is a good man, conflicted, without a doubt, and his heart is (almost) always in the right place!

  1. Do you believe that people a generally scared to admit they love each other in real life? Why?

As I see it, more than a reluctance to admit to being in love we are a society of people who sometimes profess our love quickly, perhaps with a lack of understanding as to what it is we truly feel. Love is the greatest gift we have to share with one another. It is the essence of our being and the greatest of all phenomenon—what connects us and what is our true purpose for existence. But speaking strictly of romantic love, crushes can sometimes be mistaken for the real-deal.  And true love can be hard to admit to, when one is terrified of a broken heart.

  1. What made it easy or hard to write this book? Why was it hard? Why was it easy?

When I first started writing A Passionate Play, I struggled with getting into a new group of characters.  I was still very much into the throes of writing The Pinnacles of Power Series and my head was not yet in my new series.  Once I’d concluded The Pinnacles of Power series however, I freed up my mind to get to know my new characters, who I now know very well. I had a vision for Nick and Alicia, as I do for others, the couples yet to be written about in The Rabourn Theater Series. Having an idea of where things are going with regard to my characters ahead of time is tremendously helpful to me when it comes to writing their stories.

  1. How do you come up with the idea for your antagonist and main characters?

I begin with very simple ideas for all of my characters—some physical characteristics I’d like them to have, some personality traits—and then I test them out, editing as it seems appropriate as I draft their stories.  At some point during the process things become much clearer and I’m able to fill in whatever blank pieces remain, such as the characters’ background stories.  A few of my character inspirations have come from real life. Many are just plain fantasy.

 14.  Would you say that true love really does conquer all in relation to A Passionate Play and real life? Explain.

I knew, of course, that Nick and Alicia would live happily ever after and clearly, for this stubborn couple, love is what paves the way to them finding common ground. Real life is not as easy to control as a story is but love plays the same role here—it is what make the challenges of a relationship worthwhile.

  1. I noticed that Alicia is very strong in the book, do you believe that strong women can find true love as well?

I believe that every woman is strong and that each one of us brings a different sort of strength to our world. Sometimes that strength isn’t easy to recognize, or to define. But finding it, and figuring out how to best use it is a critical part of figuring out who we are as women. When we love ourselves, it is from this place only from which we can truly love another.

After interviewing Jessica Lauryn about her book, A Passionate Play, I learned a lot of helpful things about writing. For example, when outlining your book if it is part of a series, outline the series too. Also, just as I hoped to  hear, it is advisable to finish one series before starting about something new because it clears your head for more ideas.

Also, I learned more about the characters in A Passionate Play and how she wrote it. I really think that this book and Jessica Lauryn’s attitude towards her character resembles my own in the way that we both try to see the situation at hand through our eyes and correctly add the character’s feelings after evaluating our own feelings in the situations that our characters deal with. In a way, I feel more related to what Jessica Lauryn writes about after this interview.

I also, would like to mention that I am reading the second book in The Rabourn Theater Series right now. So, there will be another interview coming up about Book 2: An Amorous Dance. I want to thank Jessica Lauryn for giving me a wonderful opportunity in interviewing her for my blog because I LOVE her books and I am honored to be her friend. Being friends with this talented romance author is incredibly lucky and honorable.

I hope you enjoyed this interview.

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

A Passionate Play Reviewed by Diana Rose

My Dear Future Readers:

I have read many romance novels in my time but this is my first time reading a Romantic Suspense genre.  This book was the first book I read from Jessica Lauryn. My first impression of this book when I started it was that Ms. Lauryn took the subject of the theatre and turned into something magical. The characters were extremely lifelike. This story took me through a journey of the onstage performance and what the actor’s life behind the curtain of the theater was like. Everything seemed simple but it was not as the story showed me what the main character, Alicia Coleman was truly like when she had lost her memory. Her feelings for Nick Lancaster at first when I first read about him in the first part of the book, are not simply love or hate, she showed confusion quiet vividly, I might say. It was apparent that Nick and Alicia have a very complex relationship. At times, their conversations made me laugh, made me feel angry that Alicia didn’t understand that Nick meant to protect her.

At other times, Nick’s way of caring for Alicia made me happy because it was clear that he loved her and he just had a hard time admitting it. It was fun to see in my mind the scenes that Ms Lauryn so vividly paints with her words. The Bear Scene was the most fun for me to read and it was really clear in my head as if I could see the bear charging at me as I try to escape the bear. The emotion of fear and terror was clearly portrayed. Also, the scenes with the attacker was quite emotional and scary, yes, scary. But this a part of a good author’s job to portray emotion and scenes as if they were happening to the reader right then.

As an author, myself, I learned a lot from the way Jessica Lauryn wrote her descriptions. Her description in every paragraph was different. It was like an adventure to me to read this book. Every turn of a page made me want to read more of it and I ended up reading two-three chapters in one day.  I was so intrigued by this first book that I purchased Book 2: An Amorous Dance even before I finished this book. I could not wait to start Book 2 in this series. Honestly, I was so entranced by Jessica Lauryn’s talent in pulling me into her world that I want to read more of her books and follow her example in developing my own writing in a way that will pull my future readers into my books.

Jessica Lauryn is my new favorite author and I hope to read all of her books. She is my inspiration for writing books that people love. It is a great honor for me to know her and how truly beautiful she is on the inside and out. My favorite author and I I am starting to read An Amorous Dance right away. I hope to follow her career as she writes more because she is my inspiration.

After reading A Passionate Play, I believe that there might be a great story behind it which is why I wanted to ask Jessica Lauryn for an interview. She will be talking about the story of how she wrote this book and her inspiration in writing in my next blog post. Writing series of books tends to be freeing at some point because you can address your characters from all sides and I believe that this comes much easier to Jessica Lauryn right now. But I do plan to use that example as well. She is also the reason why I feel that writing a series of books is something that I want to do.

Writing a series to me is like living with the same people for a long time and getting to know them well enough. A series is something that means that you can not leave the characters. It gives you more room to explore your characters and I believe that it is a good choice for authors like Jessica Lauryn and myself. I believe that it is a good thing for an author to love their characters a lot because then the readers will love them too.

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

Does Love Have A Face? Answered by Jessica Lauryn

jessica-lauryn-2

My Dear Future Readers,

Today, I am very excited to be talking about true love to Jessica Lauryn, author of The Pinnacles of Power Series as well as her new series, The Rabourn Theater Series, An Amorous Dance Book 2. She is a Romance Suspense author and An Amorous Dance was just released on January 17th. It is on Preorder at Siren BookStrand.

I, in fact went to her Release Party for An Amorous Dance which you can read about here: My Reflections About Co-Hosting the Release Party for An Amorous Dance by Diana Rose. It was in fact the most enjoyable party I have ever been to. I won more than I just being a co-host. I won a title for my new book. which is a completely unexpected find.

I am very happy to talk to a fellow romance author about true love because as romance author we write about true love every day. And so, here are the questions that I asked Jessica Lauryn in my first interview with her.

  1. Do you think love can have a face?

Though there are many different ways that this idea might be interpreted, I believe that love, in and of itself, could be described as a face.  We see the face of love whenever we’re served with an act of kindness from another person.  To me, love can be defined as the overwhelming desire to give selflessly of one’s self for the sake of another.  When I look into the eyes of someone who loves their neighbor as they do themselves, I am looking at love’s face.

  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?

There is no doubt that we’re living in strange times, and the verbiage that we hear in our world through social media, news outlets and general conversation can rarely be described as loving.  Disheartening as that is, I believe that the people in our world have a tremendous capacity to love and that this is as true today as it ever was.  We find true love in the most unexpected ways, at times when we least expect it.  True love is not meant to be completely understood. It never dies and we find it when we’re meant to find it.

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

I believe true love begins with a spark experienced between two people, a fascination that never dies, whether they’re on their first date or celebrating their seventy fifth wedding anniversary.  When two people are truly in love, they bring out the best in each other and they inspire one another to be their best selves.  They cannot imagine their lives without the other person.  They share values on a deep level and they grow to become part of one another over time.

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

I do believe that sometimes, soul mates quarrel and go their separate ways.  But to make a marriage work you must have, first and foremost, trust and honesty. Respect and consideration go hand in hand to working as an equal partner to one’s spouse.  All couples fight but those who truly love one another fight fairly.  Their desires and values lead them along the same path.  Neither feels the need to compromise.

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

As we often see in novels, I believe it is that moment when a person feels as though they have been hit by lightning when they suddenly realize that they are truly in love.  To an observer, true love can be recognized in couples who exhibit true consideration for one another, who are highly attentive to the needs of their partner and put those needs before their own.

  1. 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 see love in the faces of my family and friends every day of my life.  Concerning my own true, romantic love, my eyes are always open and when I see him, I will know it!

To be honest with you, I cried on question  number three.Why? Because that is exactly what I saw happen to my grandparents. Yes it made me emotional to read that answer. I believe that Jessica Lauryn echoed more than one of my views on this subject. I got to see another side of her and more like a person rather than just an author of the wonderful books she writes. Her views on love also echo the beliefs that I was taught as young girl from my grandparents’ love story. Which is also the large reason why I, myself, write romance.

I do hope that out there in the world of today there are still people like Jessica Lauryn, myself, and my grandparents who are not with us anymore but have left their love story as an example, so that those of us who still have these same views can find happiness.

This is in fact the kind of love that I write about and I believe that the way Jessica Lauryn spoke about it is the most correct point of view on the subject that comes from a romance author. True love is meant to be shown in actions towards another human being and that in fact is harder to find. I mean, to find the kind of love that is shown in everyday actions and thoughtfulness. Yes, I believe that it is possible.

 I believe that if we keep looking, one way nor another we will find this kind of love.

But as my grandfather used to say, “The question of when that happens is a war secret.”

I, honestly never understand that but as I keep looking, I think that it is true. You can not know when something will happen but you can only hope that it will happen.

I hope that you enjoyed Jessica Lauryn’s interview on my blog. Next interview will be featuring a different author.

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,

An Amorous Dance Release Party Co-Hosted By Diana Rose

jessica-lauryn-2

My Dear Future Readers,

On Saturday, January 14th,  I was invited to co-host Jessica Lauryn’s Release Party for her new book, An Amorous Dance , the second book in her Rabourn Theater Series, which is now available for Preorder.

Jessica Lauryn is  also the author of The Pinnacles of Power Series a romance suspense series. It was this series, in fact, that started Jessica Lauryn’s writing career. I believe she has a lot of talent in writing Romance. Her books find a way to both intrigue and fill the pages of her stories with emotion that only romance can do.

Romance suspense is a genre that explores suspense and gives an equal amount of suspense and romance in one story. I believe that the ideas that Ms Lauryn comes up with in her stories are so realistic that at times they reflect reality.

I am pleased to be invited again to be co-hosting with her. For as long I have known Jessica Lauryn, I think of her as very gentle, kind and beautiful woman who is very romantic at heart. I am glad that I can once again support her beautiful talent and be a part of her success with her new book.

Authors stick together and help each other and this wonderful woman has always inspired me to go forward as she herself has been doing. She inspires me to write more because I have seen how many books she published and each book is hard work. That’s why I love the person she is. Her books have the same amount of heart as she does.

Jessica Lauryn’s new book is the continuation of The Rabourn Theater Series. It tells the story of Hannah Rabourn one of the daughter’s of the late  owner of the theater and her past love Evan Masters. It is a very exciting and thrilling story of a reunited love in the midst of lost memories and attackers who threaten Hannah.

Jessica Lauryn’s main characters always find a way to each other despite the obstacles that used to divide them. There are memories that Hannah suppressed but now has to remember in order to sort through the motives of her attacker.

I believe that I like this book and that I will enjoy learning more about Hannah Rabourn and Evan Masters at the release party on Tuesday. It an honor for me to be a part of Jessica Lauryn’s upcoming release party because she is a wonderful author who is motivated and dedicated to her writing. I believe that this blossoming author will write a lot more beautiful books like those she has already published.

The Rabourn Theater Series is just starting and it is surprisingly an intriguing series. It intrigues me especially because I myself have been a part of a theater class in my college days. I took some acting courses and I have grown to like it. Which is why reading Jessica Lauryn’s new series about the theater and the suspenseful acts that go on there amidst the love that blossoms between Hannah Rabourn and Evan Masters is very close to my heart.

I participated in a Solo Performance in my college which is why I think that for anyone who loves acting and theater as much as I do this series is the best choice. I am an honored guest and I hope that many of Jessica Lauryn’s readers will enjoy this book. The description of the events in the book really makes the reader want to find out about what happens next. Do Hannah and Evan fall in love and stay together? What are the memories that Hannah tries so hard to remember?

I’m sure that all those questions will be answered in the book, An Amorous Dance by Jessica Lauryn. This book will reveal much more about theater and the people who work there as well as the romances that go one behind the scenes when the curtain closes.Of course, I will tell you more about my experiences during this Release Party. But, I will say this…

At the moment, there are a lot of people who have come to support me as I co-host this Release Party with Jessica Lauryn and I am humbled and grateful to them because they are all also published authors whom have become my friends and support me during my starting out career as a full-time author. Thank you! Thank you!

I will be posting another blog post after the Release Party ends. I want to tell you my reactions after the event and also share with you what it feels like to be a part of a Release Party for the second time as an author. It will be posted sometime on Thursday or Friday so that I can have time to write it.

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

Yours Truly,

Diana Rose
