Blurb Blitz: Diamonds N' Roses by Vogue

 Diamonds N' Roses

by Vogue


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


GENRE:  Contemporary Fiction


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:


After battling through the highs and lows of an intense and often dramatic relationship, fashion designer, Carmen Davenport, and business mogul, Jay Santiago, are finally ready to plan their most anticipated event to date – their wedding. However, before they can get down the aisle, they must endure a few unexpected surprises, twists, and turns.




~~~~~~~~~~~~~


EXCERPT:


It was going on almost four o’clock in the morning when Jay pulled in the driveway of Carmen’s estate. He expected to see his limo parked outside the house, but it was gone. He pulled out his cell phone to see a series of missed calls and voicemails, mostly from his right-hands. They were all questioning his whereabouts. He didn’t return any of their calls. He only wanted to leave the city as quickly as he could. For all he knew, Carmen had contacted their wedding planners and canceled the wedding. Once the sun came up, the estate would be a media circus as everyone wanted the story behind their breakup. 


 He knew he didn’t want to be a part of a scandal and felt the best decision was to return to San Juan. The trip would give him the time and space he and Carmen needed until they were able to sort out their differences. He also could turn away the vendors who had already begun preparation for their wedding. The only downfall of the trip was that he would miss seeing his kids on Christmas. While he could FaceTime with them, it wouldn’t be the same as having them in his presence. That was a dilemma he would have to figure out within the next twenty-four hours. For now, he made his way to the pool house.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:


Born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina, Vogue’s journey through the world of creative writing first began in middle school with poetry and songwriting. However, it was her discovery of prose that opened the door to a world of endless possibilities.


A graduate of Winthrop University (Rock Hill, S.C.), possessing a bachelor’s degree in social work, Vogue, first birthed the idea of The Diamond Collection in the halls of her alma mater. In 2003, she put pen to paper and thus was created, Diamonds in The Rough, part one of The Diamond Collection series.


By 2010, Vogue had written drafts of the entire ten book series and in June of 2010, Diamonds in The Rough, was published. Soon followed by Diamonds Are Forever in October of 2010, The Ace of Diamonds in February of 2013, and Black Diamonds on July 4, 2015, Vogue joined a league of other writers, determined to make her mark in the literary world.


Vogue released the fifth book in the series, Diamonds N’ Roses, on December 25, 2016. She took a hiatus to earn a Master of Fine Arts degree from Queens University in Charlotte, NC, but released parts six and seven of the Diamond Collection series, The Diamond Tiara and Dirty Red Diamonds, on June 7, 2022.


When she isn’t writing, Vogue enjoys cooking, blogging about food (Instagram: Miss Black Foodie), attending concerts, festivals, and traveling.
