Yep, that's my book! So proud of it. Only about three books until release day! So excited! A long time ago, before my fabulous editor, Jennifer Lawler, contracted it for Crimson, I entered Karin Tabke's First Line Contest. You put in your first line, people voted and if you made it through, you added another line and so on. I got through to about the sixth round. I'm still proud of that. It was tough, the competition was fierce. I still wish Karin ran that contest.
At any rate, I'm posting my first couple of lines here.
"Damn, it's hotter than the devil's backyard out here." Castaña Castillo took one hand off the steering wheel just long enough to swipe at the trickle of sweat running down the nape of her neck and adjust the volume on the radio. One of her favorites, "Amarillo by Morning", wafted from the speakers.
Your turn. I'd love to read the first line or the first paragraph of your WIP, upcoming release, or best seller.
