Today’s First Chapter, First Paragraph is from The Alice Network by Karen Quinn:
May, 1947 Southampton
The first person I met in England was a hallucination. I brought her with me, onboard the serene ocean liner that had carried my numb, grief-haunted self from New York to Southampton.
I’m hosting this Tuesday’s Tantalizing Teasers which is easy to participate in. It may not appear every week but when it does, it will always be on Tuesday. To participate, show the title, author, and cover, and choose a random (or not) quote to share with other readers (two or three sentences), and leave a comment with the link to your own tantalizing teaser for the day. Here’s my quote from the above book:
The streetlamps sent a blurry light through the curtains, half-illuminating the dark hallway. I could see a tall gaunt figure, a straggle of hair, the fiery end of a lit cigarette. The gleam of light off a pistol barrel, pointing straight at me. (p.14)
