Ambrosia’s little note:
Happy Teaser Tuesday again everyone. I hope this Tuesday finds you very well. Can we be entering the last part of October already? Crazy?! It is my favorite month, and Halloween is almost upon us. Personally I feel like I didn’t get to do my usual stuff done this month but that is okay, next year will be better in that respect. There are some big plans for decorating. I hope your reading is going well this week as well, anyone enjoying anything spooky? I’m not, haha well I suppose some might think digging into the history I am is spooky but I don’t.
“Aesop himself was not immune to enjoyment. Centuries ago, he supported the courtesan Rhodopsis. And La Fontaine, the man who, in the seventeenth century, transformed Aesop’s tales into French poetry, was present more then once when Ninon entertained her guests by playing the lute. He must have been transfixed like everyone else. Despite the moral of the tale, his appreciation of music is evident in the beautiful rhymes and rhythms of his telling.” ~ The Book of the Courtesans: A Catalogue of Their VirtuesThe Book of the Courtesans: A Catalogue of Their VirtuesThe Book of the Courtesans: A Catalogue of Their Virtues by Susan Griffin

Interesting excerpt! Here’s mine: ”IF YOU ONLY KNEW”
That’s pretty fascinating! Aesop sounds vaguely familiar! Here’s my teaser from Eternal Rider by Larissa Ione: https://writingcrazyme.blogspot.com/2019/10/teaser-tuesday-445-october-22nd.html
Hm. That’s Aesop of the Fables fame, isn’t it? I loved those when I was a girl… So… is Griffin saying that male authors who kept courtesans wrote better because of it??
Here is my Teaser. https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2019/10/22/teaser-tuesday-22nd-october-2019-brainfluffbookblog-teasertuesday/
Confessions of a Madwoman (2005) by MariJo Moore:
… a sacred fury
an uncommon madness
a scattering of birds
Sounds like a very interesting book!
I don’t do “scary” Halloween, just pumpkins and candy. 🙂
My teaser is late, but finally up: https://www.rosecityreader.com/2019/10/teaser-tuesday-birds-of-wonder-by.html
