I’m taking a cue from Joleene Naylor on this one.
#FirstLineFriday is the end-of-a-week posting of the first line (or two) of a published story, potential story, or a work in progress. It’s a great way to get feedback on your work… or to stalk other writers and see what they’re doing. Whichever 🙂 Leave a link to your blog in the comments or on Rami Ungar’s, who started this super nifty concept.
This comes from the first chapter of Crusade Across Worlds, the fourth book in the Arizal Wars Series, releasing this June.
“I can smell them.
Horrops have that odor—dirt mixed with something sour and stale. Like too much raw meat. Or death.”
If you don’t know what a Horrop is, you should catch up. You can get the first book for FREE on Smashwords here.
