A business card is a funny little thing. People throw them in fishbowls for free sandwiches, they exchange them at events, they buy special, shiny cases to hold them, and they find them in side pockets and overlooked nooks and crannies after being tucked away and long forgotten. Business cards are disposable by nature. You give them out and hope for the best. You order them in large batches and use them to consolidate your information in a convenient little package. Just a slip of…Continue

The moment I've dreamt about is here. Ever since I was a little girl, sitting in the library tucked between the shelves with my nose in a book, I've imagined what it would be like to have my book published.
In the last few months, there's been so much anticipation, hard work, things I…Continue

Every once in a while I feel a rage day coming on. Thankfully, a parking spot and a musically infused subway ride saved me the other day. Who knew? The subway could have such an uplifting effect.

Fear has held an unhealthy place in my psyche for as long as I can remember. Fear of heights and water kept me from flying, or learning to swim until I was a married adult and had powerful motivation to do so. Fear of rejection held me back as an entrepreneur, from joining a critique group, and from…Continue

Every day brings more excitement as my publication date comes closer. The invitations for my launch party arrived today. Postcards created by Gallery Books are being shipped with the orders from my online bridal business www.elegantbridaldesigns.com.…Continue
The doorbell rang just as I was sitting down to write this blog. I went downstairs and found a large box from Gallery Books on my doorstep. I ran to my neighbor’s house with the heavy item, because this moment couldn’t be done alone, and opened up the large container. A rush of emotion filled me - seven years of…Continue

After all the changes in the weather over the last month, I can see signs of spring all over and there is no turning back now – well actually, our last frost date is the middle of May, so I’m thinking there will be some cold yet to come…but, the momentum has…Continue

I am sitting at JFK airport--Mad Props to Jet Blue for providing free Wi-fi and ample electrical outlets--in a four hour layover. Took the red-eye from Burbank. My body thinks I landed at 2:30 in the morning and my husband really thinks I need to attend this with him after I land in Rochester at 10:30 a.m.:

So day before yesterday I heard back from the agent who had my manuscript and she said that she got about halfway through it and decided the setting wasn't convincing and that the character of Iz was too static, i.e., he did not transform fast enough. One of the regular readers and cheerers-on of my other novels also gave the same critique. From a previous posting, you know that I was almost anticipating rejection and knowing that a rejection from this particular person would hurt…Continue

Previously, I've written crime/thriller fiction, but for some reason, the young adult paranormal genre called to me. I had to listen to the calling and the result is "The Other Side: Melinda's Story." The release date is April 9, 2013. I'm going to share below a snippet of the book, but before I do, I want to share with you a few advance reviews:
"The Other Side: Melinda’s Story” is one of those rare paranormal thrillers that challenges as it entertains. Starr Reina's…Continue

Let’s face it: you’re addicted. You can’t live without it. When you’re not actually enjoying it, you’re longing to savor it again. You’d be ashamed to admit how many waking moments you’ve devoted to obsessing about it.
I’m not talking about drugs, kinky sex or even double chocolate layer cake.
I’m taking about Downton Abbey. You can’t get enough of those crazy Crawleys and their long-suffering servants. The gorgeous settings! The fabulous clothing! The crisp…Continue

When I set out to ride my Royal Enfield Bullet around India I did so with the intension of writing about the journey. That meant, after I’d finished the ride, I’d need to find a place to hunker down and write the book. I no longer had a home in New Delhi, having given up my apartment when I set out on the trip. But even if I did, I knew New Delhi, with its honking horns, shouting vendors and general melee in the streets would be, as Indians say, “most unsuitable”. …Continue
