First Line Friday is a weekly feature that I now love to take part in.

It is hosted by Wandering Words.

What if, instead of judging a book by its cover or by its author, we judged the book by its opening lines?

Here is how it works:

– Pick a book off your shelf and open to the first page.

– Copy the first few lines without giving the book away.

– Reveal the book

Here we go!


The StarQuake entered the Moons’ orbit with relative ease, despite the battle raging on the surface. The ships’ engineer, Vittoria Rixon, adjusted the goggles on her forehead, while she monitored the vitals of three other members of The Coyotes on the ground.

“Y’all ok down there?” She asked, into the comms unit.

“… can’t talk… heavy fire… ” came the reply. She thought it was Tanner, but the static made it hard to be sure.

The Omega Drive by Nik Whittaker

I am super excited to start this book from a fellow indie author!
