Late to the party – as told with emojis!

I don’t like being late- ever 🤦🏻‍♀️🕰. But two back-to-back sinus infections might do that to you! So please allow me to give you a heartfelt 😩🙏🏼apology that my blog post is a few days late! ❤️

On a brighter note☀️ not convoluted with tissues and cough😷, I’m SO EXCITED to be returning to the SMP blog🔥!

I released my first book, The Féria, in 2012 with Soul Mate Publishing under my pen name, Julía Bade. Since then, it has been a whirlwind 🌪of writing and deleting and revising and publishing 👩🏻‍💻.

I also began writing #kidlit🎈and have two indie picture books and two middle grade novels I’m working on with my agent all the while, working on my romance novels 🔥.

My latest novel with SMP is titled, The Baby Symphony🤰🏻🤱🏻🍼🎼. It’s a book about loss and love. My couple keeps experiencing miscarriages and eventually splits up because of the emotional turmoil and the guilt my main character, Emilia, feels. Of course, there’s a happily ever after, but I am saving the Baby Symphony Post for next time! But I will briefly say, do be ready for laugh-out-loud humor😂, great depths of emotion😞☹️😒😭😍, and wild plot twists🌪😳.

I’ll leave you with this thought. In romance, we write about the greatest of love affairs 💋Appropriately, writing is certainly an affair of the heart💌. It hurts at times, forcing you to get back up again after a string of rejections and uncertainty. But writing brings joy, too. There is beauty in plotting, power in writing the words: The End👩🏻‍💻, and then there is the adrenaline rush when your future agent sends you that email asking for a phone call with you 👸🏻.

So why should our readers know this 🤷🏻‍♀️? Well, because it’s for them💟. Every single emotion- the ups and downs🎢, the joy 🎉and pain💔, the flaws and rejection, the long hours and success, it’s all poured out into our work which we write with great hope that our readers will love 🙏🏼. Every word is soaked in a passion 🔥 that only other writers can understand, and we package it all up 💝, and we give our baby to the world 🤱🏻, waving goodbye like proud parents🙋🏻‍♀️, joyful tears welling in our eyes on release day.

So thank you to my readers. I am your biggest fan. ❤️
