It’s a little rough around the edges, but I thought I would give this a try and got the idea from Alexandra Christian for a #TeaserTuesday excerpt of the novel I’m working on “The Adventures of Calem Martin: Through the Doorway.” This is still in need of heavy edits, but perhaps it could help to get interest gathered in it.
I suppose the idea behind Teaser Tuesday is to post one paragraph of your work on your blog and link it to Facebook and Twitter. Considering the good stuff is just happening in my book, I don’t want to give much out yet, so it was a little difficult finding something that was random enough to not give any real big spoilers. Enjoy!
Calem wasn’t sure what to make of all of this. From the sound of it, this ‘toarnus’ sounded huge and just as he suspected, the creature pushed trees out of its way like they were nothing more than small blocks. It had to be at least half the size of a the tallest trees surrounding them, standing on four thick legs with large pointed hooves, it’s face looked as if it had been caught in a blender and did not properly heal. Its skin looked rough, gray and almost scaly and thick. Two bulls horns protruded from either side of its scalp, ears lopsided underneath and long tusks were crooked in its mouth. The creature had to be as thick as an elephant but much uglier. When it looked down at them it paused in its movements for a second before its white glazed eyes were hidden behind wrinkled skin and turned back to lock themselves right at the two. Then at that moment, it pulled its large head backward and let loose an ear piercing shrill.
