July 16 & 18 Bloghop: HOOKERS


Get your mind out of the gutter! :D

We all know we love our hookers and hangers (Hookers being the first sentence of a chapter; hangers being the last). The wonderful bloggers of Falling for Fiction are hosting this epic bloghop that reveals the hookers of our chapters on the sixteenth and our hangers on the eighteenth. The bloggers judge your first three for ten winners of a Friday Spotlight and a ten-page critique. (:

For my hookers, I'm using a WIP called LINKED, which is a YA Paranormal. I wanted to stay under ten...but I love them all so much! So...I used fourteen. Don't hurt me. :3

CHAPTER 1: In a world where the government is as innocent as an eleven-year-old kid, what’s a teen to do?

CHAPTER 2: The repetitive slamming on the door wakes me up.

CHAPTER 3: It hurts; I don’t even know what hurts, but I’m in pain.

CHAPTER 4: It’s too suspicious to “wake up” ten minutes after the terrorists leave the room.

CHAPTER 5: Time to face the day.

CHAPTER 6: School ends and I meet Lens at his car.

CHAPTER 7: Lens doesn’t get home until late in the evening.

CHAPTER 8: There are only a few things left in my car trunk that I need to move into Melinda’s apartment, including the bag of glass valuables in the front seat.

CHAPTER 9: Zade meets me next to my locker.

CHAPTER 10: Once I’m away from him, all of my anger and resentment flushes back with a vengeance.

CHAPTER 11: “You’re in danger!” I cry, startling Christian as I slam out onto the roof.

CHAPTER 12: I enter the doors to the school just as someone else walks out.

CHAPTER 13: At home Melinda seems a bit baffled at my expression.

CHAPTER 14: “You played a good game, Marissa; but it’s checkmate.”

Bleh, some of these are kind of lame... But they could be worse (:

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Hooking Monday! :D

    1. My starter sentence was actually something different, but I got bored with it a few months ago and mixed up something different. Just in time for this blogfest, it seems! (; Thank you!

  14. Sorry I'm so late getting over here to read your hooks and hangs, but I have been swamped! I'm part of two blog hops and I'm hosting two book tours and of all weeks for my macbook to leave me for some repairs. Add to that my Internet has been hit and miss and throw in some personal family matters and I'd say it's been a week:(

    But, my favorite hooks are #3 and #14:) This books sounds superb!

    @Ink: *Blanchs* Whoa. Don't worry about that, then! That's a crazy to-do list, and I'm sorry for whatever family matters transpired. ): Thank you so much for dropping by so much! <3

    @Trisha: Eep! Thank you for your kind words. <3
