Lucky 7 is a blog challenge I was invited to participate in by author Maria Savva.
The challenge is to blog 7 lines from unpublished works of fiction. Here are the instructions:
- Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript (fiction or non-fiction).
- Go to line 7
- Post on your blog the next 7 lines, or sentences, as they are – no cheating!
- Tag 7 other authors to do the same

I would now like to challenge the following authors:
