“I mean, electric shock? Isn’t that a bit... electric shock-y?”
Emmett Spain, Old Haunts: A London City Novel

“I looked like a corpse, and not a particularly fresh corpse at that.”
Emmett Spain, Old Haunts: A London City Novel

“From his vantage point on the window sill, The Dude cocked a rear leg back over his head and proceeded to lick at his private parts with a thoroughness that would make a lesser man blush. I shook my head at the sight and mumbled, “Show off,” in the animal’s general direction. For a moment the tiny kitten hesitated, leg still extended behind its head, face still over its crotch. It narrowed its eyes at me, let out a displeased sound, then promptly got back to work.

I suppose there are worse things than being a cat.”
Emmett Spain, Old Haunts: A London City Novel

“It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

“It is your decisions, and not your conditions, that determine your destiny.”
Tony Robbins

“They say you can know a man by his enemies, Dresden." He smiled, and laughter lurked beneath his next words, never quite surfacing. "You defy beings that should cow you into silence. You resist forces that are inevitable for no more reason than that you believe they should be resisted. You bow your head to neither demons nor angels, and you put yourself in harm's way to defend those who cannot defend themselves." He nodded slowly. "I think I like you.”
Jim Butcher, Changes

“We are not going to die."

Butters stared up at me, pale, his eyes terrified. "We're not?"

"No. And do you know why?" He shook his head. "Because Thomas is too pretty to die. And because I'm too stubborn to die." I hauled on the shirt even harder. "And most of all because tomorrow is Oktoberfest, Butters, and polka will never die.”
Jim Butcher, Dead Beat

“I still can't believe," Michael said, sotto voce, "that you came to the Vampires' Masquerade Ball dressed as a vampire.”
Jim Butcher, Grave Peril

David Riggins Emmett,

I have recently published a newly edited version of my book, Boys of the fatherless and I would like to get some honest reviews of the new edit. The Kindle version is currently .99 but you can read the first chapter for free on Amazon. I am also running a giveaway on goodreads for 10 printed copies.

Thank you for your help.

David Riggins
