Here we go, boys and girls: the Lucky Seven. I got this from Lisamarie Lamb. Thanks, my friend!

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.
“Watch out, dick wad,” I say. “The last guy that tried that is still in Rose Medical Center. Seems like he was a tad clumsy and started carving himself up instead of me. Can you imagine that? For heaven’s sake: what could cause such a horrible detachment of reason? It was . . . It was as if he had a manifestation of an epiphany. You had to be there. Sylvia was quite taken in by it all, weren’t you, you murderous bitch?”

     She is quite upset now and tears at my clothing, trying to shake me up. “Where is my sister? I want to see her now!”

     “I’m afraid I can’t allow that, Sylvia. You see, I believe you would try to kill her again. Let’s face facts: you are not a very nice person.”

Okay, I guess it's obvious I'm not writing a religious piece. This is from my novel '68 Buick, a Grim Reaper novel.

My lucky seven are:
Suzanne Robb
Lisamarie Lamb
Kate Monroe
Lisa McCourt Hollar
Sue Midliak
Jason Darrick
You should read the rest of this tale. It's not for the faint of heart.



  1. You are a busy man. I wasn't sure which post I should comment on. First off, congrats on the Netbound anthology. That's awesome.

    I like your choice for the "7." Just drops the reader in, and fortunately it's an interesting enough section to intrigue the reader and want to know more (I guess that's the point of the meme, eh?)

    And wish you could've been at WHC. It was great meeting Stacey. She's awesome. Had a great time talking with her and Dani (but tried not to glom on too much so she could network with some people :)

  2. Thanks, Paul. I like working with Netbound. They're good people.

    I like the concept of the meme. Short and quick.

    It would have been nice to have been at WHC, but we were represented well with Stacey. She had a ball and did some great PR for us. More news to come on that.
