Teaser Tuesday

Hey! I got this great idea from Kaye Dacus who in turn got it from Miz B's Blog (


I will choose a random page from a book I am reading and print two teaser sentences, being careful not to include spoilers. Then, I will share book and author information so you can add the book to your "to be read" list.

This sounded like fun. Please feel free to post a teaser and info about a book you are reading in the comments.

Now for my first TEASER:

"What's wrong, Mommy? Faye pulled back a few inches and set her little hands on Pamela's shoulders. "Did you see the bad man too?"

This teaser is from Creston Mapes' recent release, FEAR HAS A NAME. Here's some more info for you:

When his family’s home is broken
into, journalist Jack Crittendon believes it is a one-time invasion.
But through a series of haunting circumstances, he begins to fear
there is a stalker endangering his wife and two young daughters.
His home life in upheaval, Jack threatens to buy a gun and throws
himself into his work, investigating the story of a depressed pastor
who disappeared with intentions of taking his own life. With his
family’s safety on the line, Jack begins to discover that there are
secrets—with painful, deadly implications—even behind “Christian”
As he begins to unravel the mystery, his courage and faith are
shaken. What if he can’t protect his family? What if he doesn’t make it
through alive? Jack must find the faith to trust a God who allows inconceivable trials, and the
courage to guard his family with danger exploding at every turn.

Creston Mapes is the author of Fear Has a Name, Nobody, Dark Star, and Full Tilt. A journalist, copywriter, and editor, he works from his home-office in Atlanta for some of the nation’s top media companies, Christian ministries, and nationally-recognized corporations. His early years as a reporter inspire many of his novels.
Creston studied journalism at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, and began his writing career 30 years ago. He has fond memories of his boyhood in Bath, Ohio, where he became enchanted with his future wife, Patty, way back in the fourth grade. His father, Bernie, owned and operated The Weathervane Furniture Shop in town. The whole family lived right upstairs in the century-old house known as “The Shop.”

Don't miss adding this book to your "to be read" list!
