Welcome Hoppers to Carrie Ann’s Luck in Love Blog Hop. Join almost 300 bloggers celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and the ephemeral concept of luck.
As usual, I’m going to do this blog hop my own way. I don’t really believe in luck–not completely. Luck seems to show up most often when people are working hard to achieve a goal, making new friends, doing new things–finding ways implicit and explicit–to trip over that door that just had not yet been in their vision. Luck often seems to be an unseen opportunity or barrier revealed when someone marches forward with steel determination, kindness in their heart, a sense of purpose and a little Karma thrown in for good measure.
Yes, things like lotteries work on luck, but you have to be a ticket to have access to it. So even that requires an action first, before the luck comes. Still not convinced? Let’s see if I can prove it with the prize I’m giving away.
I have a fabulous group of writer buddies. We help each other grow as writers. All have published or about to publish wonderful books and stories. Like me, on the newer end, most of us having our first books within the last year. One person who comments on the question “How do you make your own luck,” chosen by random.org will win one book written by one of these authors, that I will buy. Which author will be chosen by random.org. Here’s the amazing group in alphabetical order by last name:
Luck, through random number generation will decide which new author you get to read. But they are all out there working hard to write great stories and spreading the word about them. I’m just a door that opened to help them out and you get a free book. Pretty good deal–Good Luck.
And that’s still not all….
We have TWO grand prizes. You as a reader can go to EACH blog and comment with your email address and be entered to win. Yep, you can enter over 200 times!
2nd Grand Prize: A Swag Pack that contains paperbacks, ebooks, 50+ bookmarks, cover flats, magnets, pens, coffee cozies, and more!
If you are in the market for a new shifter story, consider my recent release Fires of Justice from Ellora’s Cave.
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.
