Time for another #FirstLineFriday folks, and fair warning: I’ve about run out of lines on my list that would be easily recognizable, so I’m now choosing them because I find them remarkable in one way or the other. They are the kinds of lines we should all take a look at and learn something from. And if YOU are lucky enough to recognize this one, which I find extremely amusing, then YAY! I will be delighted to declare you a winner, and will compliment you on being so well-read!
PLEASE READ these simple rules, just to refresh yourself on how this should be done. Thanks.
- 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.
- Do not reply here on the blog. Email only: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Honor System applies. No Googling, please.
- Submissions end at 4:00 P.M. EST, 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 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! Put on your thinking caps, because here is today’s opening line:
“Into the face of the young man who sat on the terrace of the Hotel Magnifique at Cannes, there had crept a look of furtive shame, the shifty, hangdog look which announces that an Englishman is about to talk French.”
Remember, email answers only, please. Thanks! And now off I go to await your guesses.
