Share your teasers in the comments or give a link to your blog if you're running a Teaser Tuesday.


  1. A fantastic book! I'm reading Tears of the Broken by A.M. Hudson. Here is the excerpt:

    "Dad' house has that fairy-tale look to it, too-especially with the daisy -filled garden bed on the side of the house that faces the school. It's not so much the daisies that bother me, but the Seven Dwarves and the small garden statue of Snow White is nauseating proof of Vicki's deprived childhood."

  2. Wow! That is awesome. Words to keep in mind.

    Here's mine: I'm reading Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon.

    "She looked at me guiltily and jumped into the front seat. Before they pulled away she rolled down her window and stuck her open palm out of the car. On it was a big white moth that must have strayed inside. She smiled at me and gently blew the moth off her hand, then raised her finger to her lips. Seconds later, the care took off, leaving dust and spinning stones in its wake."
