Teaser Thursday: Indie Author Trivia Teasers

May 26, 2016

Chess Board - TwitterI was disappointed no one took me up on my request for teasers from your books. So, since I didn’t get any do use this week, I’m going to do tiny little teasers from (mostly) indie books. Can you match all the teasers to the authors and the authors to the books? No cheating!

Teaser Lines

  1. “One-on-one, head-to-head confrontation had never gotten them anywhere. He clasped his dirt-stained hands in front of him and set his stubble-strewn jaw. His dad was tough, but horses weren’t his specialty. They were Keith’s.”
  2. “‘But why would anyone buy children?’ He broke off and sat up, feeling a prickling at the back of his neck, a stirring in the pit of his stomach as the dreadfulness, the horror, of what she had said sunk in.”
  3. “‘This is how they made the rift between us, those Earthers. Since the beginning, my kind and yours could join, soothing every ache. That was our way.”
  4. “He held her so tenderly, like she was some fragile thing as he carried her over to the nearest pew, where he slowly laid her down to rest. All of this happened without the slightest hint of effort.”
  5. “Even those of us who do not believe Miss Penn is given to any particular prophetic gift have been in a somewhat dark mood since we set our sights upon returning to New Orleans.”
  6. “Ms Ubersyentist side-stepped, exploring the contraption. She shrugged a couple of times, surveying the twisted metal, when Lachy moved to whisper in her ear.”
  7. “With these kinds of jobs, repulsiveness was the most important quality you needed in a good partner– the other requirements being religious fervor and an IQ of less than a hundred.”
  8. “‘Call me Cole. And I will call you Andi,’ he said it slowly on purpose, dragging each word out. Her cheeks reddened. He’d ticked her off even more. she didn’t speak, just turned away and headed down the wide hallway.”
