FIRST LINES OF HUNTING MARIAH!

This could be the beginning, a way to satisfy his urges. His senses were tingling with the sight, smell, and feel of blood. The silky texture of it and its coppery smell and even the intoxicating taste of it. Just the smell alone could cause desire to rush through his body triggering a compelling urge to kill. He felt a thrill at the prospect of taking a life.

Here is a link to see the winners and finalists of AUTHORSDB FIRST LINES CONTEST! Congratulations to all the winners and finalists! Check out their books today!

I have been away and offline since June 6, 2018 and returned recently. We visited the beautiful Island of Madeira and Lisbon, Portugal.

I am still trying to catch up with all the emails and social media that I missed. Without my trusty iPad along I did not look at any emails or social media the whole week and a half. It was a lot easier than I imagined it would be. It was a freeing feeling not to be connected for a little while.

Please stop by again soon. I will be posting about my trip with photos of all beauty we saw there. It was an incredible place to visit and especially meaningful since my grandparents were born there.

Thank you for stopping in to read about the winners of Authorsdb First Lines Contest. Authorsdb is the perfect place to check out new books and authors. All my books are there too!

REMEMBER: READING GIVES YOU WINGS TO FLY! SOAR WITH JEMSBOOKS.COM ALL YEAR THROUGH! HAPPY READING!

Blessings & Hugs,

Janice
