Six Sentence Sunday

These are the first six sentences from my first novel A New Leaf.  A New Leaf was the 2003 winner of the Timeless Love contest.  If you'd like to read the prologue scroll to yesterday's post.  A New Leaf is available at http://www.oaktreebooks.com/Shop%20OTP.htm


Kyle Alexander took a deep, deep, breath and exhaled loudly.  For the first time in five long years he was free.  Even the air was better outside Tanglewood Prison.

Beside him in the Lexus, his lawyer, Tommy Price, smiled in sympathy.  “Much better out here, isn’t it?”

“Yeah.”

Intriguing six, so confounds what we're led to expect from the prologue.

I have to wonder why he was in prison. Nice six!

Great opening,Elaine! Opens up all kinds of questions; why was he in prison? and what's he going to do now that he's out?

Intriguing. Why was he in prison? Very nice six, and a great hook to keep us reading.

Very interesting. Not fair, making me want to know why he was in prison, how long, etc. Inquiring minds want more. Good job.

Thanks to everyone for stopping by. For those of you who were curious, Kyle was in prison for armed robbery. He's a pretty dangerous guy, or at least he was.
