Teaser Tuesdays (27 August)

27 August 2013

tteTeaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• 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 TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teasers:Perfect7

“Ivers struggled with the name, speaking slowly to pronounce it properly, “S-E-R-A-G-I-O-N, Master of the deep, keeper of the skies, ferryman to the abyss, eater of the flesh of those who call upon Baal, only to find their souls fall short.”

“Our thoughts were interrupted by a friendly voice, “Can I help you gentlemen?”

~ Page 28 The Perfect 7 by Inion N. Mathair

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!


About Ol' Big Jim

Ol' Big Jim, has been a storekeeper, an embalmer, a hospital orderly, a medical biller, and through it all, a teller of tall tales. Many of his stories, like his first book, New Yesterdays, are set in his hometown of Piedmont, Alabama. For seven years, he lived in the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, Amman, Jordan where he spends his time trying to visit each one of the thousands of Ammani coffee shops and scribbling in his ever-present notebook. These days, you can find him back stateside, still filling notebooks.

    “There were so many faceless enemies – from within the country and abroad – that no one was certain who we were fighting and why.”
    “Cities were no place to raise a family, or, more pointedly according to Jayne, start one.”

  3. What an honor it is to see our words on your blog, Jim. And, you picked one of our favorite excerpts! Thank you so much for your support. You’ve been a dear friend to us and we can’t stress enough how moved we are that you’d share our novel with your readers. Thanks again.
