Tuesday Teaser/Teaser Tuesday #37

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Here are the rules: Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page, and BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!





I had a flash of my mom's face as she folded and smoothed the thick, fluffy towels, scented with lavender. She always folded and put away the towels herself for some reason, instead of letting Carmen do it.
Dark Song by Gail Giles







And now, for my Tuesday Teaser...For those of you who don't know, I do my Tuesday Teasers differently (and yes, I add this disclaimer every time). Each week, I feature two sentences (or more) of something I've written, leave it up all day, then remove it around 11 PM. You're welcome to comment on it, love it, hate it, or simply read it at your leisure...if you'd like, of course. This week's teaser is from my current WIP, RACE.







The Tuesday Teaser is down! Check back next week for more :)

  1. Dear Melissa, please publish RACE so I can read it. Thanks;) These teasers are killing me, I LOVE them:) And whatever the reason, that is a brutal lesson she had to learn.

  2. I like both teasers! Great images! I have two this week. My YA teaser comes from Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers and my adult teaser comes from Side Jobs by Jim Butcher. Happy reading!

  9. I don't usually read Teaser Tuesday, but I love your spin on it! Just those three sentences make me want to read your book. I'm so curious now!

  10. Hmm, sounds like my Mom. Love that cover...so striking! AS for your tease...while I'm certainly curious as to why they did that to her in the first place, the other one stole the show this week. Great choices though...really good. Happy reading!

  11. Awesome teasers! I’m curious as to what justified such a harsh punishment.

  12. As usual, prefer your own teaser (yikes!). :)

  13. I look forward to your teasers every week. I always seem to like your teaser more than whatever book you're reading too, so I really hope that one day I'll be able to read RACE in its entirety.

  14. Ummm....I don't know if that is a teaser or a warning. I hope that you are enjoying your book. Wanna see what my Teaser for Tuesday is?

  15. Here is my teaser from Out of Touch by Brandon Tietz (Page vii):

    I used to be the kind of guy that would have no problem reading Playboy or Hustler on an airplane, but that me in "the before," and nearly everything has changed since that time in my life a little over a year ago.

    This is not a coming of age story.

    If that's what you're wanting then I suggest you put this down and read something else: something with a happy ending. Like Penthouse.

    Or: the funny pages.

    This is me giving you your official warning.

    Because where this goes, you might not be ready for.

  16. Having your foot shoved into a pit of hot coals does not sound fun. It hurts just thinking about it! I think it's awesome that you're writing a book!

  18. Here is my teaser and be prepared, it's dangerously explosive! I would love to review your book Melissa!

  26. Oh my that is one hell of a lesson! I am sure wondering why a father would be helping anyway force a kid into submission in that way. What a teaser!
