# 1 - The 7 ‘need to know’ details:

Genre: Science Fiction
Where to Buy Link:
#2 - Describe this book in 7, individual, words.
Tense, Sneaky, Discriminating, Weak, Strong, Multicultural, Superhero
(Oh, I got this. Hang on. Where's my cape? This superhero squirrel can out fly that cartoon squirrel any day.)
#3 - Describe your personality in 7, individual, words.
Quiet, Reclusive, Awkward, Graceful, Persistent, Goofy, Creative
(An awkwardly, graceful squirrel? This I had to see and it looked way too familiar.)
#4 - Pretend you have just finished reading this book and in 7 sentences, describe your feelings. GO!
Wow, that was an intense ending.
I’m so sad it’s over!
I sure hope there’s another one.
This is a very inspiring read for those out there who are disabled.
Remember to look closely at people’s motivations.
Uh-oh, I don’t think Thomas and Calla are quite out of the woods yet.
(Woods? Are there any nut trees there? I could use a juicy walnut right now.)
(I want ALL the nuts! Insert maniacal squirrel chittering here.)
#5 - Rewrite a major scene in this book, in 7 words. Can be connected as in a sentence or individual.
Exhausted doctor rescues prejudiced negotiator from death.
#6 - In 7 sentences, tell me what you are writing, or working on, now?
I’m currently working on a new novel, edits for a forthcoming novel, edits for a short story in an anthology, and plans for 1-2 books in a new genre I just learned about.
The new novel I’m working on is A Suitable Arrangement the sequel to a novel called Lines of Succession.
The novel in editing phase is The Condemned Courier, which is a novelized version of a serial by the same name.
The short story in an anthology is “Chasing the Sun,” which required me to learn about Inuits and dog-sledding commands.
(Have you ever noticed that dogs will chase just about anything? Strange creatures.)
The plans are for novels or novellas – one science fiction and one fantasy – in a genre called LitRPG.
(RPG! Duck and cover! Ohhh, I get it...roll playing game. Hea, hea, honest mistake. You all can come out of hiding now.)
The first novel(la) (series?) is told from the point of view of a bird or other animal, and this one already has interest from a publisher.
The other novel(la) (series?) is science fiction, and it’s still very heavily in note-generating stage.
