Thank You Edward R. Murrow High School for the Wonderful Day

My Dear Readers!!!

I SOLD OUT OF BOOKS TODAY at Edward R. Murrow High School !!! Oh my goodness, every one wanted one. I left one in the Principal’s office for him. He was not there. I spoke to all my old teachers.

Sadly no pictures but that’s because of time. It was the end of the day.

But I SOLD OUT and signed copies!! I’m definitely going back there in September or October. It’s such a great experience. I might even have an official book signing there.

All of the teachers and workers there were extremely impressed with my book and that I actually did it. They all said they would read their copies over summer vacation.

You know, I always have a warm welcome there but for some reason, today was extra special.  It’s so great to know that the people there still love me and still care. I even answered a few questions that made me think. Elaine, the physical therapist always found ways to challenge me and make me think differently and I am extremely grateful to her for that.

Now, I really have a lot to think about in terms of my writing, my genre. Maybe, I might even try a new romance genre. I don’t know yet but I’ll think about it. I do need to finish this series first but I have time to gather my ideas.

I just want to say a big thank you to Elaine, Jennifer Gertz (occupational therapist), Sevita Berlin (paraprofessional), Lillain Baer-Sharoff, Allen Barge (Principal), and everyone else who bought my book today, gave me such a warm welcome and I do hope you enjoy my book. I do hope to come back in September or October to see all of you soon.

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

Yours Truly,

COVER REVEAL for Collateral Damage by Jessica Wayne

My Dear Readers,

I am so happy to introduce you to my friend, Jessica Wayne​​ who is about to publish another book called Collaeral Damage. This book came out of her book A Tethered Duet. Like it is for most authors including me, sometimes secondary characters get their own books. This is what happened with Jessica Wayne​​’s new book.

I just want to say that I am infinitely grateful for this chance to do another COVER REVEAL for her. Ms. Wayne is a fantastic author. I quickly became a big fan of her books as soon as I read A Tethered Duet. To have this opportunity today means so much to me.

This woman has taught me so much about being an author and about writing.  You can’t imagine how grateful I am to her. The fact that I will be doing my first book signing is because I am following her example. Sometimes,  good examples teach new authors like me a lot. I am sure you will enjoy reading her new book.

Preorder!

Collateral Damage PRINT.001

Synopsis:
After a spell left him frozen in time, Timothy McGinley swore off all things magic and accepted that he was destined to walk the earth forever. But when a witch saves his life, he discovers he is facing his own mortality for the first time in two centuries.

Paislee Adams was stolen from everything she knew because she possessed what one man craved: power. After she escapes, she dedicates her life to honing her magic in an effort to destroy the man who owned her for so much of her life.

Fate brings these two together and as they race against the clock to stop the man who has a deadly obsession with them both, Timothy and Paislee are both forced to face the demons of their past in an effort to secure a future they weren’t sure they deserved.

Getting Ready for my FIRST Book Signing

My Dear Readers,

I know, I know I am bad. I haven’t updated this blog in A VERY LONG TIME. I know that you are probably wondering, “What in the world is going on with Diana Rose? Is she okay?” The answer to that is, yes, I’m okay. But the first question has a much bigger answer.

So, you remember that I promised you “Swag” in my post, Lesson # 21: Creating “Swag” Or Things To Give Away ? And I have not come through on that yet. Well, after a lot of time, I finally did. We have FLYERS now!!! Small ones but still they are here. I finally figured out that website VistaPrint.

I ordered 50 flyers and they came yesterday (June 9th) and they are GORGEOUS!! 20180609_151857

Flyers for Book 1: Forbidden Love

I’m taking these and the books I still have in my house to my High School (Edward R. Murrow High School) this week on Tuesday, June 12th. I am so excited to go. I have been thinking about it for weeks now. I can’t imagine what it will be like to finally do a Book Signing. A book signing….me….I have been dreaming of doing a book signing since I started writing.

Can you believe that this will be my FIRST EVER book signing? All those teachers who knew me as the shy girl will probably be lining up to get my book. It’s amazing how far I have come through my journey with my book. I am so excited about it. If someone would have told me that I would be going to my High School as an author and signing books a few years back, I would probably look at them like they were crazy. But I am actually doing it and I feel proud that I actually can do it. That I achieved my dream!!

Trust me, this is not the end of my dream. I have so much more I want to do with my writing career. But for now, I want to get through Tuesday, June 12th because doing my first book signing is something that I never did before and I want to do it right. Besides, I have a lot of preparation to do like, getting my hair done and making sure I have enough books.

I will tell you all about it after I get back. Maybe even have pictures.

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

Happy Mother’s Day

My Dear Readers,

🌼🌼🌼🌼HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!🌼🌼🌼🌼

I want to say thank you to my mom for everything that she does. I know that she has done so much, making sure I get a good education, that I learn to live on my own though it’s scary sometimes, making sure I am healthy, happy. She has been there when I’m happy, when I’m sad, when I’m angry…always trying to help. We laugh, we cry together but most of all we talk about everything. We will celebrate soon.

I hope all mothers feel special today and everyday.

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