Liz M 10.8 - Rosemary's Task - Lucky Sevens
A. Read a book with 7 words in the title, including unique subtitles (generic subtitles such as "A Novel" or "A Story" do not count) OR
B.
Read a book with 7 letters in the author’s first name OR
C.
Read a book whose year of first publication ends in 7.
Each option may only be used once for task and once for combo points. This task cannot be used for multiple points.

Christin (Lunaratu) | 267 comments For the B option I have thus far:

Delilah S. Dawson
Richard Kadrey
Chelsea Quinn Yarbro
Brandon Sanderson

the first three of these have also written books that would combo with 10.7 at least as they definitely have monsters like devils, vampires, etc.

Unfortunately, "Volume One" is not a unique subtitle, so it does not qualify for this task.

Ismaa Khan | 173 comments Mine is going to be The War of Don Emmanuel's Nether Parts by Louis de Bernières

may count for 20.1 Commonwealth writers prize for first best book in South Asia and Europe 1991

Cory Day (cors36) | 1194 comments For the seven letter first name, can I assume we're going with the author's name as published, rather than the author's real name? I'm hoping a book may qualify for Square Peg, and the author's published pen name does not qualify for this task, but his real name does...


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 8435 comments Yes, we will consider only the name as authored.
