A to Z Challenge 2016: Theme Reveal

Yes, it’s that time of the year again! 

The much awaited A to Z April Challenge is starting tomorrow. Over 1200 bloggers from around the world would be donning their creative hats and write every day with post titles starting from alphabet A to Z. This would be done every day in April except Sundays! 

This April, I will be participating in this mega event for a second time. In April 2015, I wrote flash fiction based on colors or the emotion a color invoked. 

This year I am lagging behind in deciding the theme. Yes, for me theme is the key. One can decide to blog on random subjects, but I think a theme makes the blog posts more structured and interesting.

My Theme for April A to Z Challenge 2016 is…

'Exploring and learning the slang/ words/abbreviations the current generation uses these days'

Well, it all started with my teenaged son calling me ‘noob’ for the past six months. Like any mother I took it in my stride, and laughed it off. I knew the meaning of ‘noob’ but it got me thinking about other such words, which are sprouting like frogs in monsoon amongst the teens and young adults. 

I think its important to keep up with the current generation. If we want them to be interested in our affairs we also need to be abreast with what is ‘cool’ in their world. So join me friends to discover the new words and 'fads' of 'Generation Y'!

I am looking forward to a fun filled April and reading the posts by other A to Zers!

Let the madness begin!

Cover Reveal :: 'His Christmas Delight' by Summerita Rhayne

Caught by Santa!

For Myra, Christmas means supporting her friends. They rallied round getting her back on her feet after she lost Pete, her husband, so she's always ready to help any of them. No matter to what lengths the challenge makes her go. Only she didn't expect to find Santa almost catching her in her wrongdoings. Then she finds that the handsome Santa is Jay, her old high school friend. Now he's changed from a gangly geek to an attractive stranger. After missing out on the dating scene for a long time after losing Pete, she feels the first stirring of desire. But Jay is playing hot and cold, refusing to admit the attraction sizzling between them.

He’s back in Goa just for Christmas

Jay knew Myra as his best friend's girl. Now Pete is gone, but Jay is finding difficult to let go of the scars he picked up in Coast Guard service. He’s home only to help revive his brother’s toy shop. When he finds himself making excuses to stay, he knows he’s crossing the limits he’d set himself. What’s the purpose in taking this further when he knows he cannot be the one to give her the happiness she deserves?  But no matter how hard he tries, the scorching flames of wanting only seem to get stronger. How can he keep on denying the attraction between them when she insists on coming close?


Meet Summerita Rhayne 

Summerita Rhayne loves to write sensual and emotional romance. There's no knowing when some quirky - or sometimes even not so quirky - happening in daily life might trigger her right brain and then she's off craving a new story. She loves writing characters who learn and grow and find their way out of their troubles and emotional hang-ups. Hot, sensual heroes and sassy but sweet heroines mostly fit the bill in her stories. She also believes that a touch of humor never goes amiss in a book.

She divides her time between family, job and writing - and loves winding down with music, movies and the internet!
