First Lines: Sarah Daltry

Today I was lucky to bring back another of my writing buddies to join in!

Sarah Daltry has written a variety of books. Her most recent release is Lily of the Valley, a companion novel to her new adult erotic release Forget Me Not. In December, Escape Publishing will be release the first of her Eden's Fall series, titled Bitter Fruits.

Sarah's favorite first line comes from Graham Greene's The End of the Affair.
"A story has no beginning or end; arbitrarily one chooses that moment of experience from which to look back or from which to look ahead."

Sarah's love of this line comes from its depth:
It isn’t just an amazing and tragic love story. This line is simply fantastic. It addresses the idea of perception, the idea that each moment could be the moment that defines us. We always seem to think it’s one particular moment, but really, as Greene says, the choice is arbitrary.

Join Sarah as she prepares for her release date:

Want to know more about Jack's side of the story?
You met them in Forget Me Not. Now, hear Jack’s story. (Although this is from the same series, both novels work as standalone stories.)

Plagued by a dark past, Jack sees college as a way out. Desperate to escape the area where he grew up, the people who know his secrets, and his own family, he deals with his problems through alcohol and sex. 

When he first sees Lily, she’s the epitome of everything he hates. Yet something about her makes Jack rethink everything he knows and assumes about other people. Now, with the help of his best friend and lover, Jack has to decide if he wants to pursue something that he knows will only end badly.

Can Lily be one of the few people who can see Jack for who he really is – or will his darkness be too much for her to handle?
