SUNNY: BLOG TOUR, GUEST POST & GIVEAWAY - “Hollywood Homecoming (Red Carpet Series, bk 3)” By Sacha Summers

Today we welcome Sacha Summers to celebrate the release of her latest Hollywood Homecoming, book 3 in the Red Carpet Series. In addition to a summary and giveaway, she is also sharing with us what makes it to the top of her reading list.  

GUEST POST with Sacha Cohen  

Welcome, Sasha for joining us.  You are a writer, mother, wife, when you have a smidgen of free time, what do you gravitate towards as a guilty pleasure book?

I’m an equal opportunity reader. Seriously, if someone says I MUST read something, regardless of the genre, I’m game. I do have some favorite authors that I know will never disappoint me: Julia Quinn, Stephanie Dray, Susannah Kearsley, Diana Gabaldon, Karina Cooper, Laura Kaye, Gina Maxwell… and so on. :)

You write both Paranormal romance as well as contemporary stories, what is your favorite/easier series to write? 

As far as which is easier to write for me, it’s a toss up. Sometimes I’m in ancient Greece, happily lost in the smell of the air, the feel of the ocean breeze, and surrounded by gorgeous, self-absorbed Olympians. When I’m writing in Hollywood, I’m just as there. I try to delve into the glamour while keeping the characters accessible. Since the contemporaries are written in first person, I really do feel like I’m there. 

To me, each series is very different. The PNR series is, I hope, an emotional adventure with an epic feel. Think Gladiator or 300 - I used the soundtracks of both when I was writing. The contemporaries are lighter, more everyday and familiar. I listened to Nora Jones, Michael Buble, and Jack Johnston. I hope both series touch and leave them emotionally satisfied.

If you could stick to only one genre, would you and if which one? Why?  

Honestly, I could NOT stick to one genre! No way, no how. I think writing in various genres helps keep me creative and inspired. When I feel myself hitting a wall, switching series or genres can really give me that boost I need to keep going. I’m very connected with my characters when I’m writing and I don’t want to lose them, silly as that sounds.

Thank you so much for spending time with us.  We look forward to this next book. 

Thanks so much for having me!

Why did that word rank above the rest? Helen loved her family and understood they wanted her to have the real love they’d all found. It’s just that she’d found her someone special and learned to live without him. She’d been too young for the quirky, idealistic doctor-off to save the world-to notice. And, really, if she had it her way, he’d never know how she’d felt. Now, he was one of her best friends, a pen pal, losing him would be too much.

Seeing him at their parents wedding, Helen realizes the horrible truth: she still loves Joseph… which wouldn’t be so bad if she wasn’t in the situation she was in. 

But she was. And her secret will change everything. 

Will it destroy hope for a Hollywood happy ending too?

Sasha is part gypsy. Born June 9, 1974, stories have always played an important role in her life. 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.
