Guess what? I got tagged - three times! Cherie, C. M. Brown, and Cassie Mae are responsible (all names start with a C ... you know what I think of that? Cool!). And so, without further (or much) ado, here are the rules:
1. Go to page 77 of your current ms.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences, and post them as they're written. No cheating.
4. Tag 7 other victims, er, authors.
My WiP (The Dragon's Heart) page 77 isn't ready, and I'm, uh, not allowed to share anything from my current MS (Woven), so here's a snapshot of GroundShaker, my first stab at epic (door-stopper) fantasy.

“Breathe, Jesin,” Old Father invited. “Put down the knife. You do not know if this man is responsible for your sister’s death as much as I. We can never know unless we ask. Let us take him to your home and tend to him, as well as your father. He may be willing to talk, then.”

Now, here are the lucky 7 recipients!

I'm David, and beware the Ides of March!
