"My fingers reach through the screen and comb through the garbage until they find the home of the shrieking chorus, hungry girls singing endless anthems while our throats bleed and rust and fill up with loneliness. I could scroll through these songs for the rest of my life and never find the beginning."
Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson


And now, for my Tuesday Teaser...For those of you who don't know, I do my Tuesday Teaser's differently (and yes, I add this disclaimer every time). Each week, I feature a teensy snippet 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 finished MS, Fire and Snow.

The teaser is down, my friends! Check back next week for more :)


As a quick closing note...my lovely affiliate, Lea from YA Book Queen, is hosting an amazing contest! Click here for your chance to win a signed ARC of SHADE by Jeri Smith-Ready...but hurry...this contest ends Thursday at midnight!
