First Lines

In the name of randomness, the first sentences of a few of my recent projects.

The opening of Butterfly's Poison, a fantasy intrigue novel set in a world with advancing technology:

Being shipwrecked, the thought rose to the surface of Miayde’s mind, had a dismaying impact on her dignity.

From The Swan Maiden:

The advantage to madness is that it gives the afflicted the potential to be invisible.

From Flow, my contemporary fantasy novel-in-progress:

On bad days, the world around Kit vibrated in sympathy, a stray shudder from the windows or knick-knacks taking a swan-dive off the cabinet.

And from Polestar:

When the star-heiress returned to the city of Gwynora, she was no longer a figure of purity, protected from the touch of any mortal substance.

The shipwreck one is priceless. Priceless. The one with Kit is intriguing, like I'd like to see where it goes from there.
