Lucky 7: seven lines from new works

I have been passed my Lucky 7 by the wonderful Laura Wilkinson. Lucky 7 is a bit of ‘blog fun’ for authors.
This is my first time being tagged, and as I pass this on to my Lucky 7 – like Laura – I hope i don’t lose any friends or followers 🙂

Here’s how it works:

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

Here is the 7 line extract from page 7 of my current editing manuscript ‘The Divine Pumpkin’:   


“God, I don’t believe you! Of course power is important. I don’t have it and everyone else does!” She raised her voice so loudly that a prison officer peered through the
 glass window in Paloma gently raised her hand to him, and gently shook her head.

                                                . . .
Paloma had a forty-five minute drive to her home in Cambridge from the YOI, which offered her the opportunity to indulge in two guilty pleasures; listening to The Mama’s and the Papa’s and smoking. She knew the latter action was moronic and inexcusable, but she loved the way it made her feel. Rebellious and relaxed.

As I wrote this I noticed something I need to change, but as the rules state ‘no cheating’, I had to obey!

So the next Lucky 7 are:

Mariam Kobra @marium_kobras
Lyn Midnight @LynMidnight
Robert James Russel @robhollywood
Helen Hollick @HelenHollock
Kate Thomson @Katyhaye
Sean Harris @vampirewars_SH
Amanda McCrinn @9inchnails


Remember that this is a bit of fun. I have enjoyed reading the previous 7 extracts, and hopefully you will have the same experience. There is no punishment if any of the Lucky 7 above don’t partake.

Hope you enjoyed my extract 🙂
