#FirstLineFriday #GiveawayContest #FreeDownloads

It’s Friday again, which means you have another chance to try your hand at  #FirstLineFriday, our little quiz designed to help us appreciate some of the best opening lines in literary history. From the classics of long ago to the latest best-sellers, no matter how old or how recent, everything is fair game on #FirstLineFriday. Let’s see how many of you remember this one.  

As always, the rules are simple:

  1. Be one of the first five people to email me before the game ends at 4:00pm, 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 4:00 P.M. EST, 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 mobi or 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 for! I’ve been easier on you this time, so put on your thinking caps, because here’s today’s opening line: 

“Blue Sargent had forgotten how many times she’d been told that she would kill her true love.” 

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

    • Aw, sorry it doesn’t ring any bells, Janet! It’s much more recent than some I’ve shared lately, but we’ll see if that makes a difference in how many recognize it. Thanks for stopping by, though. 🙂

    • It’s a beautiful and intriguing book, Jeanne! I agree, though. If you’d read it, you’d recognize the line, given that it contains a major hint. 😀 Sorry it’s not familiar to you, but I highly recommend checking it out once you see the answer later. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, though. Always good to see you, My Dresden Files Buddy! 😀

    • Yes, yes, and yes! We think alike (again), my friend! 😀 Let’s see how many others may have checked this fantastic series out. But I just received your email, so I can confirm, you ARE a winner. ❤ Yay! ❤

      • Two weeks ago, I was fairly certain, last week was a guess, but this one… I knew I had it. 😎 Yes!

        It is an amazing series and I hope, after your reveal, people check it out. People who may otherwise not have looked twice at it. If it’s outside their “usual read”, you know? Excellent writing is excellent writing. Good storytelling is good storytelling. ❤

        • You are exactly right, Sarah, and my hope is that some folks will take a look (if they’ve never seen it before) or a second look if they have, and will give this book a go. The whole series, in fact. Not that she isn’t selling a kajillion of them, and deservedly so, but just because it’s too good to miss out on. 😀

    • I love this series of books, and it’s new enough that I thought there might be quite a few of you guys familiar with it. We’ll see how it goes as the day rolls on. Stay tuned for the answer at 4:00, and thanks for stopping by, Harmony! 🙂

    • Aww, don’t cry, Pam! It appears that this line is not nearly as recognizable as I expected it to be, but then, I haven’t guessed correctly on that aspect very often. 😀 Stay tuned. The answer (and my recommendation on these books) is coming somewhere around 4:00pm, if we don’t lose power on this rainy, gloomy day. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    • I’m especially happy to share this one later, Trish, as it is the opening line in a series I absolutely LOVED. Sorry you don’t recognize it, but maybe you’ll decide to check it out after you learn more about it. Thanks for stopping by today! 🙂
