So excited

Mother's Day Garden 032

I am so excited. Life is full of changes and right now mine is in an uproar. I’m buying a new house, taking care of my three granddaughters ages three and under. Getting ready to move and facing retirement.

Yes, for a while I moped around and had difficulty writing, but then I was called by my angels to do another project. “Angel Whispers,” where I share the ArchAngel’s messages with you. You will find these messages over at CarynBlock.com

As I write the messages to share with you, I am uplifted and held in divine hands. It feels wonderful. I started writing again and expect to publish Aqua Magic by the fall. Life feels more meaningful and connected. The craziness isn’t as bad. I can find peace and have a strong sense of security. Hallelujah!

I hope the messages can do some of the same for you. Ask the angels to walk with you everyday. They are waiting for your call.

It’s May!

Book heart

It’s May!

I don’t know about you, but May is my favorite month. I start the month off singing “Tra la” and finish the month with a stronger focus on what the future holds. This year is no different as I prepare to move to Pennsylvania.

Unlike many of my previous moves, this one is going to start slow with me traveling back and forth from Virginia to Pennsylvania. Writing has taken a back seat while I concentrate on what gets to move and what gets to be recycled. Spring cleaning at its finest.

So, I ask that you have patience with me as you wait for the next book. I’m sure to have something out for Christmas and hope to finish “Aqua Magic” before the summer ends.

Wish me luck that the move goes smoothly. The quicker I get settled, the quicker I can get back into my paranormal world.

I hope May brings many wonderful experiences to you and yours,

Caryn

Aqua Magic

Book Four of the Witch Guardian Romance Series

 Brenna Ross is trapped in her own mind. Possessed by a Marwolaeth, that is slowly killing her, it used her to murder those she loves. As hard as she struggles to regain control of her body, she can’t break free. Still she will fight, desperately trying to tell her sister she’s sorry.

Marcus Ondine knew the minute the little witch and her older sister walked into his pub, The Blue Dolphin, that she was “the one” — what the magical folk call his “Destined One.” Now he’s returned to Earth to find her possessed by the Marwolaeth. Only by taking her to his home world of Aquarius can he save her from death, but what will happen when she wakes and finds herself in an underwater world?

April Fool

Flowers and stuff 005Alas, it has happened again. Time has slipped away from me and now I can’t believe it’s April already.  A new granddaughter was born on Christmas Eve and my total attention has been on my family.  At least now it appears I am coming out of my mind fog and beginning to write again. So in honor of National Poetry Month, I give you:

It’s October!

img_1839I love October with Halloween, Fall Leaves, Apple Cider and Costumes. Maybe that’s why I write paranormal romance books full of Werewolves, Witches, and Shadow Walkers. But don’t get me wrong, I’m not into horror. I don’t like to be scared and if I see a scary movie I’ll hide my eyes and probably have nightmares. Yes, I’m a lightweight.

I love “Love” and happy endings full of hope and dreams. See, totally a Romance Writer. This Halloween I’m dressing up as a “Fire Witch” from my “Witch Guardian Romance Series.” It was great fun to shop for special material to make flames. Wish me luck as I get the sewing machine out and try to whip this costume out before the end of the month.

In honor of October and the writing prompt “haunted” I wrote the following poem:

Haunted

by Caryn Moya Block

The little things
The smell of pizza
Your crooked smile
The softest touch

Turn my thoughts
Binding them to you
Without hope of escape
I am captured

A lost soul
Forever roaming the Earth
Searching for completeness
But never attained

You are gone
A longing unfulfilled
An emptiness of heart
Forever haunted

Captivating Blog Posts

Rose on pageAs an author, you would think that writing Blog posts would be easy for me. Nope, I never know what to write. If a book is coming out then it’s easy for me to figure out what needs to be said. But, when I just want to connect with my readers, I agonize over what to put in front of you.

So I’m going to ask you, my reader. What do you want in my blog posts? (Please leave a comment with your answers)

Here are some ideas:   Writing tips

                                    Personal Inspiration Stories

                                    In-depth character reviews

                                    Pet stories

                                    Daily diary tales

                                    Quotes

                                    Poetry

I’m sure there are many more topics not listed.

I need to hear from you! I want to connect and I need help doing so. I feel like the girl at the dance that nobody notices. Let’s dance, give me a topic. I’ll share what I know and you can pick my brain clean.

I’m waiting to hear from you,

Caryn

Poetry – In Hard Times

I normally wait to post my poetry in April for National Poetry Month. But I find that when things take a downturn in my life my words come in poems to express my sorrows.

In February one of my Shetland Sheepdogs died. Her name was Truly. Even now I tear up when I face her absence. She was a wonderful companion and the following poetry came about because of her loss.

Truly

Time

Time

slips away

like sand through my fingers

until suddenly

gone

 

Passing On

Warm arms lift

Holding you cradled to a

Heartbeat of love.

Angel wings unfurl

You are flying

Away from Earth

Into another step of your journey

And a new beginning.

 

Truly (dogs)

They come to you with licks

of love for your hands and face.

Embrace their unconditional love now

as their joy washes over you.

For time is fleeting and one day

they’ll be gone and you will miss

those tail wags and sloppy kisses.

 

Love is Complicated

Book heart

Wow! Here it is February and I haven’t written a blog since the New Year. I’m so sorry. Life has been kind of exciting around here, to the point where I had to move my deadline for “Trapped In Shadow” back to March. Still not sure of the exact release date, but I will let you know as it gets closer.

For those of you who are signed up for my newsletter, you’ve seen pictures of my granddaughter, Amilya. She was born a preemie and had a hard time coming into the world. She and I bonded while she was still in the womb and I delight in every second we have together. So when my son said he was taking his family to live in Florida, I was heartbroken.

I had been doing so well with my writing, too. Up to Chapter 14 in “Trapped” and planning four or five more. Now however, I am grieving the loss and break up of my family and have a hard time even thinking of what words to put on the paper. I’m afraid it may take me a couple of weeks to get my mojo back.

You probably think that’s funny since I’m writing this blog without a problem. But the truth is, writing this blog helps me get some of my emotions out so I can move on. I keep reminding myself that the world is different from when I was a child. We have Facetime and Skype now. I may not be able to hold Amilya, but chances are with some effort on my part she won’t forget me.

So bear with me. I will get my act together soon and the next and possibly last Shadow Walker book will come your way. I know you’ll love Hugh and Stacey’s story.

April is National Poetry Month

IMAG1002-20150411-162655926B  April is National Poetry Month

At the Local Authors Fair at Cascades Library, Stirling VA. I met a charming, witty man by the name of Leonard Greenberg. He has written three books and I bought one. His “A Lifetime of Songs” is wonderful as you read through the lyrics he’s written throughout his life. He very nicely gave me permission to share some of his song lyrics with you.

I thought that April would be a wonderful time to share his fabulous rhymes. I hope you enjoy his work as much as I do. For more information on his books, follow the link above.

The Rest of My Life

The rest of my life

Whenever you need me,

I’ll bring you comfort and fun.

The rest of my life

I’ll go where you lead me,

Two hearts are better than one.

            Gone are the wiles of my childhood

            We’ll start a life.

            Husband and wife!

The joy you’ve supplied,

Your warmth and your laughter

Are like the rays of the sun.

With you by my side

To share ever after,

You’ll be my treasure,

My infinite pleasure,

The best of the rest of my life.

It’s a Brand New Year

Book heart  It’s a Brand New Year!

Thank you everyone that has stopped by CarynMoyaBlock.com!

After taking a much needed break at Christmas, I am ready to get back to blogging and telling all of you about my new books and writing experiences.

First of all, Congratulations to Alisha Frias, Lynn Smith, and Dominique Goodall, the winners of my contests at the Vampires, Werewolves, and Shifters, Oh My! Facebook Party. I have contacted the winners by email and their prizes will be in the mail, pronto.

Next, after talking to the powers that be, we have decided to push back the releases of my new books this year, to give me more time, and to have a calmer writing experience, and hopefully better books. So, I have just put the second book of the Witch Guardian Romance Series, “Aerial Magic,” up for Pre-Order. Links to the different sites will be added to the Coming Soon page as they go live. Thank you to Cora Graphics for the fantastic book cover!Medium Aerial

For those of you that can’t wait for the next Siberian Volkov Romance, “My Perfect Mate” will be coming June 8th. This is the 10th book in the series and the third book for the Quebec Pack. it will be a cross-over with the Witch Guardians.

I know some of you keep wondering what is happening with the American packs and I promise those questions will be answered, starting with book #11, “Shadow Mate,” a cross-over book with the Shadow Walkers.

In the Shadow Walker Tribe Romance Series, we will be returning with book #3, “Black and Shadow”, Tentative Release Date, August 3rd. This is Joe Running bear’s story and I’m sure you’ll enjoy returning to that world. Joe will have his hands full with Jessica Black.

Sometime in November, will be the Lycan holiday story. I’m not really sure who is going to raise their hand for that one, but I expect it will be the English Pack, or the Paris Pack.

Thank you to my fans for staying with me. I’m sure that 2015 is going to be a great year!
