Rewrites: Eric, The Prince of the Moon Kingdom

My Dear Future Readers,

I’m still here doing edits for Book 1: Forbidden Love.

I  finally got to the chapters about Amy’s younger brother.  These are the fun chapters because he goes on adventures. He gets to travel which to be honest is a lot of fun to write.  I don’t travel much which is why I wanted to let my characters do a little exploring.

Now, that I have to rewrite Eric’s parts in the book,  I only hope that I have been able to make his chapters more fun. Yes, Eric finds love too. Don’t worry.  I did not leave him without a lovely lady.  But the best part of rewriting a story where the little brother of my main character gets to live his life,  is that I can see and show that even he has a life.

Rewrites of Eric’s Travels 

Eric’s traveling adventures were parts of the story where I could really use my imagination.  Why? Because,  he could travel anywhere and meet all kinds of people and creatures. Sometimes I just need to be creative.  You know what….. I think my creativity in these parts paid off.

Here is what my editor had to say about Eric’s story.

“I like the progression of Eric’s storyline.”  -Alyssa Nand

I think that if my editor likes it,  then it will be interesting to my future readers.  I always believed that if I could make at least one person fall in love with my story and that person being my editor then I already did a good job as an author.

Rewrites of Eric’s Love Story 

I think that rewriting the scenes with Princess Sapphira made the chapters romantic and sweet.  I really hope that you will like the rewrites. Eric’s story seems to be better with all of the work that I did. I think his story fits in with the rest of the book because it shows how his own love story played out.

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

Yours Truly,

Henry: The Lost Prince of Sunset Valley Kingdom

My Dear Future Readers,

Since we began talking about rewrites in my previous two posts,  I would like to continue this conversation.  I have another character that required a few small rewrites.

So,  this character is Darien’s best friend and I love both of them because in a way they are both similar.

How are they similar?

Henry and Darien are similar in their eagerness to save others. They are both only children in their families.  And the most obvious of all is that they are both royalty.

Henry was royalty himself and his kingdom was attacked by Pond Water Prince  (who you met in my previous two posts).  Ever since then, his life was not the same.  He had to serve the evil doer for five years.

Henry’s Rewrites:

I  believe that Henry’s rewrites were the easiest I ever did.  It was fun to see my “lost prince” grow.  Even in the simplest things like the way his appearance was described. In fact,  his appearance was the most fun to rewrite.

Why?

Because aside from the idea that Henry was  under a spell,  he was actually really handsome.  I was actually kind of hoping you return him to his human self so that he would be handsome again.

The next important rewrite that happened for Henry was his conversation with his best friend, Darien.  I’m sure that you will see the changes and appreciate them.

I put a lot of time into the rewrites I make because I want my future readers to like my book.  I feel that the rewrites not only help my book, Book 1: Forbidden Love develop but they also help me mature as an author.

I feel that my ideas begin to change in a good way. The way my sentences are written and my descriptions are expressed is very differently than when I was writing this book in the first time.  I’m proud of  my work.  I am excited when my edits turn out better than the original.  My characters seem to be maturing with me which is a good thing.  Even my editor is saying that my writing is improving.

I even see improvement with Darien’s character as,I correct Henry and Pond Water Prince’s characters.  It is all connected in one and I’m glad that I’m doing these rewrites.  I’m actually learning more than I thought with my edits.

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.

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,

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
