Seven, Seven, Seven…If Only This Were a Slot Machine!

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. Due to circumstances beyond my control (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!), I’m running a little behind. Fortunately for me–at least in this instance it’s fortunate–I have more than one WIP to choose from. Here are seven lines from Sucker-Punched, about five brothers who are all pro wrestlers…

Mad Dog was in a foul mood. To say he wasn’t crazy about the idea of losing the championship–especially to me–had to be the understatement of the century.

“I may have to let you have it, but I don’t have to make it easy for you, Cantwell,” he growled as he yanked open his locker. “You just might be having your victory party in the hospital.”

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.
