Teaser Tuesday - it's been a long time...


It's been way too long since I participated in a Teaser Tuesday post - I miss doing these.  I'm a day late on this, but better late than never....(sometimes)
Hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading, we post short teasers (of course, no spoilers should be posted) of books we're currently reading.

"Humans are pretty complicated," I said.

"No, Boy.  Rain-forest ecosystems are complicated.  Humans are just a mess."

*a teen aged son of Frankenstein - stitched together (of course!), first love, monsters, men.... to quote George Takei...  Oh Myyy!  According to one of the book blurbs, this is a "...mashup of Old World myth and post-modern techno-geek..."   That's good enough for me; and love the cover!


Another read is from the Steampunk Trails first edition

The Scarlet Derby and Midnight Jay

Mary, on the other hand, wielded a parasol.  What was its special function?  Nothing.  It was merely a parasol.  

*in 1898 London, a husband and wife fight evil with the help of chemicals (her husband's) and a parasol.  There's more to the story, but I like my synopsis.  *grin*  You can click on cover for link to buy, click on Mike's name for link to his comic strip, click on Steampunk above for link to amazon and excerpt and click on J.A. Campbell's name above for her website where there is lots of goodies to explore. 

And I leave you with....Vampire Kitty!
