Your Best Cliffhanging Intros

“It’s one of those cool, crisp fall nights that make you feel like the air is ripe with possibility, like anything can happen.”

The beginning of Beautiful Lies sets the stage for action, mystery, and a story filled with twists and turns. In last week’s newsletter, we asked you to create an opening that promised lots of action to come, and you delivered in spades! Congrats to Tessa Graves, who’s entry “Now That I Think About It…” was our top pick. Here is Tessa’s sentence along with the  four other finalists! Well done!

She came on the night with no moon, and she was all the dark needed.
