Special Guest…Carly Phillips!

Today I am thrilled to welcome a very special guest…Carly Phillips!
Carly is one of my favorite authors and so I was thrilled when she agreed to be a guest!  Her latest release, Lucky Charm, is in stores now!

Now, here’s Carly blogging about luck and her new series…

I don’t have my own good luck charm, per se, but I do operate on the presumption of superstition in some ways. And sometimes, thankfully, luck pays off for me!  I definitely don’t like to presume good things will happen, I like to hope. I’m afraid of jinxing something. Can you really do that? I rarely tempt fate.  But it’s an interesting concept, isn’t it? Luck?

LUCK is fickle. And yet many of us believe. When I ask myself why, I realize it’s because of HOPE. It’s the possibility that Lady Luck will step in and pick us up that provides a ray of hope. LUCK causes us to play the lottery, pick up a heads up penny, read fortune cookies, and many more crazy, superstitious things.  It was the concept of LUCK that drove the idea for my new LUCKY series, starting with LUCKY CHARM.

Fortune hasn’t been so kind, however, to the men in the Corwin family. And Derek Corwin is the latest to cross her path. Long ago, as revenge on a Corwin who stole her son’s fiancée, a witch proclaimed an eternal curse that every Corwin male who married for love would be destined to lose his woman and his fortune. Derek thought he could outsmart the long-standing Corwin curse by breaking up with Gabrielle, his first love – and marrying someone else. Now, divorced and broke, all he has left is his teenage daughter and a healthy respect for ancient sorcery. But then Gabrielle returns, determined to defeat the curse and rekindle their passion. But will her stubborn streak and her unwavering love be the lucky charm Derek so desperately needs?

After Derek comes Mike Corwin in LUCKY STREAK, June 2009 and Jason Corwin in LUCKY BREAK, October 2009.

I wanted to extend LUCK to my readers so I’ve created an on-going contest which encompasses all three books in this series for those who read them. I call it  the “Lucky You” Contest. Put your own lucky charm to work for you! In 1 page or less, tell me about the one special item that brings you luck and why it holds that “lucky” place in your heart! Six lucky winners will receive a special gift!  For more information on how to enter, visit www.carlyphillips.com.

So, what do you all think of LUCK? Does it exist? Are you at all superstitious? Or do you meticulously plan?


Thank you, Carly for that wonderful guest blog.  
So, readers, how about answering Carly’s questions…

And don’t forget to look for Carly’s latest release, Lucky Charm, in stores now!
(Coincidentally, it is also one of the books up for the vote in November’s Book-of-the-month poll).

    I think luck does exist, but agree that it has more to do with hope. I don’t think I’m that superstitious, but I will throw salt over my shoulder. Can’t wait to read Lucky Charm! It’s currently next in my tbr pile after The Undead Next Door!

  2. Oooh thanks for buying, LizaI I hope you enjoy 🙂

  3. Helen says:

    I don’t think that I am superstitious as for luck I believe some are lucky some are not I class myself as being lucky I have my health and a beautiful loving family but haven’t been lucky enough to win lotto so as I can stay home from work and read LOL.

    I will be adding this book to my must get list I really like the sound of it and I love books in a series.

    Have Fun

    Hi – Carly,

    Your book is definately on my TBB list. As for luck – I believe in it and it’s kind of like fate if it’s meant to happen it happens.

    But I’m also of the mind that people can make their own luck and that there can also be bad luck.

  5. Helen, family, friends, health all is part of LUCK I think. I am VERY lucky in that respect too and I think it counts most of all 🙂

    Liza, hope is definitely a component of luck! At least according to me, LOL!

    Greta, yes, luck and fate are intertwined. I agree!!!!!

    I’m so glad you guys joined me here. It’s fun 🙂

  6. Mo Boylan says:

    Do I believe in luck? Yup! Luck comes in unexpected responses to things we can initiate like love and health and family. Even in good jobs or in friendships. I agree that it comes from HOPE but FATE also has a hand in it I think.

    Like it was a matter of FATE and some great timing that Carly got the LUCK of the draw when Kelly Ripa chose THE BACHELOR 😉 But Mo always knew her pal Carly would have a great writing career 😉

  7. Teresa W. says:

    I’m not superstitious but I do believe in having Luck!

  8. Oh I love Carly Phillips! I’ve bought almost all of her books. Her Hot series is my favorite though. I like to think i believe in luck but I also try to plan too…. just in case!
