Lucky Seven - Deathhawk's Betrayal

There are a lot of chain blogs and awards that go around. Occasionally I join in for fun, but most of the time I’m too busy to bother or they quite simply annoy the hell out of me. Very, very rarely, though, one comes along which actually looks like fun and, even better, requires very little effort on my part! It’s not that I am averse to hard work, you understand, it’s just I do so damn much of it. And I’m currently on holidays in beautiful Port Stephens, so really, who would want to work hard?

But I’ve been tagged by four people in this latest meme – yes, it wasn’t enough for just one of you pester me, four of you had to gang up to get me to do this. Thank you @markbrassington, @dionnelister, @thatgirlani and @stephanieberget. But that’s OK, I’ve decided to play along this time.

So this is how the Lucky Seven meme works: 
  1. Go to page 77 in your current manuscript;
  2. Go to line 7;
  3. Copy down the next 7 lines as they are (no cheating);
  4. Tag 7 other authors.
Here we have it, from Deathhawk’s Betrayal, page 77:
Raylee had not been fooled by her contrived defeat of the mercenary in town, but she had no intention of sharing the information. Just because Astarl had offered to look into the missing girls? Or was there more to it? And for that matter, why had all the other girls gone missing but not Raylee?

If Astarl needed something, she believed Raylee would help. And expect nothing but the same in return. Maybe not all people are the same.
I’ve tagged seven writers I know to play, but please, don’t feel compelled! This is strictly optional. Don’t play if you don’t enjoy! I know all of you are writers, but I’m not totally across your latest projects so forgive me if you don’t have a current WIP or haven’t made it to page 77 yet.

Ahh - I love it. Sorry I ganged up on you ;-) 
That comment made me laugh. I like you have been tagged in things but this is the first one I have joined in as I liked this. 
Well done for joining in, I really enjoyed your post and your seven lines and definitely peaked my interest. 
I hope you're enjoying your well earned break. Take it easy.

Love the snippet. And thank you for choosing me. I have to refrain from my WIP's page 77...lots of spoilers! ;-)

 Ah, no worries :-) I didn't feel compelled to participate. Glad you enjoyed the snippet. it's hard when it's totally random like that.

Ciara Ballintyne said...

 A most wise decision...

I so rarely play when I'm tagged, but this is a fun one, and since I was tagged twice, I figured I'd better do it. LOL.

 I don't often play either, but chose to this time for the same reason as you.
