Time for a Change!

I've been secretly working on something. This project has been so tightly under wraps, only two or three people know about it. I haven't even updated my Coming Soon pages! But let me tell you, this novel is coming soon, and I think you're all going to love it!

For those of you reading the Darkness Falls trilogy, don't worry. I'm working on that, too. But this is a new book based on my daughter's wild personality. She is quite the character. Now, Abigail Nichols shares my daughter's name and awesome traits, but that's about it.

Why am I telling you all of this? Well, someone tagged me in the Lucky Sevens game. I've been avoiding this for the Darkness Falls trilogy because page 77 would give away the plot for Wilde's Meadow, but I think sharing from Abby's story will be okay.

Here we go:

"Yes, sir." Derick reached in front of me then opened the glove box. "It's okay," he whispered, pulling out the owner's manual.

How? Good lord, we hadn't even made it a hundred miles and we were already in trouble.

"Let's see . . . warranty, insurance . . . . Here it is, sir." Derick handed over the piece of paper.

~~

Now, because I'm not one for following rules, I'm going to give you the next seven as well:

Trooper Daniels took the registration, then Derick reached into his wallet and pulled out his license.

"Here's my id, sir." So calm. So collected.

Not me.

"The car belongs to you, Mr. Crawford?"

"Yes, sir."

~~

I can't wait to get this book onto the stands. The few people who've seen the inner workings, tell me it's good!

Okay, now onto seven other writers.

Kelly Seguin
Raine Thomas
Wendy S. Russo
Jessica Wentz
Blaire Kensley
Kelly S. Gamble
Johanna Pitcairn

For those of you who aren't familiar with the rules. Go to Page 77 in your WIP, go to the 7th sentence, then copy the following 7 sentences into a blog posting. Cheat away. I did.

    Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, great blog!
