Lucky 7

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The challenge is to blog 7 lines from unpublished works of fiction.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:

  1. Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript (fiction or non-fiction).
  2. Go to line 7
  3. Post on your blog the next 7 lines, or sentences, as they are – no cheating!
  4. Tag 7 other authors to do the same

I am currently working on book three in my ‘Beyond the Veil’ series, which is tentatively titled ‘Rise of the Shadow’.

Here are the 7 sentences from page 7 of my current manuscript:

Stepping through, she pushed a stray strand of white hair back up into the tight bun on the back of her head.  The doorway spiraled shut leaving her in the dim blue-white light of a wisp suspended from the center of the ceiling. 

This small room was her inner sanctum, her retreat where she could meditate and ponder upon the things she witnessed over the ages.  It was sparsely furnished, with a small writing desk in one corner, a comfortable leather chair and a small bed, both surrounded by stacks of books.  She gathered her robes about her and settled down into the chair.  She closed her eyes and relaxed, allowing her consciousness to flow outward again, seeking answers to the presence she had felt at Talith Nor.  After almost five thousand years, measured in the time of the mortals, she had seen many things, but only once before had she encountered an energy sensation like the one she sensed today.

I would now like to challenge the following authors:

Maeve Greyson

Lindsay Buroker

Lainey Bancroft

E. P. Marcellin

Joel Kirkpatrick

Jaleta Clegg

Thomma Lyn Grindstaff
