Here is the the first paragraph:

Run Like Hell:Chapter 1 by Matthew Gullstrand

It all started during a full moon in October. Hurricane Sandy hit my hometown like one, truly unstoppable force of nature. I was twenty years old and I lived in the small town of Union Beach, New Jersey— considered just another district, a lower one perhaps, of the bordering town, Keyport, right on the water across from New York City. This town was so small that most people who’d lived in Jersey most of their lives hadn’t even heard of it before this tragedy— you’d not have even realized it existed driving down Highway 36 if you ignored the signs as you passed. Just about everyone you’d talked to figured it really was Keyport, considering the only actual contents of the town were the homes, a little barber shop run by a little old man and a liquor store. You could make the case that we also had a McDonald’s, Italian Ice place, Bank of America, Hess station and a few other assorted businesses, but that was by circumstance of them having been built on our side of the highway. Past that, there’d not really been any other reason for passers-by to enter any further. That changed after Sandy.

Please leave feedback either on Matthews site or on the Happy Women Work from Home site above!! I personally can not wait for the second chapter--heck I want the book finished so I can read it all--Matthew is a very good writer!!

That is a great idea to be able to glimpse at a chapter, it gives the reader a chance to see if they like it or not.

i'm not really a book reader or a novel reader. I applaud those people who loves books because that is something that i'm lacking about. Anyway this book seemed to be a good read

Michele,
I was sucked into reading thinking you're sharing something from your personal life!
That is so cool the language the author uses to describe things!
It's a winner!

I love it when authors realease the first chapter(s). It gives you a sense on what the book is truly about (because sometimes the synopsis is not enough to get the feel of a book).
