Whoohoo! I've made it to Round Nine in author Karin Tabke's "First Line Contest"!!! We're now down to 25 entries, with five more entries to be culled by Karin's judges per week until we're down to 10 entries. Then, the final judge - an agent, will decide who the top Five winners are from the last ten.

One contestant has had an agent "lurker" request already, just based on her first 9 lines of her MS.

If you want to take a look at the entries, visit Karin's Blog at KARIN TABKE'S website. This week, I'm #9.

It certainly makes for interesting Mondays! I've got 3 more weeks to get the middle of my WIP re-jigged the way I want it to be. Whatever happens from this contest, I hope to start querying with it to agents on my A List.

Congrats on making it to another round! It's interesting to see who makes it another week, and who drops off, and then to wonder why. :?) BTW, I "tagged" you on my blog, if you're up for a good laugh.

Congratulations on making it to the next round!! I love your lines. Definitely edgy. I got booted this week. C'est la vie, oui? It was tons of fun while it lasted. Thanks for visiting my blog, Laurie. Kerry-the-stinker tagged me too.
