#FridayBookShare ~ The Pickpocket by @CelineJeanjean #Steampunk @ShelleyWilson72

#FridayBookShare ~ an excellent idea created by Shelley Wilson

With the weekend approaching it’s the perfect time to seek out new books to read, so Shelley created a Friday Book Share meme to help search for that ideal read.

Anyone can join in. Just answer the following F.R.I.D.A.Y. questions based on the book you’re either currently reading (or listening to, in my case) or have just finished reading. Use the hashtag #FridayBookShare and remember to tag Shelley (@ShelleyWilson72)

My book of the moment is a novella ~ The Pickpocket, the prequel to the The Bloodless Assassin. 

First line of the book.

Rory licked the mashed banana from her fingers.

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

Rory is a seven-year-old starveling, carving out a survival for herself down on the docks of Damsport. When Daria, an older girl and talented pickpocket, suggests they team up to con Damsians out of their purses, Rory accepts at once. 

But Rory’s friendship with Daria turns out to be much more than a partnership of convenience, transforming her into the confident urchin we met in The Bloodless Assassin, and teaching her the dangers of letting someone get too close. 

*The author recommends reading The Bloodless Assassin first*

Introduce the main character using only three words.

Rory ~ young street urchin

Delightful design (add the cover of the book.)

Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)

Anyone who likes great writing, a variety of well developed characters, steampunk and knowing there’s more to come.

Your favourite line/scene.

Rory paused, watching the light. When she was younger, she’d been convinced there was magic in that golden evening light. She knew better now, but she often stopped to look at it. It was one of the very few beautiful things in her world. As the light darkened, she turned and carried on up the stairs to the hole in the eaves.
