Jess C. Scott
“Friends are the family you choose (~ Nin/Ithilnin, Elven rogue).”
Jess C Scott, The Other Side of Life

B.M.B. Johnson
“Melody exploded. "THIS ISN'T LIKE GETTING A FISH TO SEE IF I COULD BE RESPONSIBLE ENOUGH FOR A PUPPY!" She took a deep breath, calmed herself and lowered her voice. She then repeated the statement as if doing so removed the stink of the outburst.

"I'm well aware of that," said Lonnie. "And not to poke it with a stick, but you don't see any puppies sniffing around that empty fish bowl, do you?”
B.M.B. Johnson, Melody Jackson v. the Woman in White

Jess C. Scott
“Anya looked upon Nin admirably. Having him as a partner-in-crime—if only on this one occasion, which she hoped would only be the start of something more—was more revitalizing than the cheap thrills of a cookie-cutter shallow, superficial romance, where the top priority was how beautiful a person was on the outside.”
Jess C Scott, The Other Side of Life

Kelley Armstrong
“I have to.
I've been fighting it all night. I'm going to lose. My battle is as futile as a woman feeling the first pangs of labor and deciding it's an inconvenient time to give birth. Nature wins out. It always does.”

Vicki Pettersson
“...lovers, even those who are married, always exist autonomously of one another, no matter how close they are or how long they've known each other. That's why jealously can flare in even the most intimate relationships.
Because you know that at some basic level this person exists separately from you. No mater how close you are, the landscape of their life is always tinted a different hue than your own." - Hunter to Joanna”
Vicki Pettersson, The Neon Graveyard

Kenya Wright
“One downside of living with a Were-cheetah is that he purrs when he’s happy. At times, the apartment vibrated
all day from MeShack’s enjoyment of life.”
Kenya Wright, Fire Baptized

E.J. Stevens
“Walking out into the night with a water fey was all kinds of stupid. Heck, Kelpies eat people. They may not play with their food as creatively as the Each Uisge, but dead is dead.”
E.J. Stevens, Shadow Sight

Vicki Pettersson
“But no life was without it's strain & strife, not if it was fully lived. Opening up to experience, even the good ones like trust & love, was to open yourself up to the pain. I suppose the key was to not compound matters by making the rest of it unnecessarily hard. My need for control had certainly done that in the past. So I made a promise to myself in that moment.
I would make a concerted effort to reach for what was soft & good in this world. I'd find a place to settle into, and hold still so that this world's good and soft could reach back & touch me as well.”
Vicki Pettersson, The Neon Graveyard

Ian Cadena
“Life's a witch and then you fly.”
Ian Cadena, Samhain

“What would become of me if I was never truly seen again?" - Joanna”
Vicki Pettersson, The Neon Graveyard

Rafael muttered something under his breath, throwing up his hands in surrender. “So what am I? What’s Karhl, Jayani, my brother, and all the BaSatai? Are we all freaks? Just
because this human has some kind of fascination with labeling you, you believe in it. Be your own person, Armani, not what someone else says you are.”

Bruce Jenvey
“Do I at least get to keep the toothbrush?”
“Sure. Unless you can get it back in that wrapper and seal it up all nice and new. Well, that’s what the last girl did. See,
you can hardly tell it’s been opened!”
--Reggie Sinclair from Angela's Coven”
Bruce Jenvey, Angela's Coven

“Armani froze to the spot, unable to move. Her breath tightened in her lungs, shivers of awareness ran down her spine, the sudden energy zipping through her body announcing the shimmer of recognition.”
Suzan Battah, BaSatai: Outside In # 1

“Armani halted, thinking twice about making her way over there, but she pushed forward not wanting to believe something was wrong. There was nothing worse than walking into a nightmare. And Armani just did. The air in her lungs seized when she saw her draped all over him. She blinked a few times, but Lily was still pressing her body all over Rafael.
Armani wanted to kill her, right then and there.”
Suzan Battah, BaSatai: Outside In # 1

Bill Blais, No Good Deed

“I squashed the little voice of doubt telling me I shouldn’t go back to the library. I couldn’t let my fear stop me from finding a way to save everyone I loved.”
Tabi Slick, Tompkin's School: For The Resurrected

Tabi Slick
“Just what I needed. Another problem to fix. As if Izzy not understanding that resurrecting Credan was the worst idea ever wasn’t bad enough? How could she not realize this?”
Tabi Slick, Tompkin's School: For The Resurrected

Tabi Slick
“My throat tightened as I choked back a sob. I didn’t want to let this part of me in. The part of me that realized I was a monster and that maybe I was too far gone to be saved.”
Tabi Slick, Tompkin's School: For The Resurrected

R.A. Steffan
“I guess you can let me know at the same time whether I’ll be needing to put an ad up for a new bartender.”

“Nah,” I told him. “I feel like I’ve really got a stake in this job, you know?”

He stared at me for a long moment. “Someday,” he said, “I’ll figure out who started the thing with the bad vampire jokes, and fire them.”
R.A. Steffan, Vampire Bound: Book One

Cleo Rozenfeld
“È come se Mary-Rose fosse in balia di un collegamento tra il nostro mondo e uno sconosciuto. Il tamburo maculato accompagna ogni passo, ogni pulsazione, quasi a indicare la forza vitale che trascende tra due sentieri: uno terreno, l’altro sensoriale, quasi si trovasse attraverso un intricato labirinto.”
Cleo Rozenfeld, La Stella
