by Gemma Grayfield, friend of Rory Chasen--who's the star of the Superstition Mysteries by Linda O. Johnston
Hi. I'm Gemma Grayfield. I used to be a librarian in
Angeles, but when I came here to Destiny, , home of superstitions, to visit
my good friend Rory Chasen, I was asked to run the Broken Mirror
Bookstore. That's right next door to the
Lucky Dog Boutique where Rory is the manager. California
My former boyfriend, Frank Shorester--whom I was avoiding--decided to follow me here. On top of that, I started flirting with a couple of men I met here in Destiny. And when one of them was murdered... well, it was a good thing that Rory had already solved one murder, since she had to work on helping to clear me. That situation has been memorialized in a book, KNOCK ON WOOD.
Now, let me tell you why I offered to blog here today. We sell copies of the premiere book on superstitions at the Broken Mirror: The Destiny of Superstitions. We also sell other books relating to superstitions and Destiny. As a librarian by background, I've read them all. As a result, I figured I would tell you here about some superstitions I learned about regarding this month, November.
Rory tells me she has already let you know about some Thanksgiving superstitions, such as the person who gets the larger portion of a turkey wishbone, when two people break it, is the one whose wish comes true.
And although it's not specific to November, you're possibly aware that we just had a Friday the 13th--supposed to be bad luck.
Now, there are some superstitions that say it's bad luck if a bird flies into your home, but if it happens to be a robin in November, that's good luck.
It's a good thing to marry in November, since you'll have a wonderful marriage and life.
Watch out if flowers start blooming in November, or if the weather is warm, since they are both indications a bad winter is on its way, but if you hear thunder in November and you happen to be a gardener or farmer, that's a good sign since it means lots of crops.
I'll stop now, although I do know a few more pertinent superstitions. I'm just glad I had this opportunity to say hi, and hope I can blog here again sometime.
KNOCK ON WOOD, the second Superstition Mystery by Linda O. Johnston, is an October 2015 release from Midnight Ink.
