Books that live forever in your heart and dreams

Just a thought!

Today I thought I would offer you a little about why I have a book coming out!
I know it was a shock too so many of you, including my closest friends, that I am getting ready to release a book out into the world. It's one of those things that just happen, and I have no idea "WHY".  I had not shared this with anyone, including my family till the very end. So do not feel like I left you out!
The how of course is simple. I had went to bed and was having a hard time sleeping, as many of you have experienced. Thoughts were rolling a mile a minute through my head. My nights are always crazy, constantly trying to figure out what will come in life, the how to make a difference or just the why's! So I fell asleep and something, rather it was a dream or a thought I don't know, came to my head, no my heart. Anyways,  I woke up and text myself on my phone a message. Yes, I said that. I literally was texting "myself" messages throughout this whole process. The next morning I got up and had a cup of coffee, then grabbing my phone and I started this big journey.
Most of you know me as the stripper event crasher, or the person chasing cowboys in downtown facebook, or through Young Adult Teen readers or my favorite the "chocolate loving beast." I even tried to be a super hero one time but lost flight and my cape blew away. I want to tell you a secret about Derinda Love!!! I am very shy!!! Yes that is what I said SHY, so pick your jaws up off the floor. I know.... I know, your probably saying how can someone walk into a event flashing the world be shy. Well don't ask me, because I have no clue hahhahaha!

Anyways, I have no idea where this journey will take me next, but know that I love each and everyone of you. If I don't know you, I look forward to getting to know. My hopes for this book is that it will touch you. I can not wait to hear your thoughts!
