Lucky Charms

You know what we all need as the weather gets cold? A nice, cozy fireplace and good books to read. I recommend Stolen Luck. Author Jaclyn Weist has a new book out, and I'm down with checking it out as I snuggle under a blankie with my dog as my toe warmer. I was lucky enough to get her to answer a few questions about her new release! Here you go:

In ten words or less, tell me about your book. 
Megan is lucky until Louie the Leprechaun enters her life.

Who is this book for?
Young adults, but it's great for everyone.

Where did you get the idea? What inspired you to write it?
I had a writing group where the writing prompt was about our worst day ever. I wondered what would happen if we never had bad days. Then suddenly Louie entered into the story. It was meant as a short story but the group was upset when it ended so quickly. I wanted to see where the story would take me, and away I went!

Do you have a favorite character?
That's a tough one. I really like Megan, but I think I'll have to go with Jared.
Which character was hardest for you to write? Why?
I think Beth was, because she's not very much like me at all. 

If your book were made into a movie, which actors would play the main parts?
Ross Lynch - Jared
Kate Todd - Megan
Debby Ryan - Beth
Logan Lerman - Adam

What can we expect from you in the future? Any fun projects or new works in progress?
I have two more books in this leprechaun series. One is Twist of Luck, coming out March 2014. Book three will be submitted soon and it's titled Best of Luck. I also have a time travel/princess book based loosely on Sleeping Beauty, and I'm working on a series with a group of friends about adventures in trying to save the magic by defeating the evil in Atlantis.

Thanks, Jacklyn. Enter here for a chance to win your copy! The author is giving away 3 ecopies of Stolen Luck. Wouldn't that be a great way to start the month?  Happy December!
