Flight of Blue Launch Party!

In just six days, on July 24th, Flight of Blue launches into the world, and we’re having a party!

The party action starts at 12AM/11PM EST/CST right here on the blog!

And you’re invited :-) The best part? You can come in your PJ’s (or, *gasp* even your undies!) because it’s a virtual launch party!

What does a virtual launch party look like?

  • A bunch of friends are hosting posts and interviews on their blog…
  • Plus, I’ll be on twitter to chat about the book and answer questions from 10pm to 11pm Central time (on TUES that is. And I know, kind of late, but with a toddler, I can’t guarantee earlier 😉 hashtag: #FlightofBlue
  • AND there will be an exciting giveaway running that night…

To be sure not to miss it, sign up for my mailing list here.

Join the party on Goodreads and/or Facebook!

The Lucky 7 Meme

The spell of the Lucky 7 Meme has been cast upon me by Becca J. Campbell and Lisa Voisin, both lovely ladies and talented writers. And when double-spelled like that, I find myself compelled to comply 😉

Here are the rules:
Lucky 7 Meme Rules:
1. Go to page 77 of your current manuscript.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy the next 7 lines (sentences or paragraphs) and post them as they’re written. No cheating!
4. Tag 7 other writers and pass the meme on.

Here’s the rub for me… I currently have 2 WIP and as I’m not ready to reveal details about the sequel to Flight of Blue at the moment, I’m going to post lines from the formatted version of Flight of Blue.

I think it’s funny what random lines are found using this method, but here goes 😉

No one spoke until the older Opossums had carefully slid down the ladder, and then Ernest turned to the group. “We’d like to treat Reginald now, if you could just let him down.”

“Of course.” They lowered the injured Opossum to the ground and the older Opossums gathered around.

Ah, so this was the medical team then, Kai observed. The older ones were the doctors and the younger ones were their assistants or students. They leaned in and started feeling and examining Reginald’s injured leg and hip, while Ernest climbed the nearest ladder and again headed back towards what looked like the core of the Opossum Municipality.

This time Ernest returned with a single middle-aged looking Opossum (though Kai wasn’t quite sure how he was mentally assigning ages to talking animals that he’d known about for less than twenty-four hours).

This new Opossum moved somewhat slowly, but more with a regal, look-at-me walk, as if he had something to show off, but he was hoping you’d just notice it yourself and compliment him on it if he just walked slowly enough for you to see.

All at once, Kai noticed something weird. All of the Opossums, with the exception of Reginald, were wearing clothes. It had never seemed odd to him that Reginald didn’t wear any clothes, after all, have you ever seen a Opossum with clothes on? Right, didn’t think so. But now that all the other Opossums were wearing clothes it suddenly seemed indecent to be seeing Reginald there clad only in his fur. Kai cleared his throat uncomfortably and turned away from where the medical team was hard at work on Reginald.

Now… who to tag? (insert evil writer laugh here)
