Better Late Than Never? Not Always….

It’s probably pointless to post this, being the last day of the promotion, but what the heck? Why not?

The Unicorns Daughter eCover

I’ve been preoccupied with family matters (my son and collaborator has been making regular trips to the hospital and orthopedic surgeon–fortunately, the news isn’t nearly as bad as it could have been), so I have a good reason for forgetting to post the latest promo for The Unicorn’s Daughter. If you haven’t read it but would like to, the ebook edition is still available on sale at Amazon until 11:59 Pacific Time tonight.

Even without me tooting my own horn, it’s not doing too badly….

I was tagged by fellow author Mari Collier to do a seven, seven, seven, which means I have to post seven lines from the seventh page of my current work-in-progress, then tag seven more authors to do the same.

I laughed, even though a part of me thought the douchebag might be serious. “Just don’t forget your trunks this time,” I told him. “I can take a lot of abuse, but the sight of your junk flappin’ around in the wake of me body slammin’ you would be cruel and unusual punishment.”

Now for the hard part: tagging seven fellow writers who will actually do it! I choose William Kendall (who probably won’t do it, but I can try to shame him into it!), Eve Gaal, Linton Robinson, Nicole Tuberty, Cathy Smith, Carole Morden, and Debra J Smith.
