Hookers & Hangers Blogfest

The weather's been so great that I've definitely been slacking with this blog, and my writing.

After all, doesn't the sun and warmth make you want to go outside instead of hide away in front of a computer screen? ...or is that just 'cause I live on the west coast where there's all together too many grey skies throughout the year?

Well, to motivate me to edit my now completed first draft of 'Brake Fluid, Blood & Body Bags', I've joined the Hooks & Hangers Blogfest.

Want the rules?

We all know how important the first and last lines are in every chapter. This blogfest will hopefully get your HOOKERS and HANGERS polished making it impossible for readers to put down your book and leaving them begging for more!

On July 16th, post the first sentence from each chapter.

On July 18th, post the last sentence from each chapter.

Post as many as you like!

We will be judging everyone’s first three HOOKERS and first three HANGERS. We’ll each pick two winners (MOST ENTICING HOOKER and MOST IMPOSSIBLE HANGER) making a total of ten winners! Winners will receive a 10 page (double spaced) critique and a Friday Spotlight on FFF!

Sounds fun, right? To add your blog to the hop, just put your info in the linky below and have the hookers and hangers ready to view on the 16th and 18th of next month. Remember you can do as few or as many as you'd like, so even if your work isn't complete, feel free to enter it!


  1. I've been considering doing this blogfest. This could be just the incentive I need to hunker down and get some serious progress made on my revisions for MINGLED. Thanks for the reminder about this blogfest.

    1. Thank prerna, she posted about it, which lead me to it in the first place :)

  2. First of all - it's this month, secndly how can one do as many as we like since each chapter has only one first and one last line, unless you mean as many chapters as we like? And just so you know while it may be great in BC we're boiling here and our annual bbq is tomorrow.... but I'm cool, litterally, I sat in the pool with the water up to my neck ... lovely

    1. Yes, as many chapters as you want, but I think you for sure have to do the first three, 'cause that's what's voted on

  3. Alas, that only works for people who do chapters. The rest of us will wonder why you have chapters at all ...

    In seriousness, the whys and wherefores of chapters in adult fiction is probably an interesting debate to have.

    1. You should enter the hooks/hangers of 'Boy & Fox'!!!


Type me out a line of Shakespeare or a line of nonsense. Dumb-blonde-jokes & Irish jokes will make me laugh myself silly :)
