First Line Friday!

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…”  —Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities (1859)

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” —Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice (1813)

"Mr and Mrs Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much." – J.K. Rolwing, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (1997)

Welcome to
First Line Friday!

Here's how it works:
We'll post the first lines from three books, some written by us, some by author friends.
Then you will all be asked to vote for your favorite, without knowing who wrote it or what book it comes from-- until Saturday!
On Saturday, the lines along with their book cover, blurb and author will be listed so you can check them out! 
ALL voters, no matter who you choose or which line wins, will be entered into a drawing for a $10 Amazon gift certificate.
Easy and fun, for all of us!  We hope you'll play along!

And now, here's First Line Friday!

1.  Bits of gold dust clung to her skin.

2. "Will Work for Sex."

3.  Kelsey looked up from the counter as the bell over the front door chimed.

Okay... make your choice!  List your favorite by number or by quoting the line in the comments!  All votes up until midnight will be counted.  And don't forget to check back tomorrow to see who wrote which line and how to check out the rest of the books!

Bits of gold dust clung to her skin. Now that hints at all kinds of interesting things to come!

Love the first two, but voting for three as that leaves it all wide open, imagining all sorts of things...What is Kelsev like and who is coming in that door...?

#2 made me laugh, which is always good in an opening line, but like Mary Jo, I'm voting for #3--gotta know who that bell is announcing!
