My first nomination!!!

Hello once again Readers!!!!

 So how was your Father’s Day weekend? Our’s was pretty relaxing. I made a breakfasty feast for my husband yesterday, which was delicious, and then we went to lunch with my mother and grandmother. The sun was out and the breeze was slight, normal for Florida weather. My two kiddies enjoyed their time with their dad and I enjoyed his smile. He spent the majority of the day smiling, so I feel my mission to make him feel appreciated was fully accomplished.

For some other happy news…I was tagged for the Lucky 7 MeMe Award by a fellow blogger and writer Michelle Proulx. Check out her blog, she’s really funny.  I never thought I’d be nominated for anything, especially my blog, but I guess it’s my lucky day. So what does this mean? Well, for me it means a heaping ball of excitement because it’s gives me a reason to share a blip of my WIP, Embracing the Flames, the second book to my Trilogy. Yay!

First off, here are the rules:

  1. Go to the 7th or 77th page of your Work in progress.
  2. Go to the 7th line of the page.
  3. Copy the next 7 sentences or paragraphs. Remember, they must be as they are typed.
  4. Tag 7 authors.
  5. Let them know they’re it!

Okay, so since it’s the Lucky 7, I will choose page seven. This is actually from the chapter that I just added for Aurora’s magic and shifting training. The 7th line in, is when Aurora is in the midst of a fight scene with Fenn, both of them practicing their new skills. Aurora is having trouble controlling her dragon side and has found herself not only battling with Fenn, but with her self-control as well. Here goes nothing:

     The dragon spirit in me pushed forward, refusing to take anymore of this beating. No! I said internally, trying everything I could to remain in control. The confines of the artificial whirlwind had finally died down. I felt Astral’s strength pouring into me, waiting for me to tap into, but I refused. I was going to do this on my own or else. Fenn released me from the silencing spell, so I swooped down, grazing his face with the claws of my feet. “Protectio!” I shouted as a bubble of protection surrounded me.

Those are the seven sentence starting at the seventh line. Still a WIP, but everyday I grow closer to being finished. Now for the next rule. To tag or not to tag. I’m still new to following other’s blogs, so I have to actually search a few in order to find seven that I don’t know and who hasn’t been nominated (to my knowledge) yet. Here are the seven I chose:

1. http://olshepp.wordpress.com/ – Check her out.

2.http://zencherry.wordpress.com/ – Pretty awesome.

3.http://susanmacatee.wordpress.com/ – if you like reading romance novels.

4.http://mobyjoecafe.com/- made me laugh.

5.http://journeytoatlantis.wordpress.com/ – a fellow fantasy lover.

6.http://verado.wordpress.com/ – Just because she loves 30 Seconds to Mars too!

And finally,

7.http://drinkteaanddream.wordpress.com/ – interesting.

Okay so I’ve done it. Phew. Now I must take the kiddos for a walk. I’ve dedicated the past two hours to searching for others to nominate. I am tired. Fresh air screams my name! Then onto editing my second novel. What did you think about my excerpt? Boring? Interesting? Indulge me in your thoughts :)

Echelon out ♥
