Favorite All Time Present

Guest Post by Author Sasha Summers

Everyone who’s ever written a Dear Santa letter raise your hand.

Uh-huh, it was a big deal when you were growing up, right? It was in my house. We’d sit down, write them together, (don’t ask for more than 3 things) and then we’d take them to the mail box. When my kids were old enough to write them, we did the same thing. The town where we were living had an awesome mailbox just for Santa downtown so we’d drive down and put it in the box together.

But the best Christmas present I ever received was one week late. My first baby, my precious baby girl (almost 16 now) forever changed my life – for the better. I had contractions on Christmas and spent a lot of time walking around to get things moving. But she wasn’t ready yet. And even though she didn’t make her debut into the world until New Years Eve, she was the best Christmas present ever!

When I was writing Jen and Gunner’s story I knew I wanted a present to play an important role. No babies, they’re not ready for that, but something that would change their lives for the better. Something symbolic, that represented their commitment to starting over. I think I nailed it, but you’ll have to tell me. I’m not going to tell you what it is, don’t want to ruin the surprise. But let me just say, it’s a doozy.

What about you? Did Santa ever answer your letter? Get you an especially memorable Christmas present? Or has your favorite present been one you received as an adult? What was it?

About the Author:

Sasha is  part gypsy. Her passions have always been storytelling, Hollywood, history,  and travel. It’s no surprise that her books include a little of each. Her  first play, ‘Greek Gods and Goddesses’ was written for her Girl Scout troupe.  She’s been writing ever since. She loves getting lost in the worlds and  characters she creates; even if she frequently forgets to run the dishwasher  or wash socks when she’s doing so. Luckily, her four brilliant children and  hero-inspiring hubby are super understanding and supportive.

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
