If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Hookers/hangers blogfest-- hanger entry

Today is the first part to the Hookers and Hangers Blogfest hosted by Falling for Fiction.
My 'hookers' to my first three chapters...
The rules:
"Here's the deets:
Hookers & Hangers Blogfest July 16th & July 18th


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.


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!
"

Hookers from my novel -The Jade Coterie-
 
Ch. 1
 Ebony Graves slipped out of her bedroom window.
Ch. 2
 Unfamiliar eyes settled on Ebony.  
Ch. 3
 Rose guided Ebony into a large room and walked back down the hall without a word.
