Here is his opening line:

The first time I paused the world, I managed to sleep through the whole thing.

How awesome is that? I know I want to keep reading.

Congratulations to Vincent! I liked his a lot, too.

Is there any way that we can find out the other two first lines that you were considering, since you had to bring in the "big guns" to choose among the top three contenders?

Thank you!

Sure! We were torn between Theresa Milstein, Livia, and Vincent. There were a lot of good ones!
