First Words: Risk & Rules

"Gazing out at the quiet lake,
I know the risk is worth it."
"I've been wondering...is there a normal way to become paranormal? Like, go to Google, type in "Make me magic," click on a website and wait for a list of rules to pop up?"

I am totally struggling to choose which to read this weekend.
They both have strong beginnings but I love the snarky tone of Moonstone.
Happy weekend darlings! Any lovely plans?

  1. Great sentence to start the book and grab the readers attention.
    I heard some good things about Firelight, hope you will enjoy it.

  22. I'm at the Lotus World Music Festival in Bloomington, Indiana. Just saw a band from the desert of Africa, and an Indian Bhangra band. Wow!!! It gives me inspiration to write, and gets me dancing. I recommend breaks from writing to enjoy music!!!
