The working title is NOBODY'S NOTHING, and it is narrated by Paula, the complicated, difficult, thorny, loyal, poisonous and righteously mighty lawyer from SOMEONE ELSE'S LOVE STORY. I have a pinterest board for it where I pin everything that helps me find the voice, if you want to look. That's probably the best way to get a sense of what the book is about:

“God gave us crying so other folks could see when we needed help, and help us.”
Joshilyn Jackson, Gods in Alabama

“There are gods in Alabama: Jack Daniel's, high school quarterbacks, trucks, big tits, and also Jesus.”
Joshilyn Jackson, Gods in Alabama

“I had been born and mostly raised in the South, so I ought to have been able to find a way to reach him. Southern girls are trained from birth up that the way to a man's heart is never through the front door. They may leave a basket of cookies there, and while he's busy picking them up, they're squirming in through a back window.”
Joshilyn Jackson, Gods in Alabama

“This is what it means to die: You do not finish.”
Lydia Netzer, Shine Shine Shine

“Who cares if it's dangerous? Who wants to be the person who doesn't touch two bells together to make a sound, who doesn't hit a baseball with a bat, doesn't grind and orange against a knife. In life, there is only collision to keep us from dissolution, and there is only love to keep us from death. In this bumping into that, there is salvation and sacrament, an end to the endless falling, a wall between us and oblivion.”
Lydia Netzer, How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky

“It’s more like every electron in every atom in the universe paused, breathed in deeply, assessed the situation, and then reversed its course, spinning backward, or the other way, which was the right way all along. And afterward, the universe was exactly the same, but infinitely more right.”
Lydia Netzer, How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky: A Novel

“As if it would slide off their brains at an angle, leaving a scuff mark.”
Lydia Netzer, How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky

“Sometimes you just have to keep away from the things that are trying to kill you, even if they're the same thing that gave birth to you. Sometimes those two things are the same, and their name is mother.”
Lydia Netzer, How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky
