This is actually from a tag on Facebook, but I thought I would share with my readers here at Sharkbait Writes. Enjoy!
My vampire-writing buddy Steven Montano tagged me with the #TheLuckySeven meme where you choose seven lines from either page 7 or 77 in your current work in progress and tag seven other writers to do the same. What the heck. I’d better participate or Steve will send a horde of vampires after me . . . and I’m not talking about the sparkly lovey-dovey kind either.
So, here goes, the seven friends I shall tag are Jack D. Albrecht Jr., Eden Baylee, Christina Esdon, Carolyn Arnold, Stephanie Fuller, Tess Thompson, and Sheilagh Lee. Of course, they are not obligated to participate, but it would be fun if they did.
Okay, now that I have that taken care of, here are the first 7 lines (draft with spoiler edits ) from page 77 in my upcoming horror novel Devil’s Nightmare: Premonitions.
Aaron watched the man pound on the front door with his fist. “Christopher!” He looked behind him with fear in his eyes and yelled, “Open the damn door!”
Several explosions of thunder drowned out the sounds of the man’s screams when razor sharp claws tore into his back. The beast bit into the man’s right leg and jerked him backwards, causing him to fall onto his chest with his face hitting the wooden porch with force. A trail of blood followed a path away from the front door, which opened seconds too late.
Devil’s Nightmare: Premonitions is the sequel to the Amazon best selling horror Devil’s Nightmare available for both Kindle (or Kindle Reading Apps) and paperback (at Amazon and Barnes & Noble). Premonitions is slated for worldwide publication this fall.
Robert “Sharky” Pruneda is author of the Amazon Kindle bestselling horror novel Devil’s Nightmare and the contemporary family motor sports drama Pursuit of a Dream (Victory Lane: The Chronicles). He lives in south Texas and has called the Lone Star State his home all of his life. Pruneda is also very active in social media and an avid gamer who can often be found fighting side-by-side with friends on his favorite first-person shooter . . . but he prefers survival horror.
