The 13th Day: Super-Awesome-Bomb-Diggity News!

Some people may think that the number 13 is unlucky, but not those of us at The Lucky 13s!

In fact, we're celebrating the 13th day of each month by featuring all the fabulous stuff that's been happening to The Lucky 13s.

Please raise a glass to our super-awesome-bomb-diggity news....

Sarah Skilton welcomed a baby boy named Elliot. We can all brag that we've created debut novels, but Sarah's created something even cuter. Welcome, Elliot!
