I guess it should be 5×5, but I wasn’t asked to give five, just three.
“Three what, Chris?”
Oh, I forgot to explain. I do that sometimes. I was tagged twice in another little fun Tagging McTaggy thing where I’m supposed to give the first line of the first three chapters in my latest work in progress. I’m thanking Josef Matulich and Violet Patterson for this honor. However, I’m not going to give you three chapters, I’m going to give you the first line out of three separate novels, all currently in progress. All which I hope to have completed and in your hands by the end of next year.
First line to the current untitled vampire novel:
Alexandria Maxell enjoyed a summer cookout as much as the next person, but she preferred her meat from animals, not people.
First line to a young adult novel with the tentative title “Sir Christian”:
Had it been a typical Friday for fourteen year old Christian Rite, he’d only have been in trouble two or three times.
And finally, from an urban fantasy novel with the tentative title “Reckonings”:
Nikki’s father used to tell her cemeteries were the safest place to be, and she believed him, until she learned the dead could come back.
