#1LineWed – p 155, 55, or 15

Today’s instructions for #1LineWed on Twitter, sponsored by RWA’s Kiss of Death chapter, are to post something from page 155, 55, or 15. I just posted one example from WAR: Intrusion, the second book in my new romantic thriller series WAR. One more will go up by the end of the day.

If you’re not on Twitter, here’s what I posted last week when the theme was QUESTIONS. These are also from WAR: Intrusion. Intrusion is still a work in progress, aka WIP, so there’s no guarantee these lines will stay in the book. 😉


Was MacKay being protective? Or simply removing her so he had a clearer shot at Kwesi?


He searched her face. “And no one was hurt?”
Did he really care? And why did she want the answer to be yes?

 

#1LineWed – QUESTIONS

Today’s theme for #1LineWed on Twitter, sponsored by RWA’s Kiss of Death chapter, is QUESTIONS. I just posted one example from WAR: Intrusion, the second book in my new romantic thriller series WAR. One more will go up by the end of the day.

If you’re not on Twitter, here’s what I posted last week when the theme was HOOKS from a scene or chapter ending. These are also from WAR: Intrusion. Intrusion is still a work in progress, aka WIP, so there’s no guarantee these lines will stay in the book. 😉


Let her think she still had control of the situation. She’d learn differently soon enough.


The driver didn’t trust her. MacKay didn’t trust her. That made them even.
Because she didn’t fully trust them, either.

Celebrate with ARe!

#1LineWed – HOOKS

Today’s theme for #1LineWed on Twitter, sponsored by RWA’s Kiss of Death chapter, is CHAPTER OR SCENE ENDING HOOKS. I just posted one example from WAR: Intrusion, the second book in my new romantic thriller series WAR. One more will go up by the end of the day.

If you’re not on Twitter, here’s what I posted last week when the theme was OPENING LINES from a scene or chapter. These are also from WAR: Intrusion. Intrusion is still a work in progress, aka WIP, so there’s no guarantee these lines will stay in the book. 😉


“Update, Commander.” Dev’s voice cut across Lachlan’s thoughts. “We decided to do a little Indiana Jones-ing.” Ch31 opener.


Helen strode toward the clinic, acutely aware of the coiled danger of the man beside her. Ch2 opening line.

#1LineWed – OPENING LINES

Today’s theme for #1LineWed on Twitter, sponsored by RWA’s Kiss of Death chapter, is OPENING LINES from a scene or chapter. This one was difficult for me, since a lot of my scenes open with a line referencing the action at the end of the previous scene. So these lines wouldn’t make as much of an impact out of context. However, I did manage to pull a couple of lines from WAR: Intrusion, the second book in my new romantic thriller series WAR. I just posted one example and another example will go up later in the day.

If you’re not on Twitter, here’s what I posted last week when the theme was PRACTICAL JOKES AND GENERAL MISCHIEF. This was another difficult theme for me, because my characters are more interested in chasing down the bad guys than pulling jokes on one another. I only managed to come up with one line for this one, which is also from WAR: Intrusion. In this scene, one of Lachlan’s teammates explains how he managed to steal a truck from the rebels by preying on their fear of ghosts.

Intrusion is still a work in progress, aka WIP, so there’s no guarantee this line will stay in the book. 😉


“I hid beneath the steering column. Because the rebels couldn’t see me, they panicked, thinking a ghost was driving the truck.”

#1LineWed – PRACTICAL JOKES AND GENERAL MISCHIEF

In honor of April Fool’s Day, today’s theme for #1LineWed on Twitter, sponsored by RWA’s Kiss of Death chapter, is PRACTICAL JOKES AND GENERAL MISCHIEF. This one was really hard for me, since my characters are mainly focused on taking down the bad guys, not on joking around. However, I just posted one example from WAR: Intrusion, the second book in my new romantic thriller series WAR.

If you’re not on Twitter, here’s what I posted last week when the theme was HUMOR. These are also from WAR: Intrusion. Intrusion is still a work in progress, aka WIP, so there’s no guarantee these lines will stay in the book. 😉


“Sorry. It was a couple years ago. All I remember is that funky tree.”
“It’s Africa,” Lars muttered. “All the trees look funky.”


“That’s right,” he added in an aside to the hen. “I’m talking about eating you and your friend for dinner. How do you like that?”


“If I shoot you because you forget the signal, I’m going to patch you up without pain meds.” Lachlan laughed. “Fair enough.”
