First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros


Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where I share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book I am reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?

This week I'm featuring an intro from a book that I am looking forward to:


August 2013 - William Morrow - Harper Collins

"Gwen could not have been more explicit at our first session: I was to cease reading books by or about women who killed themselves.

An unhealthy obsession, that's what my therapist called it, and I was inclined to agree with Gwen;s diagnosis.  There was, after all, no other logical explanation for the string of events that brought me to her office.  Ghosts do not exist.  I resigned myself to the fact that what I'd seen and done was a consequence of a compromised mental state.

Like other writers before me, I had simply gone mad."

How does this one sound to you? I plan to start it soon.

  11. That was a very interesting opening paragraph. I'd keep reading. I didn't have an intro this week because I'm still reading "Inferno", but I do have a teaser.

  12. I really like that beginning. It sets up the reader with a lot of questions as an incentive to keep reading for answers. I also like the tone of the storyteller.
