Help Water Signs Go Hollywood!

Help Water Signs Go Hollywood!

I just created an IndieGoGo Campaign to help fund my dream of bringing Madeline and Ken’s story to the screen:

It’s every writer’s dream to have their book turned into a movie. And now that dream is coming to fruition and I need your help.

Water Signs, my first novel, which is a loosely autobiographical tale of first love and second chances has the opportunity to GO HOLLYWOOD! My book has been called “A Truly Great American Romantic Novel,” but how it came into existence is a story unto itself…

In 1994, after relocating to Florida I discovered that the man I was deeply and wildly in love with was engaged to another woman. Too painful for my heart and soul to bare, I forced myself into having amnesia about him. Summoning all my strength, I accepted the experience as a catalyst for personal and spiritual growth. I embraced the Sunshine State as my new home.

Or so I thought.

Fourteen years later, on a Sunday afternoon, a psychic blew the floodgates of memories wide open by speaking his name and describing the relationship. Everything I thought I’d forgotten about him and about “us”, came rising back up to my consciousness.

I didn’t have a choice. I had to write about it. With the help of detailed, handwritten journals I had kept, I began the story; within four months, I’d written the first draft and a few months after that, I published Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal.

I had no idea the impact my autobiographical tale of first love and second chances would have on others. One reviewer says, “Water Signs is one of those rare books that makes you feel like you want to meet the characters in person. Yes, they are that real. It is beautifully written with passion for our country and romance. It is one of those books that is just like a good movie, where you hate to see it end.”

I want to get this story out to the world in a huge way! It’s my dream!

Making my book an Amazon Bestseller and building a platform of engaged readers could mean the difference between a producer green-lighting the project or tossing it into the garbage.

Please consider contributing to my fund to help bring this beautiful story to a larger audience through the magic of movie-making. I am grateful for any amount you can donate and have created some perks as my way of saying “Thank You.” Check them out on my page.

Blessings,

Daria

Win a Kindle Version of Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal

Just in time for Memorial Day, enter to win a book about first love and second chances, featuring a United States Navy veteran:

For readers who are in love with romance, Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal, stands out among romance books, romance novels and fiction books. Although characters in a work of fiction, Madeline and Ken’s all too human struggles set them apart from the ordinary heroine and hero. In a departure from most romance novels and romance books for Kindle, Water Signs celebrates faith, family, and patriotism even as it explores coming-of-age in a contemporary world where traditional values are shunned and ridiculed. Still, author Daria Anne DiGiovanni infuses the pages with old-fashioned romance while captivating readers with her vivid descriptions of suburban Philadelphia, the South Jersey Shore, and South Florida.As you’re drawn into this mesmerizing tale of first love and second chances, you’ll see, hear, touch, and smell the salty sea air, the sounds of the ocean, and the aroma of homemade Italian food; you’ll also experience the palpable emotions that characterize a 14-year romance fraught with heartache, miscommunication, and most importantly, genuine, abiding love. Looking for a different kind of romance novel – one that inspires, uplifts and makes you believe in happily ever after? Read Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal.

Discover more at Amazon.com, including 5-star reviews like:

I couldn’t stop myself from being addicted to the outcome of this story! As a mom and an Entrepreneur reading a novel is PURE luxury for me. Reading Daria’s book gave me the escape I needed as I feel in-love with Madeline and could relate to all the longings of her heart, torn between “the right thing to do” by her family and religious standard and what she felt in her heart. Every woman can relate her own youthful hopefulness for a “lifetime” romance, however, Madeline’s journey to love is suspenseful and so engaging I couldn’t stop reading ….and just when I thought the plot was winding down a new twist to keep me hooked was in the next chapter. Indulge in the “treat” of reading this story.

Click here for the Giveaway link to enter to win the Kindle version of the book. For those who prefer paperback, I’m creating a paperback giveaway soon. Stay tuned for details!

A Reader’s Impressions of Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal

A Reader’s Impressions of Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal

Received this wonderful feedback via email yesterday from a reader after returning from my interview with John Ricciutti of Radnor Studio 21.  No matter how many times someone reaches out with positive things to say about Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal, I still get the same feeling of exhilaration and accomplishment. Once upon a time, publishing a novel seemed like an unattainable dream. Then the internet and advanced technology came along and made it all possible. I’m grateful for the many doors this novel has opened for me, including becoming the co-founder of Writestream Publishing and Writestream Radio Network. Thank you to all who have supported me in my endeavors!
