Almost 3 weeks ago now, E. C. Myers tagged me in one of those internet memes where you, well, tag other people. And while I don’t normally do things like that these days, I can never resist the incomparable Mr. Myers. And since i just finished revising my middle grade novel, it seemed to make sense. So over two weeks later, here it is. The rules are:
1. Go to the seventh or 77th page of our WIP (or latest book)
2. Count down 7 lines.
3. Copy the 7 sentences that follow and post them.
4. Tag 7 other authors.
I’m not going to tag other authors, but here’s my passage from the MG novel:
Cassian shaded his eyes and looked up at the clouds in the sky. “At least it’s not snowing that would really mess with…”
“What?” Thiel said.
“Look.” Cassian pointed further down the direction of the road where dark-winged birds circled in the sky.
Thiel looked at Cassian wide-eyed. “You don’t think –“
“C’mon,” Cassian said.
Also, if you haven’t already, you should pick up a copy of Fair Coin by the aforementioned E. C. Myers. I read it back when it was just a wee baby manuscript and I knew the minute I did that it was going to be fantastic. I’m so happy to see it out in the world and doing so well. io9 called it pure awesome crack. It’s well worth your time.
