Although the number 13 has traditionally been considered unlucky, it has proven to have the opposite value for Santa Claus this year, as Gift of a Servant, the new book which reveals his mission of love, is awarded its 13th honor, a silver medal in the holiday category of the 2013 Moonbeam Children's Book Awards. (All 13 Awards are listed on giftofaservant.com.)
Unlucky numbers aren't a first for Tamara Amos, owner of Mystical Rose Inspirations, the publisher of Gift of a Servant. Her company's address is PO Box 13, the feast day of the Rosa Mystica (Mystical Rose) is July 13, and Mystical Rose's Federal Tax ID has a 666 in it.
"I think it's funny," says Tamara who claims she isn't a superstitious person, "especially since the name Mystical Rose Inspirations originated in the concept of bringing new creation out of chaos, modeling the mystical creation of our rose-like galaxy. I believe in meeting the challenges of the post-modern world with anticipation and creativity, instead of resorting to fear, quarreling, and outdated methods. That's what I did with Gift of a Servant. "
Gift of a Servant brings a new approach to the issues of commercialism, Christmas, and Santa Claus. In forty pages (another meaningful number), Amos restores peace and purity to a beloved holiday, devillainizes a celebrated saint, and explains the Christian message of Christmas in a fictional story told in verse. This combination of originality, inspiration, classical story-telling, and quality seems to be the reason that Gift of a Servant is fairing so well in competitions and reviews.
With a degree in Theology and a background in ministry, education, and business, Tamara Amos is an award-winning author, publisher, and inspirational speaker, who brings a fresh perspective to modern issues. She owns and operates Mystical Rose Inspirations.
