#FirstLineFriday #GiveawayContest #FreeDownloads

I love Fridays, because–#FirstLine Quiz! To me, this is about so much more than just a chance to win a free download. And I hope you all enjoy it for those extra goodies, like a chance to study some of the greatest opening lines in the history of books! Taking a look at some of them is, I believe, a good way to learn what really works for readers, and thus, might help us write better ones, ourselves.

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 authorof 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 elsewheremay request a PDF file of the same books, since, sadly, Amazon won’t let me gift you from the site.

And now, without further ado, here’s this week’s clever opening line:

“Once upon a time, there was a woman who discovered she had turned into the wrong person.” 

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

    • I thought so, too, Mae. Glad you like it. That’s the best part of this quiz, I think. Getting to study these amazing and sometimes bizarre opening lines. This one is so clever, it would definitely pull me right in. 🙂

    • Thanks, Harmony, and you know what? I think I’m going to let this one run a lot longer. It’s tricky, plus I’ve decided to make the contest a few hours longer, anyway, to give more people a chance to win. Let’s see if someone finally gets it. 😀

    • This is a really tricky one, Joan. I would NOT have gotten it, either. And so far, no one has, so you’re in good company. Still, it’s a great first line, isn’t it? 😀


    • I hope it comes to you, Priscilla. It would be nice to have a winner! 🙂 And I’m running the contest two more hours, though it might take me a bit longer than that to post the answer. I have to go out for a bit. But I WILL let you know who it is (for sure) and which book it comes from. 🙂 ❤


    • The only hint I’ll give you is that it’s more contemporary than some we’ve had. And I love that line! 😀 Hope you’ll enjoy finding out what the correct answer is! 🙂 ❤
