TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page. Share with us two to three “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

Please avoid spoilers!

From page 71 of Queequeg's Odyssey by Quen Cultra

Within minutes, we heard a faint splashing on both sides of the boat. I beamed a flashlight into the water and to my horror, found it teeming with thousands of sea snakes, each about two feet long, attracted to the light of the lantern. We stuffed rags into the scupper holes and hoped none would crawl aboard.


  1. What's a scupper?

    This sounds more action packed than I imagined.

  2. a scupper is the part of the boat that lets water drain off the deck. it's a little opening cut into the side. imagine it kinda like a gutter that let's the water drain off the roof of your house. same kind of concept.

    and i'm almost done with the book. it's pretty catchy. :)

  3. Oh, that's pretty nifty. I put another shout out to your blog in today. Hope it gets some hits!
