Welcome to The Once Lost Wanderer. The name is derived from two poems: Amazing Grace by reformed slave trader John Newton, and All That is Gold Does Not Glitter by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Teaser Tuesdays (May 12, 2015)

“It’s said people can go forty days without food, three days without water, and about thirty-five seconds without finding meaning in something…”
WIRED FOR STORY: The Writer’s Guide to Using Brain Science to Hook Readers from the Very First Sentence by Lisa Cron

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


  1. Would not have guessed that teaser was from a writing guide book -- it's great.

    I'm playing today at Beth Fish Reads

  2. Excellent teaser! This one sounds intriguing even to a non-writer like me. Enjoy, and thanks for sharing.

    Here's my teaser for this week: The Ice Twins

  3. Sounds like a different approach to writing. I'm intrigued.
    My Tuesday post features THE OTHER SIDE OF HEARTACHE.

  4. LOL That's funny.
