Catch a Falling Star and See What Ebook You Won!

August is the month of falling stars. Catch one of our stars, and you will win a free ebook!

Each number on the stars above represents a Second Wind novel — even numbers for romance and chick lit; odd numbers for mystery, mainstream, science fiction, and adventure. So, do you feel lucky?

Since these are only virtual stars, you simply pick a number from 1 to 50 and post it as a comment below this article or email it to us at secondwindpublishing @ gmail.com (no spaces before and after the @, of course). We will send you a coupon for a free download of the ebook assigned to that number. The book might not change your life, but it will make your summer shine. (You can pick a number someone else already chose, they don’t all have to be different numbers. One number per person, please.)

Best of luck to you!

Lucky Charms…

No, I’m not talking about cereal today (though I do love a good bowl of that marshmallowy goodness), I’m talking about real good luck charms, and what you can do to improve your luck in a few areas of your life!

This week’s issue of Woman’s World magazine has a whole spread on this particular topic, but I’m going to choose the three lucky charms that I think are most accessible…

1) Create Harmony with a Rainbow!
“When the vibrant colors of a rainbow pass through the eye, they trigger the release of hormones thatcorrect imbalances in your body, which, in turn, can pump up your energy, calm you and ease any pain you might be feeling,” says certified color therapist Leah Bruns. 

Well, rainbows aren’t just popping up in the sky everyday, so create your own! Hang a crystal in your window, and according to the Irish, you’ll be blessed with good luck every time light creates a prism in your home!

2) Attract Money with Greenery!
I think everybody would like a little more of this stuff! The Irish tuck shamrocks and clovers into their lapels or hats to receive blessings all year long. And in Feng Shui, it is believed that basil plants and bamboo shoots boost wealth for their owners. Plenty of studies prove that “seeing greenery boosts optimism, confidence and concentration – all three keys to success – by lowering the levels of the stress hormone cortisol.” (Which, by the way, is what causes us to hang on to excess belly fat, so having greenery in your house is a two-for-one!)

 

 

3) Get Happy with a Fountain!
Inviting positive energy into your home is as easy as putting a little (or big, if you want) fountain by the front door. According to Feng Shui, it draws “good spirits and gladness to you.”

“The sound of rushing water lulls you into a state of relaxation, while the water droplets produce negative ions in the air, molecules that are study-proven to trigger the release of feel-good serotonin in the brain!”

So, on your shopping list this week, make sure you have Crystal, Green Plant and Fountain! Then sit back and watch the good times flow 🙂
