Update: Our giveaway winner is Kristine Radgman. Congrats!!!
When I was a little girl, I wished on every star that I saw. I looked for leprechauns. I chased rainbows. I believed that monsters waited under my bed, and I also fully believed that werewolves roamed under the light of the full moon. I would often go out and search for said werewolves.
I stayed awake late at night, looking for the tooth fairy.
I hunted for elusive four-leaf clovers every St. Patrick’s Day.
I made up my own spells, convinced that I could truly work magic.
Then something…changed. I didn’t wish on as many stars. My magic wand got a bit dusty. Life came along, and I found myself seeing the ordinary more and more. Magic started to drift away.
I hated that.
I write paranormal romances because I want to think that there is more to this world than just meets the eye. I want to believe that wonders are out there. I write paranormal romances because I want to imagine.
My seven-year-old son wishes on every star that he sees. On St. Patrick’s Day, he sets a trap for leprechauns. He runs around the house, using his Harry Potter wand, absolutely convinced that he is working magic.
My wish today is that we all see a little magic in our lives. Don’t focus on just your everyday routine. Don’t get bogged down by the ordinary. Imagine. Dream. Let wonder come back to you. Tonight, when you go outside, find a star and make the biggest wish that you can.
Dream big. Keep your magic.
And, hey, why just focus on wishing tonight? Make a wish right now! Leave your wish in the comments section, and I will pick one person to win a $10 Amazon.com or B&N.com gift card.
Before I end the post, I need to do two things.
First–I need to send a huge, giant, insanely big thanks to Edie Ramer. I had all kinds of technical issues today (see–ordinary life, trying to get in the way of my magic!), and she was a life-saver.
I’m also going to do a wee bit of promo, but it’s related…these sale stories are about werewolves (the kind I used to hunt under the full moon). So maybe they can help you find some magic, too!
