Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: The Characters Within by Sunshine Rodgers

Book: The Characters Within

Author: Sunshine Rodgers

Genre: Inspirational Fiction / Romance / Humor

Release date: July 30, 2020

Brittany Myers is stuck. She hates her role as a Cheese Crusader to Florida’s popular Cheddar and Such theme park! She is sick of the guests, the heat and working at the Fun at the Parm Attraction which features the animatronics Patty the Pretzel and Peter the Breadstick.

Her only relief from the monotony is writing chapters in her upcoming novel “The Carnival Ride” where she tells stories with theatrical scenes about her co-workers, her fears and the struggles she faces day in and day out.

With the help of her work family, the man of her dreams, and her best friend, Brittany discovers that the magic she is looking for was right inside of her the entire time.

Inspirational books with Humor are a good genre and I don't really give them the attention they deserve. The Characters Within by Sunshine Rodgers is the latest book that I had the opportunity to read. 

Brittany Myers has been working at a Florida Theme Park for many years. She was excited about her job when she started working there as she had hoped she could one day move up and become a manager. She no longer enjoys her job as it is the same thing day after day and she is bored. The one thing that keeps her going is to continue to write chapters for a book that she hopes to be published in the near future. The book is a humorous look at things her co-workers do on the job and also her fears and frustrations she deals with on a daily basis. Will Brittany see her dreams of being a published author come true? 

WOW, this book is short, only 114 pages, but it sure packs a lot of fun and love in it. I really LOVE that Brittany keeps her focus on her future even when discouraged by her current circumstances. The LOVE and Encouragement from her Work Family, Best Friend, and Boyfriend is a wonderful thing. Brittany felt the encouragement and love from those around her and it opened to eyes to her future. The book is one of encouragement, love and knowing that dreams can be reached and never to give up hope on your dreams. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Inspirational Humor with Romance. GREAT BOOK!

More from Sunshine

”This book is about…me. I spent over 5 years working at a theme park, barely surviving the mess, the mayhem and the craziness that often occurred on-stage and backstage. I used that immersive experience to write my novel,  “The Characters Within.” This story is about Brittany Myers, a Cheese Crusader who has to wear this silly costume and repeat these corny sayings and hear the same annoying tunes playing over and over again. But she really wants to be an Author. 
And that’s where I found myself. At a backstage break room, writing this book as Brittany was writing hers. I have included 35 real-life people as characters (those who survived the madness with me!) and together we invite you to join us…as I now lift the curtain to “The Characters Within” – a Book-within-a-Book, Part Musical, Part Love Story and 100% pure entertainment!”
