Here is my teaser:

Unfortunately, he catches me checking him out and grins. “Rough night. I was still sleeping not even fifteen minutes ago.”
“Nice,” I say, my voice dripping with sarcasm.
“Uh-huh.” His gaze roams over me, lingering on spots that make me vaguely uncomfortable. “What about you? You have a rough one, too?”

His friend scoffed, “Oh, I’m coming with you all right, but not going to sign up. I’m coming to make sure the old hag knows exactly the kind of gal you need.” He made an exaggerated hourglass gesture with his hands.
Three days later, Richard waited for his appointment in an elegantly appointed silvery gray waiting room with a pristine view of the Empire State Building. Spencer flipped through books full of women’s profiles like he was a kid in a candy store.
“Look at this one! Yowza, Richie, I think you might be on to something with this matchmaker thing after all.”

Here is my teaser:

“Sancha!” Maria burst into the far bedroom – wailing child in her arms – and lurched at her sleeping daughter, grabbing her arm more tightly than she intended. “Sancha, he won’t take the bottle. He won’t calm down. You have to-”
“Mmmnn.”
“Sancha! Your baby needs you.”
On cue, the confirming shriek sliced through the night, stabbing at the teenager’s fragile disposition.
“Aaahh!” Sancha screamed back. “Make him stop!” She covered her ears. “It hurts!”

“Because I think that’s why Alex is so pissed off. You want him to draw one thing and he wants to draw everything. Mister Farmer probably told him he was drawing too much.”
“Graciela, part of my job is to help you understand the expectations that will be put upon you in the real world.”
“Why?” she asked. She sat down across from me. Now, I guess we were getting down to it.
My answer didn’t require a lot of thought. “Because it would be wrong of me to give any of you false assurances about what you’ll be when you grow up.”

Here is my teaser:

“I’m his granddaughter, Alex. I’m protecting him.” She stepped in front of Lord Odin.
“Seriously? A girl? You can’t protect him. No one can.” His eyes focused on the green stone around Alex’s neck. He cleared his throat. “I’m here to avenge Shinjan’s death.” Bedlam laughed again. “You’re gonna die! You’re both gonna die! My lightning staff will take care of you.”

Mrs. Humphries spoke in an urgent whisper. “He is aware, but no, he didn’t ask me to come.”
Who the hell is Uri?
“Did you help the boy cross?” Milly spoke the words quickly. Speaking was about the only thing she could do quickly, Grape guessed.
“No. That was all Uri and the boy.”
“So Uri will help a stranger but not me?”
“That boy is no stranger,” Mrs. Humphries hissed.

“Move here,” growled one of the soldiers, and I could see the end of his machine gun go up, showing me he was aiming at them.
Amanda started crying.
“Please…” said my mom as she moved, protecting Amanda. “We’ve done nothing, we’re just villagers.”

Here is my teaser:

“Go haunted-house. Come back with stories.”
“Come with me”.
Instantly, her smile vanished. I’ve seen my dead person for the day, thanks. Oh fuck, David.” Her face crumpled again. I reached for her hand, but she shook it off. “Really,” she snapped, and I jerked back. “I want you to go. I want to be alone.”

I smile before I can stop myself, having a flashback to a beautiful woman with toffee-colored hair and warm brown eyes. She’d been that alive once. She’d been my world.
Before her life was ripped out of her.

Here is my teaser:

I went into my room and studied the back wall. What was on the other side? I put my ear to the wall, between movie posters for The Shining and Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but I didn’t hear anything. I tapped the wall. It sounded hollow.
My room had a closet at the back. I got a flashlight, pulled aside the clothes hanging there,
