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.

THREE DAYS UNTIL Book 1: Forbidden Love is Rereleased

My Dear Readers,

We are getting so close to the rerelease of Book 1: Forbidden Love. Three days until the rerelease of Book 1: Forbidden Love. Oh my goodness! I can’t believe it is actually going to happen.

Years ago this was a great idea that I had and now I’m eagerly awaiting the rerelease date. October 15 is going to be a busy day for me. But for the first time in three years since my grandfather died, this day, his birthday will be a happy day. This will be a gift to him and me. I’m just glad that I can rerelease my book on this day. It almost seems like he will be there with me even though he is gone.

Three days…….Are you excited yet? I really hope so because I have been waiting for this book for a long time. I know you have been waiting patiently for it too. But in three more days, the wait will be over. And everyone will be able to read the book. Isn’t that exciting? I am doing this all on my own time. I have people who love and support me.

“Don’t worry….this is just the beginning! There will be plenty more books coming. That’s my promise to you. ” – Diana Rose

I am planning more after this so, yes, it might take me some time to make write because let’s face it writing is hard but there will be more  books coming. Let me just say this:

“Get ready because Diana Rose will be publishing many books. My name will be in lights.” – Diana Rose

Anyway, three days until the rerelease of Book 1: Forbidden Love. Get ready. Amy and Darien are coming and you will want to know all about them and their family. There’s more to the story than you know.

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

Yours truly,

FOUR DAYS UNTIL Book 1: Forbidden Love is Rereleased

My Dear Readers,

Four days. FOUR DAYS….. I can’t wait to share this book with you. In only four days, I will be rereleasing Book 1: Forbidden Love on Amazon.

Wow, I’m totally amazed. This book started with me wanting to tell the world about my grandparents’s love. At thirteen years old, I was amazed by the way they cared about each other.  I wanted other people to know about this. So, I created the story of Amy and Darien. For me, this story is always going to be special because of my grandparents.

This story has a lot of things that I took from old stories they told me but in fact it is about two people who really love each other. Yes, love. Love is something that I have seen in their home and I grew up believing that a love like my grandparents shared is the definition of true love. I believe that this story is the beginning of something wonderful. Perhaps, even one day, it might help someone.

In four years, you can all read this book for yourselves. I know, it’s my first book but I am in love with my two main characters. Especially with Darien. He resembles the kind of person who I would want to spend my life with. No, I’m not kidding. Darien is really the best hero in a book. Trust me, this is only the beginning, I will have more of him and Amy in my next few books (subtle hint at the series).

Anyway, yes I am still writing Book 3: Undying Love but it is slow.  I really just want to rerelease Book 1: Forbidden Love because it’s been a long time and a very long wait. I just really hope that you like it.

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 🌧🌧☂️☂️☔☔🌧🌧🌧🌧 I ran home to get dry. That’s New York weather for you…one minute it’s sunny and 86°F 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.

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,

Happy Valentine’s Day

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-valentines-day-flowers-heart-graphic

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,

 Diana Rose
