Hi internet friends and assorted peoples,
I just wanted to let everyone know who has possibly come across this site that I am no longer very active on it (well...duh) and have created a new website and blog!
So please, if you are curious and want to make friends and chat books and social work and all that good stuff, come on over to karalucasauthor.com, because that's where I'll be.
Happy writing, happy reading, and I hope to connect with you very soon!

The 7-7-7- Challenge
So I am notorious for not being the best blogger in the world, but for like the tenth time, my good buddy Lora Rivera challenged me to one of those tag-now-you're-it type of blog posts.
But this one intrigued me, to be sure. I hope you guys are as intrigued as I am! Here are the rules:
Flip to page 77 of your current WIP.
Find line 7.
Post the 7 sentences that follow.
Tag 7 more writers. The writers I chose are some new, some old Twitter friends. My seven writers are:
I hope you take part (it doesn't take long, I promise!), because I can't wait to see what others have written.
Page 77, line 7, and the 7 sentences that follow:
Caleb’s eyes never left mine. “Apparently I’m going to the Winter Formal.”
His face remained steady and placid, but my heart lurched as I made my face indifferent.
“Oh?” I said casually. “Who’s the lucky girl?”
Aidan broke in. “Come on, you can’t guess? Who likes our boy, here? Who’s been chasing him since he came to this school? Jenny Morgensten,” he finished, looking pleased with himself. “I set it all up.”
“That’s right,” Caleb said, slow and even. “Aidan set it all up. Isn’t that great?”
Ugh. First draft, people--be kind!
Now, I can't wait to see other people's 777 offerings...

. Christmas Eve always makes me think of people who are lonely, without friends and family to share the holiday with. I wish I could gather them all up and make them not so lonely. I wish I could do more. But I was thinking, that as a writer, we do something remarkable, whenever we write something, or read a work from another author. We connect. And even though I may be reading, or writing, alone--I am connecting to the people who are reading my book, and the people whose books I am reading. It is amazing and profound, really, how books connect us. And that, I think, is what the human experience is all about. Connecting. Learning and growing. And ultimately, loving. Merry Christmas, everyone. And I wish you all much success in the New Year.
