The Symbolism behind Numbers #Wild Hunt #research #numerology

I've been doing some research for my newest WIP, Hunter Sacrificed, a Wild Hunt novella, and I thought I'd share some of what I found on the symbolism behind numbers.
Most people have a favorite number or what they consider a lucky number. For me, it’s the number three. I’ve owned three houses, have three kids, married my third serious boyfriend and made three sputtered attempts at writing before I finished my first novel.
I also have a fascination with the number five. Without realizing it, I gave each of my children and pets a five letter name. My husband and I also have five-letter names. Subconsciously, I must’ve have made the connection and wanted to continue the trend. Or is there a deeper meaning? I don’t know, but I’m likely to continue the trend with any future pets.

Here's a little of what I discovered...

Numbers carry a symbolic meaning in the Bible and mythology, which I LOVE. ;-)

1 — stands for unity
2 — separation (two halves of the whole); the yin-yang, so to speak
3 — the Godhead
4 — Earth
5 — grace, forgiveness or healing
6 — man or beast
666 — Satan
7 — perfection (and a lucky number to many)
8 — new beginnings
9 — finality. This number is also one of magic and the importance of it touches many branches of mythology and religion. The nine layers of Hell is just one example.
27— a magical number as it's 3 times 9. It's also considered a year of transition.

So, what’s your favorite number and why?

It carries over into her writing life too. While engrossed in a novel, she has a habit of forgetting to eat and sleep.

Happy Holidays from me to you! #NancyCorrigan

I don't know about you, but for me, the weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day are jam-packed with obligations. I love getting to see family and friends, watching my kids perform, and participating in a multitude of family activities, but it can overwhelm me if I'm not careful.
I end up relying on my handy 'to-do list' app in order to plan my days so I don't take on more than I can physically handle  :-)
But there is one thing I don't want to forget to do, and that's to wish all of my readers and online friends a happy holiday (no matter what you kind you celebrate). I simply want to wish you good thoughts. So...

Read a PG excerpt of Love Repeated ~ Author Nancy Corrigan's1st #erotic #contemporary! #MFRWAuthor

Want to read a PG excerpt of my latest release? How about a contest? Well, I have both for you today. Read on!

Love Repeated

By Nancy Corrigan


Sparks fly when Kyle's ex shows up in town. Whether she'll stay ~ or survive staying ~ is another matter entirely. 



Blurb


Young lovers, Kyle and Ronnie, had the world ahead of them at seventeen. Stubbornness, misunderstanding, and a mother’s influence forced them to forge their own paths. A decade later, neither can find love. It takes a tragedy and a secret to reunite them. Their passion returns in a rush along with regret and guilt.

Ronnie always thought it was easier to move on than deal with the pain and hurt of past mistakes. She made plenty of them, but so did Kyle and her parents.

Kyle knows the moment he touches Ronnie that he still loves her. He won’t repeat the past and let her leave him a second time. They’ll overcome the issues, hopefully before her mother’s sin takes Ronnie away, once and for all.



Excerpt (PG)

She raised her gaze to his. The bruises on her face twisted his gut, but her hazel eyes mesmerized him, exactly as they had a lifetime ago. His words got stuck in his throat. Finally, she shook her head, breaking the spell she’d cast over him. “Ten minutes in town and I run into you. Talk about luck.”

“Good luck, I’d say.” He motioned toward the bruise on her cheek. “What happened?”

She folded her arms under her breasts and shifted her gaze to his chin. “Armed robbery.”

She lied. He could see it in her eyes. He stepped closer. “Don’t bother lying to me, Ronnie. I know you too well. What really happened?”

Her brows pinched. “I haven’t seen you in years, Kyle. You don’t know me anymore.”

He supposed she was right. He’d thought they’d spend their life together. She’d proved him wrong. Still, she drew him like no other woman ever had.

He brushed a finger over her bruised skin. “Come on, doll. Talk to me.”

She grinned. “I always loved that nickname, you know.”

He matched her smile, couldn’t help it. “And you’re changing the subject.”

“Armed robbery, like I said. I really don’t want to talk about it.” She snatched her purse from where it had fallen on the ground and pulled a hundred-dollar bill from her wallet. She held it out to him.

He glanced from it to her face. “If that’s for saving you, keep it. I don’t want your money. Never did.”

She rolled her eyes. “Please, Kyle. I didn’t come back to this shithole town to fight with you. I was wondering if you could go back into the bar and pay for my drink. I’d rather not go in there again.”

He worked his jaw and fought his irrational anger. It wasn’t her fault he’d reacted like a jerk, but he’d always hated the fact that she had more money. He took the cash and crumpled it in his hands. “Why did you?”
