In response to Victor Villaseñor’s inspirational visit to our writing group, I’m holding a contest which will be annual starting on Tax Filing Day, April 15. Send your first sentence from an historical mystery, suspense, or thriller. Go here and enter the through the form http://zaraaltair.com/Home_Page.html The first prize will be $100 to the most engaging and memorable first sentence.
Your sentence should engage the reader immediately and draw us into the story. Also, you will be setting the tone for the story. More than likely you will introduce us to your main character but this is not required.
There will be three judges, so it is not just me who will be evaluating you sentence.
Cut-off for submissions is midnight May 15.
