Welcome Hoppers to Carrie Ann’s Happy New Years Blog Hop. Join over 200 bloggers celebrating and sharing what we want for the new year. My goal is to live life to its fullest without fear, to keep being the best I can be, learning to shine and helping others to do the same. For the new year, I am sharing my all time favorite quote from Marianne Williamson.“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
What do you want to do next year that will help you shine and become the person you dream to be or do the thing you dream to do?
Answer the above question and I will give one commenter a $25.00 Kiva loan to invest in an entrepreneur of your choice any world in the world. As you help someone else better their life in the new year, you better your own as well. The loan will return to you, once the entrepreneur is off the ground, which you can then reinvest in a new entrepreneur or use the money to do something for yourself and your family. And don’t forget to leave your email. And then please visit the other hop sites.

Fires of Justice Book Blurb
Beholden by the sacred vows of her coven, fire witch Calista Reid agrees to temporarily mate with shifter Cullen McMahan to fulfill a mission assigned by the guardians. When tall, dark and damaged arrives on her doorstep, generating enough heat to scorch a fire witch, Calista finds herself drawn to his battle-hardened body and broken soul. His pain speaks to her own deep-rooted isolation and the intensity of his hunger slakes her passion like no other.
Cullen, scarred by a past that left him an indentured soldier to the guardians, resents yet another hump-on-command assignment…until he encounters the compassionate, fearless, incendiary redhead who detonates his body and reawakens the emotions sacrifice and loss had suppressed. But Cullen harbors a terrible secret—one that reaches back into Calista’s troubled childhood and threatens the foundation of their growing bond.
