More Information about You Give = We Give

What made me decide create You Give = We Give? 

The You Give = We Give event’s primary focus is placing a book into the hands of a stranger, into the hands of someone who may not be able to afford it or perhaps hasn’t got access to one. I want to brighten the smiles on as many faces every Christmas by placing a book into the hands of those in need, because developing a love of reading really does open many doors, whether that be writing their own story or becoming an illustrator or even becoming a reviewer like myself. A novel or picture book takes the reader into another word and has the ability to open someone’s eyes and spark a fire of brilliance into anyone’s imagination.

Blog Tour: Sarah Alderson: Come Back To Me

Welcoming to the Blog: Sarah Alderson AKA MILA GRAY

Blog Tour
June 20th Stop on the Tour Bus

NEW BOOK
Written Via Sarah as Mila Gray

COME BACK TO ME



Q & A with Sarah

Where do your characters come from? My imagination mostly, though I embellish with people I know. I recently had an insane girl (an acquaintance’s girlfriend) smash up my house - she was utterly bats hit crazy. We had to threaten the police to get her to leave - she is definitely inspiring a character in my next book (she broke my favourite vase…).

If you could live on another planet (say they are habitable) which one would you choose? I don’t think there could be another planet as beautiful as this one, so I guess I’d choose The Forest Moon of Endor so I could make friends with the woks.

What do you think, one word, about your new book – Out of Control? Drive.

Do you believe in Happy Endings? Yes! I love to believe in them, though I think happy endings are usually all about attitude and perception. 

What would your characters say about you? That I really make them work for their happy endings and like to put them through their paces.

And Lastly,

Does Writing make you Happy? If yes, why? Yes, of course, I wouldn’t do it otherwise. It’s the only thing that when I’m doing it there’s nothing I’d rather be doing.

Cheers for stopping by, Sarah Alderson
