Lucky Seven

Yep, so I got tagged by Gennifer Albin for this seven thing. Goes like this:

1. Go to the seventh or 77th page of the WIP or latest book
2. Count down seven lines.
3. Copy the 7 sentences that follow and post them.
4. Tag 7 other authors.

So here are my 7 lines from page 77 of Origin:

As we walk, he begins telling me all the names of the plants we pass. I already know their names, but I don’t tell him that. He seems to think that scientists always want to know the names of things, and so I guess he thinks he’s being helpful. Anyway, I like listening to his voice. It’s deep and a little hoarse, as if he’s been yelling all day, and his accent makes every word sound new and exciting, as if he’s speaking another language I don’t have to strain to understand.
“Here is annatto, for repelling insects and curing snakebites. The girls say it makes a love potion, but I don’t believe them. They have all tried it on me, and I don’t love any of them.”

So, there you go!

And here are my 7 lucky authors:

1. A. G. Howard

2. Anna Banks

3. Lisa Basso

4. Kimberly Brock

5. Chelsea Fine

6. Lindsay Cummings

7.  Christina Farley

Ready, set, go! And let me know when you do because I WANT TO READ YOUR STUFFS, okay?


  1. Love your description of the voice! Makes me look forward to reading Origin in the fall!

  2. Really enjoyed the excerpt. I also like your description of his voice. My favourite line is the last one :-)

  3. What a fun game. I loved your selection. Already I'm anxious to read the book. I'll have to post mine on Monday since I've already booked myself blogging for the week. Impressive isn't it? I thought so. :-)

  4. Ooh, I like your seven lines. Can feel the chemistry between them already. And *swooning* over the way his voice sounds. AWESOME!
