teaser tuesday (50)

It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:


Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page. Post two (or more) sentences from that page, along with the title and author. Don’t give anything vital away!


“That night, Valorosa snuck out her bedroom window, saddled her horse, and rode away across the desert toward the Indian village that her father had fled so quickly. She told herself that she was such a good daughter, so dutiful, so loving! But she knew that really, she was a bit bored of making tamales, and wanted an escape.”


-53% [on Kindle] of Terra L. Gearhart-Serna’s “Coyote and Valorosa” in The Beastly Bride by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling (eds.)

Nice teaser. Is this based on a fairy tale or is it original?

Sullivan: It's based on Coyote trickster tales of the indigenous American groups, as well as the classic fairy tale 'Beauty and the Beast.' So far it's hilarious!
