Teaser Tuesday (13)

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.

This weeks teaser comes from Shadow Hills by Anastasia Hopcus.

“It isn’t you,” a voice said behind me, deep & melodic.
I turned and saw him. Raven black hair and eyes that seemed to shift colors – gray, blue, and pale green.
I looked at the headstone, then down at my dirty and torn clothes.
“But it is me,” I whispered.
“It doesn’t have to be.”
The gravestone was changing, the letters shifting.
“You know who it is. You just have to wake up.” He put his hand on my shoulder. “Phe, wake up.”

Pg 1/2

I know its longer than my usual teasers but there there was too much good stuff on one page to pass up.

I saw that you are a part of the Debut Author Challenge! That is so amazing that you are supporting debut authors and I only recently found out that I am going to be one!!! I wanted to ask if you wouldn’t mind heading over to my blog and giving me your opinion. As a blogger turned author I would really appreciate it and the publisher is still giving out ARCs so you might have a chance at a free copy! Thank you and I hope you will stop by and check out The Thirteenth Chime!

P.S.- My release date if Friday the 13th (August this year) isn't that crazy?
