It’s Friday again, so you know what that means. It’s #FirstLineFriday!

Thanks for tagging me, Rami Ungar!  If you like science fiction, thrillers, or horror, I think you’ll enjoy his books.  He’s one of the nicest people you’ll ever come across on the internet.

Now if you’re unfamiliar with this meme, let me break it down for you. On Fridays, you do the following:

  1. Create a post on your blog titled #FirstLineFriday, hashtag and all.
  2. Explain the rules like I’m doing now.
  3. Post the first one or two lines of a potential work, a work-in-progress, or a completed or published story.
  4. Ask your readers for feedback and then encourage them to try #FirstLineFriday on their blogs (tagging is encouraged but not necessary).

I’m going to pick the very first couple of lines from The Earl’s Scandalous Wife.

“No, I can’t,” Miss Paula Leighton protested. She shook her head, her fists clenched at her sides. “I won’t do it, Stewart!”

I have two neat tidbits to share about this book.  April Gregory McPhillips made the Perry doll that is in the picture next to the paperback copy of this book!  Isn’t he cute?

Thank you, April!!!!!!

If you like the idea of #FirstLineFriday, why not try it yourself? It’s fun, and for novelists it’s great practice on openings. In fact, I think I’ll tag someone.

Okay, let’s look at my most recent followers, see who I want to torture tag…

I choose Lauralynn Elliott (another super nice person I know)! Congratulations, you’re being tortured you’ve been tagged! You have today or next week to do #FirstLineFriday. Good luck, and have fun with it!
