Tantalus Tuesday

Welcome to the monthly regular (or irregular) feature of Tantalus Tuesday.

This is where I get to tease you with some little excerpt from my WiP. But I'm not going to give any setup to the excerpt. That's what makes it even more tantalizing.

Yes, I'm a nerd and I will freely reference classical mythology whenever it pops into my head.

Here is an excerpt from the Sunstone Trilogy. But I'm not going to say which book. And I'm not going to preface it at all. (Well, except for what I already did to preface it.)


That's it for this edition of Tantalus Tuesday. Join us next time for another titilizing teaser!
(Okay, I'll stop with the consonance now.)


  1. Sounds interesting! I can't wait until the next Tantalus Tuesday!

  2. Great teaser! Beautiful writing—gave me goosebumps. There’s so much going on in that paragraph-the elements-movements-sights-sounds-feelings-foreboding-hope-

    I’ll have to take another look at this later!

  3. Oooh, Shadowed Panic. I like. I like a lot.

  4. Glad someone thought my teasing my book was interesting.

    Thanks, guys.

    SF, I'm glad it made you feel all that. It's exactly what I was aiming for.

    Elana, you didn't think those were overwrought? That was one worry, but I wanted it to sound uber-cool and terrifying.
