So, see, I've sold a few hundred copies of Molly September since 2011 when it came out. It's always been the most neglected of my titles. It's the book I started so long ago the origins are lost in myth and legend and rewrote almost from scratch at least four times.

But see, I never meant to self-publish. I wanted the dream, the whole Louisa May Alcott dream, I've been carrying around all my l... Read more of this blog post »

P.G. Wodehouse, Uncle Dynamite 1932, I think. Somethings never change in the slightest!
Uncle Dynamite by P.G. Wodehouse
“Too often when a publisher entertains an author at the midday meal a rather sombre note tinges the table talk. The host is apt to sigh a good deal and to choose as the theme of his remarks the hardness of the times, the stagnant condition of the book trade and the growing price of pulp paper. And when his guest tries to cheer him up by suggesting that these disadvantages may be offset by a spirited policy of publicity, he sighs again and says that eulogies of an author’s work displayed in the press at the publisher’s expense are of little or no value, the only advertising that counts being—how shall he put it—well, what he might perhaps describe as word-of-mouth advertising.”
P.G. Wodehouse

THE JAMES MASON C...: * THE BEST BOOK YOU READ THIS YEAR 125 443 Jul 13, 2018 05:42PM  
Orson Scott Card
“At last he came to a door, with these words in glowing emeralds:

THE END OF THE WORLD

He did not hesitate. He opened the door and stepped through.”
Orson Scott Card, Ender's Game

Mary Doria Russell
“Watching him with one eye, she wondered if men ever figured out that they were more appealing when they were pursuing their own work than when they were pursuing a woman.”
Mary Doria Russell, The Sparrow

Mary Doria Russell
“There's an old Jewish story that says in the beginning God was everywhere and everything, a totality. But to make creation, God had to remove Himself from some part of the universe, so something besides Himself could exist. So He breathed in, and in the places where God withdrew, there creation exists."

So God just leaves?"

No. He watches. He rejoices. He weeps. He observes the moral drama of human life and gives meaning to it by caring passionately about us, and remembering."

Matthew ten, verse twenty-nine: Not one sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it."

But the sparrow still falls.”
Mary Doria Russell, The Sparrow

Mary Doria Russell
“It is the human condition to ask questions like Anne’s last night and to receive no plain answers," he said. "Perhaps this is because we can’t understand the answers, because we are incapable of knowing God’s ways and God’s thoughts. We are, after all, only very clever tailless primates, doing the best we can, but limited. Perhaps we must all own up to being agnostic, unable to know the unknowable.”
Mary Doria Russell, The Sparrow

Edgar Cantero
“You're reversing causality. Dreams don't trigger events-events trigger dreams; our experiences feed our minds.”
