Lucky 7 Peek at Road Rage


Fellow author, faithful tweep, and ever-ready 1k1hr-er, Heather Riccio http://heathermriccio.com/my-blog.html tagged me as one of her 7 victims–I mean chosen participants in a fun game.  If you arrived here after I tweeted you, then you have been chosen to play as well, and I’m eager to hear your 7 lines.

The Rules:
1. Go to page 77 of your current MS.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences, and post them as they’re written. No cheating.
4. Tag 7 other victims …er, authors.

Here’s my 7 lines (from wip Road Rage, a contemporary romance/ghost story):

     Being separated from him was worse torture than the fog.  Not knowing how he was doing had her insides in knots.  Had he made up with Haley?  Had his day been okay or had he suffered a hangover?  Was he wearing jeans or sweats?  Did he have a shirt on?
Her skin flushed hot as she remembered giving in to her attraction to Derek last night. 

And the lucky authors I pick to play Lucky-7 Tag are:

Laura Lee Nutt
Amy Raby
Julie Benjamin
Elizabeth Kelley
Cassiel Knight
Lauren Dane
Mary Abshire

Can’t wait to see those 7 lines, Ladies.

About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, faeries...you name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.

  1. Ooo, fun game, Jessi. I love it! Here are my lines. This is from Red and the Wolf, my story that explores what might have happened if Little Red Riding Hood hadn’t lived happily ever after.

    To read her natural response, Karl had tossed the idea at Ada Krautbrauer, and she had confirmed with her silence that she, at least, thought Jäger a werewolf. How much weight could Karl put in the elder Frau Krautbrauer’s silence and Lothar’s insistence against Blanchette and the rest of the village’s denial? Was he just running in circles?
    Perhaps, the werewolf unleashed at the rise of the full moon destroyed all morality and control even the noblest man possessed. Could that explain the disparity in opinions Karl found in Ulfheim?

    My lucky victims, ehem, picks in no particular order are:
    1. Lauren @bluemaven
    2. Elizabeth S. Craig @elizabethcraig
    3. Linda Poitevin @lindapoitevin
    4. Ryan Britt @RyancBritt
    5. Stina Leicht @StinaLeicht
    6. Donna Newton @DonnaNewtonUK
    7. Linda Nagata @LindaNagata

  2. Donna Newton says:

    I was praying my novel’s page 77-7 wouldn’t have swearing and death! Luckily, this is a tame, nice part of the book, lol.

    “What did I say?” Nate frowned.
    Billy threw his hat onto the table and ruffled his hair. “He fell out of a tree.”
    “What?”
    “Yep. He was trying to save Mrs Willowby’s cat, fell, and broke his leg.”
    “Dam kid’s too eager for his good.” George chuckled.
    Billy joined in. “Mrs Willowby’s complaining he ruined her flower bed when he fell; flattened her roses, apparently. George had to take crime scene photos.”

    And my lucky victims are
    Piper Bayard
    Natalie Hartford
    Jenny Hansen
    Kristen Lamb
    Gene Lempp
    Karen McFarland
