"You know that's a crime I can be jailed for in this state? Being the wrong sex in the bathroom?"
"Humans have weird laws."
I was hooked by the humour on the back cover blurb as well: In hindsight, Kitty realized she probably should have panicked and run screaming the way everyone around her was doing. Instead she got mad, searched her purse for a weapon, and, armed with a Mont Blanc pen, sprinted into action to take down the alien.
I've cheated by giving you an extra teaser but I had to share that part of the blurb with you - it was what made me buy the book.
Teaser 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 "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 and author too so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.
A Cup of Joe: Coffee House Flash Fiction Anthology. As writers, I'm sure we all love each and every one of our stories, but this one, written over a year ago, is a particular favourite of mine.
If someone had told me a year go I would be given a cure for truth, I would have said they were lying - funny how much your life can change.
Are there any books or stories you'd like to tease us with?
