Another Lucky Seven

Yet another Lucky Seven. :D In April I was nominated by the lovely and talented Tonya Cannariato to take part in the Lucky 7 meme. (Yeah, I know, I’m slow, and busy, and forgetful.) And then last week, I got tapped again, so I thought, I'd better get on this or all those other wonderful writers will begin to think I'm a punk. (Actually, Punky was my dad's nickname for me when I was little, so you wouldn't be far off.)

So here are the simple rules:

  1. Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
  2. Go to line 7
  3. Copy down the next seven lines/sentences exactly as they are
  4. Tag 7 other authors

So here are 7 from page 7 of A Sad Jar of Atoms. This sci-fi short will be release for free in July in support of my novel, Girl Under Glass. (ASJA is a prequel to that book.)


“Just beyond Suffer’s gates there are a few houses still standing. They are small and ramshackle, but they provide shelter. Rachel Pryne will live just beyond our gates in one of those. She will join in our worship services. And she will receive the supplies the Ohnenrai deliver. In trade, she will remain our medic, and her baby will be educated and counseled in the ways of our community and subjected to its laws when the child comes of age.”

I didn’t want anything to do with these people, but how the hell could I survive with a newborn away from a community?
