Tuesday Intros and Teaser Tuesday


To take part in Tuesday Intros simply share the first paragraph of the first chapter of the book you are reading or are going to read. Tuesday Intros is hosted by Bibliophile By The Sea.

To take part in Teaser Tuesday turn to a random page in the book you are reading, and share two teaser sentences from that page, without sharing spoilers. Teaser Tuesday is hosted by A Daily Rhythm.



Here's mine:


Tuesday Intro


Captain Jake Phillips lay flat on his back, surrounded by a quiet electric hum. He parted his lips and attempted to take a breath. His body failed to respond to his brain's command.


Teaser Tuesday


Jake followed the man named Ross while two guards continued to silently encourage him along with their rifles. Leaving the forest gave him a sense of relief, and these people didn't seem half as crazy as the ones outside.


13%, Sixth Cycle by Darren Wearmouth & Carl Sinclair


This book counts towards my total for the New Author Challenge 2015 hosted by Literary Escapism.

Well...it's Friday, but I'll play anyway.

TUESDAY INTRO
The Boy who was running ran into the rain.

TEASER TUESDAY
The Gorgon ship lay still, its life liquid pouring from burned holes in the skin and steam rising up around it.

Olivia pulled free. Her face was drawn as tightly as a mask; her eyes wore the shine of near-madness and tears had run down to her chin.


The Border by Robert McCammon

BTW...you've been BLITZED!! :) Enjoy.
