#FirstLineFriday (Chapter Twenty-Two)

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 Twenty-Two of Masque of the Vampire – which is available  at all ebook retailers:

Katelina got ready for bed. She hadn’t seen Sarah all day, and her friend’s bedroom was sill deserted

Yeah, it’s a boring one. While editing the book, I did backtrack and rearrange some of the early chapters so they have better beginnings, alas this was not one of them. But, they can’t all start mid fight scene.

What do you think? What’s your first line for the week?

FLFIt’s April Fool’s Day, but no foolin’ here, it really is 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).

Today’s first line comes from Chapter Twenty-One of Masque of the Vampire – which is available TODAY at all ebook retailers* :

Terror sliced through Katelina and left her legs watery. She backed slowly down the hall and screamed silently for Samael.

What do you think?

What’s your first line for the week?

*This post was scheduled in advance, so this may no longer be the first line of the chapter.

#FirstLineFriday (Chapter Twenty)

FLFSpring is in the air! Or it’s supposed to be. Either way, it’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 Twenty of Masque of the Vampire (available for pre-order with an April 1st release date) :

Katelina looked for Ark at breakfast. The haughty vampire was nowhere in sight, and she relaxed.

These are as boring as the last two. I may need to break the chapters up differently.

#FirstLineFriday (Chapter Nineteen)

FLF

feel free to snag this for your own posts!

And it’s time for First Line Friday – the day when you share a first line from something you’re working on, have published, or maybe just jotted down. To participate, title your post #FirstLineFriday (hashtag and all) and feel free to share your link on my blog or on Rami Ungar’s (the brains behind #FLF)

Today’s first line is from Chapter Nineteen of my novel in progress, Masque of the Vampire.

A quick check revealed all their suspects were at breakfast, except William. Katelina wasn’t sure how much more proof Jorick needed.

This is another of those sort of “mid thought” beginnings where you really need the chapter before to know what’s going on, but it’s not mind numbing, anyway.

Or is it? What do you think? What’s your first line for the week?

Have a good one!

#FirstLineFriday (Chapter Eighteen)

FLFBeware, beware the ides of March! Yeah, okay, so that’s not until next week, but it made a good opening for my  #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 Eighteen of Masque of the Vampire (available for pre-order with an April 1st release date) :

A loud crash startled Katelina and she looked up. Some of the cages had been knocked over.

As you can guess, the action continues over from the previous chapter, so I know it makes it hard for you to judge, but still, what do you think?

What’s your first line for the week?

#FirstLineFriday (Chapter Seventeen)

Today’s first line is from Chapter Seventeen of my novel in progress, Masque of the Vampire.

Katelina woke when Jorick bolted upright. She blinked tired eyes against the vague knowledge there’d been a sound.

This is okay. Not 100% happy with it, but it’s not terrible. What do you think?

What’s your first line for the week?

Have a good one!

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

Katelina gaped at the grisly sight before her. Nestled in the center of the broken weeds and sprinkled with snow lay the torn body of a boy.

Might seem like it’s giving something away, but since the book description says there’s some murders going on, it’s about time we got one. (It took a LOT longer to get to it in the plot than I initially imagined.)

What do you think?

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

The next evening, Katelina casually strolled into the larger dining room where the guests had their breakfast. Petta was in attendance, as was the vampire Jorick had pointed out as Möngkedai the night before.

Another set up line. Or pair of lines. In case you can’t tell, by now they are at the mansion and the two week long party is in full swing. Though, this line may move. After I fill in all of the “add this” sections I’ve left in fourteen, it may be too long and need cut up. I guess we’ll see.

What do you think?

#FirstLineFriday (Chapter Fourteen)

FLFHappy Valentine’s Day!

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

Katelina woke suddenly. There was the memory of a voice, though she didn’t know what it had said, or who it belonged to.

All right, I cheated. The first line of the chapter is actually a HUGE spoiler, so I skipped to the next “scene” and took the first line from it. To be fair, I may rearrange where chapter breaks are, and this *could* end up at the beginning.

Anyway, what do you think?

Katelina woke in the middle of the day. A sound in the hallway drew her attention, and she looked sharply to Jorick.

Yay! It gives us some tension and action.
