Hookers & Hangers Blog Hop Part Deux


Today is Part 2 of the Hookers and Hangers Blog Hop hosted by Falling for Fiction.

I am making my s.l.o.w. way around the other entries. I'm technically on vacation right now (a.k.a. not at home), so I don't have a lot of time online. I'm determined to make my rounds, however, so thanks for bearing with me!

Hangers are definitely my favorite part of a story. I mean, don't you love it when you're reading a great book and you don't even realize you've started a new chapter because you're so engrossed in finding out what's going to happen next? Love that.

Here is a selection of my favorite hangers from my WiP, The Crazy Part. 



Hanger #1: "Do you believe people go somewhere when they die?" I ask Jackson.


Hanger #2: "Go!" Isaac yells.


Hanger #3: "They don't know for sure until they run some tests," Faith continues. "But whoever it is--" Her voice breaks off, "--was wearing Drew's clothes."


Hanger #4: "You can do it," Isaac says as I start toward the steps. "It's why you came."


Hanger #5: Maybe because this whole day Isaac's been operating outside his safe shell, and for the first time I'm convinced it's for me.


Hanger #6: I don't want him to see me at my second worst--feeding a bunch of bull to all America, because that's exactly what I'm about to do.


Hanger #7: I bolt upright, water flying off me in shards, gasping a breath as if it's my last, just as the doorknob turns.


That's it, folks!

P.S. I'm giving you more hangers than hooks because I like my hangers better ... Maybe that shows I need to work on those hooks!

  1. Number 7 is great. I love the word "shards". But there is a lot of movement and action coming off all of them. Nice stuff!

  3. Hey, you have a character named Faith?? She's super-cool and a spectacular friend and pretty much a hero, right??? I'm just getting that vibe... ;)
    Seriously, these are great hangers. And they've got me hooked, too!

  15. Heh, it IS funny to read another story with 'Jackson' in it... and I also have another story with a character named 'Faith'.

    hopefully this Jackson fares better than mine ;)
