    Thomas Weaver: Getting ready to publish book four later this month, and the author (also an AuthorBitz member, but he doesn't talk much) is already hard at work on the NEXT book.

  • Thomas Weaver
    Thomas Weaver: The work on this work-in-progress is currently out of the author's hands: the copyeditor (*waves*) is about two-thirds of the way through the manuscript, and then it'll go out to beta readers... No absolute date set yet, but the novel will be published...  more

    Thomas Weaver: Yeah, I know it's more than seven lines HERE, but it's only seven in the actual manuscript. Anyway, here's another excerpt from my clone-sibling's WIP.

    Judith Rook: Here is a 7-7-7 excerpt. I did not use Timothy's template because I wanted to include a pic. I couldn't include workable links to my published books, but if I use this as a tweet or Facebook post I will add them. #777Club

    Timothy Bateson: I got bored today, so I knocked this up in Canva... I'd appreciate people's thoughts. I believe I left enough space to put a Title, Author Name, Book Text and a link...

      Judith Rook I would say there's space enough for what you want, and the layout is neat and efficient.
      I used to use Canva quite a lot, but I've gone onto Pizap.

      Thomas Weaver If I understand this correctly, you made it as a sort of template for participants in the club to fill with their story excerpt, etc. If that's the case, this is a great idea. As Judith said, there's plenty of space (without there being TOO much) for the...  more

      Timothy Bateson That's exactly the idea I put my book title, and author link at the bottom right of the empty box then created a text block for the excerpt... And I'm cheating a little... I'm doing this challenge in a Facebook group too, so I'll be posting 2 seven-line...  more

      Thomas Weaver Timothy: (Sorry I keep needing to ask for more info...) So do you want all of us to use this template?

      Timothy Bateson That's entirely up to the individual. I just like messing around in Canva

    Timothy Bateson: Okay folks... We're going to be doing another 7-7-7 Promo... It's the 7th day of the 7th month, so let's knock this one out of the park...
    We're looking at giving readers a sample of our work:
    * from page 7 (or a multiple of 7) of our current WIP (edited...  more

      Judith Rook I like this idea. I'll check back for the graphic. (It's still July 5th in Western Australia.)

      Thank you, Timothy.

      Judith Rook Can you remind us as the 7th day approaches, please? What if you only have one WIP going? Can you post in The 7-7-7 Club only once? I like this idea a lot.

    Stephen Trolly: The night passed peacefully. No screams of nightwatchmen, terrified of an enemy advance. No panicked bells tore exhausted warriors from the little rest they could glean. Only the gently-falling rain disturbed the otherwise absolute silence.
