Teaser Tuesday

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 (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!
I am going to bend the rules again because I want to share more of my own Nano story with you :D and I would love to hear some of your feedback! What do you think?!

Teaser taken from Night Rider by Myself ;)

Synopsis: This would be a YA type novel with a touch of romance and of course horses. Alice is a recent high school graduate who is a very accomplished competitive rider in Hunter/Jumper, Dressage, and Western/Rodeo. Her parents had arranged for her to attend a private college on the east coast geared specifically to equine professions. However, Alice wants to focus on her studies in English Literature. When she arrives at the college she hides her riding abilities, but can she keep her talent and love of horses hidden?

This Teaser is taken from a scene between Caleb (one of the main characters) and Trenton, his 5 year old brother. Caleb is picking him up in the school's library after playing an indoor soccer game.
Teaser: " “Hey Trey Trey, what are you looking at?” Caleb asked quietly as he pulled up a chair to sit next to his brother.

Without so much as moving Trey whispered “Waiting for the Night Goddess.”

Caleb was puzzled “The Night Goddess?”

Trey smiled with his nose still pressed against the glass, “When the moon is big and bright the Night Goddess uses the jumping ring.”

Caleb was about to question him more when Trey gave a little gasp and pointed a little finger out into the night “see here she is” he whispered with awe in his voice.

Caleb turned to see what had his normally squirmy little brother so riveted and saw a dark figure cantering into view headed right for the fence around the jumping ring. He jumped up prepared to rush out “that’s an accident waiting to happen” he said under his breath. When Trey reached out and grabbed his wrist.

“Don’t worry, the Night Goddess has wings! She never makes a mistake.” Trey  said urgently tugging Caleb’s arm."


  1. Great tease! Very mysterious - makes one wonder just who or what the Night Goddess really is!

  2. Thanks Sunny! I really need to get cracking on the rest of the story so I don't leave everyone hanging forever.
