Many thanks (and cake) to Victoria Pearson for tagging me into this blog-hop thingy. I've never done one of these before and I'm guessing a few people out there will never have seen one before, so, for the uninitiated- here's the deal.
I'm about to post seven lines from page seven of my work in progress... "The Hungry-Man" (squee!). Exciting stuff! BUT then I will tag seven other writers who will, in turn, do the same on their blogs. I suggest you click on the links and check them out.
OK- here goes!
Harvey loves his Mummy; he’d do anything for her. They have a blissful life together, filled with cuddles, walkies and camping trips. Then, one terrible day, everything changes and their perfect life becomes a nightmare. The Hungry-Man wants his Mummy, and only Harvey can save her from a horrifying fate.
Can Harvey do what it will take to protect his Mummy? And will it be enough?
A terrifying and gripping tale of a dog’s devotion and determination to protect those he loves. The next time your dog tries to warn you about something you can’t sense, pay attention…
"Their smell puzzled me; it was upsetting, but I didn’t know why. It made the cats hiss and arch their backs before they sprinted for cover. It made us dogs pant and whine, pace and pull on our leads. It made the brave dogs bark furiously and the more timid dogs do a Wee-Wees when they didn’t mean to. I wondered too at our strong reaction when the people didn’t even see them. They were a mystery and I needed answers. I knew where to go."
Tag! You're it!The seven lovelies lined up and eager to strut their stuff are:
