Two Sentence Tuesday # 2

Tomorrow I promise to quote someone else, but here are two sentences from the first chapter of The Halloween Murderer:

“She [Rhapsody] turned down the High Street, staring into the ground to keep the rain off her face so she wouldn´t have noticed the hearse if it hadn´t passed her exactly when she was on the point of crossing the road. She saw it slow down outside a thatched bungalow near the George & Deacon on the corner.

She ought to feel pity for the poor deceased, but her first thought was ´bother, now they will all say that the Devil claimed another arrow!´”

(Eh, you didn´t notice that I cheated and gave you three, did you?)

Two-Sentence Tuesday is hosted by Women of Mystery.

Dorte - This is great.! I'm so glad you quoted from The Halloween Murderer as I'm all excited about that book. I can't wait to read the whole thing :-).

Sounds great. I wouldn't have told on you if you had shared two or three chapters with us. :)

Beth F sagde ...

Nice! I'm happy to have gotten a bonus sentence.

Clare2e sagde ...

I'm actually a sucker for this kind of theme-y mystery.

Felicity Grace Terry sagde ...

A wonderful taster, thanks for teasing us.

Margot: and this is one of the days when I need my readers´ enthusiasm. Right now I am progressing backwards. But life will be better tomorrow!

Mason & Beth: in fact, I am able to count to three, but what is the point of a teaser if there is not a bit of drama to it.

Clare: and I am really beginning to enjoy writing them.

Tracy: don´t mention it. I like teasing people!

Leah J. Utas sagde ...

Ooohhh, love it.

Kelly sagde ...

I'm with Tracy - a wonderful teaser! Have you sent off "The Cosy Knave" to any publishers yet? I'm ready for its US release!

Dorte H sagde ...

Leah: thank you, and nice to meet you. I´ll come and read your two sentences later this week (having a horrible work week).

Kelly: not yet, but I have begun sweating over that query. It scares me more than writing the actual book.
