Here is my teaser:

Every story is a ghost story. All houses are haunted houses; each person is the spectre at their own feast, the wraith dogging their own footsteps.

Here is my teaser:

Cassie leans down from the lowest porch steps and draws the face / vase illusion from the teacher’s handout in the dirt with a stick and it is so beautifully drawn, she thinks, that she needs to make it more permanent. She places dead green beetles where the eyes of the faces would be. She gathers pebbles and uses them to outline the silhouettes of the faces.

“Ah, babosan bomb! We’ve got to stop it!” Yesi shouts.

Any hope of sneaking down the hallway is shattered as her voice bounces off the windows. I watch for the glass to crack as she shrieks our catchphrase.

I try to jump in front of the cart as it careens toward the doors but end up pushing Beto over in the process. He falls to the ground and the cart runs over his hand.

Here is my teaser:

It always amazed me how people just fell in love with one another. I wanted that so badly. I’d sometimes cry if a date went particularly bad because I’d sabotage it. I’d make several excuses to guys I dated that we weren’t compatible or refused to go on a second date because there weren’t any sparks. I wanted those sparks.

Having finished speaking to her prospective client, Ruby replaced the received, testily.

What do they expect? It’s the site of one of Britain’s most notorious mental asylums; countless books and websites have been devoted to the horrendous practices that were carried out there. Of course there’s going to be bad vibes and cold spots. It’s only a matter of time before there’s an actual manifestation with troubled souls galore unable to move on.

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?”

Here is my teaser:

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.”
