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 another first line from Through the Veil. TTV takes place in a world about 18 years into the future. The premise is that a natural occurrence (the Veil) separated the United States into two sides, the Western States (WS) and the Eastern States (ES) with a fog-like "Veil" in the WS that makes it impossible to cross from one side to the other.
But the heroine, Lori, has special powers that allow her to cross in an act of desperation to escape torture. In the ES, life is still pretty much like how you and I live right now, but in the WS, things have changed, evolved. This scene are Lori's first lines as she wakes up to some of the shocking changes that have happened in the WS.
