I've just uploaded my third volume of quotations on Amazon. Should be live tomorrow sometime. On Monday I'll upload same to the online venues of Barnes & Noble and Kobo.
I'm the quote queen to my CPs. I find the wisdom of these words to be timeless, wonderful. Inspirational. They help me be a better person. They help me be a better author.
Have you ever considered using quotes to develop a theme for your next novel? Or as writing prompts? Each volume is about one hundred pages long with at least ten entries per page, so one thousand possible ways to stir our imagination in just one of these three offerings. I know when I read my collections, I find lines that push buttons, raise my ire. Stuff I could devote 90K words of conflict to.
Volume Four is underway already. I find memorable sayings in movies, books, songs, conversations, the Bible. They are to be found everywhere. It's a rare day when I don't add a great thought to my next volume in progress.
