But truly, though, the greatest reward is knowing someone I've never met found some truth and beauty in my words. Tell your friends! That is how books stay in the world. Thank you, again. You made my day.(less)

“We do not choose whom we love...We can only choose how well.”
Martha Brockenbrough, The Game of Love and Death
tags: love

“Life is a temporary condition, Henry. And it's uncertain. That's why you have to seize chances when you find them. Pursue what you want. Take risks. Live, love...all of it. Every last one of us is going to die, but if we don't live as we truly want, if we're not with the one we want to be with, we're dead already.”
Martha Brockenbrough, The Game of Love and Death

“To be written into story. That was how even the lost lived on.”
Martha Brockenbrough, The Game of Love and Death

“A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.”
Steve Martin

“I don’t know a perfect person. I only know flawed people who are still worth loving.”
John Green

“To be written into story. That was how even the lost lived on.”
Martha Brockenbrough, The Game of Love and Death

“We do not choose whom we love...We can only choose how well.”
Martha Brockenbrough, The Game of Love and Death

“Why choose fear over love? In what world does that make sense?”

Mada, if you send me your mailing address, I will send you a signed bookplate with the stamp. I'll have to design one so it won't be instant. But I will do it!

Mada Can't wait to read Devine Intervention. It seems so funny and amazing and I loved the cover ever since I read the synopsis on Goodreads. Too bad I can get one with your special stamp from Book Depository :(.

Thank you, Jane! Nice to see you here, too! I hope you're having a delightful fall.


Lady Jane Hi, Martha! Miss Grammar Queen! Good to see you on Good Reads! Thanks for adding me here as well as on Linked In. You're so awesome, I love your posts, your articles, and I really need to buy that book of yours as well! The one titled "Things That Makes Us (Sic)." Before my grammar slips to the point of making YOU sic, I will end it here. :) Cheers and have a delightful afternoon, Madame!


Martha Miss Erin,

You have it...right? Let me know. If you don't, I can send.

Happy holidays!
