Hookers And Hangers Blogfest



Today I'm writing this with a broken thumb. Bummer, right? Well, it's my own fault: Saturday I had an accident while closing my door. I absentmindedly pushed it with my left thumb and I did so with too much force.  *Snap* is all I heard. Next thing you know I'm screaming in pain.

But the show must go on.

I'll be sharing four first lines from my YA Fantasy/Paranormal/ Romance novel, PORTRAYER.

Here are the rules:

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!
 
This amazing Blogfest is hosted by the gals at Falling for Fiction. Much love to them. <3

Now, without further ado, the first sentences of my novel.

#

Chapter 1: 

It's been five years since my mom took my life.

Chapter 2: 

Marc's blood spurts across my face but I won't dare let go. 

Chapter 3: 

Maximillion Draconst lives in a hot pink high heeled shoe.

Chapter 4: 

I raise my palm toward the sky and issue a bolt of lightning at the plane.

I hope you liked what I shared. Now I'm off to see what you have for me today.

Here I come!
