Teaser Tuesday (Oct. 22)

It’s Teusday and you know what that means. You’ll be misspelling that word all day, but besides that. It’s taco & dollar Guinness night at Carlos Murphy, absolutely, but what else! It’s the eve of Humpday Next? Now you’re cooking with camels, but that still isn’t the focus of this post, and since I’ve just now remembered what that is, I’ll cut short this extended rim shot before my Oldtimer Rhyming habit kicks back in…

drumroll

...der-de-der...La-la-la…oh hey. You still here? Were we supposed to…? Oh, right. I was posting & postulating now, wasn’t I…Something about….ahh…words to the effect of: There once was a blogger named Tucker…no, no…that doesn’t sound right. Hmmm. * scratches noggin, delicately sampling a fish flake as she wonders * I got it!  It was a riddle. If you wake up early on Toozday, is that the same as waking up 2x as early on another weekday? No, no, that sounds a bit off, too. Huh….let’s deconstruct this, shall we? Let’s work our way backward. Let us Tarantino this, even.

2…1…

Ahem: Tewsday sounds suspiciously like 2, which reminds me I wanted “to”…ah…right, rite, write. Post 2 random lines from the book I currently read to tempt you into tome-testing yourself. Discovered at Al Forbes luscious shutterbugger spot, and hosted by Miz B of “Should Be Reading”, Teaser Tewesdays is a weekly bookish meme, aka “Tell & Show”, “Skim & Scan”, or “Decipher & Dish”. Depends what language you speak. Simply anyone can play along, too! You don’t even have to spell Touzday accurately, but do try.😉 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!–

Miz B teaser Teusdays

Since I am deep into at least 2 books presently—one for each eyeball—I’ll go ahead and double down, giving you 2x the bang for your book, and “not spoil” a coupla’ titles. So, go ahead and guess what the titles are…lo, lo, lo…

The Eye Dancers

Michael Fedison is an author of merit

by Michael Fedison

And the sample: “Joe Marma felt like he had just been shot out of a cannon. He surged through the night air, a bullet, a spaceship, a weightless freight train with wings and jet propulsion, and silent inexhaustible engines.”  (Start Chapter 21)

And Teugh:

The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

Paulette Mahurin is a fine author

by Paulette Mahurin

And the sample: “Edra looked at Mildred and smiled. They continued to reminisce, unaware that the next seventy-two hours would bring the news announcing the conviction of Oscar Wilde.”

Youtube interview with Paulette

Meet Paulette on her blog!

All rib-nudging aside, these 2 authors are gifted story-tellers, and altogether bangin’ peeps. Michael is tireless in his thoughtful support of fellow bloggers, a family man of principal, and a heckuva engaging writer, while Paulette crafts a well-turned phrase, as well—taking top honors in this animal lover’s heart by altruistically donating all her proceeds to benefit the Santa Paula No-Kill Animal Shelter. A thanks to Miz B for this fun premise to post, and here’s wishin’ you the best rest of your 2’sday!! At least that “Oneday” is over!!

  1. Thanks so much for the shout-out, Karen!:) I really appreciate it!

    • :mregreen:

      an’ me, too–you too.🙂

      You are a great writer! And I, I was once an equi-great reader. If Life would just slow the bleep down…which, as things evolve, may happen in a month or two.

      Just sent off my second batch o’ “hard” Chatter this morning. (the gazette) I have some news, but I’ll wait for a post.

  2. Oh my goodness, what an unexpected and wonderful surprise and to share it with Michael Fedison of The Eye Dancer fame, is such a treat. Very grateful for the shout out in the name of tolerance and to help our furry friends. Love, Paulette

  3. Reblogged this on The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap and commented:
    Got a surprise shout out from the lovely authoress of Charron’s Chatter. I’m in really great company with The Eye Dancers’ Michael Feldison. Thank you so much, Karen.

    • Paulette–it was my pleasure. I was feeling just awful about not saying something sooner–i want to review both of your books, and found this opportunity to at least “shout out”. The best is yet to come–for both the literature and the reviews!

      Also, it’s awesome to support someone I respect & admire, and whose cause is so profoundly selfless.

  4. Very nice of you to post this. Came from Paulette’s reblog. You’ve a great site. I enjoyed cruising around and seeing your writing.

  5. Reblogged this on tazziesplace and commented:
    The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap and Paulette Mahurin get a wonderful shout out from the very talented author Karen Robiscoe. Check out her great blog site over at Charron’s Chatter.

    • Tazzie!! You are uh-MAZING! Truly great, making me all kinds of happy here at the homestead. (as i tinker with a post-work, pre-dinner bit o’ silliness) You are cotton candy good, I tell you.🙂 I am on my way to check your site right now. If it’s anything like you, it’s sure to be a treat.

  6. Your post reminded me to pick up the ingredients for tacos. I have been craving them for weeks but keep forgetting to get stuff to make them. Yummy Yum Yum

    • sounds delish! I made “red enchiladas” over at my PT today…I guess I “subliminalized” us both!

      So I am a shopper’s helper. I like it! You should read my Yahoo post: Cutting Cookie’s Corners, over there on the right sometime–and you would see why. Anyways. Must post a bit o’ nonsense I wrote…:) Nice to “see” you.🙂

    • Great, now I am getting the ingredients for fajitas and quesadillas too. Looks like a South of the Border week ahead I will be checking out your Yahoo posts soon. As I said before “how do you fit everything in daily” you must be quicker than a Mexican jumping bean. .

    • muy bueno! must away to PT!!🙂 Have the best day, ahadrain!

  7. You made international eNews today. The link changes daily so if you miss this today it’ll have changed. Hope you get to see it. Kerry Dwyer who puts this together is a wonderful author and friend of mine who lives in France. She’s kind enough to pick up some of my posts and did with the reblog I did of yours here. Hope it brings your great site some new well deserved energy to let more of the world see your talent. http://paper.li/DwyerKerry/1346406260?edition_id=60cdfd50-3bc7-11e3-a495-0025907212e8&utm_campaign=paper_sub&utm_medium=email&utm_source=subscription

    • oh my!! Would you look at that! How incredible!! How absolutely…wow!

      Paulette I am so …speechless (wow for once) I literally don’t know how to express how i feel right now, though I can say it is all so GOOD! You are as special as they come, and your kindness is so appreciated. As is Kerry Dwyer’s discerning eye..;)

      I think I am going to have to go to fb for this one!!! THANK YOU GUYS!! (ladies, of course,,,:)

  8. I don’t know why but I have been wanting to do this misspelling “thing’ for a while now…so, please allow me to greet you on this chilly, snow-announcing but still beautiful Thrusday!

  9. Charron, I got this as a reblog from “The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap, and truly loved it, but as fair warning I type like this all the time miss spelling words without reason. I am possible the worst speller in the world. I am so bad I have a human spell check living 2 doors down. Thank you for a wonderful read, and a big dang smile. All the best Bill

    • Thank you, Bill. That makes me positively beam with delight! And you know, some of my finest inspiorations come from the randomly misspelled word. It triggers a thought pattern, and…the rest is bloggery. Pop in whenever the fancy strikes! Happy weekend to you, too–:)

  10. Thank you for the link to my blog on this. I love what you have done with it🙂 Nice that you got global eRecognition🙂

    • Hey…huh huh…breathing down neck…hehe…Not really. Surfing bits for my spread for the Turkey Day edition.

      It IS great, and you are SO welcome! The buzz is directly credited to Paulette Mahurin, a ONE-derful author/humanist who lives here in Cally, wrote a stellar book: The persecution of Mildred Dunlap, the entire proceeds of which go to a local, no kill animal shelter.

      Her kindness isn’t limited to the four-footed; she picked up the ball–re-blogging this post, which in turn led to a lady at the newswire re-blogging that.

      I have had 3 blog posts featured now–an op-ed, AND a poy-m!–and it is always exciting to discover. Makes you feel all Connie Chung or something.🙂 Well, you might be Piers Morgan…;)

    • Haha Yeah I know what you mean. I had a message that one of my tweets was featured on one of them magazine things, and I thought “yay” turns out it was a retweet of mine :-\

      I think it’s wonderful that this happened very quickly By being reblogged twice, you will have received much more readership. She sounds like a onederful human
