On Hiatus

I'm taking a short break from the internet for August, so this blog will be a little quiet for the rest of the month and into the first week of September. In the meantime, there are scheduled posts going up every Wednesday at my cosplay blog - The Intergalactic Seamstress - and at the review blog Critique de Book, plus the odd up to date post at Spacefreighters Lounge on a Tuesday (or you can find my fellow crew mates posting Monday-Friday). See you when September comes!

Lucky 7 Meme/Seven Sentence Snippet

I wasn't going to play this, but since I've now been tagged by Misa Buckley, Sonya Clark, Jessica Subject, Katje van Loon and Laurel Kriegler, I felt like a bit of a spoilsport. So here goes with the rules:

1. Go to page 77 of your current MS
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating.
4. Tag 7 authors
5. Let them know

So here are my seven, taken from one of my four current WIP - a sfr novella called Tethered.


His eyes flickered open, startled. “Tyree?”
She opened her mouth, about to protest, but he blinked his eyes and saw her clearly. Pain splintered into her, pouring from him in an icy cascade of shock. “Tyree!”
Agony smacked her in the chest. His passion had been for his lost love, not for her.
She Misted out and ran away.

So there you go. Now to tag another seven victims...er, authors. :)

1.Gayle Ramage
2.Chantal Halpin
3.Liz Culver
4.Diana Stevens
5.Cary Caffrey
6.Heidi Ruby Miller
7.Diane Dooley

And you can see some other sevens with Amy Rose Davis and Jessica Subject.

    1. Thanks. I've seen pretty much every author I know (and a few I didn't) taking part in this.
