Today starts the first do of Falling for Fiction's (FFF) Hookers and Hangers blogfest. Here are the deets from the announcement page:
Hookers & Hangers Blogfest July 16th & July 18th
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!
My first three "hookers" are from the first three chapters of my women's fiction novel Not Her Mothers Fate:
Chapter 1: Amy Thompson pressed her back against the wall as another noisy group of drunken revelers stumbled their way towards the awaiting beer keg.
Chapter 2: Amy worked from 10pm to 6am, Tuesday through Saturday.
Chapter 3: Tired and looking forward to an early bedtime, Amy groaned in frustration as she came home to a house bulging with people and noise.
