So I was tagged earlier today to do this, and just got home and so here is my offering! If you haven’t seen this around and about, here’s what you do:

1. Go to the seventh or seventy-seventh page of WIP.
2. Count down seven lines.
3. Copy the seven sentences that follow and post them on your blog.
4. Tag seven other authors (on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr–up to you!).

So… here we go, from AVALON RISING. I chose the seventh page to give you a nice teaser from Chapter One.

Seven years ago, she had stood six feet to the right of this plot of grass on the day they buried her mother. The landscape hadn’t changed much in the intervening years, though the trees were a bit taller and there were a more headstones dotted around. Gwen remembered that day being much the same as it was today: unseasonably cold with dark clouds hanging low in the sky, threatening rain at any moment. The bright flowers resting on the lid of her father’s casket stood out in contrast to the ominous backdrop.

“He was so young…”

“I can’t imagine what you must be going through.”

Gwen clasped her hands in front of her black patterned skirt, squeezing them as hard as she could.

So there you have it!! Now, instead of tagging folks (as I know mosts of my friends have already been tagged), if you wind up doing this, I will link to you if you comment with your link!

Awesome QTers:
