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

The Light-Bearer Series: Book Review by Mari Wells
 
Emily Guido has a series of Blood Hunters, because they drink blood, I’m going to review the three books I’ve read.

The Light-Bearer Series has a delightful array of angels and blood hunters.I really enjoyed the first three books in the series. I devoured (ha ha pun intended) them in 4 days.

The three novels I read tell us about some very damaged men, life sucks ( ha ha this pun was intended too) and these men know it. Most have lost their soul mates.

20130218-225718-1In Charmeine (book 1), we meet Tabbruis a wealthy man with an appetite for blood. We follow the story as he meets Charleen a teacher who feels like something is missing from her life.

Both meet at a Billy Joel concert. Neither wants to admit that the other causes them to feel feelings that they haven’t felt before. At the end of Charmeine they’re together.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Charmeine and Tabbruis 1In Mactus (book 2), gives us Charmeine and Tabbruis together, loving each other and learning about each other’s past.

OMG! They were married thousands of years ago in heaven! I’m not saying anymore about that, if you want to know you’ll have to read it.

We’re also introduced to the other men in the castle.

How I said, these guys know just how much life can suck.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

gothicwallpaper1-11In Accendo (book 2), war is about to break out between the blood-hunters and a very old blood-hunter council. Charmeine and Tabbruis are married, this pisses off the council even more.

Why?

Because Charmeine is a Light-Bearer, basically she’s an angel. There’s a lot of fighting between newly weds.

There are some massive surprises in this novel.

I can’t wait to read the rest of this series, I really enjoyed it.

A Purplerose Blog review of “CHARMEINE”

 

 

1 CharmeineA bright angel: “Charmeine” by Emily Guido

You can tell this author is romantic at heart, you can see it in her writing.

Tabbruis

Tabbruis

Tabbruis is a 8,000 year old Blood Hunter, at first he fed on humans, then something in him changed and he stopped feeding on humans, started feeding on animals.

victor

Dimitri Blood-Hunter Brother of Tabbruis

He thought he was the only one of his kind, then he met Dimitri, he was the same as Tabbruis, didn’t feed on humans. Their kind are suppose to feed on humans, most of their kind do.

The Elder counsel would have them die in front of their kind if they found out they don’t feed on humans. Dimitri explained to Tabbruis that there are other entities out there called Light Bearers. They are enemies, they kill each other, they hunt each other down.

Tabbruis stayed with Dimitri for awhile and learned things from him, they became as close as brothers. Dimitri told Tab he lost his family because of the Elder counsel, he can’t wait to get even with them. Tabbruis has never been in love, but he vows to help when the time comes.

rain-uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuSomething is pulling him to NYC, so he leaves and goes there, he can’t help himself, he’s being drawn there.

He meets Charmeine there, is she the reason he was drawn there?

Tabbruis and Charmeine ~Can they be together?~

Tabbruis and Charmeine
~Can they be together?~

He goes to a concert and feels there’s a Blood Hunter stalking a human, Charmeine is the one the blood Hunter is stalking.

I really can’t say anymore, you’ll have to read it for yourself.

I’m reading the second book in this series now.

Stay tuned!

I love this story!
