I'm In The Lucky 7 Challenge!

Julia Kavan has tagged me in the Lucky 7 Sentences Challenge.
To participate, all you have to do is:

Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
Go to line 7
Post on your blog the next 7 lines, or sentences, as they are – no cheating
Tag 7 other authors to do the same"

So, here goes.

What follows is an excerpt from my latest manuscript, ‘Miss Abigail’s Room’ –  a creepy, Gothic horror novella set in a large English country house in 1896. Sam and Becky are two servants in a house where recent, unexplained events have proved disturbing:

Sam nodded. “Lord Stonefleet was always a big man. And he was imposing, with that great booming voice of his. He always seemed angry about something.”

“I know what you mean. ‘E’s ‘ardly recognizable these days. I reckon ‘e’s sickening for something.”

“He won’t see Dr. Stamford. I know. I tried. Tore me off a right strip he did.”

Becky paused in her sewing and gazed off into the distance. “Something in this ‘ouse is wrong, you know.”

 I now tag 7 authors:

Happy Easter everyone!


  1. Happy Easter, Cat.

    Very good 7. Nicely 'boding!

  2. Nicely done! I knew instantly that they were servants by their speech, and you have me curious about what's going on in that house.
    Thanks for tagging me. My seven are up now. :)

  3. Happy Easter, and what a fun idea!
