“He couldn’t call the bookstore haunted. Which Mark Richards considered a shame, really.”
Donna K. Fitch, Second Death

“The program operates on facts, and extrapolates from those facts using a complex series of stochastic functions.”
Donna K. Fitch, Second Death

“I knew damn well she wasn't a seer. I'd checked her wallet after bumping into her accidentally in the lobby.”
Donna K. Fitch, The Color of Darkness and Other Stories

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.”
Dr. Seuss

“There are two typos of people in this world: those who can edit, and those who can't.”
Jarod Kintz, This Book is Not FOR SALE

“Self editing is the path to the dark side. Self editing leads to self delusion, self delusion leads to missed mistakes, missed mistakes lead to bad reviews. Bad reviews are the tools of the dark side.”
Eric T. Benoit

“When you write a book, you spend day after day scanning and identifying the trees. When you’re done, you have to step back and look at the forest.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

“Writing without revising is the literary equivalent of waltzing gaily out of the house in your underwear.”
Patricia Fuller
