Teaser Tuesday - April 9, 2013

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! 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!

This week my TT is from Tinker (Elfhome #1) by Wen Spencer

*PS - I do a re-read of this series anytime a book by Ms. Spencer is getting near release date - even if it's not in this series.

From Page 13

By the time she got Windwolf to the multiple trailers that served as the scrap yards office and her workshop, she knew why vids always had men saving women and rarely the other way around.  There just wasn't any way a woman - well a five-foot-nothing woman- could carry around an unconscious, bleeding man in any artistic manner.

Move Over, Buffy! Tinker Not Only Kicks
Supernatural Butt
Shes a Techie Genius, Too!

Inventor, girl genius Tinker lives in a near-future Pittsburgh which now exists mostly in the land of the elves. She runs her salvage business, pays her taxes, and tries to keep the local ambient level of magic down with gadgets of her own design. When a pack of wargs chase an Elven noble into her scrap yard, life as she knows it takes a serious detour. Tinker finds herself taking on the Elven court, the NSA, the Elven Interdimensional Agency, technology smugglers and a college-minded Xenobiologist as she tries to stay focused on whats really important her first date. Armed with an intelligence the size of a planet, steel toed boots, and a junk yard dog attitude, Tinker is ready to kick butt to get her first kiss.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!


  1. Tinker sounds like a strong woman who can take care of herself. I'd like to read more.

  2. LOL...great teaser--and so true. Thanks for visiting!

  3. I loved this story but I still have the most recent on my TBR mountain. I wish I could just read books I already own sometimes instead of all the review copies I get. Happy reading!

  4. I've never heard of this book or the author, but I like the sound of that heroine! Great teaser! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Nope - no way to make that carrying artistic!

    Thanks for visiting.
