Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading .

Quote two sentences from the book you're currently reading:

Taking care a white babies, that's what I do, along with all the cooking and the cleaning. I done raised seventeen kids in my lifetime. I know how to get them babies to sleep, stop crying, and go in the toilet bowl before they mama even get out a bed in the morning.

  8. Another book I am really looking forward to reading. Certainly says something about the mothers, if they have someone who does all the hard work for them.

    Here's my teaser.

  13. Heard this was a great read. I'll have to pick it up. Thanks for sharing, and for the rare pics in the above post. Good stuff!

    Here's mine, opening chapter of The Legend of Wolfboy - published anonymously by author in contract dispute w/ previous publisher. It begins publishing as it's written this week. http://LegendOfWolfboy.com/ Reviewers can contact the site for a review copy before it's public. —————————————

    Dusk was deepening toward another dark summer night and the chilly mountain air felt like frigid fingers running down their spines.

    A near-full moon began to peak through the majestic mountain pines that dominate the western slope of the California Sierra Nevada mountain range, adding to what was already and eerie atmosphere.

    “It was seven years ago today,” Ryan growled, his voice breaking the silence on this starless night, June 13, 1995. “The car radio said severe thunderstorms were threatening to hit the Sierras, but the Jacksons were set on going on their annual family vacation to Shaver Creek.”
