lucky 7 meme - a piece of Black Heart

Lisa Yarde, aka The Brooklyn Scribbler, has tagged me in a Lucky 7 meme. the rules:

*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

it just so happens that page 77 contains an important revelation that i don't want to reveal here since it would ruin the suspense i've tried to work into the story. but, i'll post the part you can read.

this is part of a scene with Tiana (my female MC). she's just learned something about herself that she didn't think could be possible and she's now reading a journal entry (that i can't reveal the author of-- sorry) that confirms it.

 “This is the only course I can take. My hope is that she does not squander my sacrifice. If the truth does not come out, the consequences will be catastrophic.”

This time Tiana couldn’t stop her shriek.

Seconds later, Arathor burst through her door. “What happened?”

The explanation stuck in Tiana’s throat. He sat on the edge of her bed and picked up the book. She felt his shock and then a strange calm. “So," Arathor said, "she did..."

 sorry, but that's where i have to leave you hanging.

 now, to tag 7 writer friends...

Now, you know I'll have to read that book with my name in it!

That was a very intruiging excerpt - but I'm sure it's cheating not to finish the sentence :-)

I'm afraid I won't be taking part, because I've already done this one. Thanks for thinking of me though.

Interesting excerpt. Sounds intriguing. Thanks for thinking of me. I will be posting in the next week or so. Thanks.
