Not ever dreaming a week later she would have over a 100,000 words written. When Emily writes, it is similar to watching a movie. She pictures the characters in her head going through vivid descriptions of each scene. There are so many nuances racing through her mind, she cannot type fast enough. The novels Charmeine, Mactus, Accendo, and Seditious are the continuation of the wonderful adventures of the inhabitants of The Castle Charmeine and available in all book venues. Emily is currently writing Ransom, and Conundrum, the fifth and sixth novels in The Light-Bearer Series.

Attracted to Fine Arts since she was little, Emily danced, studied violin, opera, musical theatre, acting, while being an avid reader. She has her graduate degree as a Master of Business Administration, and works for a Fortune 500 company near New York City.

The Light-Bearer Series is a Contemporary, Young Adult, and Paranormal Romance, with Vampires, Angels, Action, Historical Adventure and original struggles between Good and Evil.

101587531Whereas, we have Charleen who is a Light-Bearer angel.

Guess what?

They fall in love when they meet while Tabbruis saves Charleen from other Blood-Hunters who attacked her.

Yup, you guessed it right!

Well, if you are in my team then this is the ‘IT’ book for you.



5 Star Review of


the 2nd Book in 

The Light-Bearer Series


I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side. Firstly, I would like to thank Emily Guido, author of Mactus, for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this fabulous book.

d6a10d4a_zpsa33c67c2WOW! What a great read.

Charmeine was intriguing, and now Mactus really changed the meaning of intriguing to me.

It was freakishly intriguing and exciting with more dark secrets, power-packed fighting scenes, passionate true love, heart touching family bonding, dangerous enemies craving blood and destruction.

I really fell in love with this book, and you’ll too when you read it.

It’s a total page turner, and I completed it in one sitting!

5476_bigThe story brings back the wondrous magic of Emily Guido and we are taken back to the life of Charleen and Tabbruis where they slowly get glimpses of their long lost love through dreams, and as a special treat, we get to see Shane in love as well.

stuart7The Elder Council and the Blood-Hunters posses threats all over again.

This time, the fight is not only for the couple, but also for their family as well where loyalty, love, affection, dedication are all put through dangerous tests, and love is at stake again!

With unpredictable twists and turns, revelations of hidden secrets, increase in intensity of love we find ourselves to be on an roller coaster where you can’t even imagine what’s going to be served next.

w-sensual-soft-kissing-couples-love-kisses-heartz_largeA thrilling and gripping read for ya all.

I’m sure that you’ll love it as I did!

Great job Emily, you rock!

Now I’m anxious waiting for the next and upcoming installments!


Love, love this song!

I think of Tabbruis and Charmeine…

Lots of love, Emily




The Scarlet Order

I have been following Emily Guido’s blog for some time and I’ve enjoyed the snippets she’s shared from her novels as well as her thoughts about her personal life journey and the writing process. So, I decided it was about time I read the first novel in her Light-Bearer series, Charmeine.


Charmeine opens in heaven, where we learn about two angels who are deeply in love. One is Tabbruis, Angel of Self-Determination. The other is Charmeine, Angel of Harmony. In chapter two, something has happened. Tabbruis and Charmeine have been separated by time and space. Tabbruis wakes up in the land of Canaan and befriends a shepherd boy named Joseph, wearing a colorful coat. When marauders break into the camp, Tabbruis tries to stop them. In the process, he discovers that he’s a fanged creature with a craving for blood. The centuries pass and Tabbruis doesn’t age. Eventually he meets…

Dracula Untold – thoughts and review, Oh My . . .

10616252_307722532746559_1630660148443650798_nOkay, I believe I’m a Paranormal Romance Connoisseur.

Others would say I’m freak about the genre.

However, I choose to believe that we all have little quirks. This is mine.

I love Paranormal Romance!

I religiously read novels, watch movies and TV, and even go to plays of the Paranormal Romance genre.

So, with that little bit of embarrassing fact being divulged, I’m going to share with you my experience from watching the new movie, DRACULA UNTOLD.

Art-Parkinson-Luke-Evans-Dracula-Untold-VladI really loved the premise of this movie. Instead of the regular, run of mill evil Dracula . . . this Dracula had a mammoth cause to conquer.

The relationship he has with his wife and child is loving and downright heartwarming.

dracula-untold-5Yes, and I was brought to welling up as the story developed between the family.

This story of Dracula was not of selfishness or wanton evil, it was about being able to protect your home and loved ones.

Being a hero!

I am always puzzled how villianized the Dracula story is, but this was a truly different take.

Okay, now I’m going to tell you the truth!

The main reason why I loved this movie is because of LUKE EVANS! Oh my . . .

tumblr_inline_n7wwnlD2jK1qfqrsnI mean, there are roles made for actors, and this was made for him.

He excelled at it. Not only being my perfect vision of Dracula, his speech, actions, and mannerisms were spot on how Dracula would be.

There is a character in The Light-Bearer Series, Dmitri, who the Dracul Legend was made from. Yes, I used the plot in my novels, but with a totally different twist.

Luke Evans would be an excellent Dmitri!

I was thinking during the movie, I wonder if he will play this role in my movie version of The Light-Bearer Series? Oh my . . .

Gary Shore, the Director did a fantastic job as the action was fast-paced and gripping.

The cinematography and special effects were unbelievably good! I know a lot of the effects were CGI, but I couldn’t tell it. Some of my favorite movies have cheesy CGI and/or special effects. It really detracts from the story, these did not. I was suckered into believing a million bats can wage war against a hoard.

The music by Ramin Djawdi is driving and compelled the scenes. It added to the artistry. Now, I watched this movie in IMAX with Surround sound. I realize that may have helped intensify the experience, but it was worth the money I laid down to watch it.


For all this and more, I would say if you are a Paranormal fan, RUN, don’t walk to see this movie, DRACULA UNTOLD!

If you are an action and historical fan, you would like this movie also.

For my very, self-admitted addiction, I found this version of Dracula to be one of the best I’ve seen in a very long time!

I’m adding it to the list right with John Badham’s, Dracula, which is my all-time favorite movie!

See this movie before it leaves the theater, the small screen won’t give you the wonderful majesty this movie provides!

The Trailer is below, but it won’t do DRACULA UNTOLD justice. I don’t think any trailer could!

I will give this movie a rating of a 10 plus out of 10!

Lots of love, Emily



Review of SEDITIOUS by Author and Reviewer Wendy Lovetiggi

This review is unsolicited.


will be out in pre-sales soon by PDMI Publishing

I gave it to a reviewer and Author Wendy Lovetiggi

Here it is!

4 Seditious Book Cover1I was given an e-copy of Seditious (The Light Bearer Series #4) by the author, Emily Guido, in exchange for an honest review.

Thank You Emily!!

Where to start?

This installment has a lot of emotions woven through the words, betrayal, love, evil, hurt, faith, trust, and sensuality.

Charmeine and Tabbruis are going through so much as their LOVE for each other is diabolically tested.

12006904_l 1It threw me for a loop to read along as they went through the heartfelt scenes that were depicted so clearly.

The twists and turns kept me up way into the night as I had to know what would happen next.

prawThe characters are awesome, personable, and lovable.

I adore this series.


Because it speaks to the hardcore romantic within me, it leaves the sensual scenes up to the readers imagination, and it so uniquely refreshing.

I recommend this series to all the YA Paranormal Readers out there.

Go Get Ya Some!

The 10 lessons I learned from being an Author . . .

Get-what-you-give-giving-back-picture-quote1. Be KIND . . .

If I am not kind, then I should expect to be treated badly.  It may not be today… but it may be a time when I really need it.

2. Don’t be HAUGHTY . . .

I am the first person to say that I am not the expert in anything.

3. Read other Author’s work without an AGENDA . . .

No one in the world wants to be pre-judged. You have a genre that you feel comfortable with, that’s great. However, branch out and test the waters with other genres without any judgement. You will be happy you did!

book-review-620x3304. Always read a book from COVER to COVER . . .

If you talk to a person, you don’t walk away during mid-sentence – that would be rude. Don’t do that to your fellow Authors!

5. Be good to YOURSELF . . .

You are important, if your brain isn’t rested and happy, then your work will be compromised. Use common sense. Take care of your best resource . . . yourself!

6. Take time for WRITING . . .

Shut out the world and sit down to write. It doesn’t take much time, if you are centered. I use earphones and listen to music. You may find sitting outside on your porch works or getting up in the middle of night? Find your niche.

7. Don’t get trapped into thinking every word that is written has to be PERFECT . . .

Perfection doesn’t exist. I have no doubt that every great Author has to re-write and/or edit. Don’t let your creativity be stifled by perfection.

29a31948. You have to be ENGAGED . . .

You need to educate yourself thoroughly about Social Media, and you can’t be afraid to put yourself and your work out there with WordPress, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc.

9. BREATHE. . .

Rome wasn’t built in day, and neither is a career. You have to work, put in your dues and take your time. Don’t rush yourself. Know that being an Author is hard work. Give yourself time and relax to enjoy life.

10. This is the most important lesson I have learned . . . Karma is a Bitch!

It seems my first rule is like my 10th . . . huh . . . could be something to that, you know?  If you review, write or act like your work is perfect, you are wrong!  No one is perfect, and Karma will turn around bite you in the butt. Maybe it will be a chance of a lifetime that you will miss. All my fortunate circumstances have come from being humble and paying it forward.

Enjoy this song, it’s one that I listen to a lot when I work . . .

It is unbelievably accurate!

Lots of love, Emily
