Take an Eco-Friendly Trip to Bloodstone Castle With Author Mirella Patzer

In these days of sky high gas prices, the most reasonable way to visit new places is through the pages of a book. Many authors go on book tours and that requires extensive travel and many times, you still won’t be able to interact with the author. But, there is a new option which is eco friendly and it allows anyone with access to a computer to interact with authors. It’s called the virtual book tour and Mirella Patzer’s tour begins Monday June 2, 2008.

Bloodstone Castle – Travel Back to Medieval Italy

In medieval Italy, two men fight for one woman who possesses the secret to an ancient, hidden Roman treasure. Bloodstone Castle stands sentinel on the shores of the Ligurian Sea. Secreted somewhere in its dungeons is an ancient Roman treasure of immense value. Contessa Morena of Bloodstone Castle possesses a mysterious bloodstone pendant, the only proof the treasure exists. Since childhood, she has been promised in marriage to Duke Ernesto of Savona. Ernesto is a desperate man, a gambler who has lost his family's fortune, a man who resorts to murder, not once, not twice, but three times to keep from paying his debts and to hide his dirty secret. Marriage to the lovely Morena will make the treasure his and restore his power and desperate circumstances.

After the brutal murder of his father, Duke Amoro of Genoa swears two oaths. The first is to avenge his father's death. The second is to honour his father's dying wish and wed Morena of Bloodstone Castle and end the violent feud with between their two families. He severs his affair with his mistress, Laria, and departs for Bloodstone Castle to propose to Morena. But Morena refuses to marry him. Her life thrown into chaos, Morena must choose between obligation and honour, truth and lies, good and evil. She must honour the betrothal her father arranged with Ernesto. Amoro continues to try to convince Morena otherwise. Ernesto arrives at Bloodstone Castle to claim his bride, but finds Amoro there. The two men confront each other with much animosity.

Meet Mirella Patzer - Your Guide on This Adventure

To fulfill a life long dream, she began writing several years ago and has never looked back.

She writes from her home in Cochrane, Alberta, Canada, surrounded by her husband, two college-bound daughters, and a rambunctious little grandson who frequently interrupts her work with a variety of unanticipated, yet humorous calamities and interruptions.

Bloodstone Castle by Mirella Patzer




Bloodstone Castle by Mirella Patzer - Virtual Book Tour June 2008

Bloodstone Castle stands sentinel on the shores of the Ligurian Sea. Secreted somewhere in its dungeons is an ancient Roman treasure of immense value. Contessa Morena of Bloodstone Castle possesses a mysterious bloodstone pendant, the only proof the treasure exists. Since childhood, she has been promised in marriage to Duke Ernesto of Savona. Ernesto is a desperate man, a gambler who has lost his family's fortune, a man who resorts to murder, not once, not twice, but three times to keep from paying his debts and to hide his dirty secret. Marriage to the lovely Morena will make the treasure his and restore his power and desperate circumstances. After the brutal murder of his father, Duke Amoro of Genoa swears two oaths. The first is to avenge his father's death. The second is to honour his father's dying wish and wed Morena of Bloodstone Castle and end the violent feud with between their two families. He severs his affair with his mistress, Laria, and departs for Bloodstone Castle to propose to Morena. But Morena refuses to marry him. Her life thrown into chaos, Morena must choose between obligation and honour, truth and lies, good and evil. She must honour the betrothal her father arranged with Ernesto. Amoro continues to try to convince Morena otherwise.

Ernesto arrives at Bloodstone Castle to claim his bride, but finds Amoro there. The two men confront each other with much animosity.

Then, when the murdered body of Morena's father is brought home, Amoro helps her with his burial, then her and takes her to his home in Genoa. He is fiercely protective over her. This angers Morena at times because she insists upon her independence. While she is conducting an act of charity, she notices Amoro's men following her. As she tries to escape, she falls from her horse and is taken back to Amoro. When Amoro agrees to allow Morena full independence, they set a wedding date.

Laria and Ernesto meet and together they plan to separate Amoro and Morena.

On the day of the wedding, Morena falls into the clutches of Ernesto. Amoro arrives to rescue her and the two men agree to battle each other - winner gets the girl. Ernesto cheats and Amoro is held prisoner. Morena realizes her love for Amoro and to save his life, agrees to marry Ernesto. Laria is free to pursue Amoro again. But Amoro continues to refuse Laria. When Laria learns that Ernesto plans to kill Amoro, she aids Morena in a daring rescue to Amoro and his men.

In medieval Italy, two men face each other with ruthlessness and intensity. Enter their world of splendour and depravity, of passion and wickedness. It is Italy's most dazzling and dangerous age, and as Duke Amoro of Genoa and Duke Ernesto of Savona match wits and cunning, it is a dance the death to decide which one of them will win the hand of the beautiful Countess Morena and the hidden treasure of Bloodstone Castle.

Meet Mirella Patzer - Your Guide on This Adventure

Books are one of Mirella Patzer's obsessions, especially those that pertain to medieval eras and with Italy as a backdrop. To fulfill a life long dream, she began writing several years ago and has never looked back. Since then she has published several short stories and completed two novels with several more novels in various stages of completion. Her fascination for women of history and Italy is often reflected in her work, blogs, and website. When she's not immersed in research or writing or blogging, Mirella works as an editor for Enspiren Press. She writes from her home in Cochrane, Alberta, Canada, surrounded by her husband, two college-bound daughters, and a rambunctious little grandson who frequently interrupts her work with a variety of unanticipated, yet humorous calamities and interruptions.

Learn About A Toolbox For Your Own Healing Journey


UPDATED Information added below -

May 12-16th, Dyan Garris is travelling the blogs-o-sphere to promote the toolbox she created for all people who want to participate in a healing journey. I'm still adding blogs to this tour. If any of these topics interest you, please contact me as soon as possible.

For anyone who hasn't visited Dyan's website, the address is http://www.voiceoftheangels.com/

For this tour, I'm looking for blog owners who would like to learn more about the topics listed below. Dyan has built a "toolbox" of products to help any person who would like to make major changes in their life. She has created the tools that are needed to make a healing journey.

If you would like to discuss any of these topics on your blog for a day, I simply need you to send me 5-10 questions for Dyan about any of her products. I can send you additional information about these products to help you create questions.

These are the topics that we want to focus on during her tour in May:
1 - Manifesting
2 - Self empowerment
3 - Patterns and belief systems
4 - What really gets in the way of people manifesting and acquiring what they want
5 - Music as a way to unblock energy and as a healing tool
6 - Meditation, mindful meditation, and connection in general
7 - Chakra balance and energy field
8 - Angels and angel cards
9 - Psychic ability
10 - Integration of mind, body and spirit and why its so important

This tour will be between May 12th and May 16th. I'll also schedule some blogs a couple of days before and a couple of days after that week. Dyan is also available for radio interviews - contact me for more details.

In return for your participation, your blog will be promoted through the online tour schedules and promotional messages that are posted for each blog tour stop. This can be a good way to generate new visitors for your site and it provides links back to your site is a variety of new places on the internet.

I can be reached at nikki_leigh22939@yahoo.com and the available slots are filling fast. I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Spring is a time for renewal and rebirth. It is the perfect time to learn how to begin your personal healing journey. Most people have things that they want to improve and to change in their lives. We have the ability to change things and to improve our situations, but we need the proper tools to make it happen. Dyan Garris has assembled a toolbox with the tools that are needed for your healing journey.

One of those tools is her book Money and Manifesting. This book takes you beyond the Law of Attraction and shows you how to actually MAKE the changes that you want in your life.

Over the last couple of months, I've worked extensively with Dyan Garris and have learned so much from her. I was very excited when she decided to offer a teleclass to give us additional details which compliment the information in Money and Manifesting.

Feel free to tell any friends that want to make positive changes in their lives about this class. There's still time to get your copy of Money and Manifesting - and to sign up for the teleclass.
