It’s time I come out

3 Nov

That life takes you places you haven’t imagined is no secret. That it throws at you hurdles and trials–one bigger than other–again is no secret. That it’s partially unfair, oh well, we all know it.

But it also gives you moments of awe. Moments of pure laughter and happiness. Moments when love bubbles in your heart so intense you’re afraid it might explode in your chest. Moments when fear of the unknown is conquered and you feel on top of the world, proud of your accomplishments and stronger than ever.

A few days ago I had such a moment. For the past year I’ve been part of a local author group, nine to be exact. Our regular meetings left me energized, motivated and brave enough to confront my doubts about my writing journey. During one of these meetings a new idea was born, the launch of a joint blog. And unlike other such blogs, we decided the main goal of ours is to expose our readers to our muses, the wonderful voices that inspire us to create one hero at a time, one story after another, and where love knows no boundaries. Welcome to the Desert Muses Blog.

To celebrate our launch we are offering a Kindle to one lucky winner. Hop over at the Desert Muses Blog and enter the rafflecopter. Then sit back relax and wait for the bell to ring. It might be the mailman delivering that very Kindle.

Good luck everyone!

VIRTUAL BOOK TOUR–Midnight Masquerade by Marcia Lynn McClure

16 Aug

Midnight Masquerade


Stavos Voronin was not as blind-eyed as many nobles and royals. Evony’s physical gestures—even the simplest movement of her hands—revealed that she had not always been destitute. The same was true of the children—of their polished manners and the boy’s knowledge of horses and tendency to be bold and fearless of strangers.

Ah yes, Stavos enjoyed a good mystery. After all, interest in the inexplicable circumstances surrounding the royals of Abawyth was the very thing that had lured him to the kingdom—the enigma of Abawyth’s twelve sleepy princesses. And yet now—now his mind was all the more intrigued. Not only was the obscurity of what had caused the profound and baffling torpidity of Abawyth’s princesses laid out before him, but also he found his curiosity intensely piqued over the riddle surrounding the very lovely Evony and her siblings.

As Stavos strode through the village resting on the outskirts of Abawyth Castle, his mind reeled with possibilities. His musings were drawn back to why he had come to Abawyth at all—to solve the conundrum surrounding the twelve beautiful princesses of Abawyth kingdom—to solve the seemingly impenetrable crux and thereby win the hand of one of Abawyth’s princesses, as his father, King Letholdus of Ethiarien, had commanded.

Young Adult Giveaway Hop 01/29 – 02/04/2013

28 Jan

Up until a few years ago I don’t recall reading novels in the young adult genre. The Harry Potter and Twilight of the publishing industry didn’t make it on my bookshelf, not because I had something against them, but because well … I had long passed that stage of my life (which I rather refuse to remember it) and because what could they possible have experienced for me to want to know about them, huh?

Well, I was wrong. Here and now mea culpa for being so … shallow. The truth is YA is one of my fav genres now, thanks to quite a few authors whose novels made me fall in love with it. In fact I began writing in this genre myself and I loooove it. Since I’ve recently given away books written by Sherry Gammon and Cindy C Bennett (which are by far my fav authors for this genre) I chose for today’s giveaway YOUNG ADULT HOP Cambria Hebert’s Masquerade. And to make it even more fun I’ll add my own historical YA short story called I Was Here–Before You Came.



Organized by Kathy @ Im A reader Not a Writer and helped this time by Amanda @ BookLove101 this hop runs between 01/29 and 02/04 with my winner announcement on 02/05. Open internationally for your chance to win an electronic version of these books you could:

1. Like Masquerade on Amazon


2. Like I Was Here–Before You Came on Amazon


3. Like both! 

P.S: I’m running out of ideas what to ask of you in return for my prizes… I’d love to hear from you what’s your favorite thing to do to win. Leave a comment, please 🙂
