Teaser Tuesday




* Grab your current read.
* Let the book fall open to a random page.
* Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
* You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from…that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given.
* Please avoid spoilers!


My Teaser:

He looked offended. his hand combing through her thick coat. "She's more than a person, she's my partner. She'd take a bullet for me, and I'd take one for her. That the way it works."

~ Page 153, Rock Bottom - Erin Brockovich

  4. I must admit I've seen the movie but never read the book. And I always know the books are much better than a movie...movies just don't do the justice that you find in writing!!

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.
