Hi, everyone! I was asked by author Bianca Sloane to participate in the ‘Work-In-Progress Blog Challenge,’ and I accepted. Bianca Sloane writes suspense novels about the dark side of love. I am currently reading her novel, ‘Sweet Little Lies’ and so far, I find it riveting.
For this challenge, I must post the first line from each of the first three chapters in my work-in-process (WIP). Then I must select four other writers to do the same.
I have several WIP, but I’ve chosen ‘The Fall of Lilith’ for this challenge. ‘The Fall of Lilith’ is a Dark Fantasy aimed at a young adult/adult audience. This novel is divided into two parts: BOOK I – Heaven, and BOOK II – Earth. Therefore, I will be posting the first line of the first three chapters of both parts. Now, this is indeed a challenge. Revealing a tiny fragment of one’s work is a scary thing for any writer to do, since the entire work might be judged on those few lines.
(BOOK I – Heaven)
The War in Heaven raged on around Lilith, the cacophony of screams, howls, and wails threatening to make her mad.
In The Beginning
Before He created the universe, God was present.
The angels in Heaven were as numerous as the stars, all with distinguishing characteristics and potentials.
(Book II – Earth)
Lilith fell to Earth, crashing through trees, feeling the collision with every branch she broke along the way.
Gadreel’s Brutal Encounters
Gadreel tumbled from Heaven, bawling all the while. As she fell, she trembled with fear and regret, but still she could not stop thinking about Samael.
The Angry Mountain
For many miles, over many long days and short nights, stopping only for rest, Lilith and Gadreel followed the penetrating, shrill sound through the grassland.
Now for the four writers I have challenged:
