It Was a Dark and Stormy Blogfest Contest!

Brenda Blake is holding a first line contest where writers post the first lines of their manuscripts in their blogs. People critique them. Once the critiquing is done, we post the first lines back on her blog on February 9th at the following link:  Here's my first line. Tell me what you guys think!

Name: Amy Machelle
Title: Saving Elizabeth
Genre: YA Paranormal Romace

"Don't do it, Abby!"

The prize is a critique on part of a manuscript and query letter with agent, Weronika Janczuk. Pretty cool, right?

Your thoughts? Please post them in a comment below. Also, if you are a participant in the contest as well, please leave a link to your blog in the comment so I can give your first line some feedback. Thanks. :)


  1. What a great start - it gives a sense of danger and immediately conjures up images of an interesting MC.

  2. Thanks for the comment Sharon. :) Loved yours too. You know I'm such a big fan of "Mishca."

  3. I think it grabs your attention and leaves you wanting to read more! Bravo!
