Get on with it already

thumb (1)

Because beginnings should start with a sunrise….

A bunch of cliches fill my mind: no time like the present; what are you waiting for; just do it, etc. I’m sure you get the drift.

So here it is.

Sascha Darlington is stepping out.

I’m sharing book reviews, a few recipes, and stories about journeys whether physical or mental.

Regarding book reviews my disclaimer is: I won’t pretend to be an authority. I will try to be honest without being nasty. I will recall the days when I first starting critiquing short stories: always find something good to say.

If you stumble on any of my reviews (or anything else here) and agree or disagree, let me know. One thing I like almost as much as books is discussing books and getting a chance to glimpse the thoughts of other people regarding those books.


And away we go …….

  1. love you intro. would really feel honored if you could look at my ” the dreaded c word” im thinking publishing it

  2. Hi Sascha,

    I hope my novel interests you! Here’s the blurb:

    Even though she lives hundreds of miles away, when Langston, who dreams of being a chef, meets Cecile, a Juilliard-trained pianist, he is sure that his history of being a sidekick, instead of a love interest, is finally over. Their connection is real and full of potential for a deeper bond, but the obstacles between them turn out to be greater than distance. Can these busy, complicated people be ready for each other at the same time? Does it even matter? Before they can answer these questions, each must do battle with the ultimate demon—fear.

    Told in a witty combination of standard prose, letters, emails, and diary entries, LETTING GO, in the tradition of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s AMERICANAH, is a long-distance love story that also examines race, religion, and the difficult choices we make following our passions. From the Great White North to the streets of New York City to the beaches of Bermuda, LETTING GO is a journey of longing, betrayal, self-discovery and hope you will never forget.

    FYI, I have recorded a CD of piano music mentioned in the book (I have a DMA from Juilliard) and my readings of the passages that reference the pieces I play (I’m a professional voice actor). So many non-lucrative jobs, so little time!

    If you’re interested in my novel, I’d love to send a mobi, pdf, or epub file.
