The wonderful girls over at Falling for Fiction are holding a fun Hookers and Hangers bloghop. Their blurb about the bloghop is:
We all know how important the first and last lines are in every chapter. This blogfest will hopefully get your HOOKERS and HANGERS polished making it impossible for readers to put down your book and leaving them begging for more!
On July 16th, post the first sentence from each chapter.
On July 18th, post the last sentence from each chapter.
Post as many as you like!
We will be judging everyone’s first three HOOKERS and first three HANGERS. We’ll each pick two winners (MOST ENTICING HOOKER and MOST IMPOSSIBLE HANGER) making a total of ten winners! Winners will receive a 10 page (double spaced) critique and a Friday Spotlight on FFF!
Sounds like fun, right? So, here are three first line Hookers (this makes me sound like a bit of a pimp) from the first three chapters of my novel:
Valkyrie Mist (YA Fantasy)
Chapter one: Today should be a great day, except it won’t be.
Chapter two: People are stealing peeks over their shoulders at me, whispering in each other’s ears as I press through the crowds.
Chapter three: I stand outside Taila’s house because anything is better than another night alone at home, ignoring that fact that something other than Dad and I live there.
Keep an eye out for the hangers coming soon.
