Author friend Tara Fuller tagged me on this fun little chain mail. Usually not my thing, this one seemed kind of fun. Maybe because I was working on a story (not Wasteland or Violet Night related for once!) So, here goes: 

The Rules:

-Go to page 77 of your current MS.

-Go to line 7.

-Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences, and post them as they’re written. No cheating.

-Tag 7 other victims …er, authors


Okay, here’s mine. It’s from Jaded Rage, an upper YA novel

Her lids snapped open and dark eyes stared back at him. Where’d the green eyes go? “Try and stay out of dark alleys, okay?”

And with that, she stood and strode away.

The scene, the girl, the world melted into a foggy haze as unconsciousness worked to exert its force over him. But before Marcus lost his hold on consciousness a familiar word, Amari, floated past the darkness.

Only one girl knew that word, but she’d disappeared four years ago. “Sophia Roth.”


Okay, fellow author friends, your turn:

    Wow, what a great set of lines. You couldn’t have gotten better ones!

    Thanks for tagging me. I already did this on Rachel’s site, but mine turned out to be the most boring sentences ever written, so I won’t put you to sleep here. 🙂

    That was awesome Lynn! Love it. 🙂

    This is a new version. Usually it is the seven lines of the book you are reading. Cool. Great excerpt.
