Welcome Wednesdays – One-Liners

Welcome Wednesdays – One-Liners

Welcome to this week’s edition of Welcome Wednesdays!

This morning I’m asking all you authors to share your favorite sentence or two from one of your books.  It can be funny, it can be emotional, it can be a single exquisitely-crafted sentence that captures the essence of one of your characters – anything you like!

I’ll begin.  This one is from DREAM STUDENT, and it’s one of my favorite lines from any of the books.  Sara has just woken up with the mother of all hangovers:

“I need aspirin.  And then I need to vomit.  And then I need to die.  That might be the wrong order.”


And now it’s your turn!  Be sure to tell us a little about the book, and set up your sentence (if necessary).  Also be sure to include a link so we can find your book!

(and when you’re done here, please stop by Exquisite Quills, where there are daily memes just like this one and plenty of fantastic authors you can discover!)

  1. Happy Wednesday, James. It’s good to stop by.

    Here is a favorite bit of from The First Ladies Club: http://tinyurl.com/pj365j4

    …, Scott came into the kitchen and wrapped his arms around (his wife), taking solace and
    drawing strength from the physical contact.
    “What’s the matter, Scott?” she pulled back, looking
    with concern into his eyes.
    “Nothing, really. I just missed you today. Guess I’ve
    been dipping my toes into the slough of despond. You are my
    restful arbor, my love.”

  2. It’s not Wednesday anymore. Can I still post? Just found this!

    This is from my WIP, Heartsick:

    “It’s about the heart.” He slammed his fist against his chest. “You can follow all of the rules, and still end up with a guy like me, because, deep down, your heart is as sick as the rest of us. Whereas, I can break all of the rules and suffer, but be given a second chance with a girl like you, because, inside of me, I want to be healed.”
