I finally finished re-editing the first book in the Chronicles of the Celestial series, Swept into the Darkness. It took me a while to work on it and get it exactly the way I want it, but I can say that I am so happy with it.

On Monday I sent the manuscript back to my editor for a final review. Once I give my final approval, the manuscript will be re-published.

I’m so excited about the re-launch of this book, that I had to take a break from writing my new post-apocalyptic fantasy, to resume writing the other books in the COTC series. I just finished chapter 1 in book four which is titled Dark Defiance.

The journey that my main character Sydney embarks upon is definitely an adventure that is out-of-this-world. She faces new challenges, and as new enemies arise, her ability to fight against the darkness is tested once she learns that someone close to her is not what he seems.

Swept into the Darkness: Chronicles of the Celestial book one is an urban fantasy adventure that introduces the world to a beautiful character named Sydney London. Sydney has always had special powers, growing up with these abilities she never really believed that her powers were real until tragedy strikes.
As she deals with the trials of her life, she realizes that the powers she has are real, and that she is part of the war between heaven, hell and earth.
Sydney’s struggles to live an ordinary life, but the more she struggles to be normal, the more she drifts off into worlds beyond the realm of her reality.

Swept into the Darkness is in the process of being re-edited. The re-editing is almost complete, and the book will be re-released. Following the release will be a book tour hosted by Promotional Book Tours. I will also do a Goodreads promotion, and will have various giveaways during and after the tour. Complete details will be announced.

Anger and frustration are emotions that every human being experiences during their lifetime.
The cause of these emotions could be as simple as sitting in traffic jam, to a garbage truck blocking your passage down the street,or someone not calling you back, to people not listening to you when you have something important to say. The list goes on and on.
How can you as a well grounded person in this society handle anger and frustration? For me the answer is not as simple as you think,but I think that trying to focus on something positive helps. I try to look on the bright of most situations. Deep breathing and thinking things through when you have clear head is also good. This can help with some of the more complicated causes of anger and frustration. And most importantly, its always good to have some kind of outlet to let go and burn off some steam. Writing, reading,walking, running, a day at the spa, doing something that takes you to another realm mentally and physically are all things that will help you regroup and handle those emotions better.

Good Luck to everyone and remember try to relax. Life is too short to deal with things beyond your control. Stress is still the number killer in the U.S.

Writing, creating characters, and magical storylines that take readers on unforgettable adventures is a passion that is deeply rooted within me.

Writing is a necessity for my life, just like air and water. It creates a happiness in me that nothing can replace.

When my pen touches the paper, I am transformed into the characters and situations that I create. I assume their lives to a degree that changes my connection to the outside world. It makes me more aware of the enviroments and the people within those environments. My imagination crosses the boarders of reality, giving me the ability to visualize supernatural beings in our world.
Writing and creating allows me to be open to the infinite possibilities that this world has to offer.

Embrace your creativity and be open.
Happy Reading and Writing!

Even though she has defeated many of her enemies, she must now face the ultimate betrayal as she continues to defend the human race on the Earthly Realm. As she remains strong in her efforts to fight against the “Darkness” Sydney learns that the one person she is trying to save may not be the person she was meant to save. All the choices that Sydney make are important and her will to fight and survive is strong. Will the Betrayal be so devastating that it changes her mission? You will have to read to find out.
Dark Betrayal is darker than book one, because it takes the main character Sydney on a rollercoaster ride of experiences that reveal a whole new world of darkness that few magical beings have seen.

As we all start the recovery process from Hurricane Sandy, slowly I have started to get back on track with everything.  My heart goes out to all the families that lost their homes as a result of Sandy.  May God be with you and deliver you out of this disheartening period in your lives.

I usually don’t blog this early but the baby is sleeping and work is delayed because of the snow so I decided to take this opportunity to write a long overdue blog post.  I will begin with updates concerning Swept into the Darkness Book one.  My promotion was delayed because of the storm, but now things seem to be falling into place again.  I am waiting for the latest edition of my proof to arrive, which I ordered a few moments ago.  As soon as I review it and approve it, the paperback will be available for purchase.  I am striving for perfection and that takes time, patience and money.  It’s amazing how long and tedious publishing a book can be.  On my original timeline, book one and two were supposed to be published and available to readers.  When it is finished it is finished.  Despite all the work that comes with publishing, I really love it.  The more I write and work on my books the more passion I gain for my craft.  The feeling is indescribable.

Announcements will be made on my blog as well as via Twitter and Facebook once the book is up for purchase.  My Facebook release party is in a couple of weeks.  I am just waiting to confirm my official date and will announce that once I get more info on that.  If you cannot wait for a paperback, Swept into the Darkness is available on all distribution channels as an eBook, which includes Barnes and Noble and Amazon.com

Book two in the Chronicles of the Celestial Series will be titled Swept into Betrayal.  The book is in the process of being typed.  It is complete but I am making some changes as I go along.

There are many promotional events that are being planned for the release of Swept into the Darkness.  As they begin to unfold I will make sure that they are announced.

Be Safe, Happy and Healthy

How can a person be caught in a web of negativity?  There are so many things that can go on in a person’s life that can contribute to that.  The web is life and the things that make up life.  The negative aspects are obviously very overwhelming and vary in capacity.  What makes the whole thing even more difficult is the fact that you are stuck within a realm that is consistently holding you back mentally, spiritually and physically.  Sometimes you may feel like it is impossible to move forward or live up to the greatness that you are supposed to be and live.  Many people may say  “just remove that negativity from your life”  But I say that it is not that simple.  It takes time, patience and planning.  You must endure or tolerate certain negative aspects in your life so you can begin to set up the necessary building blocks to take one step at a time to move in the direction of the path you want to take.   The direction of positive change and high potential.  The whole idea is a process on its own but the end result will be good no matter how far away you think the journey is.  So no matter how tight my legs are tangled in the web, I will always manage to wiggle free, and embrace my creativity turning the web of negativity into weaves of positiveness and great success by overcoming my challenges and rising above it all.

Happy Reading and Writing!!
