Faerie After micro-giveaway  

faerie after coverARCs of Faerie After have arrived. Yay!!!

I think I must be a grown-up writer now, because I’ve been letting them out of my sight for entire hours at a time, confident they won’t disappear when I’m not looking. But I’m still hugely excited. :-)

I don’t have enough copies to give one away myself (because my publisher targets destinations for most of them), but I can once again give each of you … your own personal sentence. :-)

Here’s how it works:

Comment with a page number from 1-235 and a line number from 1-26. I’ll respond with one sentence–your own personal sentence–from Faerie After that begins on or ends on or otherwise crosses that line.

If the page doesn’t have that line, I’ll roll over to the next page. I’ve excluded the last 30 pages for major spoilers, but of course there could be minor spoilers earlier, too.

(Wordpress users--and others--can also comment here.)

Ends Sunday, November 4, midnight mountain standard time.

Go!

Your handcrafted sentence is:

I saw small changes in them all as they spoke: a broken finger, once healed at a bad angle, now grown straight; a child's lost hearing restored; the town blacksmith, walking without a cane.

Since artemisgrey requested the exact same line here, I give you the other sentence that crosses that line:

There'll always be something to spook someone.

Put them together and you have a whole half-paragraph! :-)
