No Touch Monkey!: And Other Travel Lessons Learned Too Late

Author:

Ayun Halliday

Teaser:

[pg. 117]  Just as the finish line appeared on the horizon, I lost my balance, my windmilling arms hurled the flashlight to its death on the cement floor, and I unleashed a torrent of pee on my sarong.  Remembering the scene where John Malkovich dies of dysentery in The Sheltering Sky, I reminded myself that it could be worse.

I have one more chapter to read of this hilarious travel book, so stay tuned for my review!

[pg. 107]  “What does it taste like?” I inquire.

“You know how sometimes a bad batch of moonshine can make you go blind?” she asks me.

“Yes,” I answer.

“This tastes like blind.”

Teaser:

[pg. 116]  Once you’ve figured out what you want to convey, you can work on expressing that idea with flair…but that requires hard word and creativity.  Consider this lede from Fortune: Like a supermodel past her prime, Victoria’s Secret is showing its age.  This lede is clever.

This will be the last NaNo teaser from me!

I have officially finished NaNo, though I am still writing to get my story done, and I will be happy to dive back into reading real books!

But for today’s Teaser Tuesday, I am going to give you another, and the last, teaser from my NaNoWriMo novel.  Make sure you tell me what you think!

Sonrisa

Me, Kalie Lyn 🙂

Teaser:

Only the sound of one gunshot in the night forced their hands apart, the loud boom causing all three teenagers to jump up in shock.  After the fear had passed, after all three had settled back into the comfort of the couch, did Karim and Lola lock hands again, this time their fingers knowing where to connect with one another’s.

I actually enjoy taking a break from reading.  Yes, I know, I know, I’m now a book criminal just for saying that, but it’s true.  It’s like taking a break from something that you have done everyday for your life and you absolutely love to do.  You realize just how much you miss it, how much you wish you could do it, and when that time comes, it will make reading even better.  So, not reading during NaNo is a blessing in disguise – plus, it helps me concentrate more on my own novel.

So, for today’s Teaser Tuesday, I am going to give you another little teaser from my NaNoWriMo novel I am writing.  Make sure you tell me what you think!

Untitled at the moment

Teaser:

The three friends chanted widely, danced stupidly, laughed hysterically, and smiled contagiously for the rest of the afternoon.  Their worries and sorrows were far away from their minds, and each had not a care in the world.  While the sky and people outside of the dock were bleak, Lola, Karim and Elle were elated, their faces contorting with joy and their stomachs hurting from pains of laughter.

NaNo has me trapped.  I am unable to read or even watch a TV show without constantly thinking of my story.  It’s like a curse, but a curse I love having.

For today’s Teaser Tuesday, I am going to give you another little teaser from my NaNoWriMo novel I am writing.  Make sure you tell me what you think!

Title:

Untitled at the moment

Author:

Me, Kalie Lyn 🙂

Teaser:

Lola watched as the two other officers picked up Mr. Craine’s body, one holding the neighbor’s limp hands, the other holding his limp legs, and carried him down the steps.  By the end of the stairs they seemed to be struggling with the weight of the dead man’s body, and accidentally, or maybe purposely, his head hit the side of the ambulance door before they threw him in, his leg getting in the way of the door closing.

I am still reading the same book as I was last week, and my Teaser Tuesday would be no fun if I just did the same one.

So instead, I am going to give you a little teaser from my NaNoWriMo novel I am writing.  Make sure you tell me what you think!

Title:

Untitled at the moment

Author:

Me, Kalie Lyn 🙂

Teaser:

There has always been violence, always been control, and always been destruction; albeit slow destruction.  Now, the process has sped up, it is tired of waiting, and now we are spiraling out of control, our hands no longer able to break our falls, we will crash face first.
