Love it! You can't go wrong. :P
Sounds like a Facebook meme. And depending on my mood, I could be rolling in laughter. I think it does work for Being Human.
It works pretty well with your books. Not so well with Piper Morgan!
That is fun! It would certainly work with mine.
I've seen books where it's either much better or very funny. I think your first lines are better on their own :)
Pretty fun! Definitely works well with yours. I'll have to give it a shot.
Hey I want to try that!
Ten Thousand Days: Isaac was awakened from his nightmare by the sound of the cat scratching at the door, and then the murders began.
Hell Comes to Hogtown: Millicent Duquette walked through her front door, locked it behind it, and tossed her keys in the dish on the small table in the front hall, and then the murders began.
Werebear vs Landopus I: Four warriors dismounted on a hill overlooking the Lower Barony of Amorous Felines on the outer reaches of the Kingdom of Dyzkovenia, and then the murders began.
Werebear vs Landopus II: And so after the death of the Lady Claire de Kerr the Werebear, the Lower Barony of Amorous Felines fell into chaos and monsters ran rampant through the realm, like a dump dwarf through a buffet or an elf through bridesmaids at a wedding, and then the murders began.
Hmm. Two things:
1 - My opening lines really run the gamut.
2 - In three of those four cases, it's actually true.
Hah! I love it. Snapshots was definitely my favorite, but it's true! Now I want to try this with my books. =)
I remember hearing about this trick before. Very fun to see how "and then the murders began" affected your own first lines!
I'll have to give this a test. Thanks, Patricia.
Being Human's is pretty great, but I really like Influence Of Love's. Fun meme-type thing. :)
I feel like mine's a little too on the nose..."Darian didn't mind killing...and then the murders began."
