#FirstLineFriday – #GiveawayContest – #FreeEBook Downloads

It’s that time again, folks, so grab your thinking caps! Our #FirstLineFriday quiz is here, again. This time around, I’m not going to make a single prediction (out loud) about whether this will prove to be an easy one, or very, very difficult. I’ll just judge by how fast the correct answers arrive in my Inbox.

As always, the rules are simple:

  1. Be one of the first five people to email me before the game ends at noon, with the title and author of the correct book. 
  2. Do not reply here on the blog. Email only: marciameara16@gmail.com
  3. Honor System applies. No Googling, please.
  4. Submissions end at noon, or when I receive 5 correct answers, whichever comes first.
  5. Winners who live in the U.S. may request a free download of any one of my books for themselves, or for someone of their choice. OR, if they’ve read all of the offered books, they may request a free download of my next publication.
  6. Winners who live elsewhere may request a PDF or Mobi file of the same books, since Amazon won’t let me gift you from the site.

Now, without further ado, here is your #FirstLineFriday quiz of the week:

“It was night again. The Waystone Inn lay in silence, and it was a silence of three parts.”

I’ll be on the alert for your emailed guesses. Good luck, everybody!

    • I know how you feel. This one, I recognized due to the clue in the answer, otherwise, I’d have been lost, too. But its a MUCH more current book than most have been, we we’ll see how everyone fares. 🙂

    • I thought so, too. I love that last phrase. It works to make a reader want to know how a silence is divided into parts, doesn’t it? Hope someone gets it. I figured it would either be dead simple or tricky as heck. We’ll see. 🙂

    • It’s been on my Kindle for too long, and is just my kind of book, so I’m thinking now’s the time for me to get started on it. And I agree, the opening line is lovely, and stirs my curiosity, for sure. 🙂

    • And once again, #FirstLineFriday helps us by not only showcasing these great opening lines, but by introducing us to books we realize we can’t live without! 😀 I love it! (And I do it myself, all the time.) I’ve been planning to read this one for ages, and by golly, I’m gonna DO it! It’s exactly the kind of book I love, genre and all, and it’s time for me to see if it’s as good as they say. A book with that many excellent reviews surely MUST be, right? 🙂

        • You’re welcome, Robbie. That’s the third reason I enjoy doing this quiz. You get a chance to ponder some of the greatest first lines ever written, and take a guess as to where it came from. You get a chance to win free books, and not always just mine. And you get a chance to hear about books you may not have noticed before. I hope everyone thinks these are good reasons to drop by on Friday mornings and see what’s up for the day. 🙂 Enjoy The Name of the Wind when you get a chance to read it! I’m pretty sure I’m going to. 🙂

            • I love scanning lists of “Best First Lines.” They are pretty much all noteworthy, of course, or they wouldn’t have made the lists. But there are always a few that really stand out, and I know would pull me right into the story from the start. Glad this quiz prompted you to do some first line browsing of your own, and it’s great you can share that with Gregory. (I’ll bet you’ll nail a few of the upcoming ones much more easily now, and good for you!) 🙂
