#FirstLineFriday (Chapter Six)

FLFIt’s time for #FirstLineFriday! On Friday, authors post the first one or first two lines of a potential work, a work-in-progress, or a published work  on their blog, and title the post #FirstLineFriday (just like this). It’s  a lot of fun, so feel free to join in! You can share your link on my blog comments, or on Rami Ungar’s (the brains behind FLF).

Today’s first line comes from Chapter Six of Masque of the Vampire (available for pre-order with an April 1st release date) :

If Jamie was there it could mean only one thing: trouble.

This one is far more to my taste- snappy and catchy, but I know that every chapter can’t start that way, just as they can’t all end mid-excitement.

What do you think?

What’s your first line for the week?signature for white

    That first line does grab the attention of a reader.

  2. Here’s mine: ‘I’m going to tear out your liver, and after I’ve done that I’m going to burn your planet to cinders, but slowly, so I don’t miss any of it.’

    It’s not a romance.

  3. Well, there’s the occasional kiss in between planet burnings

  4. is it my video card or is there something wrong with your blog. A lot of horizontal lines are appearing. Maybe it’s time to hurry up and buy my new machine before this one blows up – again.

  5. They’re appearing on my screen as long horizontal lines. that settles it. On boxing day I’m off to buy my new computer.
