The 7/7 Blog Challenge

Sandra Saidak, a writer and fellow BayCon member, recruited me for this blog challenge.

The rules are simple:

  • Post seven lines from p. 7 (or 77) of my work in progress
  • Thank Sandy for inviting me with a link back to her blog
  • And…. talk seven other writers into participating by posting seven lines from the appropriate pages of their works in progress, thanking/linking to me, posting the challenge rules, and finding seven other authors to carry on the chain.   Like a chain letter, but more fun!  This is more of a treat for the readers because you get to read something unpublished and perhaps learn about new authors, you don’t know about.

So I’ve been working on many things. It’s really hard to decide if I’m going to give you horror, romance, or something in between.  I decided to do both…

For my Sweet Dreamers / from Sweet Dreams 4, Undecided:

She put her hand under his shirt, touching his dragon tattoo.

“Is it still sore?”

“A little.” He took in a deep gulp of air as she stepped closer.

Staring into his jade green eyes, she moved her hand over the tattoo from waist to chest. His lips enticed her to move in for a kiss. As soon as their lips attached, he pulled her to him with such strength, she thought he might crush her.

***I dare Sweet Dreamers to guess who “she” is.***

For my Biters / Horror Addicts / from a new novel Phantom:

Like a raven startled from frosty branches by a fierce gust of wind, he burst backstage, tattered coat flapping behind him. His ebony hair hung in one long spike on the left side of his face, obscuring his eye, half of his nose and mouth.

Christine felt her breath catch in her throat, but she didn’t not know if it was from interest or horror.

His right eye flicked her way, an accusing stare meant only for her. And then he was gone, down the corridor and up the scaffolding before she could even blink.

“Who was that?” she asked, her breath returning in quick, shallow gasps.

“Just some theatre freak.”
