First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros

Thursday, May 5th 2016

Hello my blog readers it’s a wonderful Tuesday which means it’s First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros hosted by Bibliophile By The Sea. What am I going to share with you today? I’m going to share with you my love for  the 1920s and 1930s, especially with Libba Bray writing The Diviners.


Evie O’Neal  is my favorite character, she’s  sassy, smart diviner whose stole my heart as well as all the attention of all those who have read her. The dialogue in The Diviners is so catchy that you’ll find yourself using the same slang words of the character.

What is The Diviner about?

Evie O’Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City—and she is pos-i-tute-ly ecstatic. It’s 1926, and New York filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.
Evie worries he’ll discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.
As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfold in the city that never sleeps. A young man named Memphis is caught between two worlds. A chorus girl named Theta is running from her past. A student named Jericho hides a shocking secret. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened.

Here is the first page of one my favorite historical fantasy novels.
I’m sure I mentioned this book before but I’ll mention it again and again because it’s one of my favorite series to read!

Happy Reading Everyone,

About Libba Bray

Libba Bray is the author of the acclaimed A Great and Terrible Beauty, Rebel Angels, and The Sweet Far Thing. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.

What is it about writing an author bio that gives me that deer-in-headlights feeling? It’s not exactly like I’m going to say “I was born in Alabama…” and somebody’s going to jump up and snarl, “Oh yeah? Prove it!” At least I hope not.

I think what gets me feeling itchy is all that emphasis on the facts of a life, while all the juicy, relevant, human oddity stuff gets left on the cutting room floor. I could tell you the facts-I lived in Texas for most of my life; I live in New York City with my husband and five-year-old son now; I have freckles and a lopsided smile; I’m allergic to penicillin
