Release day: Unlucky for Some
Today is the official release of Unlucky for Some by Carla Caruso (ebook, HarperCollins). Here’s the blurb:
Sassy Italian-Australian newspaper reporter Raffy has been ultra-superstitious ever since her ex-fiancé saw her in her bridal gown before they got hitched – and left her at the altar.
But as luck would have it, one of her new assignments at Press Publishing is a feature series challenging some of the most common superstitions in the lead-up to Friday the thirteenth.
It’s her worst nightmare – not helped by the grumpy, yet annoyingly handsome cameraman accompanying her to film the daily online videos for the newspaper’s site…
Carla dropped by today to tell us little about this book:
While I can’t cook to save my life, I’m a true Italian in other ways, particularly being quite superstitious! I have a thing about touching wood for luck and I never walk under ladders or put shoes on the table. And Friday the thirteenth gives me the heebie-jeebies. That’s what helped inspire this novella about an ultra-superstitious heroine (with her own reasons) who is handed a media assignment that makes her test her luck and challenge her own beliefs. (Previously, I also worked in the media as a newspaper and magazine journalist before becoming a stay-at-home mum to one-year-old twin boys!)
