Excerpt #2 from Book 1: Forbidden Love

My Dear Readers,

Today is Saturday and I promised you an excerpt from Book 1: Forbidden Love.  I hope you enjoy it.

Excerpt from Book 1: Forbidden Love by Diana Rose

Copyright 2018 by Diana Rose

As he helped Amy fold her clothes into her chest, Darien sat up straight on her bed, remembering that he had brought her a gift. He put his hand into his suit jacket. “I want to give you something special,” he said as he took out a small, but beautiful box.

    “Oh, Darien, you shouldn’t have. All I want is you,” Amy exclaimed, as she carefully took the box so as to not drop it.

    “Please accept this gift. Open it when you arrive at your new home.”

    “Of course. I promise you.” Amy leaned against Darien and smiled at him. She felt, somewhere deep in her heart, that this was not the last time she would see Darien.

Her bags were packed and ready to go. Darien had said his farewell and left without a sound through her window. In case her parents were home, Darien did not want to get yelled at for coming to see Amy. The window was his only way out. When he left and Amy was sure no one had seen him, she took the box that contained Darien’s gift and placed it inside her handbag along with her hair accessories.

A few hours later, Amy stood by her carriage and said goodbye to her family. She was leaving to an unknown world. She did not know what to expect from the other castle that was so far from her family–and especially Darien. We could’ve been so happy together. I miss him already. Oh how he used to hold me! And those eyes, I’ll never forget those eyes. How could my mother do this to me? Does she not have a heart? What is Darien is my soulmate? Would she be able to live with herself knowing that she is tried separating two people that are meant to be together? Amy’s thoughts jumbled around in her head, making her unable to focus on anything else. All she wanted was to turn back and see Darien again. As she sat in the carriage, Amy sadly realized that with every hoof beat she was being driven farther away from her true love.

FIVE DAYS UNTIL Book 1: Forbidden Love is Rereleased

My Dear Readers,

Can you believe it? There are only Five Days left until Book 1: Forbidden Love is rereleased….

To me, it still feels like a dream. A dream that I have been having for many years. Some days I still feel like I am dreaming. But I am finally going to see this dream come true.  I have worked so hard to make it happen. Now, there are only a handful of days left. Wow!

It was such a long road and yet, I came out on top. I believe that the fact that set me apart from the rest of the people my age is my determination not to give up. Yes, it was hard but I knew I had to keep writing and keep looking for a way out. I finally came to the conclusion that if I do it myself, no one will do it for me.

So, these beautiful five days are a reminder of how far I have come. Yes, from a dream and a simple writer,  I have learned about marketing, promoting, publishing and writing. I have learned to not give up but instead, keep going. I believe that I have learned about marketing in a whole new way thanks to Vistaprint who have shown me that creativity and being an author really do go together. I now have different things that I can give out to my readers.

Now if only I can manage not to freak out until the rerelease yet again, that will be great. But I am not making any promises. We will see what happens. It’s five days until the rerelease so, yes I am stressed out. I wish it was easy but so far,  nothing has been easy for me from the start. Not that I expected it to be easy, just a little more uncomplicated than the rest of my life. But that’s not happening so… I will just have to go through this one day at a time.

Who is excited for October 15th?

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

Yours truly,

Diana Rose

My Dear Readers,

I apologize for not posting here but I’m still working. I’m writing Book 3 but mostly I am working on getting my book, Book 1: Forbidden Love back up on Amazon. In the process of doing that, I have made a decision that I hope will be better for my writing career.

But I assure you that I intend on getting my book, Book 1: Forbidden Love rereleased this year. I will tell you everything when I can get some rest and get all the paperwork out of the way. But, please know that I am also working on new teasers, new branding (such as a new cover for my Author Page), and will be working on a new book cover for my book soon. FUN STUFF 🎊

Hopefully by the end of the week I will be able to share my new things with you. Also I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Karen D. Neal, Isadora Sunday, Jessica Lauryn, Jessica Wayne, Mikel Wilson, Keith Kareem Williams and Rita Lewis as well as Terrelle Shelton for all your support during this time when I need friends to help me, these are the best friends I can always count on to help me with encouragement and understanding and hugs. I am brave enough to do this because of you my dear Author friends.

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  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,

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.

📚📚📚📚📚📚📚UPDATES:📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚

♡ 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.

♡I am writing Book 3 and on Chapter Two. So, it’s still in progress.

♡Just 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,

Diana Rose
