Blogs

After years of blogging on the Blogger platform, Diana has made the switch to Tumblr. If you’re unfamiliar with the social-networking site, it’s a micro-blogging platform that allows you to delve deeper than Twitter (though she loves those 140 characters) while not giving your readers the expectation of a lengthy post (like, Blogger).

So please follow her on Tumblr (and Twitter, and Facebook, and Goodreads, and whatever else is developed by the time you read this). And enjoy the embedded Tumblr posts here. If you want to view her full Tumblr page, here’s the link:  http://dianarwallach.tumblr.com

      Continuing my #YA horror reads, and I’m on to #annadressedinblood. Great concept with a cool twist on ghost hunting. QOTD: What’s your favorite horror novel?

      You know you’re old when you request Michelle Obama’s biography from the library and you receive the LARGE print version, and you think, “Nice! I won’t need glasses!” #thisis40

      Nothing better than a dark and stormy night for a @mysterywritersofamerica panel discussion. Had a great time chatting with Nancy A. Hughes, Lisa Regan, and Jane Kelly, and all the brave souls who came out to the library in the storm!

      In my favorite part of the writing process, where I go line-by-line and try to make every sentence better, every verb stronger, and every metaphor more interesting. This is where I try to hear the rhythm of the words. It’s also where I learn a million ways to write “walk.”

      Rereading some of my #kindle notes on the horror novels I’ve read recently. One note for The Exorcist simply says, “Ok, this is messed up.” 😂
      Of all the possession books I’ve read recently, that author WENT THERE.
      Can you guess what scene I wrote that about?

      Here’s me laying on my hammock reading, on the first perfect 75° weather day. And here is that hammock 20 minutes later, when I got up to eat lunch. That is a hawk pulling a snake out of a snake nest, and then going on to eat all of her babies. I’m not in the city anymore… #holycrap #snakes #hawk

      Finished the book, so I had to rewatch the movie. Within 15 minutes, I Googled whether the author wrote the screenplay, because I’ve never watched a film so true to the book. The vast majority of dialogue is word-for-word from the novel. The answer is yes, #williampeterblatty wrote it and won the #oscars for the #adaptation.

      Hey guys! Did you know that I will be doing a reading and signing this Saturday, March 23, at 2:30 PM at the Ridley Township Library! Who says you can’t go home again? It is so meaningful to do this signing for the final book in the series, in the town where I grew up, at the library that started it all! Come out and see me!

      Sometimes I get so caught up in the “work” of it all that I forget to step back and look at the accomplishment. Shout out to my husband for reminding me that today I publish my 6th novel. Wherever I go from here, I will always have that.
