“The rain fell like dead bullets.”
Scott Nicholson

“Then on your tombstone, where you only get a little bit of space to sum up your life, some wax-faced creep chisels a set of meaningless numbers instead of poetry or a secret love or the name of your favorite candy.

In the end, all you get is a few words.”
Scott Nicholson

“Some artists are normal people who just happen to make things because we can't figure out how in the hell to communicate with people.”
Scott Nicholson, The Manor

“You believe in a book that has talking animals, wizards, witches, demons, sticks turning into snakes, burning bushes, food falling from the sky, people walking on water, and all sorts of magical, absurd and primitive stories, and you say that we are the ones that need help?”
Mark Twain

“When you get right down to it, everybody's having a perfectly lousy time of it, and I mean everyone. And the hell of it is, nothing seems to help much.”
Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan

“Language is courage: the ability to conceive a thought, to speak it, and by doing so to make it true.”
Salman Rushdie, The Satanic Verses

Roxanne Hi Scott!
It's great to meet you, thank you very much for the friends request :)


Blaise I just finished As I Die Lying and would like to say it was a wonderful book. It had the grit and mood of a Stephen King mixed with the creativity and polish of Neil Gaiman. It is such an honor to be able to tell you this directly. Mr. Nicholson, you are my favorite author.


Dustin Hi, Scott-

Have a great night!
