Lucky Seven Tag!


When I got back from vacation earlier this month, I was totally surprised to find out that I had been tagged by the very talented Lisa McFerren (@Lisas_alter_ego). It’s called the “lucky seven” tag. Check out Lisa’s lucky seven tag blog here.

So here are the rules: Open the document for your current MS/WIP (manuscript or work-in-progress) and go to page 7 or 77. Go to line 7 and copy the next 7 lines (sentences or paragraphs) and post them exactly as they are written. No changing or cheating! Then tag 7 authors and let them know.

I am currently working on the second book in my Dion series. I’ll admit I checked both page 7 and 77. I liked the lines from page 7 better, so without further ado, I give you the 7 lines from page 7 starting at line 7 from “Where Will You Hide?”


Where are you going my lovelies?” She purred.

Reinn stood in front of the children and raised his sword.

She looked at him and cocked her head to the side.

“Do you really think you can stop me Viking? All your men are dead, and you will soon join them.”

Reinn heard the children start to whimper and cry.

He felt his nephew move closer and put a little arm around his leg.


So now for the fun part, I get to get 7 other amazing writers. Can’t wait to see what they have to share!

  4. Oh, that sounds good Michelle, I want to read it (because I don't have a queue a mile long already lol). I've done this tag thing before but I did it from the 7th page, this time I'll do the 77th, so thanks :)
