Tuesday’s Tantalizing Tidbits & Teasers – May 30, 2017

Good morning and Happy Tuesday!!

Authors, share your books and feel free to chat about them, or chat about other authors’ books.  (Each week the location of the lines I request will change. You may share info from the same book each week, or you can choose a different one.)

Readers, enjoy the tidbits and such, feel free to comment…like…follow…buy, etc.

WARNING: Some content might be graphic and/or offensive to some

It’s simple to join in… Authors, choose any of your books (one book per author per week, please), and share the following in the comments:

  1. Title and genre
  2. From any page that ends with the digit five, such as 5, 15, 25, 35, etc. (any version, Word Doc, Print, Kindle, etc), from the 30th line, share five sentences. (You can choose to share sentences that come before or after, if part of the sentence is on the chosen line-see example below)
  3. Share a fun or interesting fact about the book, the characters, the setting, etc.
  4. List ONE buy link
  5. List your Twitter and FB Fan/Author pages so everyone can like/follow
  6. Optional – List the price of your book, especially if it’s on sale!

Example – For the below, if I were choosing the second line, I would use the entire sentence, the words before and after for this line:  ‘…a red torrent, draining my life as I screamed in…’

If I were using line 5, I could either use the ‘Where had that come from’ line or the ‘For such a’ line, and I would use an entire sentence.

Don’t worry that the line might not be all that engaging, or that it might not make much sense. This is all for fun and to share a glimpse of you and your stories. I’ll be sharing one of my books in the comments so you can see how it’s done. 😀

A new post with a new location goes up every Tuesday…have fun!

  1. I’ll bite. This is from my latest Gaslamp/Victorian romance novel, House of Dark Envy (available at Amazon in kindle and paperback http://hyperurl.co/ff17hh ).

    from page 75:
    His aunt’s pink lips twitched. “[Felix,] you’ve not developed an attachment to Lady Morville, have you?”

    “No!” He tossed the screwdriver down on the loveseat beside him, rose, and paced. Gray clouds filled the sky, dreary. Maybe he’d stay the night.

    His aunt plucked the tool up in ginger fingers and set it on the side table.
    “Really?” she asked.

    “Not a bit.” Felix gave her a sheepish, apologetic grin, set the screwdriver back in his toolbox. “Why would you think that?”

    “You work closely with her and now she gets you appointed to the Royal Academy,” she said. “Don’t wonder that I wonder.”

    (Felix is an electrical “wizard”/engineer in the late 1880s, during what was known as the “Current Wars” and Lady Morville is his patron. :))

  2. Hi, Alicia! This is from my latest release, on sale for 99 cents through June 7, 2017, The Bastard’s Iberian Bride, a Regency romance:

    From page 135:
    More stirring within him. The lass had depths. And courage. And intelligence. She was not a shrew or a hysteric. She had seen through his plan to save her embarrassment and played right along.

    Fun fact: the lass in question is the daughter of an English spy from the Napoleonic wars.

    Buy link: Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071D52388

    Again, this is specially priced at 99 cents for a limited time.

    Thanks for this opportunity, Alicia!

  3. And for my contribution…

    Ruined – Martini Club 4 The 1920’s. Vintage Romance

    5 lines from page 5:
    “Bloody horsefeathers. Damn, damn, damnation.”
    Her mother would have said that maybe the poor bloke needed it worse than she did, but her mother was addle-brained if she believed that, God rest her soul. The chances the thief needed the money more than she did were slim. Even if he did, that was of no consequence.

    Fun Fact:
    Well, everyone has probably heard about how the stories came about because myself and three of my author friends have been meeting weekly at a place called the Martini Lounge in Edmond, OK, and we LOVE the place and we decided to base stories on a similar establishment. Our heroines are all friends who came to America from England to start a new life. (there are three other novellas in the ‘series’ – one by each of three friends). And, we are currently working on a follow up series of novellas set in 1947. Our heroines are the offspring (or in one case, the niece) of our heroines in the 20’s stories. Amanda moved to New Mexico two years ago, and Kathy moved to Seattle in April, boohoooo, so Krysta and I are the only MC authors left in Oklahoma. It’s lonely, but we manage to get through it each week. I mean, we do have booze to help us through. 😀
