The Art of Making Teasers

The Starling

There really is very little art to making teasers. All you really need is an exceptional friend in your back pocket. Someone who can look at your manuscript and pull out all these gems, one liners, two liners, and tiny excerpts that you can’t see. I don’t see them. I can write 100,000 words, a wonderfully engaging and rich story, something that makes MY heart flutter and pulse race, but ask me to go into those 100,000 words and find a line or two to turn into a teaser? I’m like a deer in the head lights. I can’t. That task is beyond me.

Fortunately, I have a really good friend in my back pocket, a few really. Without them, I don’t know what I’d do. I may write the stories, but my village, my tribe, helps me bring them to the light of day.
