Teaser Tuesday 4

23 February 2010

This is how it works:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) ‘teaser’ sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your ‘teaser’ from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

(Tuesday always seems to sneak up on me. I nearly forgot to do this one today…)

This one’s from The Right Hand of the Sun by Anita Mason:

Hernán had not been precise about what Velásquez was to do on this foray into the interior. He should, naturally, investigate any towns he came to, and he should note what crops were under cultivation. He must not disturb the local Indians more than was necessary. He must return in three days. (p. 132)

    Hampshireflyer,

    Teaser Tuesday– great idea! This is an author and book I’m not familiar with but sounds intriguing. And thanks for your comment on my blog last week about author presentations. I got so much excellent feedback on that issue. Yours about feeling cheated when the author read her first chapter was particularly insightful. It made perfect sense, too, yet how many authors read and read, when the audience would prefer them to talk and share.


  5. Hi Karen, and glad it was useful! Good luck when you do your own talk 🙂
