Linda Joyce tagged me to play The 7-7-7- Game.

Please check out her blog and read her seven lines of Bayou Born, the first novel in her Fleur de Lis series which will make its appearance mid-April.

Directions to play the 7-7-7 game:

• Go to page 77 of your own book or manuscript.
• Count down seven lines.
• Copy and paste the seven lines that follow.
Then, Tag seven authors to do the same.
(Checkout my Facebook post. I’ve tagged my seven.)

My 7-7-7 offering is from my new manuscript, Beneath The Lake, a time travel romance, with strong historical elements; think Back To The future meets Time Traveler’s Wife. Lacey Montgomery’s life is riddled with rejection and abandonment. When she walks in on her boyfriend’s affair, she drives off in the throes of a torrential storm, hydroplanes and is hurled into the depths of an icy black lake. She awakens in the arms of a strange man, in a town she’s never heard of––34 years before she is born. The desperation to find her way home shifts as Lacey falls in love with a town destined to be erased from the face of the earth, and Bobby Reynolds, the man who vows to protect it. The struggle to save them both heals her internal conflict, while restoring Bobby’s belief in true love, spinning a star-crossed love story that defies time, as Lacey tries to prevent her new life from slipping beneath the lake.

Here is my 7-7-7 entry:

“What’s so interesting in the news this morning?”

“Nothing much.” I folded the paper before handing it to him. “Here, you read and relax while I start breakfast.” Standing, I poured a cup of hot coffee, then set it in front of him. “Now, which would you prefer, eggs and bacon, pancakes, French toast?”

“Surprise me,” Bobby said, glancing down at the headlines. “I guess you’ll be heading home soon. It looks like you’ll be able to get ahold of Piper by tomorrow night.”

A lump tightened in my throat. “Yes, it does, doesn’t it?”

Dawn Of A New Day

I finally completed my new manuscript, Beneath The Lake, and had a fabulous time writing the story. Even the research was fascinating, learning the eerie lake lore surrounding Georgia’s Lake Lanier.

Kristen Stewart was so fabulous in the Twilight Series. If my new book, Beneath The Lake, were to ever become a movie, she would be the perfect actor to play the part of  the heroine, Lacey Madison Montgomery.

Beneath The Lake is a time travel romance with strong historical elements; think Back To The Future meets Time Traveler’s Wife. Lacey Montgomery’s life is riddled with rejection and abandonment. (sound familiar?) When she walks in on her boyfriend’s affair, she drives off in the throes of a torrential storm, hydroplanes and is hurled into the depths of an icy, black lake. She awakens in the arms of a strange man, in a town she’s never heard of––thirty-four years before she was born. The desperation to find her way home shifts as Lacey falls in love with a town destined to be erased from the face of the earth, and Bobby Reynolds, the man who vows to protect it. The struggle to save them both heals her internal conflict, while restoring Bobby’s belief in true love, spinning a star-crossed love story that defies time as Lacey tries to prevent her new life from slipping beneath the lake.

 

Of course, once a story is written the real work begins. Editing, agents and the publishing process will take time, but your encouragement will keep me motivated. In the mean time, I’m officially rejoining the real world again and hope to spend more time with my friends through this blog, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and actually in person. Be sure to check out my Pinterest Books & Writing board to get some insight on Beneath The Lake. Thanks for all of your support through my hibernation. I’m back!
