A...WOMAN IN MOTION WITH HAIR AS DARK AS NIGHT HER EYES WERE LIKE THAT OF A CAT IN THE DARK... SHE WAS A GYPSYWOMAN... she danced round and round... from the fire her face was all aglow... she was dancing... dancing... waiting for the RISING SUN... loving caring relationships are like THE RISING SUN...we are nourished by their warmth...we are energized by their strength...we grow in their light...we find shelter and solace there...they are our sanctuary... born in the sign of the sun, i am a true LEO-love the sun and its hot orange red fire-passionate in and about everything i do-i believe in instant chemistry charisma love/lust at first sight-in the magic of the eyes and the beauty of the soul-in the instant recognition familiarity in meeting someone from a past life and in the knowledge that we might meet in a future life-i believe that we are each ageless and flawless-i believe in the beauty of the moment-the whisper of yesterday-the hope of tomorrow-the power of forgiveness for even ourselves-the absolute and total beauty of love---[credit to brian hyland and curtis mayfield]

 travel to ESPERANZA and into yourSELF
For starters, I will begin by telling you what ESPERANZA is NOT - yes, what it is NOT - now I do not ever like to begin anything with a “negative” of any kind - however, in this case, with this book, it is the only way to proceed - so here is what it is NOT:

ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical work of fiction!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical suspense novel!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical thriller!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical science fiction!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical paranormal read!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical historical novel!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical mystical experience!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical love story!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical life after death book!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical reincarnation story!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical spiritual journey story!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical time-travel book!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical spirit world trip!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical mystery!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical metaphysical instructional manual!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical book on spirit possession!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical tourist guide book!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical ghost story!
ESPERANZA is NOT the average or typical saga of the struggle between the good and evil!

ESPERANZA is ALL those things!  


BUT, there is absolutely nothing whatsoever average or typical about this bookNOTHING

ESPERANZA is the extraordinary tale of two strangers who meet under extraordinary circumstances in an extraordinary setting [a place in the Andes called ESPERANZA which means “hope”] and whose paths lead them on an even greater extraordinary journey - a journey filled with mysticism and adventure and love - love beyond mere physical love - a love that “transcends time and death” and an adventure into the unknown, the unlived and into a life beyond death, where the two of them hold the key to the time-old mystical battle fought among the living and the good and the bad spirit worlds -

In ESPERANZA you will meet and come to know the beautiful native people whose magnificent ancient Incan heritage is alive and well today!

In ESPERANZA you will walk the “...shadowed, cobbled streets of...this...old town...where your...eyes must adjust to the antiquity, the brilliant colors, the poverty...where your senses...don’t know which cue to follow - the scents or the colors, the touch of the past, the music that energizes the air...or...the taste of the foods...”

In ESPERANZA you will come to know in a familiar way the intriguing characters involved in this magnificent story - them and their families - you will come to think of them outside the covers of this book - you will think of them as you go about your daily routine - you will think of them!

In ESPERANZA you will not only follow Tess and Ian and Dominica and Ben on their own journeys, you will find yourself making your own personal quest into this world, the other world, and into yourSELF!

Above and beyond all, ESPERANZA is a mesmerizing tale of mystery, mysticism, adventure and love - and HOPE - in a setting you will long remember and a tale which will leave you not just wanting more, but needing more - of the work of its author, TRISH MACGREGOR!
Available at Amazon!
So, stay tuned for the sequel!!!

[Just as an aside, I’m also contacting the Trish to let her know of my availability for playing either of the main female characters in the movie!   Oh, yes, this has to be a movie!  See you in the theatres!!!]
Most of you are by now very familiar with our friends and neighbors here in blogland, Trish and Rob MacGregor, http://ofscarabs.blogspot.com/.  Their last book, The 7 Secrets of Synchronicity is now available at bookstores everywhere.  In the event you’ve not yet read this great book, you are doing yourself a disservice.  Leave here and go immediately to your nearest bookstore or click over to Amazon and get your copy of this one, too.  Now.

As an aside, if you are not a regular blogger here and you are wondering why the name MacGregor sounds a bit familiar to you, it could be because they are both award winning authors whose non-fiction books include subjects of dreams, astrology, yoga and animal symbolism and paranormal phenomena such as UFO’s.   Rob MacGregor has appeared on several major television network channels and also wrote Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and six other of the Indiana Jones original novels.  The fictional work of Trish MacGregor is replete with subjects of time travel, micro-chipping of animals and people, vanishings, parallel existences, governmental involvement and cover-ups, and more.  Check them both out at Amazon.  Do it now - don’t wait.

Suzi Smith said...

errr.... i guess you're a fan of the MacGregors, eh?.... i really hadn't noticed, you'll have to stop being so subtle about it gypsy, lol!... i can already hear himself saying "another few books suz??"


hi johnina - yes, you definitely should try the macgregors - check out their blog - and their books! ;)


oh, well, subtlety is certainly not one of my many virtues, suzi, and i've no real interest in changing any of that so best just fasten your seatbelt over here - it'll probably be a very bumpy ride! ;)

and about himself, well, a girl's just gotta do what a girl's gotta do - books and all, right?!! ;)
