If I Let You Go ARC Winners and a Meme

This week flew by!

I've been busy, busy, busy getting organised for all these book releases! I should have things under more control next week, but I also might take next week away from blogging to recharge again. After that, I will be back to normal again - or as normal as I ever get! :p

Thanks to all of you who have helped with the If I Let You Go cover reveal and signed up to the bloghop! Signups will be open until the bloghop starts so there's still time! Details are here.

In my last post I offered 5 ARCs to those of you who commented! I did a random draw, and the winners are:

Trisha
Jackie
Elizabeth
Christine
Tyson

I will be in touch very soon!

Now, I was also tagged by Trisha in the Lucky 7 Meme today! I have done it before, but with Game On. I was going to do with my novella but ... it doesn't have 77 pages! So, I will share a glimpse into Blindsided instead!

Here are the details:

The Rules:

  1. Go to page 77 of your current MS/WIP.
  2. Go to line 7.
  3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating.
  4. Tag 7 authors.
  5. Let them know.
 Please note, this is quite close to the end of the story, and comes from Jesse Shaw's POV :)



“Okay,” I laughed. “What shall we do instead?”
“Well, I was thinking that, as Dad’s at work, Mum’s shopping again, Hunter’s out with Willow and Georgia is taking a nap, we should do something we’ve never done before.”
Her eyes sparkled playfully, and her lips curved into the kind of grin that made my heart hammer in my chest. For a second, I was transported back to Mischa’s party, when we danced together. That was the last time she’d looked at me that way.
“Oh really?” I asked. “What did you have in mind?”
 


I would usually tag, but a lot of people have done this already so, if you want to do it go ahead!

Have a wonderful weekend!

  15. Yay for the snippet :D I know what you mean about stuff that doesn't have 77 pages ;) I also found myself sometimes on ends of chapters that had less than 7 lines to choose from ;) So it took a while to find an appropriate snippet for my post.

    So excited that I won the ARC, gonna read it ASAP!
