Oh my god, I haven’t posted in so long it’s obscene.
But to get me back into the blog posting game I’ve been tagged by Madhuri Blaylock to join the 7-7-7 challenge. Which immediately made me think of the Demon Lord, but that’s how my weird mind works.
Sorry, I had to make a NANA reference. I had to!
Any *ahem* back to the point…
The 7-7-7 challenge has nothing to do with the Demon Lord at all (or Demon-Sama for you purists), instead it’s a way to give readers a teeny tiny taste of your work in progress and whet their appetite. 🙂
It’s also a great way for me to get back into the writing groove because I had to put my precious baby on hold for a month and I really want to get back to Songhay and Niko (they’re proving to be more fun than I expected, heh heh).
What you do is go to the 7th page of your WIP, start on the 7th line of that page and post 7 lines.
So without further ado, here is my 7-7-7 sneak peek of Monster, book 4 of The Outsider Chronicles
There were two types of Slithers, pale, inhuman, monsters with disturbingly colored eyes, a mouthful of long sharp teeth and a taste for human flesh.
They were pretty straightforward in their quest for their favorite meal. They were incredibly stupid but they were also too fast and too strong for anyone to stop unless they were a Slither hunter.
The smart ones were crafty, a regular Slither wouldn’t have thought to hide beneath the house.
Niko thought they had killed the smart one.
She was wrong.
