Lucky 7 Meme

Last Wednesday the wonderful Mindy Hardwick tagged me in something called the Lucky 7 Meme. It looked like fun so I thought I’d give it a try.

Here are the rules:

1. Go thou to page 77 of your current MS
2. Get thee hence to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating!
4. Tag 7 authors
5. Let each and every one of them know

With the state my manuscript’s in(limbo between edits), who knows if this will ever make it to the final draft? Either way, here are 7 lines, starting with line 7 on page 77 from my current draft of Moonshadow’s Guardian, the fantasy novel I’m hoping to finally whip into shape this year:

“One is a Telar who claims to have the knowledge we seek,” I said. “The other is a woman born to a Telar with no powers of her own-”
“Jacob, who is it?” Andre asked, gesturing to the robes.
“Isabella,” he said. “She died yesterday. The funeral will be in a week, to give the cousins time to travel. If you four will come with me, we must press on in our mission.”
Jacob’s office was now a mess. Servants brought in extra chairs and we sat around the desk. A foot of paperwork had collected there.

A hopefully tantalizing taste of my novel–which I hope you will give me your opinions on.

And now I pass the torch on to seven people I like:

1. L. K. Mitchell
2. Emma Newman
3. Karen Dales
4. Patricia Yager Delagrange
5. Tatra
6. Krazikrys
7. Joan Y. Edwards

Once again, thanks to Mindy for tagging me. And to the rest of you ladies, let’s see your page 77.

  1. I loved your excerpt, Dianna! It made me want to read more about what has happened to Isabella!

  2. Hi Mindy,

    I’m glad you liked it. Isabella is one of the many victims of a telepathic plague in Moonshadow’s Guardian. Someday I hope you’ll learn even more than that.

    Thanks for stopping by,
