I'm a day behind, but had to join in this one. Part 1 of the Hookers & Hangers Blogfest. For part 1 participants post first sentences from each chapter and for part 2 last sentences of each chapter. You can post as many as you want. Since I'm launching a new book this month, I guess you're going to read my hookers from Alligators Overhead.
1. Pete chewed on what was left of his right thumbnail, stared up at the round-faced clock above Aunt Lizzie's desk and watched it tick off his last minutes of freedom.
2. A giant ten-foot-tall Harriet Hadley held Pete up by the shirtfront and shook him until his eyes rolled like marbles in their sockets.
3. They moved as fast as the dark mist allowed--down the path and into the swamp just the way they'd done hundreds of times before.
Any of these HOOK you? Hope so. Here's some others having fun and trying to hook your interest.
