Tag, you're it! Seven lines from The Reckoning
I've been tagged. There's a meme going around among authors: if you're tagged, you must post seven lines from page 77 of your latest book or manuscript you're working on, starting after the seventh sentence.
Katiebabs, also known as KT Grant, tagged me at her blog, Babbling About Books. (Katiebabs, if you don't know her yet, writes romance and erotica and is one naughty, naughty lady.) You can read her seven lines here.
So here goes, from The Reckoning. The set up is that Adair is back, escaped from his prison of two hundred years and staying with Jude while he acclimates to the 21st century. He's trying to make the elixir of life again and running into difficulties in the modern age:
"Take it easy," Jude said soothingly. "In this day and age, there's got to be some piece of equipment that runs on electricity that can do this kind of work. I'll look into it. . . Oh--and I've got a lead on someone we can sell it [the elixir of life] to. He's one of those high-tech gazillionaires and he's on death's door. He's always been a really ruthless bastard--scares the shit out of everybody--but now that his cancer has metastaszied, he's not so tough. The only problem is that it's hard to get an appointment to see him."
Thanks, Katie! That was fun--plus you've given me a chance to run the NEW cover for The Reckoning.
Okay, the seven authors I've picked are:
