There are no rules as far as how big or little your teaser should be, however, do try to keep them at a reasonable length. People may tune out/lose interest if you post half your book on your blog. Just sayin'.

Voila! Easy peasy!
This week I'm sharing a teaser for my short story, Starstruck, which is part of Omnific Publishing's Summer Lovin' Anthology. All proceeds from the anthologies (there are two) are going to Save the Ta-tas to help in the fight against breast cancer. Starstruck is in the Heat Wave anthology, and will be released on July 5th. Woot!
Here's a little lead in to what is going on. Amberly, our heroine, has just pulled off the road with a flat tire. Our hero, "T" has just finished changing her tire when a bright ball of fire explodes onto the cornfield beside them. T wants to go exploring, and Amberly is a bit hesitant.
Standing alongside an ocean of green and gold, she found herself on the edge of a precipice with a choice that weighed heavily on her. If she remained true to form, she’d take the easy way out, thank T for his help, hop into her car and head to work. Life as she knew it would continue, and the morning’s little foray into the Twilight Zone would be nothing more than a blip on her radar screen.
Or she could grab life by the proverbial balls and take a chance. This was her chance. Now was the time to throw caution to the wind and follow the rugged Good Samaritan into the corn and let fate run its course.
Tired of looking back at her life and wondering “what if”, Amberly took a deep breath and jumped. “Okay. Let’s go check it out.” She smiled at T through her lashes and jabbed a finger through the air. “But just so we’re clear…you get to tell my boss I was late to work because I was acting out a scene from Children of the Corn. Got it?”
T’s eyes lit up like the sun, warm and inviting. A low chuckle escaped his lips. “No problem, Sugar.” He gave her hand a small squeeze as they stepped into the field.
