#FirstLineFriday #GiveawayContest #FreeDownloads

And once again, folks, it’s Friday. Time for another interesting, intriguing, mysterious, humorous, or otherwise engaging first line for you to consider. Today’s is just weird enough that I suspect a lot of folks will recognize it, though I have to admit I haven’t read this one. Yet. It’s been on my list for a long time, though. Maybe today’s contest will be the push I need to get busy and check it out. 

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 file of the same books, since, sadly, Amazon won’t let me gift you from the site.

And now, the moment you’ve been waiting all week for! (You have been waiting for this, right?) Well, here it is. Today’s opening line:

“Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun.”

Remember, email answers only, please. Thanks! And now off I go to await your guesses.

    • I suspect you’ll be joining Mae in the headsmacking when I reveal the answer. But I could be wrong. At any rate, these are meant to challenge you a bit and make you think about the various ways an opening line can work. Glad you enjoy them, Trish! 😀 ❤


    • Glad you enjoyed it, Bette. I ended up buying the full collection yesterday, because I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t read it after all this time. I have a feeling I’m going to love these books. I’ve heard that are very funny. Hoping to add a Review page to this blog in the months ahead, so I may have a lot more to say about this one, in particular. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! ❤
