Hooked? – 6

I am really honored to be among two wonderful novelists! 🙂
Have a look at their books. You can check my review of Julia’s Violinist at http://www.amazon.com/Julias-Violinist-Anneli-Purchase-ebook/product-reviews/B00BI4TH3I/ref=cm_cr_dp_see_all_btm?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending

I’m looking forward to reading Patricia Sands Book of The Year Award Finalist novel. Bravo, Patricia.
And, of course, thank you, Anneli, for this wonderful series on opening lines. 🙂 I look forward to reading many more.

Anneli's Place

Here are three more books and their opening lines.

Assuming the book is in a genre that might interest you, do you want to continue reading after the first lines? The authors hope so. What do you think? Are you interested enough to turn the page? These books probably target women more than men, but we appreciate all opinions.

I’m guest posting today on AnnelisPlace , a blog she specifically uses to interview other bloggers.

You can catch my post here:


Anneli Purchase is an author and freelance copy-editor. Her articles on coastal life are published in Canadian magazines.  Storytelling has been a part of her life since she was a child. Writing the stories is just another phase of the process. Traveling, camping, fishing, mushroom picking and birdwatching are her preferred pastimes when she is not writing. Anneli has lived on Vancouver Island, Canada, for most of her life.

Anneli also has another blog . Have a look at her site for breath-taking photography.

Anneli is the author of three books which are available on Amazon and Smashwords. Her books are love stories and her love of coastal British Columbia.

Orions's Gift Front Cover only 9-19
While camping in the exotic landscape of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, Kevin and Sylvia, both on the run from abusive relationships, meet and fall in love. Two things stand in the way of their happiness. One—the secrets they keep from each other. Two—their abusers hunting them down. Will fear drive them apart or will passion and trust surmount the violence and hostility they have endured?

The lovely Julia has it all—a seemingly perfect life. The aftermath of WWII changes all that. Widowed and homeless, Julia and her two small children become refugees in their own land. As she tries to rebuild her life, Julia is drawn into a love triangle. New flames or old flames—both can burn and destroy.

The Wind Weeps (4)


Wind Weeps is a pure Canadian tale of love, betrayal, and triumph, told with gusto, humour, and bold insight.
