Deadly 777— Assassin Z

Here’s how Deadly 777 works: when you’re tagged, you post seven lines from your current WIP’s page seven, and then tag seven other authors to do the same. I was tagged by my indie hero PJ Jones. She’s not me, by the way. My indie hero is not myself. That would be narcissistic and weird.

I’m not sure why this is called deadly, feels rather harmless.

I’m currently working on my very first YA novel, Assassin Z. It’s about a teenaged assassin (who is deadly) named Zoey, who’s recently been released from training and returned to normal high school.

Brandon was last spotted outside of a known drug-den.  It’s up to me to find out if he’s still there, and then kill him.  I have ten days to complete my mission. After I finish high school, my mission completion time will be reduced to two days.  The Judicious Termination Agency gives students extra time so we can focus on our homework.  It’s both condescending and considerate. 

It’s real now. 


Hopefully all of Assassin Z will be ready to share late this year.

Time to torture seven of my writing friends: Lisa Ann Hayes, Pete Magsig, Deedee Ulintz, Jeanne Adwani, Darian Wilk, Rachel Shurig, and Peter Joseph Lewis. Is this the deadly part? Do you guys want to kill me for tagging you?

    Sounds like a COOL story, Penni Harris (not me) Jones. Indie hero? Blush…

      Thanks, PJ. I’m so glad you tagged me. I haven’t been working on this story much lately, but this little exercise has renewed my interest.

    I’ll reiterate my FB reply – No, I do not. 🙂
