Teaser from page 305

You can't use criminal thinking to account for the actions of the insane.  It ain't gonna work that way.  That's what I'm trying to say.  Some things in life are logically illogical."

  2. I love that "logically illogical" I agree not everything fits in a tidy box. You can find my teaser at The Bookish Snob

  3. I like the thought that some things are logically illogical. I wonder if the opposite is also true. My teaser is from Beatiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. Happy reading!

  9. Here is my teaser from "The Lodestone Book One: The Sea of Storms" by Mark Whiteway (Prologue):

    It was early in the afternoon, when Kal first saw the flying rock.

    Well, perhaps "flying" was a slight exaggeration; a subtle embellishment that he might have used later when trying to impress his younger brother, or his friends after third-day prayers. It was a least enough to break Kal out of his reverie. Hymarr's reaction was the last thing he had expected.

    He has been rehearsing in his mind for days beforehand how he would ask her to accompany him to the Spring Gratitude Service. That morning, as he lay in his bedchamber, before even Ali-Gan, the yellow sun, has risen over the western horizon, he determined that today was going to be the day.

  13. But how simple it is to plea insanity in the hopes of getting away from the crime.... too easy to loose our marbles when justice is at stake with our lives.
