The Lucky 7 – Seven lines from new novels

I’ve been passed The Lucky 7 from my writer friend, Linn Halton. She sent me a tweet:  I’ve tagged u – 7 lines from new works. #authors #newbooks #writing a bit of fun! Lx

  1. Hi, Anne. Very interesting snippet. Thanks for playing along and sharing some of your work. Thank you for thinking of me. I was hit with this before, a couple of months ago; however, since you and another friend have asked within a week’s time, I think I will have another go of it. Since I only post once a week, perhaps this is what next Monday’s subject will be in a week’s time. I’ll be sure and link back and let you know when it goes up.
    Have a great week, Anne. *waves*
