Friday 56: Noise

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.


For anyone who missed my post promoting this book, please take a look: Noise: A Novel by Darin Bradley. He's a local author and I love supporting local authors, musicians, and artists. This town has a wonderful abundance of all for it's size. I've never been anywhere outside of a large city where I have my choice on ANY given night of the week which band I'd like to go see. It's a wonderful dilemma.

I thought I would have this read by now, by life intervened and I haven't read past page 18, so makes as much sense to me as it does to you.

"Target is in custody."
"Spook? Are those ours?"
"What fucking target?"
"Channel cue."

What an intriguing excerpt! And that cover is fascinating, too.

Here's my 56:

I'm staring at the pretty cover of Goddess of the hunt by Tessa Dare. This is my F56 entry this week.

And the feeling of meeting a published author -- I'm sure it's amazing. That never happened to me yet, but I've been to two workshops lately with published novelists: one was Leigh Michaels and the other is Maya Sloan.

I haven't read Noise but the blurb is so intriguing I checked BN for an eBook version for my Nook and read the free sample as I usually do before I buy them. Honestly I haven't read any SciFi stories, but reading the first chapter seems very interesting. And I agree with the tone -- it sounded a bit formal style to me in first POV, but I like the short sentences. "We got the jump." or "We knew enough."

Thank you for introducing this to me. I have a feeling I'm going to like this...really.

Whoa! Cool tease... and I like that it is a local author.

My Friday 56 is up now too... describing a nightgown.
