1, 2, 3, VOTE!

I need your help to spread the word! Vote for Mistress Of The Stone for Best First Paragraph and Last Line at RT Reviews.

Sarah Wendell of Smart Bitches weighed in and lent her thoughts to all the excerpts. Huzzah! I managed to keep her interest!

Below is my excerpt. We were asked to turn in the first paragraph and last line of the novel.  

FIRST PARAGRAPH: 
LuĂ­sa Tavares had a list of sins the length of the Antilles, but there was no time to repent for them now. She spat out the tang in her throat then shimmied down the mainmast of the Coral, her tight leather britches and sharp cutlass a mockery to all that was decent in a woman. Time was running out for the captain of the Coral. And with it, his luck.

LAST LINE:  
Mayhap, his chance had come.

***

So what do you think? Will you vote for me? Will you help me spread the word? Tweet the link to all your followers. I need all the help I can get.

Note: If you noticed me absent this morning, it's because we had a huge thunderstorm roll in. Thick clouds are havoc on satellite connections. But we're back up for now.  What a day to lose my internet connection!

I need to go out for a little while but I'll be back this afternoon to visit with everyone and answer emails.
