Teaser Tuesday - Chicks Kick Butt

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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I picked up an awesome new anthology at Gen Con called Chicks Kick Butt. It's edited by Rachel Caine and Kerrie L. Hughes. It features stories from great writers like Lilith Saintcrow, L.A. Banks and P.N. Elrod. I've always loved strong female protagonists. This anthology is full of them!
Here's the teaser:
The instant he was fully solid, I swung and slammed the broomstick into the side of his head as hard as I could. The temple bones are thin there, more easily broken if hit with enough force. ("Vampires Prefer Blondes" by P.N. Elrod, page 123)
