Stolen Luck and Giving Books for Christmas

Sixteen year old Megan Crenshaw has everything going for her until the day a leprechaun shows up on her doorstep and steals all her luck. Not only that, he follows her around and wreaks havoc in her life. With the help of her friends, Megan must get her luck back before he manages to destroy her life and the lives of all those around her.

I had an opportunity to read this book before Jaclyn's publisher picked it up. My thought at the time was this just had to picked up. And it was. The story is charming and imaginative. The idea of a leprechaun stealing a girl's luck sucked me right in.

My father used to joke with me when I was a little girl that I was an accident waiting to happen, so I sympathized with Megan. I loved how determined she was in the face of her adversity. No way was Megan going to be kept down (literally since she kept tripping and falling). Who knew luck could play such a part in one's life?

To celebrate the launch of Stolen Luck, three ebook copies will be given away.

Jaclyn is an Idaho farm girl who grew up loving to read. She developed a love for writing as a senior in high school, when her dad jokingly said she was the next Dr. Seuss (not even close but very sweet). She met her husband, Steve at BYU and they have six happy, crazy children that encourage her writing. After owning a bookstore and running away to have adventures in Australia, they settled back down in their home in Utah. Jaclyn now spends her days herding her kids to various activities and trying to remember what she was supposed to do next.

  1. Very cool you got to read it before the publisher picked it up.

  2. Don't you love it when you read something before it's published and just know it's going to be picked up by someone because it's that good? Congrats to Jaclyn!

  3. In on it at first, before the big burst

  4. Don't hear a lot of leprechaun stories despite hearing a lot about leprechauns. Thanks for sharing this Donna and congrats on your book.

  5. I have a soft spot for leprechaun stories--in sixth grade, we had to write a story that ended "...and that's how the pool got filled with lime jello." or something very close to that. I wrote about a ticked off leprechaun. Wish I still had that one floating around, I remember it being good.

    Best of luck to Jaclyn!

  6. I love it when a draft I've read eventually becomes published. This sounds like a great read. Congrats to the author.
