Young Adult, Paranormal Romance

GIVEAWAY

Love, Prejudice, Regrets, Birthdays, THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES and Thanks…

Let’s start with the LOVE…

6-1I love my husband. Yes, I know that’s cliché. And also, I really think my hubby is cute in a “Guido-Geeky” way.

My husband is not perfect. I based a lot of Tabbruis, my hero in THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES, after my husband. In my books, Tabbruis is not comfortable in social situations, and neither is my 150+ I.Q. MENSA husband.

However, Tabbruis loves Charmeine and his family so much, he would do anything to make them happy and protected. To be even more of a believable hero, at times Tabbruis lacks the art of finesse with his wife. He makes mistakes. What one of us can say that we don’t? We all go ‘off the reservation’ once in while.

Dealing with PREJUDICE

Ever since I was a toddler, I was taught no one is better than me, and I am no better than anyone else.

glassceilingI have dealt with prejudice on many levels… feeling it, seeing it, and fighting against it.

I had hopes that once I got my MBA, which I worked very hard for, I would get a better job… NOT! I found out the GLASS CEILING above my head has be to broken before I can even get a chance to put my MBA to use. It appears some corporate mentalities don’t want to give educated women a chance. That’s not guff, it’s the ‘Unspoken Prejudice’ of the corporate world. I am struggling to have one corporate executive see my potential and prove myself worthy in the Fortune 500 world.

A lot of REGRETS…

2813_imageI have so many regrets that the light from the ‘Planet Regrets’ can’t reach me.

Who of us don’t?

However, here’s where my hope and love will pull me through. If I pay Student Loans until I am 100 years old, and they give me a bill while I am going to the mortuary, I can’t regret my MBA Education. I am the first in my family to have a Graduate Degree, and that means something. I guess I will be buried with my degree in my casket tucked under my satin pillow.

Now onto dreaded BIRTHDAYS…

Argh! Birthdays suck. It’s mine March 2nd, and I am not at all happy about it…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI don’t feel my age

I don’t relate to my age

I can’t even tell you how I hate being labeled with the damaging prejudice of AGEISM. Especially now that I am trying to break the corporate GLASS CEILING mentality. Birthdays are the minefield of the struggling people of the corporate world.

THANKS and generosity of love…

I am so very thankful for my family, the Esparzas and Guidos. My mother and family taught me wonderful lessons in hospitality, hard work, and ethics, and I am ever thankful.

tumblr_m79qq0bPh81rziwwco1_500I am thankful to my PDMI Publishing family including TC and Nessa and all talented people there for taking such a chance on me and THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES.

I poured my heart out in THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES… the Tabbruis and Charmeine Hunter family made of Vampires and Angels fighting evil is now a part of my family. I am jubilant that I get to share my heart with the world – literally. I have fans all over the globe now because PDMI took a chance on me.

Last but never forgotten, I am thankful of YOU - My WordPress Blogging Family…

Imagine that you are a character in a story.

You have a home.

You have a life.

You have it all.

Then suddenly you wake up alone and afraid in a cold, dark place.  

Somehow you find your courage and your voice. When you ask for help, words light up on a wall in the darkness.

You read them and realize you are in the creative center of your author’s mind.

Instead of rescuing you, the author asks you for help.

This book is about the journey of that character, as he moves from story to story desperately trying to find his home.

Snippet from AWOL

“My name is Anthony, and I am the author who made you. I don’t know your name for now. I’m hoping you will find it along the way.” I paused. “You’ve stumbled out of your story, and you are back at the spot where I first created you. The problem is, I don’t know what story you came from.”

The character – five eight to five nine in height – read the words on the wall, and his heart sank

“You stumbled out sometime last night, and I found you when I went in to search my brain for something to write about.”

The character read the words silently.

“I do know that you are a runner. You are educated and smart, and have been around the world at least once. You are also 40 years old.”

I thought of a mirror, and it appeared on the wall. The character moved the lamp to shine the light up and down his body as he looked into the mirror. It was true. The author was right. He was in great physical shape. He also noticed he had dark hair, unkempt, with streaks of gray. The hair hung down to his shoulder blades, and a dark goatee surrounded his mouth.
