My "Hookers," aka first lines from some of my chapters, are from my recent manuscript, THE BEAUTY OF DESTRUCTION. For a little bit of background about my story, here's my one sentence pitch:
Mia, a fifteen year old amnesic dead girl gets stuck helping another lip-glossed and venomous teen prevent a vengeful school shooting, only to discover the real story behind her own murder.
Chapter 1: Any minute now, Valerie Wittier will wake up, and I’ll remind her of what she’s done.
Chapter 3: From the moment I opened my eyes, I knew exactly where I was and not to trust it.
Chapter 6: All I can see are images of their bodies lying there, looking like cast aside baby dolls.
Chapter 13: Rain falls in billowing sheets like a heavy curtain of tinsel.
Chapter 34: A triad of lines like a tiny bird foot creases the space between her brows.
Chapter 35: “He has a gun.” The breathless words came from her mouth, though she was sure they’d been someone else’s.
Chapter 36: My stomach is tight and twisted – a thick, knotted, nautical rope coiled inside me spreading through every inch of my torso.
