Wow, it's been a long, long time since I posted a Teaser Tuesday quote. The hubby and I have been spending the last couple of months getting ready for our move to Texas. And then actually moving to Texas. And then getting settled in the new house in Texas.
And all during that time, I really haven't had much time for blogging -- or reading, either. So this week's quote is coming from one of the books I should be reading right now -- Michael Frayn's new novel, Skios:
...she had slowly become aware of...what? Something. Some kind of feeling in her back. An uneasiness...The faint clammy touch of an alien gaze resting upon it. She was not alone. She was being watched. This was when the freezing paralysis had crept through her, even in the heat of the mid-morning sun. (p.92)Sorry -- I know that's a lot more than two sentences (as usual). And since I haven't actually started this one, I'm not sure what's going on there, or who's watching who. Sounds a little more mysterious than I usually expect from Frayn, but snippets can be deceiving.
