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

“The world is one unending chess match, my dear, and I am the one playing it how I please. I poke and prod to move my pieces to places I find desirable. And the defiant ones who resist me I simply remove from the board." He pulled up his right sleeve, showing Laura a sheathed dagger strapped to his arm. "But you, Laura, are not of this chess match at all. You walked unexpectedly onto my board, scattering my pieces out of the way, the ones that I had worked on so tirelessly to arrange to perfection.”
J.S. Bailey, The Land Beyond the Portal

“There are people who hate the truth. It is a poison to them. The only way to protect themselves from the poison is to eliminate those who bring it.”
J.S. Bailey, Vapors

“Only the flesh dies, Kerry. The flesh is vapor. When the vapor drifts away and is gone, only we remain.”
J.S. Bailey, Vapors

“Oh, fine.' Rochelle sprinkled some water over one of the glowstones and laid the object down in the center of their tiny camp. 'I didn't know you were afraid of the dark.'

'It isn't the dark I'm afraid of. It's the things hiding in the dark that I can't see.' Laura closed her eyes. 'Like ninjas.”

So glad to hear it! :) Have you checked out my short story Vapors yet? It's only available as an ebook through Amazon, but they have some kind of app that people can download onto their computers so they can read Kindle books that way. Thanks again for your support!

Have a blessed evening!
