Texture from the Coachella Valley

Our trip to Palm Springs was grand (even though it rained one day!) During our sightseeing adventures, I snapped pictures of the wonderful texture of the landscape and foliage.

Luck Seven Meme Tag (Hey Shaddy, Gully - you're it)

I’ve been tagged for the Lucky Seven Meme by Dana Mason. If you don’t know Dana, go check out her chosen seven at I'm excited for the upcoming release of her new novel Dangerous Embrace in October.

Here are the rules of the game:
  1. Go to page 77 of your current manuscript or WIP.
  2. Go to line 7.
  3. Copy down the next 7 sentences and post them as written.
  4. Tag 7 authors.
  5. Let them know.
I’m using 7 sentences starting at line 7 on page 77 from my work in progress with the trial title of "Anna of the Portrait." Diesel is Hugo's guide dog.

He heard Diesel barking and looked up to see the dog bounding down the driveway towards him. He looked behind Diesel for Hugo but he wasn’t there. Diesel stopped in front of him and he grabbed a hold of the dog’s lead and held on as he pulled him towards the cottage. 

When he arrived he found the front door wide open and Hugo inside, slumped on the couch. He reached toward him and shook his arm. Hugo groaned and grabbed his head. "Oh man, someone conked me good."

I'll pass this on to a couple of my blogger buddies to see if they are interested in playing along.
