This is a fun game called Lucky 7, and Annie Nicholas tagged me and six other authors to play.
- Post seven lines from a current work by following these rules:
- Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript (fiction or non-fiction)
- Go to line 7
- Post the next 7 lines or sentences on your blog as they are (no cheating, please!)
- Tag 7 other authors to do the same
Tugging at my collar, I swallowed past the sensation of her strong fingers wrapped about my throat. As acting consul of Askara, she’d wring my neck for this betrayal, and I would deserve it.
Living at the consulate with her, putting my healing craft to good use, helping ex-slaves begin new lives in either the city of Feriana or its colony…I loved that life. And it was all a lie.
Glamour crackled over my skin, but the only things I concealed were the black spell-crafting runes inked from my forearms to my fingertips. Still, the static shock of power coating my skin led others to believe my concealment was more than cosmetic, a misconception I let flourish.
Given my consulate position, most assumed I was a female Evanti hiding in plain sight.
