Taking a break from my regular column, joining us today is Chadwick Ginther, who is helping us with our 7-7-7 challenge and sharing with us 7 lines from page 7 of Tombstone Blues, the second book in the Thunder Road Trilogy brought to you by Ravenstone Press.
Whirling away from Ted, the elf spun his spear in a broad arc. Ted wouldn’t exactly call the elf human. A shade over five foot with slender, sinewy arms and legs, the elf was mostly naked. Tattooed runes formed three linked triangles, pointing downward, bright against his too-white skin. His ears tapered to slight points and his hair flapped unbound like a matador’s cloak.
He moved with inhuman speed. That shouldn’t have surprised Ted, but it did. The spear darted. Ted hopped back on instinct.
