Gift of a Servant, the original story about the meaning of Santa Claus by new author, Tamara Amos, that has hit it big this year with critics, reviewers, and readers, has just been announced a winner in the 2013 Moonbeam Children's Book Awards, bringing its tally of honors up to 13 for this year.

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

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the challenges of the post-modern world with anticipation and creativity, instead of resorting to fear, quarreling, and outdated methods.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.
