First Line Friday.
The idea is we'll all share
(unedited) snippets from one of our
current Works In Progress or a previous release.
Sometimes it will be the first line.
Sometimes it will be a little excerpt.
It will depend on what's inspiring me Thursday night. ;)
Today, I'm sharing the first few lines of my upcoming release, Found At the Library.
In this book, each chapter starts out with an observation from one of the guys...either Tommy, the artist, or Mac, the author.
Last week I shared one of Mac's observations, so this week I'll share one of Tommy's. In the story, Tommy is in crisis mode and a lot of that comes through with his observations...
^^^The first lines from Chapter 3 of the book.^^^
It's releasing October 23rd and here are the preorder links...
Found at the Library Story Description:
His entire life, Tommy Garrett has dealt with self-doubts. He thought he’d conquered the majority of them until a chance meeting with an author brought his illiteracy to the forefront...again. Growing up with un-diagnosed dyslexia has left Tommy barely able to read, but books are his Nirvana. Now he spends his life creating art dedicated to the love of those “untouchable” items.
Robert McIntyre, Mac, is a best-selling, highly celebrated author. But his point of view has become a little bit too narrow...until Tommy opens his eyes. That chance meeting has changed everything about his world. He has no idea how to find the beautiful man he met, and offended, at the library book sale. But when he does, Tommy’s life is in crisis-mode. It’s the holidays and Mac can’t just standby when Tommy needs help, whether Tommy wants it or not.
Two artistic men. One shared passion for books.
Life is hard, and sometimes when conflict arises you have to write your own plot twist to pull yourself out of the fray.
After you check mine out,
go see what Kelly is up to...
