Book Blitz - Legacy of Luck



Legacy of Luck
By Christy Nicholas
Genre: Historical fiction



Irish Traveler Éamonn loves gambling, women, and drinking, not necessarily in that order. But he’s entangled in a true mess when he falls for fiery redhead, Katie. When she’s married to a Scottish Traveler, Éamonn travels to Scotland to find her, with the help of Katie’s sister and cousin, and the magical brooch gifted by his father. Their quest takes them across the Irish Sea to the Isle of Skye, encountering war, betrayal, death. In the end, Éamonn must make his own luck.



Author Bio

My name is Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon. I do many things, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing and photography. In real life I'm a CPA, but having grown up with art and around me (my mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected me, as it were.  I love to draw and to create things. It's more of an obsession than a hobby. I like looking up into the sky and seeing a beautiful sunset, or a fragrant blossom, a dramatic seaside. I then wish to take a picture or create a piece of jewelry to share this serenity, this joy, this beauty with others.  Sometimes this sharing requires explanation – and thus I write.  Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. I do local art and craft shows, as well as sending my art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.

#BehindTheBlogger New Beginnings



  Hello everyone, today I would like to share my thoughts simply on "New Beginnings". I love being part of the #BehindTheBlogger series that we are doing every other Wednesday of the month. Love being a part of it!

  So for me personally, this year is going to be some new beginnings in a number of ways. I started out this year with a great new client that is in DFW and I'm doing really good with them. I started training with them a few days before Christmas weekend but, I officially started on my own the first week of the new year :) And so far so good! I absolutely love them and I am very thankful for them daily! At the end of the year I had gotten let go by 2 clients - 1 which I had been working for nearly a year but, he had decided that he wanted someone "in the office" so the contract with him ended unfortunately. I however, love the fact that I learned so much with him and his company (he's in the healthcare field of nurses going into homes and caring for them) and I was the one doing the billing and time-sheets. It was disappointing to see that one go but, as we all know, when one door closes another opens and in my case that was so very true.



  I am also looking forward to getting out of the "apartment" living. I've had enough of the paper thin walls here and the noisy, irritating and just all out loud at times (usually a few times a week) neighbors. When you work in your home office and take/make calls like I do, you can't have noisy neighbors and dogs etc barking in the background and yet they have made it hard for me at times and days when I need to wait to make a call because they are making too much racket! Not anymore! I am looking for us a house. We were looking forward to moving up towards the Tulsa area somewhere in a smaller town but, not sure if that will happen now with me and my work schedule and such we might just look for a better house here where we are which isn't the worse thing in world but, a disappointment considering I wanted to move closer to some of my best friends. We will just have to wait and see how it goes.

  This year I have hope for great things to come and be with each of us. I want and hope that 2017 is a less traumatic year than 2016 was with all the shootings in clubs and bombings and so forth, not just here in the US but, all over the world. I wish that the news would somehow see a way to report on the "Good" things that are going on around us. There are I'm sure good deeds and things going on all over the place, but, for whatever reason the news seems to stay informing us of all the bad things going on. That is one of the reasons that I just don't watch it anymore. I don't want to see/hear about all the bad and negative things. I want to hear about all the good. I want to hear about the good Samaritans that helped people. What about all the shelters or the churches that help others. That help them not be homeless or help them get back on their feet etc. Why doesn't the new do stories about those things? 

  I am in a place now financially where I am going to be able to pay off my car this year and I am very thrilled beyond words about that! I have never been in the position where I could do that. And for me being on my own and living on my own and now having a car and being able to pay it off on my own before its actually "paid" off means a lot to me!  So this year I will be paying it off and giving it to my oldest son for him to have and then I'll be picking out another one with my youngest son who is now 18 and he'll be helping me pick out a nice "slick business looking car" is what he said :) So we will be doing that and as soon as its paid off he'll be taking that car and then I'll be buying one for myself...considering a truck. I love some of the newer looks of the trucks with the back seats :) So I might go for that.

  So this year is a lot of new beginnings, moving to a house and paying off a car. Next, on my list is buying a home. Yes a late starter on that but, I want a house of my own and now that I am on a stable standing ground and can do it I want to build my credit up some more and then start looking for one. My goal for that is next year be where I can buy a home and then the top things on my goals will be nearly complete.

 For this year as well I am planning a trip. Probably just a kinda shortish trip about 4 days or so including the weekend. I'm going to be driving to Colorado to visit my oldest son. I love driving and taking road trips so I am VERY excited about this! Which means omg...lol I have to take a few days off of work! YIKES! lol..I work 10 hours a day 3 days a week and the other 3 days I work 16 hours a day and then one day off. So yea its going to be something to take off that many days! Not use to that!

 I hope that you each have your "new beginnings" that you have set for this year and I wish you the best of 2017!!

Much Love Always,
Lisa-Queen of Random

Meryl Streep an amazing WOMAN & actress #MerylStreep #GoldenGlobes


So, I just heard about one of my fave actresses winning the other night and giving a speech. I also heard what our so called Pres.elect said...he is just outright JEALOUS that this WOMAN has talent and she doesn't even have to try, she just has class and is admired by millions. Something I hope that the idiot (yes-calling our Pres. elect an idiot among other names!) don't admire him, because if you do admire him then I feel bad for you. Because of the person that we've all seen him be is a flipping Bully!!!  I don't want my kids nor someday my grand kids to look up and admire someone like him that makes fun of people and calls them names to what? Get attention? Pathetic!!

And Miss Julianne Moore said it best when she tweeted "When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose" thank you

Good morning! Smile - it's going to be a beautiful day!


Good morning everyone! I hope that you all are having a great day so far!! I saw this and wanted to share it :) I love that, smile and it will smile back, I believe that. Most days you will definitely see smiles on my face throughout the day but, of course we can all have a bad day now and again, after all we are human. And that includes myself. Having a bad day is just a part of living life but, smiling and just going with the flow is living life. That's what I think of it all as. 

I know that life can give us all kinds of bumps in the road, but, at the end of the day, its up to us to keep moving forward and know that whatever the issue is won't last forever or you can lay down and just stop moving all together. I feel for those that do that. I did that back in my younger days. I listened to what other's had to say about me and most of it behind my back (family) and I just learned I guess to live with it and believe what they said and that I was nothing and I would never be anything. And then one day about 4 years ago I woke up and realized this is crap and I am NOT going to put up with anymore of the crap and today I'm not!! I stood up for myself and I feel so much better about everything! I have way less stress on me from the negative bs that was said about me and the just the negative people around me. Those are no more!!! I live life the way that I want too and if you don't think that I'll make anything of myself, okay that is your opinion which by all means you have a right too. BUT it doesn't mean that I am going to listen to it and believe it!

I've been on my own for quite some time now. My family (kids and hubby) aren't all together like we use to be in one house but, we are still a family. My family that put me down and has no faith in me (mom/aunt and a few cousins) they can say and think whatever they want too and that is fine. But for me, I am living my life for me and I am enjoying it. I don't like gossip and drama! I don't talk about others behind their backs. I let them know what I think if I have something to say. With that being said I haven't talked to my mom in a few months and that was only for a couple of minutes but, I will flat out tell you what I think and feel these days if you tell me that I can't or won't do or be anything. I learned how to speak up and I am proud of that!! As I should be!! Everyone should speak up and not let anyone put them down!!
