front-coverThe explosive seventh installment in the Amaranthine series brings blood, ruin, despair, and hope, for even in the darkest night there is still a moon.

After the battle in Indonesia. Katelina wakes in Samael’s domain. Though her memories are tattered, she knows someone is missing: Jorick.

Her vampire lover gathers an army to save her from the ancient, but his master Malick interferes. For five hundred years Malick has manipulated and ruined Jorick’s life. When he leaves Katelina broken and bleeding in the bowels of his oasis, it’s the final straw.

While Malick sets up his glorious war with a living legend, Jorick plans the ultimate taboo: to kill his master. He’s tried before and failed. Will this be different, or will he and Katelina be crushed in the carnage of a greater battle, between two whose blood goes back millennia?

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…

I 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…
