That all-important opening line

Denise Baer over at Baer Books Press had a brilliant idea for a blog post. Why not get a bunch of authors to share their first lines ... and then say why it’s a good opening line!

She collected a total of 21 opening lines and some of them are real corkers. I particularly liked #1 and #15 (and my own, of course :) )

You can read them all here. See what you think.

I love comments. Please feel free to join in the discussion.

I also try to respond to comments. I usually do so during the early evening (Pacific time) which may be many hours away from now!

So if you leave a comment and return some time later and I haven't responded yet, please don't think I'm ignoring you. I'm not. Honest.
