I got a great note from a reader today who had just discovered my Touched Series. She had a few favorite scenes and that gave me an idea for a blog post - I figured I'd share a few of my favorite quotes from Blood Debt. Since Shroud of Lies (Brewer Brothers, book 3) is complete and is going through the editing process now, I'm heading back to the Touched Series to write a 5th book.
ANGELA: "Bravery is measured
by how hard you try, not by whether you actually succeed."
When people hear the
word, “bravery” they typically think of a warrior or soldier in some epic battle. I love this quote because bravery is an
everyday occurrence done by everyday people.
It takes bravery to do what’s right when it would be easier to look the
other way. It takes bravery to be
honest. The context of this quote in the
story reminds the reader that they, themselves do brave actions all the time.
DANIEL: “You know, I saw that
on the news last week. People walking
down the street, minding their own business, and BAM their lips turn elastic
and wrap themselves around a friend’s man.
Happens all the time. It’s a
side-effect from the ‘Stupid Pill.’ Must
have refilled your prescription before you lef’ town.”
LoL! Daniel was a secondary character who stole several scenes during the first four books in the Touched Series. The book I am working on now, number five, is Daniel's book. Daniel is
Cami’s best friend from California and is that constant voice of reason when
she needs it. When Cami first met Drake,
she was trying to explain why she had kissed Drake on the yacht – this quote was
CAMILLE: “That sucks, Drake,
because I do. I want time. I want to savor you. Get to know you. I want something more than just a physical
attraction. I don’t want you to miss me
while we’re apart. I want your whole
body to ache, to go through withdrawals for me.”
I think every woman
wants this level of love. Very few of us
are lucky enough to find that partner who aches for us when we’re apart – but
that’s what I love about Cami: she’s
willing to ignore what everyone else says is tradition and acceptable and wait
for the love she wants to develop.
Would love to hear some of your favorite quotes!
