Lucky 7

Author Julia Kavan roped me in – sorry, tagged me – to this and thus it would be more than my life is worth to ignore her. She has been known to unleash demons. The instructions are:

Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript

Go to line 7

Post on your blog the next 7 lines or sentences exactly as they are (no cheating)

Press gang – sorry, tag – 7 other authors to do the same


Well, this is something new to me because I never, ever reveal anything of a work in progress. Here goes. Page 7…


“How much does it cost to exorcise a demon? Tell me, I’m interested.”

Father Ryan’s face went pale, his lips clamped tight together in a line.  “Well,” he said after a pause, “we don’t…um…charge as such. If we succeed and the person is able, we hope they might make a donation.”

I held his gaze and leaned against the centre armrest. “Don’t be coy, Father. What’s the going rate to rid someone of a minor demon? Fifty bucks? A hundred? A thousand?”

He leaned back towards the fuselage, putting what distance he could between us.

(that is 7 lines in the manuscript!)


And the 7 authors I curse are:

Margaret James

Jianne Carlo

Tristram La Roche

Lisa McCourt Hollar

Peter Giglio

Geoff North

Rosie Fiore

And the best of luck
