Welcome to my Blog!

Dear Kindred Souls,


After some trial and error with help from my Webmaster, unknown passwords and usernames, and various other tripups, I've finally gone live! I'll be posting about books I've written, books I've read, books on my mile-high TBR pile, links to friends' and authors' sites and blogs, and postings about my other passions such as history, music, the paranormal, astronomy, and whatever hits me that I need to pass on to the world.My website,, is also up to date. Contests, pictures, YouTube videos and other fun stuff to follow.Please stop by and say hello! --Diana


  1. Hi Diana,

    Congratulations on getting your blog up and running, and thanks for inviting me to come on over and blab about myself a bit. For those that don't know me, I'm Brian L Porter, award-winning author of The Preditors & Editors Best Thriller Novel of 2008 Award Winner 'A Study in Red - The Secret Journal of Jack the Ripper'. the book is also under contract to a Movie company in L.A. who are currently developing it for the silver screen. It's a dark, psychological thriller that tells ....No, I can't say. Perhaps if you go to you'll find out more and see the video trailer too.

    Of course, your readers can find out more about my other works too at, including my latest short releases 'Dracula Doesn't Live Here Anymore' and 'Murder, Mayhem and Mexico' all available from

    Best regards

    Author, A Study in Red - The Secret Journal of Jack the Ripper

  3. Hi Diana,

    I really like your A BLOODY GOOD CRUISE widget! Great start on your blog!

  4. Congratulations on getting your blog up! I'll "twitter" about it and send folks your way!

  5. Yea! Congratulations on the blog.


  6. Welcome to blogging, a dark and arcane art particularly suited to one who would write about "normal" vampires.
    Given my "druthers", I prefer the traditional ones, ridiculous as they are.

  7. Congratulations on getting the blog going! It looks like it will be fun! Your book sounds like fun too!

  8. Congratulations on joining the blogging world, Diana! Both this and your site look great -- and love your widget!!!

  9. Great news about your blog, Diana. Blogs are an excellent way to keep a conversation going with your readers.


  10. Dear Friends,
    Thanks for the great encouragement! It's actually pretty scary, moreso than the website was, cos this goes live every day--it's like doing live TV--I guess that'll be the next big thing--webcasts--we'll be visible on our blogs & will have to hair & makeup every day before sitting down to the computer!
    I'm still having some trial & error, so my Webmaster is coming over on Fri. to rescue me. I hope to be zipping around here without any help soon, cos I love to chat, and want to get some lively gabfests going. Have a great day! Diana

  11. Congrads on getting the blog up and running. :-D
