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