The Strip runs through the unincorporated municipalities of Paradise and Winchester, which are south of the Las Vegas city limits.

The Vegas Strip is roughly a 4.2-mile stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard South in Clark County, Nevada. A hefty slice of the Strip has been appointed an All-American Road, and has an indicative earmark of being a picturesque nocturnal route.

One of the chief observable characteristics of Vegas’ majestic depictions is the theatrical architecture.

In 1959 the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign was assembled precisely 4.5 miles beyond the bounds of the town perimeters. Presently the symbol is approximately 0.4 miles south of the southernmost entrance to Mandalay Bay.

“The Strip” merely denotes to the expanse of Las Vegas Boulevard that is amid Russell Road and Sahara Avenue, a range of 4.2 miles. Conversely, the nomenclature frequently denotes not simply to the road but correspondingly to the innumerable casinos and resorts that pepper the boulevard, and to real estate which are not situated on the motorway but in the vicinity. The idioms Resort Corridor, Resort District or Strip Area, are occasionally bandied to designate a loftier topographical region, consisting of landscape a mile or more away from the Vegas Strip

Cover Reveal: A Scandalous Deception

Dilemma, dilemma. A Scandalous Deception is me as Darianna James, but from a marketing standpoint, Diane Morasco has some pull. Who would have thunk it, huh? My name is not just a trademark, cookie cakes, it is a brand. A friggin’ BRAND! UNBELIEVABLE!

So, for promoting purposes only A Scandalous Deception will have the name Morasco attached to get the buzz rolling! I do not like it, but I am going to zip it because I don’t want to do all the social media gobbledygook as DJ. As DM is more than enough. Whew! And I must stay true to the DIANE MORASCO BRAND. Eye roll and giggling. Bananas. Flipping bananas with nuts! Wink

Let me first start off by saying thank you to whoever believes in me and my writing to do what you have done. I haven’t the faintest clue as to whom the little angel…or angels are who have mentioned me to not one, but three individuals this week. If you are one angel, please know you have knocked me for a loop. I owe you a few celebratory shots of Jack! With that said, I also have to say this is so darn damn overwhelming to me and my little girl inside. Cookie cakes, I am rather dizzy with this news. I can guess until the cows come home (love that adage) who may have sang like a canary, but I am not going to. Whoever my angel is or my angels are, if you wanted me to know, you’d have mentioned it to me…not just before my answer is due with a yes or no to speaking before a crowd about my new escapade and Maverick. And not before the deadline to entering a Writing Festival. And the eve before to boot. Breathe, Morasco, BREATHE!

I have been so swamped I had to rearrange my schedule this week and take a few days away from the computer because my sinuses (from all the traveling) decided to have a friggin’ party. What did I do? I decided to listen to the universe telling me to just do my thing on the go. It was a total mobile week. Hmmm…seems while Morasco chills my magical little sprites were busy buzzing in the universe on behalf of me and my new journey. Thank you, thank you, but ya gotta give a diva a heads up…’cause I am better giving surprises than receiving them. Reason? Not familiar territory. And I also need at least three days for prayer, meditation, and to hit the asphalt with my kids to ponder things. God and the universe is definitely all over this. Last night I finally caught up with the correspondence while I was supposed to be resting, but couldn’t and therefore caught up on emails and heard the messages. And after the triple ripple surprises, I was out in the rain with my girl H processing it all. I told my sinuses to fall back. And my answer? Yes! I decided to go for it. I am not sure what the heck I am doing, but I am taking the plunge. First up, I will be speaking about the voyage Maverick’s presence has set me on. Let me say this to all of you inquisitive folks who want to know about Maverick. He is the inspiration for my Darianna James excursion, my children’s literature moniker (can’t even breathe this name out in public to keep the kiddies away from the Notorious Morasco. wink.), The Maverick Chronicles, The Maverick Collection (tentative titles), and three other series. My team and I are defining where to place it. It isn’t DJ’s story. It is Diane Morasco’s, but it may fall under the children’s moniker because one was coined Middle Grade this week. I can’t believe I have delved into the third tier in children’s lit – MG. I wish I could just shout from the rooftops, but I can’t. I can proudly say my range with children’s literature is rather vast from picture books to MG to Young Adult. And it is what I was created to do…give hope to children that there is more than what they even imagine in their precious hearts. Growing up, and still today, I always believed there was more than what I was entrenched in. My children’s realm is what I shield most and what heals the wounds of my childhood. I do wish that there will come a time when I can just say it all stems from me, but for now, I won’t let the two worlds unite. And with release dates being scheduled, it is going to be one immense adventure.

From the reaction and excitement from those I have shared my Maverick writings with, cookie cakes, you are lovin’ them. Thank you. Grinning.  I am so honored and my insides are chocolate caramel chip gooey warm. Wow, to know my Maverick creations, my Maverick works are causing a stir is ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! MY MAVERICK WRITINGS (how friggin’ surreal is that? Mega surreal!) are being called tantalizing, gripping, hot, erotic (gotta adjust to that one, cookie cakes) and are piquing a lot of interest is MINDBLOWING!!! Extremely. And causing tears…which is messing with my sinuses. Not what I need. So not what I need. I am so blessed. Thank you everyone for believing in me. I will admit, it is foreign to have so many in my corner, but it is about time. I am so tired of doing it all on my own. And all of you will always be ingrained in my heart. With that said, honey cakes, we still need to keep this quiet. And if you stumbled here, please keep it on the hush until I am ready to announce it publicly. Pretty please with cherries on top. Saucy wink! I am still behind the scenes as time permits putting it all together.

I know all of you wonderful and encouraging angels are getting antsy. Who am I kidding, you ladies are curious nosey as hell to get the scoop on the muse himself. Giggling! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!!! You women are scandalous!!! Scandalous! Hahaha! Sorry, cookie cakes, but Maverick is as sheltered as the children’s sphere. I will say this he is one EXQUISITE CREATURE! Mmm…Maverick!  Okay, enough! Is it hot tonight? Where are those ice cubes? Global Maverick-ing! Hahaha!!! Thank you to everyone who is lovin’ this side of me…I am as well. I am living my dreams! And I have to acknowledge Maverick’s presence in my life has opened me (ladies, ladies, ladies, tisk tisk) up, elevated me to a level beyond even my imaginings, and stripped me bare. And everything I am right now is a result of a chance encounter. And I will always be grateful beyond measure.

The reality A Scandalous Deception drops December 20th is causing me to get really woozy. Woo! Diana Layne you may have to stock up on smelling salts.  Liz Lipperman thank you for saying my fans (how bizarre is that) will follow my foray as DJ. Saranna DeWylde for gently reminding me Diane Morasco is a BRAND…if it wasn’t gentle…I’d be in seclusion under the covers hearing the waves ebb and flow. And thank you to my angels: Parris Afton Bonds, Saranna DeWylde, Ellen Byerrum, Braxton Cosby, Diana Layne, Nic, Tommy, Drew, Butterfly, Gordon, Joya Fields, Jennifer Stanley aka Ellery Adams, Kaye, Stacie, Trevor, Kyle, Jamie Leigh Hansen, Liz Lipperman, Stephan Labossiere, Dawné Dominique, Lynda Renham, Sean Ringgold aka Cocoa Sugar Bear, Zac Efron, the Meriwether’s, JCG, and Maverick. It means so much to me to have your sustenance and for lighting the torches for me on my trek.

And for all those who have been asking about my email signature quote, thank you.  And the answer is, yes, you better believe Maverick inspired it.

“The only way to achieve pure joy, absolute serenity, and unconditional love is to risk being stripped bare.” – Diane Morasco

And finally what a delicious and electrifying thrill I got when the fantastic Dawné Dominique said, “Who’s this Maverick? OMG! My heart was pounding reading your post.” WOW! High praise for Maverick…and for me since I took his essence to create this ENCHANTED world. And what I can’t do to Maverick…Dallas will! BADA BING. BADA BANG. BADA KABOOM! Wicked laughter!

HARD! Oh, and makes me fight it, say WTF?! WTF?! WTF!!! And makes me fall to my knees in prayer, meditation, and gratitude. And finally surrender to the emotions. When it comes to gratitude and blessings, Maverick, your presence and existence in my life is what I am most grateful for and blessed with. The past two days with you have been a whirlwind of lessons, life, love, growth, grief, and gratitude. You have cracked me wide open, brought out the best in me, and soften the edges. If I ever get misdirected (I am only human and perfectly imperfect) and question God’s existence, all I have to do is place my hand on my heart and know He exists because of you. You are THE MOST EXQUISITE CREATURE IN ALL THE LAND! I love you with everything I hold inside. And thank you for wanting to make me happy. You did! You do! And thank you for illustrating the definition of what a real man is. Oh, precious angel, I don’t need a Dragonslayer, silly, I have a Maverick ;-]. And that is how it was destined. Oh, one more thing, you make blushing sexy! :p And precious angel, thank you for shining the light on the darkness.

Always,

Yes, I did spend Valentine’s Day with Chris Jericho!

How did I spend yesterday? With Chris Jericho and Mark Setrakian from Syfy’s Robot Combat League. Not many women can say that, but I can! Whoa! Thank you, Chris, Mark, Syfy, B, G, NBCUNI, and everyone else for being so darn wonderful to me. I am so blessed and filled to overflowing with gratitude. FUN time ;-]

Shhh…

Diane Morasco, Darianna James,Hey, Cookie Cakes! If you landed here, it must be on the searches under Diane Morasco and All Things Morasco. Welcome! Welcome! I am in the process of putting the world of Darianna James together, so I’d appreciate it if we keep all of this on the hush. Guess what?  You have a scoop. Yes, a scoop, you are one of the few who know about Diane Morasco and Darianna James being one and the same. I don’t even have this posted on my website, but I may have to post that I have a secret as a tease because I did mention it on FB last week. However, I didn’t on Twitter. Grrr! I am so not a social media butterfly. I prefer to LIVE my life. Social media does have its place, but I am just too reserved for my biz to be out on the cyber streets. Know what I’m saying, Honey Bees? There is enough out there swirling and I want to keep the universe green, so I am doing my best not to use up too many electric ions. Let’s face it; I have enough electricity coursing through my being, so I can step back. Meow

As for the world of Darianna James, I plan on dropping the info on the 26th; Although, I have been thinking about dropping clues and revealing it officially on 03/03/13. So, who knows when the reveal will be. Hey, I’m a diva and I can change my mind. Giggle.

So, if you want to poke around, go ahead and have at it—cyberly that is. Wink

In the meantime, Honey Cakes, I am going to handle things behind the scenes. Again, thank you for dropping by.

Remember, Cookie Cakes, embrace your moments!

Go for it. Take those chances. Defy those odds.  If you achieve them, you will be joyful; if you fail, you will be prudent…and you will know what avenues to take to tackle them again and succeed!

Inspired by a Maverick

A Scandalous Deception, Diane Morasco, Darianna James, I want to thank everyone for your encouragement, excitement and love with this new journey. I am so blessed. Since the beginning of the year, I have been keeping the world of Darianna James sheltered and have only shared it with my heart family. Darianna James was created after conversations with my Warrior Goddess, my Butterfly, and Anne Rice. I listened, I cried, I prayed, I ran, I hiked, I meditated, I shared, and I got ticked pissed. I didn’t want to take on another nom de plume. I mean nothing against plums, I love them in fact, I just wanted to write as Diane Morasco. My children’s books aren’t written under Diane Morasco because I want to keep the two worlds separated. I just wanted the world to know Diane Morasco is more than the sum of her parts. I have created a life separate from my DNA and it is sacred. Still, I knew there was a message and I had to sit still and listen.  I cried, I prayed, I ran, I hiked, I meditated, I shared, and I got ticked pissed. I listened. I asked God to send me a name I would love, be proud of and remember. Darianna James was created. Darianna because I have always been daring. James is to honor the most exquisite creature God has ever created. And he is the man who unearthed the sand I was standing on and poured cement under me. My cherished friend, Parris Afton Bonds, lovingly tells me it must be a curse and a blessing to be Diane Morasco. As I write this tears cascade and those words echo. I have been building the world of Darianna James judiciously as time permits. I am even attending a workshop for WordPress to steer as far away from my Diane Morasco side, but I am who I am and it spills over. I am navigating away from the beach theme, but, yes, there is water as my Puget Sound header showcases. And it is a night scene since I am nocturnal. Wink

I don’t mind sharing my professional life, but my personal life isn’t something I’m open to sharing. I didn’t sign on for that. I am just a spitfire creating and doing my thing. My personal life is just that, my personal life. What I do is what I do. My family and friends didn’t cosign to this lifestyle and I don’t want them anywhere near it. Believe it or not, I am not Wonder Woman; although I can lasso darn good. giggle. I need a sanctuary to call my own. I have only a soupçon of those I trust and that circle barely hits 21. The line in the sand (see beach inferences) was crossed today. Please do not ask about Maverick. Do not ask for me to do an interview about him. Please do not ask to interview him or the two of us together. Please give me this moment to savor. I have not known happiness in my life until he barreled in. All I knew was sadness and with his absence my old friend sadness has decided to visit. I have an interview going live this week with someone I treasure and I answer one question about Maverick. And that is it. I gave a tease on FB about my secret and I plan on revealing to the public about my journey as Darianna James on the 26th.  I don’t ask for much of anything, but I am asking for discretion. I want to cherish every single moment I shared with Maverick. If you want to know what he is like, you will when A Scandalous Deception is released. It’s no secret I created my hero James Maverick for my heroine Dallas Ewing because of his presence; and she deserves to know what a genuine man is too.

I am so grateful for your kindheartedness, love, and sustenance. I am extremely blessed. My little girl inside is as excited as hearing a cat meow and a dog bark on Christmas Eve when that is all she yearns for from Santa.

Hugs and fish kisses! xoxoxo
