The Lucky 7 Meme

Okay so I was tagged for this meme a while back my lovely critque partner Jaycee Delorenzo, but at the time my current WIP hadn't been written yet to the requirements of it (I think I had like 5 pages done at the time, lol), but now it has and I'm going to play the game!


1. Go to page 77 of your current MS.

2. Go to line 7.

3. Copy down the next 7 lines - sentences or paragraphs - and post them as they're written. No cheating.

4. Tag 7 authors.

5. Let them know.

Here we go! (I posted 7 lines instead of the sentences or paragraphs)

            “Excuse me, sir, have you seen a girl…”
            I looked toward the front of the bus upon hearing that oh-so-familiar deep voice.
            CK put his hand in the air at about the level of his mouth as he spoke to the bus driver.  “She’s about this tall…”  He gestured toward his face.  “Wears a scowl…”
            I gasped so loudly that his gaze shot my direction and he grinned.  “Rae of Sunshine.”  He pointed toward me.
            What the hell!

I tag:
Bonnie Rae
Cassie Mae
Lo Johnson
S.E. Lane
Juliana Haygert
Jennifer Comeaux
Kelley Lynn

Sorry if you've been tagged already.  Ignore it if you have!

So I'm terribly, terribly sorry.  I've been a horrible blogger and it has been a week since I posted so I thought I'd drop in with a few updates about what's going on with me!

Well the post man has been good to me this week let me tell you.  First, I'll start with a lovely little ARC I got in the mail today from Ms. Jennifer Echols.

Ah!  I was so frickin' excited when this came in.  I have been dying to read this book.  It doesn't come out until July and when I email Jennifer Echols about getting an ARC for Your The One That I Want she said she ran out and I was sad :(  But then she said she could put me on the list for Such A Rush and I was like "Hell yeah!"  Okay, so I didn't actually email her that, but you get the picture.  I will read and review asap so look out for it.  Blurb here.

Next update, I went Hunger Games crazy this week.  The post man probably had fire on his feet from the way he was frequenting my mail box.  I ordered shirts and a few other things to prepare for the premier next week.  Here are those other things:

Yes, those are Capitol Colours and yes that is a Mockingjay pin!  Eek!  I'm such a dork and so excited for the midnight showing!  If you want to snag the trilogy enter my giveaway below :D

My New Project!

I have been tweeting and Facebooking about this for a few weeks now and I just wanted to make an official announcement on my blog since I don't talk about the status of my projects that often.  I have indeed started writing an urban fantasy and did my first chapter yesterday!

So I am totally excited about it :D  I actually like most of what I've written and fighting myself not to touch it until I'm done.  I'm exploring so many new things for this one and hopefully they all work out for the good. 

When I'm finished, I will indeed post a few lines.  I tabulated my rate for finishing and I think I will be at around two to three weeks until completion on this one.  Now before your jaw drops to the floor about how long it takes to complete a novel, I just want to let you know that with the Snowflake Method I use, it allows me to finish writing first drafts very quickly.  So if you're a writer check it out.  Though I started writing yesterday, it took me about two weeks of drafting and prep before I could start, so keep that in mind!

I started a playlist for this book so here's a little sample of what I'm listening to.  This little lady is the theme for this one so enjoy.
