Thank you for making THE PURVELI a USA TODAY Bestseller!!

You all rock!! I've been so thrilled by your responses to Ava and Jak'ri's story. I really love those two together. THE PURVELI was chosen as a Barnes&Noble Press Top 5 Favorite Indie eBook! Thank you, Nook readers! πŸ™‚

Here's what reviewers are saying:

"I had an absolute blast reading this book... I totally, completely and enthusiastically recommend this novel for sci-fi romance readers who like action, a hero and heroine who survive impossible odds and a story that sucks a person in because the writing is just that good."

"This would make an AWESOME movie!... The author spins such a creative universe with characters that are rich and bold and full of love. I can't wait to read more."

"Another incredible adventure in this sci-fi romance series!... Sci-fi is not my usual reading genre. However, I love Dianne's writing style, the language she uses and the way she paces her plots. I was drawn into this story and remained hooked throughout."

"Dianne Duvall's characters are always likable. I appreciate a good dose of humor in stories, and her characters are laugh-out-loud hillarious. The women are stong-willed and tough, and the men never make them feel abnormal for it...I have previously thought myself uninterested in the sci-fi fantasy romance world, but the Aldebarian Alliance books have quickly won me over to that side."

Thank you so much, everyone who has taken time to post a review. I love seeing that I've made readers and audiobook lovers happy as much as I love writing. ❤️ 

I'm currently working on Aldebarian Alliance Book 4 and am having soooo much fun with it. πŸ™‚

A lot of readers and audiobook lovers have mentioned how much they would love to see my books on the big screen. I used to work in the local independent film community, so having my books made into movies or a series is a 
HUGE dream of mine. Unfortunately, one thing I've learned from working with very talented, award-winning indie filmmakers who are still trying to get their toes in the door is that it is exceedingly difficult to break into Hollywood if you don't already have connections or know someone with connections. The agents I've spoken with are more interested in shopping my indie books to traditional publishers than to Hollywood. So I'm trying more unorthodox approaches, one of which is pitching π—§π—›π—˜ π—¦π—˜π—šπ—’π—‘π—œπ—”π—‘ to HULU on their forums. Anything that gets 100 votes is supposed to automatically go to their content/acquisitions team.

So, IF you are a HULU subscriber (you have to be a subscriber and log in to vote or post), it would make me so very happy if you would vote for my request in hopes that it will get their attention.

(Some who have already voted said they had to either hit the Back button on their browser or click on the link a second time after signing in.)

Thank you so much, everyone who has voted for it! ❤️

Those of you who hang out with me on social media have already seen this. But I couldn't resist sharing it again here for those who haven't. I'm a big fan of Stephen King. I really admire his writing style. He has such a way with words. And whenever new writers seek my advice, I'm quick to recommend Stephen King's book On Writing. So Seeing An Immortal Guardians Companion on the bestseller list alongside so many of his works was a real thrill. Thank you, Immortal Guardians fans, for making it happen!!
