Mention Monday - Hookers

Oh yeah, that title caught your attention, right? Stopped by to see what I have to say about hookers? Well, that's cool, everyone gets a little, erm, kinky? sometimes. :p

Oh, wait...Before I get into the talk about Hookers, I want to give y'all an awesome Twitter status update. My awesome writer friend tweeted this and it's so perfect. Check it out.

Okay, seriously though. Today is the Hookers and Hangers blogfest hosted by the lovely women over at Falling For Fiction. If you're unaware of this fest or don't know about the awesomeness of the ladies at that blog, check it out. <---That will take you to the linky for all the blogs signed up too, btw. :)



The Hookers (post 1st sentence of X number of chapters) post is today and the Hangers (post last sentence in each chapter) is on Wednesday. I'm using my current WIP, Unbind Me. (That's the working title at least).

So, here are chapters 1-7. :)

Chapter 1: The wind whips through my hair making it blow wildly around my face as I dodge about the elms and cottonwoods.


Chapter 2: Is it sad that I wanted him to be here?

Chapter 3: “Where were you?” Father asks before I’ve made it completely through the door.

Chapter 4: Would Lucas risk coming near our home?

Chapter 5: Rory, I think you should go check on Rourke.

Chapter 6: Lucas’ jaw is set and his chin is lifted a little, the determination evident on his face.

Chapter 7: I step out of the bathroom to see Declan sitting on the edge of my bed in silky blue pajama pants and nothing else.

Yeah, so...There you go. (Lol, that rhymed :D  )

Thanks for stopping by, y'all. Have an awesomely Hooking Monday. :)

I like your first line. The movement in it is intriguing.

Great hookers! Loving the name Declan and his pajama pants ;)

Cassie Mae said...

I'm with Hope, Declan is one of my favorite names :)

Loved all of these! Great job!

Aldrea Alien said...

Oh my, that chapter one's sentence. Beautiful. I can almost see it.

SC Author said...

I shouldn't have even been surprised by number 7... ;) Can I just say, I LOVE this WIP? What I've read of it, anyway :)

Leigh Covington said...

Great lines! Your book sounds really interesting. I want to know more of what's going on! :)

Great posting and nice hookers. Definitely can't wait for your hangers. Enjoyed reading

Jenny Morris said...

I'm with my fellow FFF girls, love the name Declan. And the first line pulls me into the setting and that last line makes me want to see Declan in his PJ"s. ;) Great job, can't wait to read your hangers!

Jenny Morris said...

Oh and that Twitter was hilarious!

Jeannette said...

I like your first line for setting the scene, and I (like others here) like the last line. I never thought silk pajama bottoms would sound sexy, but maybe with a name like Declan he can pull them off. :) Cheers, Jeannette

#2 is my favorite. It made me feel kinda sad with her and empathy keeps me in the story.

Lynn(e) Schmidt said...

Chapter 2 tugged on my heart strings quite a bit. Awesome job!

DL Hammons said...

Uh oh...I hope its nice and warm where Declan is! :)

Kelley Lynn said...

Twitter was so funny!

Really like the first line. I feel like I'm there with her.

I like #3 :D you can almost hear the blood freeze in her veins ;)

Nick Wilford said...

Nice opening line. I'd want to know what she's running from, or to. These are all good, though! #4 has great tension.

Ink in the Book said...

I liked #1. I stepped right into the pages of the book...

Trisha said...

The silky pajama pants is intriguing... lol. But I think this is my fave:

The wind whips through my hair making it blow wildly around my face as I dodge about the elms and cottonwoods.

There's just something awesome about running through (what I assume is) a forest :)
