Six Sentence Sunday – 11/4/12

Welcome to #SixSunday!

Today’s Six Sunday I”m leaving STEAM ME UP, RAWLEY to focus on my upcoming release, BEER AND GROPING IN LAS VEGAS due out December 19. Here’s the cover and the first 6 lines:

Mirjam rubbed the tiredness from her eyes, but the caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland still occupied the Rivenbark Hotel & Casino elevator with her. She blinked and squinted. Yep, and life-size. Complete with hookah.

Plastic squeaked against glass as the caterpillar shifted to make more room. It made eye contact.

  2. I’ve had some interesting elevator rides in my life, but never quite this interesting. It’s too bad, because it just so happens, I have a massive crush on Alan Ripkin, and while I’d prefer him in one of his other roles, if Alice’s caterpillar was what I got, I guess I could learn to be happy with it.

    Great hook, Angela. I’m already looking forward to reading this in a few weeks.

  21. I quite frankly don’t know what I’d do if I met a hooka-smooking catapeller in the elevator. Fun six

  23. Can’t even articulate how flipping awesome these first lines are. And I love how much the first lines fall right in with the Hunter S. Thompson play on words in the title. I can totally imagine Raoul Duke saying this in FALILV.

      It may be silly, but I set up my Outlook calendar to check on Dec 19th for the release of your book. I liked what I and want to read more.

  24. OK, I want to know the whole rest of the story, I mean the whole rest–who-what-when-where-why-when.

    In the service of which, I’m headed back in time to read all of these and mend my wicked-wicked SSS absentee ways.
