Work-In-Progress Blog Challenge

 

 

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.

Author Bianca Sloane

Bianca’s second novel, ‘Live and Let Die,’ was chosen as ‘Thriller of the Month’ (May 2013) by e-thriller.com

 

When Bianca Sloane is not writing, she’s watching Bravo TV, Investigation Discovery, reading or cooking. You can find out more about this talented author on her website and blog.

 

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)

Chapter 1

Conflict

The War in Heaven raged on around Lilith, the cacophony of screams, howls, and wails threatening to make her mad.

Lilith’s Fate

Chapter 28

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.

Chapter 29

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.
