Sneak Peek Sunday AND the Lucky in Love Blog Hop


Feeling Lucky?
I am. I’ve recently launched a new novel — The Witchy Wolf and the Wendigo (Book2 Eluwilussit)
Because of that, I’m doing two things at once on my blog today — the Sneak Peek Sunday AND the Lucky in Love Blog Hop.

Sneak Peek Sunday BannerFirst, here’s my Sneak Peek –
Setting the Stage:
It’s the morning after Ash’s declaration of love for Livie. He’s also confessed he’s been living in her house as the wolfish dog she accidentally hit with her car. In this scene, he tells her the ancient shaman who murdered his wife and unborn child 3000 years before still lives.

“What do you mean, we must leave?” So distracted since Ash had come to her door last night, she’d completely forgotten Cora’s words. She remembered them now. He told me to go home and pack. We’re headed north to the reservation. She asked suddenly, “Ash, why did John and Cora go to the reservation?”

“I sent them there.”

Olivia considered those words. While Ash looked at least ten years younger than John, he was actually an elder — elder was an understatement — and John had the deepest respect for his elders. If Ash had sent them north, he’d go with little or no questions asked. She, however, needed answers. “Why?”

He covered both of her hands in his. “Remember the story John told yesterday, the story of my life as it once was? There was a man—”

“Aiyanna’s murderer?”

Ash nodded. “Long ago when I knew the man, his name was Eluwilussit.”

So to finish my discussion of three, as represented by the three-leaf clover, I did a little research. From Poseidon’s Trident to Odin’s Trefot, significant threes have always been around. The ancient civilizations were full of them. Just off the top of my head I have: three Fates, three Furies, three Graces,
the three-headed dog Cereus  guarded Hades, and the three trials of Jesus.

The number three figured prominently in Euclidian geometry too. This is the mathematical system attributed to the ancient Greek mathematician Euclid. In other words, we wouldn’t have triangles without three. I won’t even go into pi or Fibonacci. 

On the fun side, the number 3 is the mystical, magical, and spiritual number featured in many folktales. Aladdin gets three wishes from the genie. The queen only gets three guesses to figure out Rumpelstiltskin’s name. Goldilocks takes advantage of the three bears, and the three billy goats gruff do a number on the troll. Three little kittens lost their mittens, three blind mice go wandering, and we can’t forget that Winkin, Blinkin and Nod went to sea, or the Butcher, Baker, the Candlestick maker all took a bath in a tub. What’s more, we all know what happens to the three little pigs and their shoddy home construction.  Fun stuff, three.

As far as three goes. I experimented with three  in my own writing  and painted a broader portrait of love in Loving Leonardo. My Victorian trio’s tale continues with the soon-to-be released Loving Leonardo – The Quest.

  1. Loved the snippet. I can’t wait to read more. 3 isn’t the only number that keeps popping up in the Bible and myth… so does 7 and 40. Emm… maybe I should play those numbers more often in the Powerball…LOL

  2. Thanks Sara. I’ve found that multiples of three show up all the time too. Weird.

  4. Hi Rose! Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you!

    Loved your blog post — I’ve always been fascinated with the mystical meaning of numbers and have especially focused on 3, 7, 9.

    I’m very lucky (finally!) in love! Happened when I least expected it.
