HAPPY THANKSGIVING...

Author Alexandria Infante.
This is the Teaching between Midnight and Dawn Series



Hope Your Day is Wonderful...

Just Remember...

It's important to consider that not everyone is surrounded by large wonderful families. Some of us have problems during the holidays and sometimes are overcome with great sadness when we remember the loved ones who are not with us anymore.

Many people have no friends or families to spend these times with and are besieged by loneliness. We all need caring thoughts and loving prayer right now.  May we ask blessing for those who are down and out at this time of year, and support those who have family problems, health struggles, job issues, worries of any kind and just need to know that someone cares.


May God Bless Keep us all.

Unconditional Love???

Author Alexandria Infante.
This is the Teaching between Midnight and Dawn Series



Today’s Blog….
 Shall be a bit windy lol...( British for long lol)
(Para ti hawaiana)







Love....


I know I posted yesterday that we would end our months long sojourn on Mr. Kalani T, however, I realized that although most of you have realized by now that the book series is actual true life events; many have forgotten, myself included sometimes; that there was once a love affair there. A love that few find, that was fervent, all consuming, combustible, and mind-blowing even with the age difference.
There were many challenges to the relationship; age, race, and at times ill advisement from so called friends on both sides. 


Nevertheless, the most important thing that has been over shadowed by the books, the so called friends meaning well, unwarranted advice from supposed people who cared about us, the relationship, my image as an older women, his image as a “G,” was the fact that there was the foundation of a remarkable friendship, that blossomed into a strong ardent love.


He was the person you could just about tell anything, who truly listened, cared, and tried his best to help in anyway.
It was one of the things that made me love him so much.
Every time I think about what has transpired, and where we are now as individual people, I can hear the bars of Drake’s and Jhene Akio’s Summer Time, “The Hottest Loves have the Coldest Ends,” because this one was and did.


Yet in all the adversity we encountered, his family, my family, friends, frenemeies, haters and such, we both found a love that seemed to weather the storm for a while, and it is that, I wish people to know as well.
There were many remarkable qualities about this young man, his compassion was abundant, his love all consuming, his touch avid, or I never would have fallen in love with him.


The chocolate brown puppy dog eyes, with the most incredible, longest lashes I had ever seen on a guy alone, were my undoing lol.  The chiseled features of his face, especially when he was sporting a five o clock shadow would make any woman swoon.
His height, standing at 6’4 ½ 250 lbs (not fat as Sarah indicated, but thick lol) was awe inspiring to someone my size lol of barely 5’5, and his Hawaiian heritage was quite evident.

But what I loved most about him, was the soft spoken side, the side he allowed very few people to see. I felt privileged that he chose to allow me a glimpse of who he truly was deep inside, and for this reason, it was so painful for me to know the person he became, how he allowed other to influence him, and lived the “life,” that his crew deemed he should live; then chalked it up to his “age,” accepting a stereotype and image others marked him with.
Yet, even in the negativity, we found something special, which few people do. Unfortunately, we both allowed others to taint it to become something it was not. He did things, I did things; each reactions of love and pain, and neither of us could see that.
People in true life, abroad, websites, this blog, and even he, have ask me time and again why I loved him; and the simple fact is, even when I say I hate him, because that line is very true about there being, “A Thin Line Between Love & Hate,” I loved him too much to truly hate him, deep inside.

What I choose to tell the world, and him is something entirely different than how I truly feel; nonetheless, life in general deems that each of us must move in our journey of existence, for the reason that life has choices we must accept and not dwell on, and this is my choice.

In spite of this, I know the person inside, the one that few see where he is concerned, the one he desperately attempts to hide from others, least they see him as “weak.” The person who at a young age tried to make sense of life’s harsh realities, was struck one too many times with these blows, and decided it was much easier to, “not care,” until he met me, and if I feel truly privileged for nothing else in the relationship, it would be that he believed that to be true. 


Unfortunately, due to this, he became susceptible to what others supposed his life should be. And as I ruminate on the past, I believe that this was our biggest foe.
I loved the person who would place his head on my breast to hear my heartbeat, whisper my name in his sleep as he reached for me unconsciously, look deep in my eyes and whisper I love you so much; that my heart seemed to swell each time he did. I loved the person who made me feel whole, who made me laugh constantly, who was there when I got some of the worse news of my life, yet held me through the night trying to make it better.


The person who was his true self, until we both began to listen to ill advised council about age, station in life, what is normal, societal mores, and how we appeared to others; who taunted, ridiculed, and hated because we had something they did not, in a dismal environment; where image of hardness is all that matters to them, and he subsumed it, believing this is who and what he should be.


My biggest crime, not believing in him when he needed me most. Yet at the same time, believing that he could be something better, stronger, and smarter, attempting to uplift, when it wasn’t something he was willing to accept, believe in or attain for himself, so it in turn twisted adoration to bitterness, esteem to loathing, and love to hate.


A few weeks ago, we spoke at length, he informed me that he was with someone new, and he loved her. I wasn’t sure what to say to that, when he asked me why I just couldn't be happy for him?

I thought on that long and hard....






 In reality, few of us ever are, because the very idea of the person you love with someone new and happy, is such a foreign concept to our love struck minds, that we will not, and cannot accept this as truth, so we balk against it internally, do things that seem to bring us appeasement for a time; but at the end of the day, the true feelings of love return, and we must then decide where the love will end? 




Bitterness, unconditional love, or hate......


I am not proud of some of the things that I did and said in the relationship as well. I am truly sorry, and saddened by them at the same time. Many of them were done as a means of coping to cover what I truly felt at the concept of rejection, the money, the wedding ring, all were true acts; until they were rejected, and the unconscious mind immediately seeks to redeem itself, so we make up lies sometimes to comfort ourselves, because we do not like to state love that is no longer requited; it is easier to be angry.


Albeit, I truly had no answer for him...
Because if I were to answer him truthfully, the truths I had wanted to tell him so many times, but fear and age closed my emotions and thoughts off from him, everything I had ever told myself would have come spilling forth; the fact that I had never loved anyone as I did him, that I wanted to marry him, that I needed him in ways that I had never needed another man, that he was the very breath and life to meI wanna dream what you dream, Go where you're going, I only have one life. I only wanna live it with you, I wanna sleep where you sleep, Connect with your soul. The only thing I want in life, I only wanna live it with you; would have seemed contrite in the face of his happiness of someone new, so I allowed the anger to supersede who I am as a person, and sought new ways of dealing, instead of confronting the truth; it was finally over....


I had stated that I loved him unconditionally, yet I realized that if I truly had, when he asked that specific question, I would have been happy for him, in his quest for a love he felt he could attain, deal with, and did not consume him as our had done.


So, for the last couple of weeks, I have been literally ruminating on the word love, how we as a society use it, and what the word actually means. Most often in life we surmise that love is supposed to not only make us feel grand, but elevate us to the point of being almost intoxicated and unthinking. Countless times we as humans never equate love as being unconditional, because we have no notions of what that truly means. Love to us is very restricted, and time and again narrative to what we will and will not accept from others. We see love as what makes us content, what revolves around us, and for someone else to come in and take that from us, twist it, then leave; leads many to contemplate that love isn’t worth it, is counterfeit, unkind, untrue, and should be about what makes me, the individual satisfied.


  By the same token, copious times people equate love with monetary possessions, “what someone will or will not do for them”; that the out of kilter sense that if you love me you buy me possessions is a testament to “Love” in and of itself, with no intellect of what Love truly is.
Today’s society has conditioned its people to believe that if “you love me, you’ll buy me this, you’ll take me here, “you’ll do this or that,” because that means you truly love me.
This for me as a reasonably sensible, educated intellectual being, is hard to fathom.
It is these individuals that I feel the most compassion and sympathy for, because I believe in life, they have never truly experienced the true magnitude of love, so they substitute that feeling with material possessions, equating it with love. If you only love someone when they buy you things, do for you the individual alone, with no return affections, except to say buy me this, or buy me that, then your concept of love is askew, twisted, and has nothing to do with love itself.
Love is not equated with the material, it is empathy, considerate, and puts others first before their own needs. It is just as well not, just because someone buys you material things whenever you ask, also doesn’t mean they truly love you as well.

The unending love, which says, “No matter what you do in life, I love you unconditionally, because of the person you are, not the one you try to be.”
That true love is patient, kind, sacrificial, uplifts, breaks chains, loves when love is not wanted, is steadfast in its endeavor to change hate to love, sees what others refuse to see, believes when all belief in person or thing is lost, stands when all others have departed, is there no matter the wrong they’ve been dealt, is there unending, does everything in its power to prove itself, without wealth or fame, and is absolute.
For lack of a better example, it can be equated to Christ. The unconditional love he felt for a people, who not only did him wrong, but negated everything he believed, loved and cherished. Yet, in the end he still loved them strong. 
This is what true love is, and very few experience it, or accept it because it can be overwhelming, and they deem it something they don't want to put forth the effort in.
True love is unending work to maintain the love, relationship, and spark alive; in today’s society of hook-here…hook-up there, very few people seek it, because it takes commitment, sacrifice, loyalty, and a desire to love beyond compare; so we continue to be this throw away love society which subsists on a malnourishment of the supposed bullshit hypocrisy of insidious worship with “getting mine”, “big booty hoes”, money, sex and fame, all of which we equate as true.

    
And lastly......




For those of you who do love unconditionally,love hard, stay true to love no matter what, the nae sayers may call you stupid, dumb, or crazy…
But I call you Christ like.
If anything in this blog resonates with you…my readers…I would ask…

Who have you truly Loved Unconditionally lately?

Sometimes…the greatest gift you can give someone to make them change…is love…
I personally…am holding onto that belief…

Webster’s’ defines it as such: noun
Affection with no limits or conditions; complete love
A profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person.
 Feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend.
Person toward whom love is felt; beloved person
Used in direct address as a term of endearment, affection, or the like

A love affair; an intensely amorous incident; amour.

A Bright New Future on the Horizon...& I'm Happy...

Author Alexandria Infante.
This is the Teaching between Midnight and Dawn Series



So,

Now that we're done with the mess of this morning, and Sarah's snafu. yes the things she said were true, I gave him money, brought his kid diapers, cooked for him, fed him, gave him a place to stay when he had none, took him places, brought him things; but that doesn't make me stupid, it makes me giving, and maybe just a bit naive. However, it still didn't give her the right to do what she did, especially getting me involved after it was finally over.                                                      



onward we go,
I may be leaving early for New York ( so fricken excited) so you may actually get some tidbits of NYC, my two new besties, and more city life inbook 3 and you ladies will finally get your happy ending lol.

                 
Also...

I'm about to start a new Contemporary, that centers around online dating, speed dating and the whole lol. If you can believe it, that's how I met Max hahaha. So there are some perks to it. But with the constant controversy over the IDNBIWYseries, I am so ready to leave California now; so I'll know by the last week of this month for sure, so I'll keep you guys posted. It would be fun to do a going away party lol.
We can post it live on the blog so you guys cane see, or at least upload videos.



And if you don't remember anything else from my blog, my post, or me as a person, just remember

Who Knew Facebook Could be so Cut Throat???

Author Alexandria Infante.
This is the Teaching between Midnight and Dawn Series



So,

I had seen the hundreds of thousand groups on facebook. As well, I actually belong to a few. I thought it fun, and a creative way to meet people with like interest, and just chat about books, authors and the like. I actually joined a few, and had a great time. However, with teaching, writing, trying to get out book 12 in the TBMD series, then shadow writing on five other books at the same time, I opted out of a few of them.

I was even offered by one of the groups the position of what they called an admin, but with finals coming, student papers and final grades due, I declined, because I knew there was no way I would get what I needed to do done, and still be there to co-mingle with the members.

Anyway, finals were over, I was assed out of a summer position by a tenured Professor, so I had the summer off. Well, in completing book 12 of the TBMD series, I thought I'd treat myself, and began spending more time on facebook ( code for lazy summer bum looking to waste time lol), and as I perused old Fb, I noticed that although there were plenty of Contemporary Romance groups, both IR and not, there weren't any IR Paranormal, nor were there an IR Historical, so I decided then and there to create my own :)

This was quite fun, and for once I got to feature what I wanted. I always kind of felt that the Contemp groups that I belonged to, weren't really interested in Paranormal, and they always found it weird, and unnatural.
So, it was never given the spotlight like the Contemporary genre. That truly annoyed me, so I said why not do my own "thang" and did so.

My groups were going great, had people actually asking to be added, and I thought cool; until the last three weeks.

The groups are climbing in numbers, however, someone keeps reporting the admin, which is me, as a spammer, so I am constantly denied access to my own groups! Is this insane or what? It happened for three weeks straight, and even now I am not allowed to participate in my own groups, and had to actually get people I know to govern over the groups.

"WAY TO GO FACEBOOK!"

Someone sent me a private message, and stated that haters will hate, and they believed that it was people from the other groups, and if I truly think about it, it just may be possible. It is sad, when people can't lift each other up, instead of tearing one another down.

Anyway, stop on by and check us out. We still have fun, despite the haters :)

FaceBook Groups:
Interracial Reads
Interracial Paranormal Romance

Just a small update...


Almost finished with Hidden Shadows book 12 in the TBMD series.
After that I'll be focusing on the Historicals for a bit. I have 3 in the works, so that's where I'll probably for the rest of the year. Book 4 in the ALFT should be out by November, and I'm thinking I'll actually do a sequel to I Don't Need You, but not sure yet.

Been staying away from the reviews, I'm learning guys, but it's a slow process lol.

But that's pretty much it for now.

I should have some reviews up for you guys next week. Had a bunch of good reads over the last month, so I'll start posting them now that the semester is over.

Author Blog Hop!!

Author Alexandria Infante. 
 This is the Teaching between Midnight and Dawn Series...



Blog Hop!

Well Hey Every One. We had a lil snafu!
We sorta forgot that one of the Greatest Holiday's was near, so with Easter being Sunday, it threw us off; but have no fear, the Blog Hop is still going strong. I will feature three Interracial Authors for the next three Mondays, this idea comes from IR Author Lolah Lace (http://lolahlace.blogspot.com/) who invited me to hop along, so to speak. So come on and join us :)

We'll start off with mua! Lol, and I'll state a little bit about me, why I love Interracial Romance so much, and what Inspired me to write in three different genres.

So, drum Roll Please.......



I’m from California born and raised; however I have traveled a bit in my life. I started out as a chef, and held onto that career for 15-years, but I knew it was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Not to mention I developed bursitis in my right shoulder.  I have a master’s in English Literature/Art History; with a Minor in Mythology and History. I do in home teaching as well as being a tutor. I have taught every subject in between, except math lol. I even spent a summer teaching the Fire Tec Class, when all I basically know about fire; is stop, drop and roll lol.
I has five amazing children; Matthew 27, Blazhia 26, Soleil 22, Micah 17 and Sora 12. Matthew, Blazhia and Soleil are in college; so I spend most of my time with Micah and Sora when I’m not writing. I’ve always loved vampires, werewolves, witches, and the things that go bump in the night; and it just rocks my boat to be able to write about them. I remember I was obsessed with Laurell K way back when, and read everything she wrote; until one day I was like, “I can so do this,” lol, and the rest is history as they say 20 books later.

What prompted me to began my quest to write Interracial Romance, was because of the lack there of.  Multiracial Young Women in a genre that spreads across color lines, and is a multi-billion dollar industry each year. I remember growing up lost at times, because I wasn't quite sure where I fit in, in the spectrum of race. I was bullied by certain races, because I was too Latina to be African-American, too African-American to be Caucasian, too Caucasian to be Native American, and so on, so it was sometime hard as a teen and a child.
I love Paranormal, Contemporary, and Historical Romance, but I didn't see myself reflected in the works that I read.  Moreover, if I did, it was a side character, a supporting character, or a villain; so I thought I’d write my own. Being multi-racial (Puerto Rican, Cuban, Native American, Irish and African-American) I wanted to see a character like me, and the fact that this is rare spurred me on. Authors like me (Interracial Romance writers, or what is more commonly known as IR authors) tend to get pigeon holed into one specific genres like Minority literature, Latina, African-American, or Ethnic, who hardly ever move out of that; and I think this is completely unfair.
I hoped by writing what I believe the genre should encompass, people would see the book for the story and negate the race of the character; that being, anyone could place themselves in the shoes of the character, not just someone of a minority background. 

      Why do I write what I do, lol, you know, I am not sure lol. I’ve always been fascinated with Vamps and Weres since I was a kid, so I guess it would only be natural that I would write it. I am not the “normal” person lol, whatever that means; so to write in this genre fits my personality perfectly. Convention has never been one of my strong suits, and I often get in trouble in everyday life because I stay as far away from convention as I can lol. I like the weird and unconventional. I’m a Sci-Fi freak too lol.
The main reason that I write the way that I do, is because I love myths from all over the world. It’s my goal to show that many of us Americans are very ethnocentric, and we tend to turn our noses up at something we deem not necessary or indicative to our own well-being or space in this realm; so we have this tendency to negate its value. I want to show people that culture is relevant to everything in life, and people should be proud of where they came from.
I also love the aspect of the Interracial Romance, my mantra, “True love sees no color lines, is pure in its truest form; and is only tainted when narrow-minded haters infiltrate it and make it something it is not.” Love is Love, as the marvelously talented Boy George once said; and I believe he is completely and totally on point. I feel like whether you're a Caucasian guy who has a thang for Sustahs, a Japanese guy who has love for Latinas, a Mexican guy who just can't get enough of Arab women, or an African- American guy who just loves him some Caucasian women. Who Cares, as long as “you do you” and you feel comfortable in your own skin. My ideal of love, includes er' body!

A Gorgeous Hot Yummy is just that.

You can Find My Books Throughout This Entire Blog Lol. Have Fun...

I Love it When Minorities Shine...

Author Alexandria Infante. 
 This is the Teaching between Midnight and Dawn & A Lite Farie Tale Series

So, 

every one knows how much I love Paranormal Romance! It was because I was obsessed with Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake and Meredith Gentry series that I wanted to write paranormal romance myself. I especially loved the fact that I could write Interracial Paranormal Romance. I love what i do, and it just floats my boat to be able to write romance; especially since my romantic life is often in shambles lol! 
Anyway, I love it when I see new news tidbits, and just a new take on the Paranormal circuit.
I'm sure most of you are familiar with the movies Series Under World right? I loooove this franchise, and even though it fell off a bit, to me it is still the best Paranormal Series out there, because Vamps should never fricken "Glitter".

Anyway with the franchise they have put out four actual movies, and I have dug each of them...

So, my point in posting this lovely lil tidbit, was to ask you if you knew the author of not only the books, but the movies as well...is African-American! Not only is he a script writer and director, but he stared in the first two movies. I would like to introduce to those of you who do not know this...

                                         Kevin Grevioux! 

Who, as you can see...is African-American.
He is most known for his role as Raze in the Underworld movies. He graduated from Howard University in Washington, D.C. with a degree in Microbiology with minors in both chemistry and psychology, afterwards attending graduate school working towards a Masters degree in Genetic Engineering. Grevioux also began taking screenwriting and cinematography classes as well, and after his first semester of grad school had finished, he moved to Los Angeles to began to work as a writer in earnest. To this end, he has written several scripts in various genres and has written and directed two short sci-fi films: Indigo and Thanatos. He also started a graphic novel company called DarkStorm Studios in 2003. As an actor, he has been seen in such films as The Mask, Steel, Congo, Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes remake, and the 2003 vampire vs. werewolf film, Underworld.

Underworld was Grevioux's first produced writing credit. He came up with the original concept/premise and wrote the original screenplay along with director Len Wiseman, launching the Underworld franchise. He appears in the film himself as a lycan, Raze, and returned as the character in the Underworld prequel Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, which he will also be adapting into a comic book mini-series. He also expressed an interest in telling more Underworld stories in comic form if this proves successful.

Using Romeo and Juliet as an archetype, Grevioux based Underworld on his experiences with interracial dating and the tension that it often causes. He also brought a scientific element to the world of vampires and werewolves by basing vampirism and lycanthropy on a viral mutagen rather than the mysticism typically associated with these two mythic creatures. This idea has been used before Underworld, for example in I Am Legend by Richard Matheson, written in 1954, as well as in the Blade franchise.

Early 2006 saw Grevioux form two comic book imprints, Astounding Studios and DarkStorm Studios. Grevioux's Astounding Studios imprint was to focus on all-ages titles such as Valkyries, Guardian Heroes and The Hammer Kid. The Darkstorm Studios imprint was a more mature line, including the books Alivs Rex, Skull and Guns and Uzan, The Mighty.
Grevioux's voice is distinctively deep. In the commentary track of Underworld, he relates that during the promotion and launch of the film, many fans asked him if his voice had been altered by computer, and were surprised to learn that it had not been.
Grevioux wrote Marvel Comics’ New Warriors volume 4. Grevioux also wrote Adam: Legend of the Blue Marvel, a character he created years ago as a young teenage comic book fan. The miniseries was drawn by Mat Broome and Roberto Castro. He is also in the process of writing a story featuring Lee Falk's characters The Phantom and Mandrake the Magician, co-written with Mike Bullock. He will also be writing ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction for Red 5 Comics.

On December 2, 2009, Grevioux hosted a pilot episode for a concept series, Monster Tracker, on Discovery Channel.


He sold the original screenplay for the film adaptation of his Darkstorm Studios graphic novel, I, Frankenstein, to Lakeshore Entertainment, which also produced the Underworld films. The story follows the original monster of Victor Frankenstein who is the only force that stands between the human race and an uprising of supernatural creatures determined to overthrow the world. Filming began on February 27, 2012.

So, will there be a 5th Underworld...


Unfortunately, Underworld: Awakening was pretty much seen by many as a critical flop in 2012, but it made around $160 million worldwide; so it’s not too much of a shock to hear that Underworld 5 is in development.

According to Bloody-Disgusting reports, Screen Gems is actively developing a new Underworld film, tentatively titled Underworld: Next Generation. They suggest that the latest sequel will follow Eve, the daughter of Kate Beckinsale’s leather-clad vampire Selene and Scott Speedman’s confused vampire/lycan hybrid Michael, who became the central plot point of the last film.

Those discussing returning cast should note that Speedman did not return for Awakening, and was replaced by an unconvincing stand-in.

The site states that the hunt for a writer and director is now on, but that Len Wiseman is returning as producer. 

So we see, that Mr. Grevioux is pretty much done with the series, and on to something else. I love it when Minorities take over Genres that have for decades run by Caucasian only. More power to you Kevin, I can't wait to see what you come up with next :)
