I've been tagged by Anna Belfrage in the 7 X 7 game, whereby I post seven lines from any page in my WIP ending with a seven.
I'm supposed to nominate seven more authors but I'm about to go out - so if anyone wants to nominate themselves and add your own seven lines from page seven of you next book below please do so!
This is my contribution from On The Account.

“What was it?” he asked.
