Tuesday Teaser – 1/3/22 – On Wings of Song

This week’s #teasertuesday is from On Wings of Song, which is this month’s sale book.

“Hello.” The old man eyed him up and down. “I didn’t expect to see you here again. What do you want?”

Jochen counted to five before replying, making the effort to keep his tone calm and nonconfrontational. “I saw you speaking to someone before.” He took a deep breath. “I know you probably don’t want to tell me who it is, and you won’t believe me when I tell you he looked like the person I was asking you about yesterday.”

“You’re right about that. I don’t want to tell you who it is.” The old man looked more curious than anything, and not quite as aggressive as the last time they’d spoken. “You’re a persistent one, I’ll give you that. Get to the point, though. I’m not getting any younger.”

“Could you give him something from me?” Jochen fished the note out of his pocket. He’d sealed it inside an envelope with Aiden’s name on the front. He handed it to the old man. “It’s important he gets it as soon as possible.”

The man nodded. He looked at the envelope and then back at Jochen. “I’m not saying he’s here, but what will you do if he doesn’t reply to your note?”

“I’ll walk away and leave him alone. You won’t see me again.”

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at https://annebarwell.wordpress.com
