So this blog is all about fun and promotion for my book, Winter's Captive. A writer friend of mine, H.H. Laura, has challenged those of us in her writing group to the 777 Writer's Challenge.

All this means is that I take seven sentences from page seven or seventy-seven and post them here in my blog. Then I post links to all the other writer's I wish to challenge. 

Here we go:

From Page 7:
 Gary grabbed me by the arm and shoved me through the side door of the van, onto the floor.

 He drew the gun out of his pocket and ran the barrel back and forth along my cheeckbone.

 His blue eyes were like those of a doll--glassy and lifeless.

From Page 77: 

The frost line was well up the inside of the door.

I decided that a long, thin carving knife would have to do, and gathered up most of the other items.

I didn't relish the thought of handling the bloody meat with my winter gloves.

The tool shed provided the saw and the tarp.

Did I write these lines? Sometimes I think when I write I'm channelling. When I read back, I even surprise myself.

Okay fellow writer's, I've shown you mine, now show me yours.
