Teaser Tuesday is a meme held over at Books and a Beat.

To participate, all you have to do is:

• Grab your current read

• Open to a random page

• Share at least 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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

“My name is Cassius,” the young man said.

The barkeep grunted, his face low over his plate, eyes down.

“I don’t make it a habit of eating with strangers.”  Cassius sipped from his cup and watched the barkeep as he ate.

“Is that your coy way of asking my name?” the barkeep snapped, without raising his head.

“I didn’t think it was so coy.”

“A word of advice, boy.”  The barkeep gripped his fork as though prepared to defend himself with it.  “Around here, you mind your fucking business, and others will do the same.  That may seem strange to a mainlander like you, but it’s our way.”

“Is the language necessary?”

The barkeep smiled.  “My apologies.”

“Why do you assume I’m from the mainland.”

“Your delicate sensibilities for a start.  And your carelessness.  No one from the island would walk into a bar and throw gold around the way you did.  Not if he wanted to live long.”

“I can take care of myself,” Cassius said.

The barkeep laughed and began to choke from laughing.  He sipped his wine.

Purchase the book at Amazon.
