Today I’m participating in the Three Wishes Blog Blitz, hosted by author Juliet Madison! From 2nd to 6th September you’ll have the chance to win some awesome prizes at all the blogs participating in the blitz, including mine. All you have to do is follow my instructions below for winning the prize I have on offer, and then you can click over to Juliet’s blog to enter her prize draw, and see the list of all other blogs taking part and enter their giveaways as well. How cool is that? Why is it called the Three Wishes Blog Blitz? Juliet’s new romantic comedy release, I Dream of Johnny, is about three wishes, a high-tech genie in a lamp, and one very unfortunate typo that proves magic isn’t all it cracked up to be…
Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have the wish I wish tonight…
I’ve wished for many things in my life, starting with the Tooth Fairy. Back then, I believed in magic and fairies at the bottom of my garden. Everything was possible if I only wished hard enough.
Then I grew up and life events knocked some of the stuffing out of me. For a few years.
I married and had children and suddenly the world was full of magic again, only this time, I was creating it for my children. There were fairies at the bottom of our garden and a friendly blue dragon who lived in the duck park. He was a shy dragon, but he existed because my children believed in him.
So did I. You see, through creating a world full of magic and wonder for my children, I rediscovered the power of belief and of wishes. Even if I was the instrument for making their wishes come true; because I had the power to make their wishes come true.
Nowadays, my wishes are different—a lie-in on a weekend, a visit or phone call from my children, a new publishing contract... Mostly, these wishes are within my power to achieve for myself. Sadly, I can’t wish for better health or a happier outcome for my dear sister’s husband. Some wishes are beyond our reach, even when I wish it could be otherwise.
But I can grant your wish for a little relaxation by transporting yourself to another place. If you’d like to be in the draw to win an e-book of my novel, White Ginger (set in Hawaii), leave me a comment—where would you like to spend two weeks next summer, and with whom? Competition closes 12 pm Friday 6 September.
(Sorry, I’ve got dibs on the All Blacks; they’re staying at my hotel as I write this post!)
