Today's Blogfest Prompt requires that we post the first paragraph of our novel or a work in progress. You've already seen some of the prologue to Fall, the sequal to Fade, so I decided to post the first paragraph of chapter one for you instead of paragraph numero uno of the prologue.
Fall picks up where Fade left off, with our wayward T.A. and his stubborn soul-mate trying to adjust to the things that happened to them in Fade. They know what is at stake for them now, and both take risks that, perhaps, they shouldn't. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, and I have a feeling these two are going to become intimately familiar with that concept as Fall progresses. But that's a discussion for another time. On to the excerpt!
I jerked awake, a choked gasp echoing in the early morning light filtering into the room around me. A flurry of thought bounced around inside my skull, causing my heart to race. Fear, anger, and determination twisted through me like smoke before dissipating as quickly as the feelings formed. They were not my emotions, though, and not my thoughts.
See you Wednesday!
