Tag! I’m it!

Uncategorized October 24, 2012

Hope your shots are up to date… I’ve been tagged by Ann Laurel Kopchik in a game of author infection!

The rules are simple. Search your work in progress for the first use of “look”. Copy and paste that paragraph and the ones immediately before and after into a blog post. Then tag five other authors.

This is from the first finished draft of Habeas Corpse, my zombie novel. The sequel is in the works, and will be titled Edas Corpse.

Theo liked firm brains.

He caught himself licking his lips and glanced around to be sure no one was watching. Nope. The few remaining detectives busied themselves with paperwork, and Skeet shuffled around the body to snap pictures from every conceivable angle. The forensic technician looked ridiculous in the white paper jumpsuit, but then again, Theo supposed, so did he.

He stepped closer to the tempting spatter, mouth watering, and raised his finger toward the smallest glob. It wiggled ever so slightly in the breeze from the open window.

I’m tagging Scott A. Johnson, Kristin Dearborn, Jenn Loring, Erica McEachern, and Mary DeSantis.


Tattooed writer with an attitude seeks like minded people who appreciate snark and ink. Or snarky ink.
