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!

-I previously worked in Wayne, PA on Swedesboro Road and Devon
Park Drive.

Ocean City every year with their families.
-My husband used to work at the Power Plant in Eddystone for
PECO/Exelon.
-My sister’s name is Monica and I call her Moni.
-Two of my sons live in Media – one on one side of Linvilla
Orchards and the other on the other side.
-We are still Phillies and Eagle fans.
-I bowled at the Showboat Casino many moons ago.
-I love Wawa and wish they had them here in Arizona. If you live  near a Wawa you are going there at least once a day.
-Three of my kids graduated from Cardinal O’Hara High School.

The lists just goes on and on. I can’t wait to finish the book. You are a wonderful author. You keep me wanting more!

A Few of My Favorite Water Signs Book Reviews

I released the second edition of my 2008 novel Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal on July 15 (paperback) and July 8 (Kindle).

Why a new release?

Since publishing the book the first time around, I became a ghostwriter in addition to editing and helping other authors to navigate the independent publishing process. Eventually, this path led to the founding of Writestream Radio Network (March 2013) and Writestream Publishing LLC (June 2015) with my good friend and trusted biz partner Lisa Tarves.

Needless to say, I’ve acquired much more knowledge about the independent publishing industry and writing over the past eight years. Aside from wanting to publish my novel under the Writestream imprint, I also wanted to make some dialogue corrections and narration changes. While my book was well received and highly rated, as an author, I felt compelled to fix the things that were bothering me about the first edition. And thanks to the talents of Kia Heavey (cover designer) and Matt Margolis (interior formatting), my original vision has finally been fulfilled.

Still, it’s nice to look back upon some of my favorite reviews in the hope that new readers will respond in a similar manner:

Water Signs was one of those rare books that I had to force myself to put down because it was such an engaging, refreshing read. I enjoyed the fact that the story was set around the Jersey shore, as I am a Jersey girl myself. But what truly kept me reading was that Daria put so much life into her characters! Their personalities, their personal convictions, and their sense of family were so palpable that every time I read a page, it was like coming home to friends. The story kept me hooked all the way through, allowing me to experience Ken and Maddy’s life journeys along with them right on to the very end. The good thing is that the end wasn’t really the end, as Daria is currently working on the sequel, so I look forward to the day that I can pick up with Ken and Maddy on the next phase of their journey together! If you are searching for a truly good book that will leave you satisfied, Water Signs is definitely worth every penny!

The book flows with a great story line easy to follow and the imagination is caught in the rich descriptions of the surroundings as one can almost smell the ocean, hear the birds, and feel the breeze. The dialogue is a little abrupt at times, as some sentences seem to catch one off guard, but upon further reading, it blends with the pending emotion which ensues in joy, tears, heartache, and redemption, in which all can relate. – K. Fitzgerald

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. Speaking of more…please Daria, write the sequel as we are left sitting on the edge our seats wanting more. Madeline Rose and her charming husband Kenny will enrich your lives with their love for each other. Yes, a perfect romance does exist. — Anni

Pisces

Daria is such a brilliant writer that you actually feel like you are living the story with the main character. I was so engrossed in this book, that there were times I had forgotten that I was sitting in my bedroom! This book is an excellent escape from one’s daily routine. I was always a slow reader, but let me tell you, I read through this book so fast, I even surprised myself!

Never did I ever feel like I could relate to a character as much as I could relate to this one. I could not believe how much Madeline’s life paralleled mine. It kept me wanting to read on. I can count AT LEAST five similar situations that the character and myself have been through.. It blew me away.

In addition, ANYONE suffering from panic/anxiety disorder or knows someone who is, MUST read this book. It will give you reassurance that this is only a temporary condition that will go away. You will lead a normal life again.

Not only will this book give you a sense of hope that true love does exist, it also proves that certain “bumps” that one goes through in life, are only temporary and will pass. Upon completion of this book, I had feelings of warmth, peace and hope, stir within me.

There is a light at the end of each dismal tunnel.

This is A MUST READ!!!..Any novel I had read after “Water Signs”, pales in comparison to this book. I am definitely looking forward to any future novels from this author.

Writestream Tuesday: Curvy Goddess Leila Lacey

Ladies, are you tired of impossibly thin romance novel heroines with absolutely no resemblance to real women? Looking for a refreshing take on the genre, where the plots actually have a purpose other than to provide filler between love scenes?

Join me for Writestream Tuesday on September 29 at 1 p.m. Eastern when I welcome Curvy Goddess Romance Author Leila Lacey to the show:

Love comes in many shapes and sizes.  Rising Michigan Author Leila Lacey writes from the heart about the trials and tribulations of love and romance from a curvy woman’s perspective.  With over 12 popular books on Amazon to date, she’s steadily claiming her space as a new romantic fiction author to keep an eye on.

Bow down to the curves.  That’s the philosophy that’s motivated romantic fiction author Leila Lacey as she’s wrote over a dozen popular books taking a hot and exciting look at love and adventure from a strong, curvy woman’s viewpoint.  The books have been received with enthusiasm, and it’s clear the best is yet to come.

“I think it’s important to present strong, beautiful, curvy women that have amazing female to female relationships,”  commented Lacey, on what motivates her.  “If we don’t provide alternative role models for people, they could fall into the trap of not loving who is looking them back in the mirror.  Romantic fiction should entertain, but it should also help build confidence and a great self-image.  I’m trying to cover all these things and more in my books.”
