I’ve recently been tagged in the Seven Writer Challenge by three wonderful author friends—Debbie Peterson, L.J. Kentowski, and Lorraine Paton. Thanks to all three of these ladies for sending the challenge my way. This is always a fun one!
According to the rules, I must go to either page 7 or page 77 of one of my works and, starting on line 7, post the next seven lines. After that, I get to challenge seven other authors to do the same. I told you it was fun! 😀
My selection is taken from page 77 of THE MYSTERY OF ECLIPSE LAKE, my current WIP, a mystery/romance with plenty of family drama. This is from the POV of Jonah Carlisle who suddenly has an unexpected house guest on his hands—his seventeen-year-old nephew, Jesse, who up until a few days ago, he never knew existed.
“This way,” Jesse said, clearly enjoying the role of tour guide. He led April and Paige toward the kitchen. Even Koya abandoned Jonah, trailing happily on Jesse’s heels, her tail wagging from side to side.
He (Jonah) closed the door and counted to ten. The kid had a habit of getting under his skin, and it was growing worse the more time they spent together. In the kitchen he found his nephew and Paige unloading bags at the oversized center island he used for food preparation. April busily stacked covered bowls and dishes in his near-empty refrigerator.
And now I’d like to pass the challenge to these fabulous authors:
Roll out your 7’s, ladies!
