Lucky No 7 Meme


Thanks, Anita Davison, for joining me to the Lucky No. 7 Meme. I"m still not entirely sure what a "meme" is but,  hey, I am one of the world's great "joiners" so here we go.

Instructions: 
*go to page 77 of your current WIP
*go to line 7
*copy down the next 7 lines/sentences as written and post them on your blog or website
*tag 7 other authors
*let them know they've been tagged

The following is an extract from my soon to be published novel GATHER THE BONES... (August 2012)
In the late afternoon, Paul abandoned the library and adjourned to his own rooms. He sat at a table by the window, a pencil in his mouth and his right hand curled around a glass of whiskey, looking at a sheet of paper on which he had scribbled some notes for his translation of “The Iliad.”
“I knocked but you didn't answer”
Paul started, nearly knocking over the whiskey. Helen stood with her hand on the door handle.
“Come in,” he said. “Sorry, I was a bit preoccupied. When did you get back?”
“About half an hour ago. I brought the cigarettes you asked Sam to get,” she said.
“Thanks, leave them on that table.” He waved a hand in the direction of the small table. Helen set the packet down and crossed over to the window to join him.




OK...that probably wasn't the most rivetting excerpt. It gets more exciting I promise!

Tagging love to be shared with (in no particular order):

Enjoy the Extracts!

  1. I love the sound of this story and the cover is beautiful. What a lovely site you have here - and the tag line is just great! - breathing life into the dry bones of history with characters so real they leap from the pages'

    Well done.
