Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays: The Man Who Did Too Much, by Camille LaGuire

George Starling quit his job as a secret agent to take care of a traumatized woman he rescued. He has brought her home to her small Michigan town, where she can’t seem to get better, and he can’t seem to shake loose of his need to take care of her. When an old friend asks […]

Teaser Tuesdays: Midnight Rain, by Holly Lisle (again)

The Little One is finishing up Midnight Rain (or at least that’s the plan), this week at camp. It’s been some time since I read it, but I remember it as incredibly suspenseful and creepy, like the early X-Files episodes (which is a different post). (And I mean “creepy” in a good way.) Phoebe Rain’s […]

Portraits, by Lawrence Strauss

Portraits is a new indie album by artist and musician, and my friend, Lawrence Strauss, and his kick-butt folk guitar. His tunes are folksy, story-oriented, with a healthy dash of Messianic Jewish spirituality thrown in. And having seen him perform, personally, I was impressed with the artistic quality of these tracks. You can stream the […]

Teaser Tuesdays: Taken, by Charlotte Abel

I’m still collecting and writing up my thoughts on Enchantment, Charlotte Abel’s first novel. However, I’ve already peeked into the sequel, available as an ebook, Taken, a magical YA paranormal romance. What I’ve seen so far encourages me, as I immensely enjoyed its predecessor. So even though I’m not officially reading it, and even though […]

Teaser Tuesdays: I’ll Mature When I’m Dead (Dave Barry)

Yes, I really needed an infusion of funny. And not just funny, but Haha! funny. And Dave Barry always makes me laugh. So sue me. I don’t remember whither I got I’ll Mature When I’m Dead. Clearly some overstock source, as I wouldn’t have paid full price for it. Which has nothing to do with […]

Teaser Tuesdays: Laundry Day, a Short Story by Stacy Juba

Another short e-book, “Laundry Day,” by mystery author Stacy Juba. When Gregg accidentally discovers his neighbor’s lingerie collection drip-drying in her shower, he stares in fascination at a scene that looks like laundry day at the whorehouse. After his neighbor is found dead – strangled with her own fishnet stocking – the next victim might […]

Teaser Tuesdays: Minerva Wakes, by Holly Lisle

Last night, the Little One begged me to read with her. Since she’s become a teenager, it’s been a while. She highly recommended Minerva Wakes, by Holly Lisle, which she had read before but which she wanted to read again. (Our copy is falling apart, and I should probably find another to replace it.) I […]

Teaser Tuesdays: Abandon, a short story by Missy Frye

The Internet is a wonderful thing. With the proliferation of ebooks, authors can publish their shorter works economically. And they do. So it dawned on me that I should probably choose one of the many short stories I have read for one of these Tuesdays’ snippets. So I am, “Abandon”, a short story by Missy […]

Teaser Tuesdays: The Psychology of Hope

Reading back through some of the old posts on this blog, I see a man who saw wonderful possibilities for his future, and an undiminishable drive to pursue those possibilities; a man who saw the future as his salvation, not as his curse. What happened to that man? He’s still inside me, beat down by […]

Teaser Tuesdays: Enchantment (again)

You may recall, I read Enchantment this past summer. And I liked it so much that I decided to include it among my favorite indie romances. I’m collecting printed editions of these novels into a deluxe package, which I had hoped to make available for Valentine’s Day. (You know, because romance equals Valentine’s.) But I […]
