This morning I felt compelled to stop by the battlefield and just relax. So, I took my breakfast and went to my favorite place (which is shown in the above picture). It was quiet and when I looked up at Big Round Top, it was almost as if I was a part of it. I have been coming to this battlefield since I was 5 years old (50 years to be exact). I don’t know why. I guess it is where God planted me. In elementary school, I used to walk for miles to the nearest library. I only took out books that had to do with history (especially George Washington) and that were only Pulitzer Prize winners. So perhaps, it was destiny that kept Gettysburg so much a part of my life.
But, Summer Ray isn’t just about Gettysburg. Shhh don’t tell the Civil War Soldiers that. LOL! It truly is a story of Redemption and why I felt the need to change the entire series to Summer Ray – The Redemption. There will be Parts I thru ? But the title of the series will no longer be based on the book titles. There will be mention of the books, but they are now taken out of the film or TV Series titles. It remains to be seen just exactly how this series will play out. We have since changed our minds about keeping this only for the big screen. We can reach more people just sitting on their own couches; or having them watch us on their phones during lunch hour; on a plane and definitely in 3rd world countries via the Internet as well. Our ulitmate goal is to “Light the World.” We cannot do that if we do not adapt to the changing of the times. In the film industry, times have certainly changed and have gone digital. I may have been disappointed at first. But I now see the wisdom in going TV/Internet/Cable. It makes more sense. We reach more people.
At the moment we are working on the new breakdown sheet, budgets and business plans. Regardless of how this series is shown, the paperwork still has to be done. I want to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. For us at Summer Ray, 2018 is truly our Breakout Year. We look forward to bringing you a fascinating story of mystery, love, romance and history that also has a supernatural suspsense twist to it.
With much adoration and appreciation,
