Laura Lam answered a question about Seven Devils:
Seven Devils by Laura Lam
There is one semi-detailed sex scene.

There's a fair amount of violence, but we aim to not be gratuitous.

“The circus collects the outsiders like a flame tempts moths.”
Laura Lam, Pantomime

“The circus had been unlike anything I could ever imagine and I could not walk away. I wanted to be a part of the magic, create it and wield it with such skill that it looked effortless. I wanted to fly.”
Laura Lam, Pantomime

“Love? Love is like holding water in your hands. You might have it for a time, but it escapes, leaving you with nothing.”
Laura Lam, Pantomime

“The second thing you have to do to be a writer is to keep on writing. Don't listen to people who tell you that very few people get published and you won't be one of them. Don't listen to your friend who says you are better that Tolkien and don't have to try any more. Keep writing, keep faith in the idea that you have unique stories to tell, and tell them. I meet far too many people who are going to be writers 'someday.' When they are out of high school, when they've finished college, after the wedding, when the kids are older, after I retire . . . That is such a trap You will never have any more free time than you do right now. So, whether you are 12 or 70, you should sit down today and start being a writer if that is what you want to do. You might have to write on a notebook while your kids are playing on the swings or write in your car on your coffee break. That's okay. I think we've all 'been there, done that.' It all starts with the writing. ”
Robin Hobb

“People trust their eyes above all else - but most people see what they wish to see, or what they believe they should see; not what is really there”
