A Magical Day

What a magical day! I woke up early this morning to watch history in the making. The royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.  The day was filled with love and tradition. The ceremony was rich with royal history. Prince William looked just like prince charming did in all those Disney movies we as little girls loved to watch. Kate was breathtaking. The whole ordeal was a magical experience I hope every romance writer out there watched. This is what dreams are made of. This was truly an inspirational experience. Fairy tales do exist.

Once in a lifetime The Royal Wedding

I know that every romance reader, writer or enthusiast will be watching the Royal Wedding tomorrow. This is history in the making. What could be more romantic then watching a prince marrying his princess. This is what every little girl dreams of. This is the bases of every romance novel out there, the fairy tale. Watching the wedding could also be good research for those of you who are more into writing historical romance. What ever your reasoning, you should witness the true meaning of romance.

Dreams are stories

I highly believe my creativity comes from my dreams. Last night I had a dream about a sexy vampire. Now I know I watch a lot of movies dealing with hot vampires and that may be the reason I had this dream, but I feel it's my duty to write it. So I am going to try my hand at a paranormal romance.  The market is hot so why not try something new, it's hot in my mind so let's get it down on paper. 

Let your dreams be your writing guide. Keep a journal by your bedside. You never know what inspiration might pop up in your dreams.

Perfect time to be a writer

After a long hot and steamy night (A/C not working ;) ). I rolled over and tried to focus my tired eyes at the clock radio blinking on my night stand; 5:30am. I impatiently slammed my hand on the snooze button. How can something so small make such an annoying sound I thought to myself. I layed there in my bed dreading the thought of having to start my day. I reached over to the nightstand seaching for the TV remote. I rolled over to my side and turned on the TV. I flipped to the news hoping to catch a glimps of the weather for the day. As I sat up I listened to the first news story for the day. I rolled my eyes as the news ancher told me that gas prices rose another 10cents over night.  I sighed at the thought of paying $4.00 a gallon. The next story the anchor man read was about how food prices were going up.  By this point I felt totally disgusted. How are we suppose to survice if the cost of living goes up but pay does not. I tried to tune out the news as I got ready for my day. As I slipped on my shoes I turned up to see the news again. There was no ignoring the next news story. The government shutting down because they couldn't come to an agreement on a budget. As I reached for the remote to turn off the news I sat and thought to myself. With so much drama and negativity in the world I'm lucky to be a writer. A writer can change the lives of many by our timeless stories. We as writers can help everyday people escape the world that traps them. We have a gift as writers, I am glade that I get to share mine with you. Hopefully I can do for others what many writers have done for me; create and escape.

Amazing Saturday @ Dreaming In Dallas

Dreaming in Dallas was truly that a dream. A dream that I didn't want to end. The conference mentally simulated me like I have never been before. It was electrifying To be in the presence of some much talent I was awestruck.  The highlight for me of course was meeting 4 amazing women. New York Times Bestseller Allison Brennan, New York Times & USA Today Bestselling author Richelle Mead, Lucienne Diver author of Vamped and Allison Lyons editor for Harlequin Intrigue.                         

With shaking hands and a few stumbled words I got to deliver my pitch to Allison Lyons with Harlequin. She was very sweet and understanding about my nerves which I REALLY appreciated. With 90k Love and Honor was too long for the Intrigue line, She said that my book is more for the Harlequin Mira line. She gave me contact info for Leonore Waldrip, and asked me to send her 3 chapters and my synopsis. She said she would let Leonore know I'm contacting her and to take a look at my work. I am really siked about this.Mira has published....get this...SANDRA BROWN AND HEATHER GRAHAM!!!  I will be submitting Love and Honor this week to Leonore. Please keep up the good vibes everyong has been sending my way. I appricate everyone who has read and critiqued my work. You are my fans as I am yours.

Exciting Times

I have had an unbelievable week and it's just the beginning. The past week I've been inspired with so much creative energy. Once I shed the fear of letting the world see what's truly inside of me, it was like a cloud lifted off of me. My eyes are open, my mind free, my heart soaring. I do not know why I was so scared to show the world and it really doesn’t matter anymore. Tomorrow is the start of something new. Tomorrow is the book signing of Dreaming in Dallas. For those of you, who know me; know that I've had a long journey to get to this point in my life. I have volunteered myself to help out the authors who are signing. I'm hoping to meet some great people and make new acquaintances. I love meeting creative people. Creative people inspire me to write and sometimes become my inspiration.

Saturday is the true conference. I will attend many different workshops that will help me on my writing career journey. I will post what I've learned to share with you. The best thing about Saturday will be my meeting with Allison Lyons~EDITOR~Harlequin Intrigue. I am excited and nervous at the same time. Butterflies flutter in the pit of my stomach just thinking about it.

I will keep everyone up to date on the conference and my meeting with Allison Lyons. Wish me luck!!!

Fear is only in your mind....Fear is not real

That statement hit me hard like a rock at my DARA meeting Saturday. We chanted "I'm a great writer, I fear nothing." I  cried when I chanted this. I realized I have been procrastinating with my newest project 2012 : Love unexpected. I've also stalled out on  Love and Honor, by not sending it out in the world.  I am scared. Scared of being a disapointment scared of being a failure. But most of all I'm scared of people seeing the real me.  When I write I'm showing the world my heart and soul. If I fail does this mean that I fail myself?

NO it does not! You only fail if you do not try. That was my epiphany over this weekend. The only thing holding me back is myself. Fear is not real!

Do not let fear take control of your life.

This will be a night to remember. I hope to see you all there!

Let's escape

The best thing about writing is the escape I can create from my everyday world. When you read a good romance novel you are drawn into the writers dream world. How lucky am I to be able to explore my own dream world. I love writing scenes where my two lover meet for the first time. How many times have you seen a person that you found yourself attracted to (ie: movie star, co-worker, a guy at the bar you went to last night ;) ). Do you imagined to yourself what you would say to this person to let them know you are interested, the person's reaction, how they would kiss you etc. When you write you can create that world. A private passion between you and that piece of paper.  That's the world of a writer. It's fantasy spilled onto paper. It's a true passion of mine.

Opening for 2012: Love Unexpected

I wanted to share a little snipit of my current work project. I hope you enjoy it.

The sounds of screaming rang in Jessica’s ears as she tried to run down the darken hallway of the office building.  She had to find a way out of the collapsing building before it came crashing down on top of her. She would have to somehow make it to the stairway if it wasn’t already caved in. The florescent office lights flickered above her head making her disoriented. She tripped over a computer monitor that fallen on the floor. She screamed out in pain as she felt something sharp gashing her left leg. Reacting she leaned forward to touch her open wound. She could feel blood gushing out of her leg; she tried to put pressure on her leg when she felt herself falling forward. A rush of people whizzed by Jessica like a herd of animals in a stampede. Jessica felt herself falling fast towards the cold linoleum floor.  “I’ve got you Jess, c’mon we’ve got to get the hell out of here!” a male voice shouted out towards her catching Jessica by the waist. The man quickly pulled her behind him towards the end of the hall

  NOTE: This is still a work in progress :)

With V-day just around the corner, the air is full of inspiration. Whether or not your in a relationship it doesn't make a difference. You can feel it in the air. I find inspiration all around me this time of year.  I know I've talked to you guys about inspiration on more then one occasion, but this is the key to writing a great love story. It's also something that can be easily lost.  Keep your eyes and ears open and you will find it.

Keep your heart open and the words will come to you!

A New Year Wish

2011 will be a wonderful year! I am driven to get my publishing career started this year. I plan on getting my ticket this month for the Dreaming in Dallas conference in April. I plan on breaking out of my shyness and speak to fellow writers and people in the publishing world. I know there are a lot of wonderful workshops that will also help me with tips and tricks that I can pass along to you my fans.

My goal this year is to get Love and Honor published and to finish 2012: Love unexpected.  With this being 2011 I have found mountains of data and stories in my research that I can use for the new book. I can't wait to get this year started off with a bang!

Thank you everyone for sticking by me through the hard times of 2010. This year will be prosperous!
