How is everyone doing with the A to Z Challenge! My colors are doing better than I thought they would. :-D
Most Wednesdays, I stop by to share with you a piece of what I'm reading using Random.org. At the moment, I'm in the process of beginning to query again, and one of the agencies tells you to prepare a proposal just in case. In that proposal, you need to list your competition. I've never even THOUGHT of competition! So I Googled YA Fantasy novels and stumbled upon a few that I would most likely be up against.
So I put a couple on hold at my library and am now currently reading Kristin Cashore's Graceling. (Hey, and today's letter happens to be G for A to Z!)
People in this story have what they call a grace, which is a power of some sort. Some fight really well, some read minds, etc. Katsa, the main character, can kill. Yikes. These gracelings are marked by having two different colored eyes (something I actually use in my story, but not in the same way, but it's still so weird!). Katsa has started a protective council, and they've found themselves in a bit of a mystery. I can't wait to see whodunnit. ;)
Now, for the sharing. Random.org has helped me look through the 472 pages and has given me page..............391.
There are 20 lines on this page, so Random has chosen line.......................11.
She didn't want everyone talking about it and pointing it out and treating her this way. She loosened the neck of her coat and tucked the ring inside.
Ahhh, what are they talking about?! I have a ways to go, so I can't wait to see what's going on.
Reading anything interesting?
