MY BOOK BEGINNING



A Fuller Brush salesman had the unfortunate task of trying to sell his wares to the women of Freesia Court during the fifth day of a March cold snap.

-- Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons by Lorna Landvik. That's a great opening sentence because it creates a sense of time, location, and trouble.
