Lucky Sevens

While I was innocently sleeping last night, the charming but cheeky Sommer Marsden snuck up and tagged me in the Lucky Seven Meme.

The ‘rules’ are: Go to page 7 or 77 of your latest work. Read down to the seventh line and then post online the next seven lines or sentences. Then head off and tag seven more writers.

So, my lucky chosen are: Charlotte Stein, Electra Shepherd, Kyoko Church, Madeline Moore, Maggie Nash, Kristina Wright and Madelynne Ellis

In another unexpected surprise, I've discovered that the Ellora's Cave release I've just finished edits on has already been given a release date -- of 29th June! 

Here are seven lines from Pleasure Bound.

Misreading his display of discomfort as impatience to reconvene the meeting, the dozen or so jumpy executives in the room clattered plates and coffee cups back onto the side buffet and rushed to retake their positions around the table. The table upon which he now couldn’t stop picturing Sam’s petite form bent before him, her chestnut curls splayed over the scattered lists of financials and the rounded cheeks of her rump rippling with the force of his thrusts as he fucked this god-awful frustration out of both their systems. 


  1. Yay! Love your new cover. The book looks great.

    Here are seven sentences from page seven of LOVE MACHINE:

    It was perfect: Blue would never make the same demands as a human man and robots weren’t built to gossip.

    “Besides,” she said aloud, “it’s Saturday night and I don’t have anything better to do.”

    “Please relax,” Blue said, his voice soothing. “Lie back on the cushions, Cally, and close your eyes.”

    Cally usually kept her eyes open during sex. She enjoyed seeing what was going on. But there was something about that detached, polite voice that made her do what Blue told her.

  2. (I love how Google makes me prove I'm not a robot to post a comment.)

  3. Hmm. For a mad moment there I thought I'd won something! Okay I will follow suit, as soon as the great sizzling ball of fire (aka the sun) goes down - which would be tonight.
