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:
- Be one of the first five people to email me before the game ends at noon, with the title and authorof the correct book.
- Do not reply here on the blog.Email only: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Honor System applies. No Googling, please.
- Submissions end at noon, or when I receive 5 correct answers, whichever comes first.
- 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.
- 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.
