The "Look" Challenge from @bellaleone - Tag @krystalwade @ToiThomas @ninapost @JacquieRogers @sharonbayliss @JessaRusso @Jaleta_Clegg @EliaStAnne @MSmithBooks

I've been tagged. According to the rules, you're supposed to do a search in your work in progress for the word "look" and then paste the surrounding paragraph(s) and tag as many people as possible. Here's my teaser from Fall, the second book in the Ragnarok Prophesies series:



 “Did you get your fill of the snow?” Dad asked as Dace carried me back into the kitchen. He stood at the sink, scrubbing paint from his hands. The roller and paint cans were gone, and so was Ronan.
“Looks good, Dad,” I said, checking out the finished product. Aside from the paper tape around the trim and the new paint smell, you couldn’t even tell the wall had been a ruined mess just a few days ago. Maybe I’d be able to eat dinner without needing a blanket for once. Nice.
Dad winked at me.

“She got cold.” Dace settled me back into my chair at the table before moving into the kitchen proper. He started rifling through cabinets, pulling out mugs, cocoa mix and various other ingredients. “Did you know her eyes actually gleam when she sees snow?”

My tags: Krystal Wade, Toinette Thomas, Nina Post, Sharon Bayliss, Jacquie Rogers, Jessa Russo, Jaleta Clegg, Michelle Smith, Elia St. Anne.
