Teaser Tuesday (02.09.10)

February 8, 2010

teasertuesdays31Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly event hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. It’s easy enough to play along, just follow the Teaser Tuesdays link for rules.

Today’s teaser comes from The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield.

For the time being, I wanted to stay like this, head leaning against the door, fingers on the handle, indifferent to whatever was beyond, and waiting for the tears to pass and my heart to calm itself.
I waited.
Then, beneath my fingers, the handle to the third room began to turn of its own accord.
(p. 133)

What are you teasing us with today?

      I can’t wait to read The Thirteenth Tale especially after reading your Teaser. I had the book in my hand yesterday. I have too many books going at the moment. It’s at the top of my list.

    Good stuff Alita. Here’s mine, opening chapter of The Legend of Wolfboy – published anonymously by author in contract dispute w/ previous publisher. It begins publishing as it’s written this week. Reviewers can contact the site for a review copy before it’s public.

    Dusk was deepening toward another dark summer night and the chilly mountain air felt like frigid fingers running down their spines.

    A near-full moon began to peak through the majestic mountain pines that dominate the western slope of the California Sierra Nevada mountain range, adding to what was already an eerie atmosphere.

    “It was seven years ago today,” Ryan growled, his voice breaking the silence on this starless night, June 13, 1995. “The car radio said severe thunderstorms were threatening to hit the Sierras, but the Jacksons were set on going on their annual family vacation to Shaver Creek.”
