Anyone can participate. just do the following.

We've got vampire cowboys running an old west town called Tombstone as a resort of sorts. The 9 of them were all turned by the same sire. They don't know where he is now. But, they decided to buy the land that Tombstone is on and make a go of it because they are all tied to the land from being turned there. 

In this scene about 20% into the story (Chapter 3), Riley, a travel blogger, has arrived in the town to find out that there is no internet or cell phone reception. They are allowed to use a landline though to call out. She calls her associate Andi on the phone to make arrangements for Andi to do the posting for her.

"I'll be here. Right here in my same old apartment, watching the same old reality TV because not everybody can be living the dream." (said Andi.)

"Yep. I'm living it all right. I had two packs of peanuts for lunch and spent the entire plane ride next to a woman who told me all about her last gallbladder surgery. She gave me so many details, I could probably do the operation myself if you're ever in need." (Riley said.)

I think it characterizes the relationship between Andi and Riley. Andi is the stay-at-home type who lives vicariously through Riley's adventures. I'll have to read more to see if this is accurate.

What's your teaser this Tuesday? Are you reading a book you got for the holidays? Please share a link or your teaser in the comments and I'll check it out! Thanks for coming by and Happy Reading!


  1. Cowboy vampires? A woman who gave too much info on her surgery? Lol sounds like a fun read.

    My TT

    1. So far it is, but it looks like it's going to definitely be an adult book. The romance parts look hot. Loved your teasers. Thanks for sharing!

  2. They both sounds like interesting characters, especially Riley.

    1. Thanks. I think Riley is going to be an interesting character to follow in the novel.
