Seven-Sentence Monday


Jocelyn Adams, author of the Lila Gray series (among other fantastic tales), tagged me on Facebook for a seven-sentence reveal.  As a lot of you don’t have Facebook accounts, I thought it would be fun to post the same thing here and then I’ll tag all of you do the same.

What do you have to do to play along?  Go to either page 7 or 77 of your manuscript. Count down 7 lines, then copy the next 7 lines to your status.

Here’s an excerpt from my short story, Summerfirth.

“I love you, too.” I dabbed my eyes as Perdita slipped from the room. My best friend, my sister in every way but name, was gone. I would never see her again, not as long as she remained in Master Gowdry’s employ. I swallowed back the sickness rising in my throat. In less than an hour I would marry a man I did not love, a man whose lot in life was to kill the man I did. Never had I felt more alone, more afraid, more like thrusting a dagger in my heart.

So, what are your seven?  Tell us here or on your own blog.  Make sure you link back here so we can all read your snippet.

Happy Monday!
