The Work in Progress (WIP) Blog Tour

I was honored when my friend, fellow suspense author, Maria Savva, tagged me in the “Work in Progress” blog tour.  Maria’s work crosses psychological suspense, crime fiction, family sagas, novels and short stories (whew!).  Check out her WIP blog post here.     

So, here are the rules: Provide the link back to the post by the person who nominated you (see above). Write a little about and give the first sentences of the first three chapters of your current WIP, then nominate four other writers to do the same.

Here goes:
Title:
“Every Breath You Take”
For anyone who ever listened to the lyrics of this classic 80’s pop song and thought it was a love song… take another listen.  While the song wasn’t the inspiration for the story, once I really listened to the lyrics, I knew this would be the title of my book.

I’ve been working on this novel for so long, it turned into a labor of love (more labor than love most of that time), but after all these years, it is on the verge of becoming a real live book, which I’m quite excited about.

While “Every Breath You Take” is pure psychological suspense, there are a few other themes that crept in during the writing process that took me by surprise.  While I didn’t plan them, my beta readers have responded entusiastically to them and I think they really rounded out the overall story.  Sometimes, flying by the seat of your pants when writing can be a good thing.

Chapter One:
“She misses sunlight.”

Chapter Two:
“Do I know you?”

Chapter Three:
“Natalie rolled her neck around as she fumbled to get the key in the lock of her door.”

I'm nominating the following four awesome writers to reveal their WIPs :)
