Tantalus Tuesday November — November 23, 2010

Tantalus Tuesday November


Hi all!  Can you believe November is almost over?  Seriously, where does time go?

Anyways.  It’s that time again.  My progress on Clockworks and Cogs goes very slowly, but not so slowly that I don’t have another little teaser snippet to share.

*clip redacted*

Hope everyone has a wonderful week.  I’ll be posting on Wednesday and Friday of this week, but plan on taking the Thanksgiving holiday off from the online world.

Tantalus Tuesday October 2010 — October 19, 2010

Tantalus Tuesday October 2010

Wow, it’s been a while for this one, huh?

Now that I’m actually working on a new project, I figured it was time to revive this old feature.  (Who knows, maybe it’ll keep me moving on the project.)

Without further ado, here’s a brief excerpt from Clockworks and Cogs.


Well, that’s it for this month.  Hope you enjoyed it.  (Please, no critiquing in comments.  This is posted merely for fun, not for feedback.)

Tantalus Tuesday July — July 13, 2010

Tantalus Tuesday July

And it’s not even the end of the month!  Wahoo!

Since I finished my book, I thought I’d go ahead and post another Tantalus.  I usually wait till the end of the month because I either a) forget or b) hope that I’ll write something at some point in the month that’s worthy of a teaser post.

Without further ado…

[Excerpt Removed]

Have a good rest of the month.  I’ll be pretty busy the next little while so my posting may drop a little.  Just giving y’all fair warning.

Tantalus Tuesday June — June 29, 2010

Tantalus Tuesday June

Okay, so I was really, desperately hoping to have a finished manuscript from which to choose a teaser this go around.  But, alas, life took over and the book is not finished.  Yet.

I am a lot closer now than I was last month, though, so that’s something.

Without further ado, here is your little tidbit for the month.

[Excerpt Removed]

There you have it.  Hope you enjoyed it.

Let’s talk! and Tantalus Tuesday — May 18, 2010

Let’s talk! and Tantalus Tuesday

OK, today is the Let’s Talk blogfest, hosted by the lovely Roni of Fiction Groupie fame.

There are a whole bunch of people participating.  The full list of participants can be found here at the original post announcing the fest.

I decided to take the plunge.  This is my favorite bit of dialogue from some of the early parts of Lodestar.  Hope you enjoy it.  And be sure to check out the others as I’m sure they’re all posting uber-fabulous writings.  Humor, tension, romance, suspense, and a slew of other emotions abound in today’s fest.

Without further ado, I present my dialogue.


Well, there you have it.  Now go check out the others’ posts!  I know I will!

And that also concludes this month’s edition of Tantalus Tuesday.  Stay tuned next month when I’ll, fingers crossed, have finished Lodestar.

Tantalus Tuesday April

Well, it’s the end of the month.  I was so hoping to have finished Lodestar by this point.

Oh well.  Such is life.  It’s the end of the month.  More specifically, it’s the last Tuesday of the month.  And that usually means it’s time for another round of Tantalus Tuesday.

So, here you go.  Hope you enjoy this one.  I’m thoroughly enjoying writing this book, even if I don’t get to it as much as I’d like.

[Excerpt removed]

That’s it for this round.  Remember, excerpts are for sheer enjoyment, not for critiquing.  Thanks for stopping by!  I’ll reply to comments via e-mail this week as I’m on a blogging break for finals.  If your e-mail isn’t available to blogger, then you’ll have to wait until next week for me to reply.  See you all in a few days.

Tantalus Tuesday January edition

Holy cow.  Where did this month go?

Oh well.  It’s the last Tuesday of the month, which means it’s Tantalus Tuesday.

Here’s your excerpt.  Enjoy!


So, that’s it for tis month’s installment!  Tune in next time when I maybe have a different sort of excerpt.  We’ll see.
Tantalus Tuesday…er…Thursday — December 31, 2009

Tantalus Tuesday…er…Thursday

Okay, so I realized yesterday morning that I never gave you a Tantalus Tuesday this month.

So, I decided to get it to you on the last Thursday of the month.  (And the last day of the year, too.  Look at that.)

As you read yesterday I’m still not done with Oracles Promise.  But I’m far enough along that I can give you a little teaser from much later in the book than the other teasers have been.

Without further ado…


Well, that’s all for this month and this year.  Until next time.
Tantalus Tuesday — November 17, 2009

Tantalus Tuesday

Yet again it’s time for another rousing rendition of Tantalus Tuesday!  (Reminder, these snippets are completely out of their context.  They are meant to give you a little hint of what may be going on in the other half of my brain that lives in a different world.  No critiquing, please.)

This month we’re back to Oracles Promise for our Tantalus Tuesday.  I’m still not done with the book, but I’m making progress.

Without further ado.


And thus ends our journey through the perilous waters of my mind.  This month, at the very least.

Till next time, friends, I bid you adieu.
