Mystic Invisible by Ryder Hunte Clancy
Mystic Invisible

With flavors of modern folklore and old-world chivalry, Mystic Invisible is a riotously-paced adventure with a hip edge. Monte Darrow as our hero was both endearing and witty, and felt almost like a Scottish Percy Jackson. Highly recommend to any tee ...more

“I'm penniless, alas. If I win, I want a dance. If you win, I'll give you a kiss."

“She let him do it, not only because she came out looking all right in his story, not a clock-throwing ruin of a girl, but also because Benedick's talking about her as if she were already one of them made her one of them. Words. What a tricky, tangled science.”
McKelle George, Speak Easy, Speak Love

“What are you rambling about, you nonsensical contradiction?”

“I want to know everything about you, so I tell you everything about myself.”
Amy Hempel

“To be truthful, some writers stop you dead in your tracks by making you see your own work in the most unflattering light. Each of us will meet a different harbinger of personal failure, some innocent genius chosen by us for reasons having to do with what we see as our own inadequacies.
The only remedy to this I have found is to read a writer whose work is entirely different from another, though not necessarily more like your own—a difference that will remind you of how many rooms there are in the house of art.”
Francine Prose, Reading Like a Writer: A Guide for People Who Love Books and for Those Who Want to Write Them

“I've been homesick for countries I've never been, and longed to be where I couldn't be.”
John Cheever

“My mouth is a fire escape.
The words coming out
don’t care that they are naked.
There is something burning in there.”
Andrea Gibson, The Madness Vase

“I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naïve or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.”
Anaïs Nin
