Dear You by Derra Nicole Sabo Book Tour and Giveaway :)
by Derra Nicole Sabo
Dear You is a lovely invitation into Derra Nicole Sabo's world.
A wonderful opportunity borne out of a complex and challenging experience, to recall the good times with loved ones, the chance to express the rarely spoken profound specifics of what binds friends and family together.
This is a heart-warming collection of letters to loved ones that explores the wonder, frailty and extraordinary qualities of friendship, family, love and life.
Ok…ready? I’m going to jump almost 30 years into the future, well it would be the future for you since we don’t know one another yet. So wait, hold up, I guess I’m starting you off in my present... Yep, we’ll go with that. Less confusion. I’m beginning you at my present and we shall travel back together through the madness. Sounds good. Three months before the big day (aka turning 30), I wrote several letters to my family and friends reminiscing down memory lane. Each one kissed with personal touches of memorable moments, lessons impressed into myself and lessons that I hope I impressed into their hearts. Confessions released (I figured it’s safe to release some evidence due to the statute of limitation now being up), laughter turned into spontaneous smiling and tears stubbornly shed. All these snippets of my life and mind locked away in a long white paper rectangle labeled “My last kiss goodnight”. Now I’m assuming that after reading this you have a possible conclusion swimming around your brain and if that conclusion is that I wrote out letters to my family along with my “last wishes” then you’d be right. A moment of my heart palpitating led my white knuckled hands to make sure that my loved ones were prepared
just in case the Grim Reaper and I decided to throw an afterlife party. So here I am sharing a few shining pieces of these letters about the people that protect my stitched scars. Embrace its honesty and pass on its contagiousness.
As someone with anxiety, writing is my way of speaking. When my verbal skills fail, my pen excels. I have always had something to say to the world and to the humans residing in it, I just could never get my mind and mouth to be on the same level. So, I picked up a pen and haven't looked back. I have a message for you. A message for my family, my friends and to all the beating hearts. Dear You is a letter personally written, from me to you.
