Seven Meme and a Book Contract: Sometimes Life Rocks (I’m grabbing it because sometimes it doesn’t).

The fabulous Fiona Druce has passed the Seven Meme to me. Check her out.  She has a fantastic sense of humor.

My mission, should I choose to accept it, is to share some of my work in progress in raw form.  I have a choice-the 7th page or the 77th.  From there, I count seven lines, share the next seven and choose seven writers to do the same.

Mission Accepted.  My seven lines come from Fires of Justice, my paranormal novella that finalled in the Stroke of Midnight Contest and received a book contract from Ellora’s Cave  (coming soon to an e-reader near you).  Since its a novella, the excerpt is from page 7.  In this scene, our heroine, Calista Reid, learns that her parents were killed by a shifter, not by accident as her aunt had her believe.

“You kept me in the dark to protect me?” Her knees chafed against her chest she gripped them so tight.

“I didn’t want you to grow up angry or vengeful.  Even insane elementals are protected by the guardian. If you didn’t know, you couldn’t hate.“  Esmy put her hands on the back of Calista’s seat. “My sister and her husband were emotionally weak and self-absorbed. I didn’t know if you would grow up the same and I couldn’t take the risk. Thank the eight guardians you didn’t.”

Here are the seven writers whose work I want to read:

Cristin Harben

Cindy Carroll

Maeve Greyson

Alexa Bourne

Sapphire Phelan

Margery Scott

Lisa Mondello

Mission Accomplished. Take a whirl around the net with me and take a peek into what this talented group is writing.

      1. Sounds like you are launched, girl. There is nothing like seeing your very own world put out there in black and white, for others to live in for a little while. It is your chance to say what you have to say and make your mark in the world. Something to celebrate. Best of luck, Sabrina.

        1. Thanks Naomi. I am celebrating. But I am really grateful that the journey of writing brought me to a place where I get to meet (and continue to meet) a lot of wonderful people who are out there creating, such as you. Thanks.
