The Strange Struggle With Broken World

My progress on Broken World (Apocalypticon 3) has been slow. I mean, it’s been absolutely glacial. I know that. And believe me, I’m more frustrated by that than you are.

Quotes by Clayton Smith  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“I’m hoping for a broadsword,” Patrick said, crossing his fingers. “We can go all Game of Thrones on Arkansas.” “I’ve always hated Arkansas,” Ben considered. “We all do, Ben. We all hate Arkansas.”
Clayton Smith, Apocalypticon

“Ben nudged him gently. “Don’t piss them off, they wield the God-force,” he whispered. “I don’t think you know how religion works,” Patrick whispered back.”
Clayton Smith, Apocalypticon

“waiting patiently for her to finish eating her coffee and drive it away into the night—out of Missouri, up through the plains, and into Saskatchewan, to Lenore’s place, where everything would be okay.”
Clayton Smith, Anomaly Flats
