tuesday teaser

This is my other favorite weekly meme - hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading - we get a chance to tease each other with snippets from books.
I had planned to post a teaser from Pegasus, but I took the book to work (what! I thought there might be a moment of down time???When I'm working with 138 kids!!??!! What was I thinking!) and I forgot to bring the book home. So you get a tease from....

Bitter Angels
written by C.L. Anderson (who I just found out is also Sara Zettel - apparently she writes ...science fiction also...um...okay)

Before the tease, I want to share the author info at the back of the book (cause it was cute)
"C.L. Anderson has been known to tell people she lives in a stately Victorian home on a windswept island in Lake Superior with her three sisters and their pet wolf, Manfred. She has also been known to tell people she is a science-fiction writer living near Ann Arbor, Michigan, with her husband, son, and a cat. What is known is that this is her first novel for Spectra, and more of her work can be found at www.bookviewcafe.com "
This really is a science fiction book - that I picked up a while ago, I feel like reading it now, so it's going to be my go to book when I'm not reading Pegasus (I seem to need to do this).

from page 13:
" I was in bad shape when I arrived on Hospital, one of the Erasmus System's inhabited moons, named, like the others, after its purpose. Most of my fuel and ballast were gone, burned up during a run after water smugglers. Somewhere in the excitement, a safety belt broke, sending our third, Marko Keich, careening across the cockpit. He now had a gash in his head, another on his hand, and a vague look in his eyes that made me suspect major concussion."

Promising so far. I think I'm going to like it. Well, if I had remembered top bring Pegasus home, I would have put up a teaser. I'm hoping to finish it this week.
okay folks - time for bed for me!
