I was tagged : The Lucky 7 Post!

I got tagged! Today’s post is the Lucky 7 post; I was tagged by Suzy Turner author of The Raven Saga.
Here’s how it works:
Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
Go to line 7
Copy down the next seven lines/sentences exactly as they are
Tag 7 other authors

This excerpt is from page 77 of Book 2 in The Teen Halloween Series, 14 on Halloween:

My real friends are stuck in some half-life in the shadow world and their shadows are here doing what they’ve always wanted to do––ruin their lives. I’m the only one who can bring my real friends back to this world. Their only hope of really living again.

My phone rattles on my nightstand. I pull the covers down off my face and watch the phone do its little wiggle dance over, and over. I grab my phone and flip it in my hand. When I read Andy I hesitate before pressing answer.

“Hey,” I say.

Spooky?

And now I need to choose 7 authors to do the same! There’s so many great authors out there, it’s SO hard to decide:) Here’s some writer’s I’d love to tag:

Courtney Cole

Tiffany King

C.A. Kunz

Michelle Muto

Angela Carlie

Stacey Wallace Benefiel

M. Leighton

Transfer Student Blog Tour & Giveaway Begins Today! Starjump Excerpt on Leap Day!

Squeeee! Welcome to the first day of the Transfer Student Blog Tour! Today Velvet at vvb32reads has the Starjump Excerpt! Here is one of the settings that inspired the excerpt. The scene starts with Ashley and Sean surfing at Zuma. Ashley wants to forget what happened to her best frenemy the day before so she takes to the water, like she usually does when she wants to escape, but this time something’s different. This time the stars call to her a second time. This time she listens.

YA Indie Carnival: Tunes that inspire!

I’m really excited about Transfer Student. When I wrote the first draft of this story in 2006 many things were going on in my personal and professional life that ended up in the book. The story was also inspired by my years of living in Los Angeles. My hubby and I first moved to LA in 1986. We lived with our kids in a part of the city called Echo Park, nestled in the hills just outside of downtown LA. We had the most amazing home there with one hundred steps to our front door. Here’s a few tracks from the playlist for Transfer Student. I’ll be posting the playlist during the Blog Tour for Transfer Student which starts LEAP DAY! Hope to see you there:) Below read about the ebook ARC giveaway of Transfer Student & check out what music inspires my amazing fellow carnis!
