FEATURING…Tharah Meester!

I would like to introduce Tharah Meester, an up and coming romance author that has a wonderful outlook on life and love.  She is from Austria and is genuine, honest, and focusing on ALL types of love and romance. She is currently running a Kickstarter fund to translate her novels into English for us all to enjoy. Please check her out below and also if you get a chance, click on her Kickstarter link to see her video and show her some support. For the German Amazon links, just click the picture.

Following a public humiliation, Hyacinth Black is on the verge of being beaten to death by his father. Of all people, the man who is commonly referred to as ‘Your Hideousness’ comes to his defense; but his intervention has a price. Hyacinth must marry his rescuer.

Since the murder of his brother, Gavrila Ardenovic has been on the trail of a secret society, but in the city where he is only mocked, he has few allies. Therefore he keeps his distance from others and is used to suppressing any hint of emotion.


Will lies and intrigues gain the upper hand or can Hyacinth succeed in battling the shadows of the past and break through his husband’s cold-hearted façade?

Do you devour books? I mean love to read?

REVIEWERS WANTED!  Looking for some passionate book lovers willing to soak up magical dimensions and live to tell of their journeys.

Wanna take a magical ride and follow the yellow brick road?

I am currently being flooded with book review requests and can’t possibly oblige all them all in a timely manner by myself.

Basically…I NEED HELP!  Reading is my number ONE passion with writing riding my tail in a close second.

Being a self-published author, I am well acquainted with the struggles and importance of reviews, I want to help other authors!

So, I am looking for a few that would want to read some amazing stories, discover new authors, all in exchange for an honest review to be posted on paranormalromancewritings.com, Amazon, and Goodreads.

Interested?  Drop me an email!

 

 

 

Anticipation and Excitement!

I love the feeling in the pit of your stomach that flutters like little butterflies when you are looking forward to something new.  Quality time and family are always the most important things in life, or they should be anyway, but sometimes we all get caught up in our daily routines and before long our careers or jobs become the highest priority.

I hate that.  Life is too short.  We should enjoy life.  Savor our experiences and bask in the things that make us happy.  Time with family and friends.  Laughing and enjoying each other’s company should be the most important goal and our highest priority.

I realized as I have gotten older that I absolutely hate the daily routines and desire nothing more than to have fun and enjoy life. I want to savor the good times spent with close friends just riding on the Blue Ridge Parkway exploring new things and newly discovered attractions.  The jokes and laughing on the way to those new explorations and the beauty found in nature.  Creating memories of happy times.

I want to spend more time with family even if it’s just conversation over a cup of coffee or dinner and spend more time with the things that I am passionate about such as writing and reading.

My new goal is to do just that.  Participate in the activities that I want to do and experiment.  Going to break out of the daily routines and schedules that please others, but be spontaneous for myself.

Don’t get me wrong, there will still be responsibilities and those will still be done as it is necessary to survive but from now on I will strive to do things that make me happy and I will not have any regrets or worry if it will upset someone else.

Regrets, worry, and stress are something I will avoid at all cost.  I have to for my sanity.

Life, family, love, friends, laughter, and happiness!  That is what we should be about.

Life is too short not to!

My rant!!!

Something has been bugging me and irritating me and I just got to get it off my chest.  I hope you don’t mind.  Anyways, as a writer (published) I sent 3 of my books to a dear friend of mine.  I signed all the books because that friend had wanted me too.  I obliged because it made me feel giddy and excited.  

Well that friend received my books and they were so excited they took a picture and posted them on a facebook group that we both belong too!  I was so honored and thrilled.

Someone in the group immediately started bashing and saying they hoped the author signed it and was such a horrible thing to receive books from author without them being signed and how if that is the case then the author doesn’t really appreciate the reader or care.

HERE IS MY RANT: 

First of all, why would you immediately start jumping into something that would stir up negative attitudes and vibes? 

Second, the person was receiving the books is a personal friend and even stated so in the post.  The friend never said anything that was hateful or leading to any kind of rant, just complete excitement.

Third,  even IF I DID NOT sign the books, it does mean that the person is not appreciated because, I paid for those books out of my own pocket.  I wanted my dear friend to have a copy of my work so I paid to have the paperbacks printed for my friend.

Am I missing something? Doesn’t that show my appreciation?

I believe there are alot of people out there, that are not aware of all the hardwork indie/self writers/authors put forth into their art.  We are not one of those authors that are lucky enough to receive a publishing/agent contract, we are not making millions of dollars, if we are lucky enough to receive a couple paperback copies at no cost – the rest we have to pay for ( at a discount of course).

Writing is not my money-maker, it is my passion.  I do it for myself and feel blessed when someone wants to buy and read what I bled out on paper.

Or maybe there are some people out there that just want to stir the big black cauldron…well, not maybe, for sure!

Ok, I feel so much better now.  Those pot stirrers will not get me down and destroy my happiness or my friendships!  

So on a positive note…I believe that instead of arguing, saying something back with people like this and giving them fuel for their fire, I should turn this around to something positive!!!!

So I am debating on offering that person an ebook or paperback.  What are your thoughts?  Or should I just ignore it all together and move on???

I would love to hear your opinions.

Monday, 9/15/2014

Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful Monday.  I believe the sun peeked out a couple of times, but for the most part it was cloudy and threatened to give us a shower.

My first day back at work wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be.  After a week off I was dreading going in and facing a slammed busy Monday but the day was great and I was not overwhelmed.

As good as it was today, I still wish I didn’t have to go at all.  To be able to stay home and write full time is my dream and passion.  Sighs.  Maybe one day.

I am writing this entry today, but do not plan to work on my WIP tonight… Too tired!  Sleep was not all that great last night.  When will I learn not to drink sweet tea after 7:30pm.  Always keeps me awake, even if I take a sleeping pill.

On the writing note, I did get a good portion of writing done yesterday and I am so thrilled about it.

Well, it’s time to turn over and catch some ZZZ’s.  Hope you everyone had a great Monday!  One day closer to the weekend.
