Today I'm taking part in Book Beginning Fridays over at Rose City Reader, and The Friday 56 at Freda's Voice.
Here's my Book Beginning:
"I am ninety. Or ninety-three. One or the other."
from Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. I loved that first paragraph. I think when you get that old, it doesn't really matter, does it?
Here's my excerpt from page 56 from the same book:
"He grabs me by the scruff and smashes my face into the door frame. With his other hand, he yanks open the sliding door and chucks me inside. I fall forward, my hands outstretched. I come to a stop against a brass rail and straighten up, looking back at Earl in shock. Then i see the rest of them."
Yikes, trouble ahead!
Enjoy your day and your latest book!
