I’m participating in the Three Wishes Blog Blitz, hosted by author Juliet Madison! From 2nd to 6th September you’ll have the chance to win some awesome prizes at all the blogs participating in the blitz, including mine.
Why is it called the Three Wishes Blog Blitz? Juliet’s new romantic comedy release, I Dream of Johnny, is about three wishes, a high-tech genie in a lamp, and one very unfortunate typo that proves magic isn’t all it cracked up to be…
The Lily Malone ‘wishlist’ is a bit too x-rated to include in a non-x-rated blog (it includes way too many scenarios with Timothy Olyphant and Charlie Hunnam) so instead I thought I’d let the heroines in my books rub their own magic lamp today, and tell you what they’d wish for.
Christina Clay is the eccentric, hat-wearing, clay-pigeon shooting, horse-riding, winery executive, city girl, who stars in my Escape Publishing contemporary romance, His Brand Of Beautiful. Here’s what Christina would wish for, if she discovered a magic lamp in the op-shops she regularly visits:
- A world without snakes or lizards or scaly things that might slither beneath the timber slats of an outback camp shower
- A bottle of champagne that never ends, and never loses its fizz
- Legs as long and luscious as those of her best friend, Lacy Graham.
Olivia Murphy is the Ducati-loving viticulturist who features in my contemporary romance novella, The Goodbye Ride. This is what Liv would wish for if she found a magic lamp in one of her vineyards.
- That her brother was still alive
- That jeans and a pink beanie counted as ‘smart-casual’
- That cooking salt and pepper squid was as easy as making baked beans on toast.
Jennifer (Jenn) Gates is the golf-playing, freelance writing, mother of a toddler son, now coming to life in my new book, Fairway to Heaven. I am about 20,000 words in and Jenn is trying to get her mojo back (after discovering her golf-pro boyfriend cheating on her with one of his golf students) on a long weekend stay at this beach shack.
If she discovered a magic lamp in the shed at the back of the shack, this is what she’d wish for:
- That her cheating ex-boyfriend, Jack, develops a massive case of the putting yips and never sinks a putt again
- That her 14-month-old toddler will wake up tomorrow toilet trained
- That Brayden Culhane doesn’t consider the kiss they shared at this beach house eight years ago as “the biggest mistake of his life.”

My prizes include your choice of: a copy of His Brand Of Beautiful, a copy of The Goodbye Ride, and (because it’s so new) the opportunity to have a character named after you in my new book, Fairway To Heaven!

(You’ll need to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for that one too).
My question: If you could be the heroine of a movie or a book, which heroine would you wish to be and why?
You can answer in the comments. (If you ‘like’ my Facebook page during the Blog Blitz (2 September to 6 September) www.facebook/lily.lilymalone I’m sure I’ll come up with something special for you too!)
