Effective immediately this blog (http://melissaalvarez.blogspot.com/) will no longer be updated. I hope you stop by http://melissaa.com/ instead!

I'm doing a huge event on Tarah Scott's blog over the next two weeks. Here's Tarah's promo for it. I hope you can come by and join us!
Monday through Friday of August 28 through September 11, Melissa will answer a SINGLE QUESTION reading per day to one lucky winner.
The owner of A Psychic Haven, Melissa was previously certified by the Psychic Society International, is a member in good standing of the Online Psychics and Divination Readers and The Ethical Readers Directory, is an approved clairvoyant at The Lotus Circle, is listed in Bob Olsen’s Best Psychic Directory and ranks in the top ten on BestPsychics.com. She is the founder of International Paranormal Fiction Month and is a Spirituality & Publishing Expert at BookPromotionNewsletter.com. Melissa recently appeared on the nationally syndicated radio show, Your Time With Kim Iverson.
As if that weren’t enough! Award winning author, graphic artist and website designer, Melissa Alvarez writes as Ariana Dupré, and currently has three novels published with Cerridwen Press: Talgorian Prophecy, Paradise Designs in the Beneath A Christmas Moon Anthology, and Night Visions, which became a multiple award winning title when published by her own publishing company New Age Dimensions. Upcoming nonfiction titles include, Handwriting Analysis To Go and Color Power To Go which will be available from The Lotus Circle. Melissa is currently working on putting her psychic mentoring program into a book.
Here’s now the contest works.
There are two levels of giveaways.
First, the daily question. Post to the blog and you’re in the drawing for a SINGLE QUESTION psychic reading. The questions will be asked and answered on the blog, so be sure your query isn’t too personal for public posting. (Anyone needing more personal help is advised to visit Melissa’s website at APsychicHaven.com.) This segment of the contest will run Monday through Friday of the two week event.
Once you’ve won a SINGLE QUESTION psychic reading you are not eligible to win another SINGLE QUESTION reading. Please, no entering under different names or different email address. Winning a SINGLE QUESTION psychic reading does not affect your ability to win one of Melissa’s books.
The second level is the books I’ll be giving away at the end of each week.
WEEK ONE: I’ll be giving away an e-copy of Talgorian Prophecy.
WEEK TWO: I’ll give away an e-copy of Night Visions.
Names will be drawn from all bloggers for that week. Remember, winners of the daily SINGLE QUESTION readings are still eligible for the book giveaways
The fun isn’t over! There’s a big extra perk, the ASK ME ANYTHING segment of this event. Throughout the two weeks, bloggers can ask Melissa any questions relating to metaphysics and writing. She can talk about anything from publishing to metaphysics. For a full description of the topics Melissa can cover, visit her website http://melissaa.com/aboutmelissa.htm .
A FEW THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND. Because Melissa and I will be coordinating winners for the SINGLE QUESTION psychic readings, winners could be posted as late as a day later. For example, Wednesday’s winners might be posted and their queries answered by as late as Friday. We will do our best to stay on top of things, but work and family schedules can hamper getting everything done within a strict twenty-four hour period. Don’t worry, we will post all winners and give away all prizes. Melissa is a pro at blogging events, so I know you’ll all have a blast.
Melissa does have several rules for the readings. They are:
~Winners of the SINGLE QUESTION psychic reading must submit a SPECIFIC question – not a broad generalized question.
~Melissa will not read others without their permission. If you want to know something about your significant other – she will not read that for you because in order to answer she’d have to read him/her.
~Melissa doesn’t read anyone under the age of 18 - even if they’re your children.
~Melissa doesn’t do medical/health related readings.
Remember, the SINGLE QUESTION giveaways are for the Monday through Fridays of these two weeks. No SINGLE QUESTION giveaways will be offered for Saturday and Sunday. Melissa has three boys—yes, three boys!—and a husband, and five horses, four dogs and even three chickens so she needs some time with them. (Or is that time to recuperate from them?) I’ll be around—a poor substitute, I know—but we can chat and discuss the posts. Are you excited? I know I am!

If you live in Florida, I hope you’re surviving the longest tropical storm ever! Is Fay EVER going to leave the state? We had two days of what seemed like hurricane force winds that blew water right into our house, flooded the roof so we had water coming down through the walls. What a pain. I spent most of last night cleaning the carpets and am finishing up today. Our farm is flooded – the horses are getting antsy in their stalls but the poor creatures have to stay inside a little longer. And it’s STILL raining here! I really can’t complain though. Twenty minutes north of us in St. Lucie county they got about 20 inches of water. They’re really flooded up there. And now Fay is coming back across the state. I just hope she doesn’t circle back down our way! That’s happened once before but I don’t remember which Hurricane it was. So to all my fellow Floridians – Stay Safe and Dry!

This coming Monday 8-11-08 at 9:00 PM Eastern Time I’ll be on the nationally syndicated radio show Your Time With Kim Iverson. I was approached by the producers to be a guest as a clairvoyant advisor during their themed segment, Metaphysical Monday. I’m going to be doing clairvoyant readings during the show and talking about my books. To listen live just click on the “listen live” link in the upper right hand side of Kim’s website and it will give you a list of the stations that have media where you can listen live online. You can click on any of the links, it’ll take you to that station’s website where you just click “listen live” again and the player will start. The call in number is 1-888-9CALLKIM. If you’ve ever wanted to get a reading with me I hope you’ll call in!
I’m posting this early because I’ll be out of town this weekend for one of our horse’s first dressage show!

When I came on to post I couldn't believe it's been three weeks since I last posted. I tell you what - summertime is crazy here! This past week I got so behind on everything. We're showing Klaske for the first time on the weekend of August 8 -9th so my trainer is putting in extra time with her and I'm out there learning because when Sarah goes back to school I'll continue to ride Klaske. If anyone in the Palm Beaches or Jacksonville needs an excellent trainer I highly recommend mine - her name is Sarah Murrell and she's absolutely great, is very knowledgable and truly cares about the horse performing at it's best. Then I had book edits come in and a slew of psychic readings. By Saturday afternoon I'd caught up but whew what a week!
Yesterday I woke up with the strangest impression. I felt like I needed to make something for three people. I don't know these people and yet this urge was so strong that I followed it through. I ended up making three pieces of jewelry knowing that the person they're for would find them. Each peice was made with white light, intention and love. I put them up on my psychic site A Psychic Haven if you want to see them. It was truly a case of me following my impressions as I've never made jewelry before.
Here's something to think about today: Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.
I don't know who wrote that but it's so true. It's easy to take out our frustrations on those that we love the most or to take them for granted. Take a moment today to just cherish the people you love and let them know how much they mean to you.

Don't shut love out of your life by saying it's impossible to find. The quickest way to receive love is to give love; the fastest way to lose love is to hold to it too tightly; and the best way to keep love is to give it away.
