Friday Book Share was created by Shelley Wilson. Anyone can have a go – all you need to do is answer the following questions based on a book you are currently reading/finished reading this week and use the hashtag #FridayBookShare. The rules are as follow:
First line of the book.
Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.
Introduce the main character using only three words.
Delightful design (add the cover image of the book).
Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)
Your favorite line/scene.
I just finished Curses by Calvin Dean – the full review will be posted here on 11/14.
First line: Ghosts live in my house.
Recruit fans by adding book blurb: Martin Gallagher buys an old house in the country. While pursuing Hannah, a widow from the neighborhood, he encounters a sexy but psychotic ghost named Agnes. To make matters worse, Agnes is dead set on derailing his blossoming relationship. Meanwhile, an eccentric medium offers to help Martin exorcise his home, but this means resisting the temptress, encountering the bizarre, and braving the unknown. Can Martin overcome his desires and fears long enough to lift the curse? Curses is three connected stories that elicit laughter, warmth, even tears.
Introduce the main character: Martin is incredibly patient, well-meaning, and creative.
Audience appeal: Anyone who enjoys a supernatural tale – with humor.
Your favorite line/scene: This scene occurs in the wee morning hours – and Martin lives alone.
I pushed back the covers, sat up in bed, and swung my feet to the floor, but as I stood, a most horrifying scream penetrated the darkness.
“You animal!” a woman’s voice shrieked. “How could you…you…you beast!” Something crashed to the floor. “I’ll make you pay if it’s the last thing I ever do!”
Though muffled, I’m quite certain I heard these words through the walls. A struggle ensued followed by a slamming door and footsteps racing down the hall in my direction. I huddled beside a chest of drawers to hide.
