SEVEN DAYS UNTIL Book 1: Forbidden Love is Rereleased

My Dear Readers,

Oh my goodness….SEVEN DAYS! I can’t believe it is SEVEN DAYS until Prince Darien and Princess Amy return to Amazon. It’s so exciting! I’m trying to get everything settled and done for the rerelease.

This is going to be my first time publishing as a self published author (pretty sure I already said that) but it is a huge accomplishment for me. I’m still scared to be honest with you but I’m so excited that I can get through this all by myself. I just hope that it will be great.  This book means so much to me. You don’t know how much hard work and sleepless nights were spent dreaming about how I would finally get this book published again…

Like everything in life, life gave me a second chance at doing this my way and I am doing it my way. I just hope that when next week comes, you will support me because this time my book will stay published. October 15, 2018 is coming fast and I am really ready to do everything I can to make this book a success.

I promise, this book will be better than ever before. Are you excited about this rerelease as much as I am?

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

Yours truly,

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,

Diana Rose

The Royal Court: The Duties of the King in Court

My Dear Future Readers:

Today I am starting a series entitled The Royal Court in this series of articles I will explain what every member of the Royal Court does. In this series, there will be a description of everything that the position entitles.

This series will start with the Head of the Royal Court: The King.

The King is the most important person on the Royal Court. He makes every decision for the good of his people. In talking about the King in any kingdom, I must say that he is very influential and despite having the last word about all pressing issues. Resolving issues with the peasants are taken care of by the King. In regard to peasants the King only takes care of really urgent matters.

The King also makes rulings about criminals as well. As ruler of a Kingdom would do, a King had to fair and just in his rulings for the people to respond accordingly.

The King Also held responsibility for the land that he gave to people. He gave land out  to the noble people and other people as well.

A King ruled large areas of land and country. To protect his land from invasion, the King gave parts of it to the local Lords, who were called Vassals. In return his vassals promised to fight to defend the King’s land.

The King also granted land to the less powerful military men the Knights who were called Vassals.

In my book, Book 1: Forbidden Love, Kings play an important role. King Gabriel who is King of the Moon Kingdom is a very indecisive man. He listens more to his wife.

While the King of the Earth Kingdom, King Ryan is a very softhearted but decisive person. He rules his kingdom with ready confidence in his decisions.

I truly hope that you will look forward to the continuation of The Royal Court Series of Blog Posts. I promise that this will be an interesting series.

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

Yours Truly,

Diana Rose
