The Lucky 7 Meme Award

I recently received this award from Rena Jones, children's author and nature photographer, who blogs at

1. Go to page 77 of your current manuscript.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy the next 7 sentences exactly how they're written. No cheating!
4. Tag 7 other writers to pass this meme on to.

Here is an excerpt from page 77 of my manuscript, A Past and A Future, available from Sam's Dot Publishing and Smashwords.

Arthur and Guinevere called and waved from an upper open balcony. Merlin turned for one last look. He spotted Morgaine at an open window. With a quick salute to his king and queen, Merlin nudged his horse's flanks and headed for the drawbridge.

As they traveled and the days passed, Viviane and Merlin kept much to themselves. Merlin spoke of druid secrets and beliefs. Trained as a bard, he attempted to teach Viviane a particular type of poetry whose purpose was the construction of magical incantations.

Now here are seven others who I'm passing the award to:
