Winners and Lucky 7

I am so excited to announce my two winners for the author interview and book contests I've held.

The winner for KISS OF THE MORNING STAR is Viven!

The winner for TROUBLE WITH A HALF A MOON is Carmella Condon Van Vleet!

I will be emailing you asking for your addresses.

And now for Lucky 7. I was tagged Kim Kasch and by Jessica Khoury. Ironically, Jessica worked at the bookstore my mother-in-law managed and we both attended Toccoa Falls College. Small world!

So the Lucky 7 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 GILDED (my YA mythological based paranormal):

“Haemosu’s power is greatest in the day,” she says and then grunts to whip out a roundhouse. I’m ready and side step around her, quick and light. “That is the time he will attack.”

She turns to face me again. I see the attack and land a front kick, planting it directly at her chin. She stumbles backwards slightly, her eyes widening. “Not bad,” she admits. “The best I have seen in a long time.”

But then she does a move I’ve never seen. It’s like watching a movie. And I’m definitely not the star. She leaps up, spins and double kicks, one foot after the other knocking at my shoulder and nose. Pain shoots through my face and blood spurts through the air.

So none of that probably makes sense to you, but there you go. As far as tagging, I'm going to let you tag yourself if you would like to participate!

I think your seven lines are awesome! Shows you know how to write action. That's always the hardest for me. And BTW, you reminded me that I'm behind the eight ball, so my Meme is going up today, too. :)
