Teaser Tuesday and Tuesday Teaser (from When I Wake, my WIP)

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be ReadingTuesday Teaser is a twist that Melissa at I Swim For Oceans puts on TT, where you shares a few sentences from your WIP.
Here are the rules: Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page, and 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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.

Forgotten by Cat Patrick

Each night when 16 year-old London Lane goes to sleep, her whole world disappears. In the morning, all that's left is a note telling her about a day she can't remember. The whole scenario doesn't exactly make high school or dating that hot guy whose name she can't seem to recall any easier. But when London starts experiencing disturbing visions she can't make sense of, she realizes it's time to learn a little more about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future.

When I finally accept it, the truth stings. But there's no time to dwell on it, and there are only two choices: I can remind myself about someone who is not a part of my life, or I can leave him out of my note and save myself from going through this all over again tomorrow.

From my work in progress When I Wake

 After a jumping accident, sixteen-year-old Jessie has finally began riding again, and dating her long time crush, Ben, who’s on the fast track to a career in the NHL. But when something terrible happens to Jessie, Ben feels responsible, and both their lives will never be the same.

She smacked my hand “Quit that. I worked too hard on that do. And I’ve only been eyeing him for the past year. I wonder if he’s gay?”
“Kayla! Just because he’s not falling over you doesn’t mean he’s gay.”
“Just sayin’. He’s fine though. I’ll just have to be less subtle.”
“What? Jump his bones in front of the whole team?”
“No silly. But don’t tell me you wouldn’t jump at that opportunity with Ben if it presented itself.”


  1. That first teaser is terrifying and sad. Good one!

    Mine's from The Rook Trilogy.

  2. I like your teasers, the first is my favourite. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2011/04/teaser-tuesdays-lowcountry-summer.html

  3. Great teaser from your WIP! Love the cover, too-- is it official, or a photoshop? Either way, it's beautiful. :)

  4. Oh you have Forgotten! I can't wait to read that one, what a fantastic teaser. And I think I'll be a fan of Ben's if and when we all get to read your WIP:)

  5. Great teasers!

    I'm looking forward to reading Forgotten and Good luck with your WIP :)



  6. Great teasers. I'm really looking forward to reading Forgotten.

  7. I love that you're posting teasers from your WIP! I'm still in draft mode on mine, so not quite at the point where I'm ready to tease yet. Instead, on Wednesdays I've been doing word counts and talking about what aspects of writing I've encountered that particular week!

    I love your idea, especially the fact that there are HORSES. I haven't read a good book with horses in ages!

    I love the "cover." Did you design it yourself? I like the way her hair is spilling out.

    I'm DYING to read "Forgotten." You're so lucky to have an early copy!

    I'm going to follow you and watch your writing progress. Good luck!

  8. I like both!
