Teaser Tuesday: “Spirelli Paranormal Investigations: Episodes 1-3”

So this week I’m reading a short omnibus, Spirelli Paranormal Investigations: Episodes 1-3, by Kate Baray, which — as you may surmise — collects three short novels about the adventures of Jack Spirelli, who, uh, investigates the paranormal.  And he has a sidekick who is a dragon that can take the form of a human woman.  Sounds like one of my characters, no?  So of course I had to read it.

Teaser Tuesday 9/15/2015: Still More “Dragonriders of Pern”!

Thread is still falling, dragons are still (mostly) burning it, and somebody has nice hair.

Teaser Tuesday 10/1/2013: “The Shadow of Black Wings”

This week I’m still reading The Shadow of Black Wings by James Calbraith, from the BookBub mailing list.  I’m going to bend the rules a little bit this time in that this teaser quote from the book is not from the page I’m actually on, but it was simply too good not to use.  Here goes:

Teaser Tuesday: “The Shadow of Black Wings”

This week I’m reading The Shadow of Black Wings by James Calbraith, another book I got free from the BookBub mailing list. This one is sort of an alternate Victorian history/steampunk/fantasy mashup. Oh, and there are dragons. (T’Sian would, I think, eat them for lunch, but still, anything’s better with dragons right?) And now, on to the two-sentence quote!
