Sale: Edgar Allan Poe's birthday

January 19th is Edgar Allan Poe's 214th birthday! The Library of Congress describes this troubled genius as, "a romantic poet, a master of macabre tales, the originator of the modern detective story, and an acute literary critic, editor, and journalist."

I've made nods to his work in my own books, tattooed his words to my body, even chose my pen name in his honor. So to celebrate, I've put Madi

Quotes by C.S. Poe  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“We’re not dating. We’re still performing some weird mating ritual.”
C.S. Poe, Southernmost Murder

“Mr. Snow.'
'Detective Winter.'
'Do you give all of the men in your life a murder case for Christmas, or just the really special ones?”
C.S. Poe, The Mystery of Nevermore

“People don’t want to know,” he whispered, not looking up.

“Know what?”

“What makes them uncomfortable,” Larkin specified. “Sometimes they don’t know what to say, don’t want to make a bad situation worse. Other times, they only pretend to not know because the empathy required is too big a burden. They pull back. They become distant. They ask how you are the same way they ask if it looks like rain or if you watched that Mets game on TV. People don’t really want to know.”
C.S. Poe, Madison Square Murders

He stared at me with disbelief. [...]
"Love you? Of course I love you. Baby, I fucking worship you.”
Josh Lanyon, The Dark Tide

“Adrien, people get killed all the time. Since when is it your job to find out what happened to them?"

"I'm not usually suspected of murdering them."

"You have been as long as I've known you.”
Josh Lanyon, A Dangerous Thing

“I know you've all heard the advice, "Show, don't tell." The best writers don't tell you, and quite frankly they don't just show you -- they make you feel it, live it, taste it, touch it. Storytelling is about being in the moment with the characters.”
