So I couldn’t decide where to place a new novel, timeline wise. So I just decided to write three. Novels. Three more. Because that helps. Possibly simultaneously. Will get back to you on that one.
In the meanwhile, since we’re getting settled in here, thought I would post up a few of my more interesting lines from the first of the works in progress, currently untitled.
- “There’s a rule or three that you must remember at all times about gambling. First, never put down what you aren’t prepared to lose. Second, luck is an illusion that prays on the weak. And of course, the most important – The house always wins.”
- “What if I’d reacted violently? You know, as criminals do.”
I finished shuffling the cards and put the deck flat on the table, considering her point. “Then I suppose I would have another one for the collection.”

- “Nobody really considers the pawnshop broker or the bartender as an actual human that retains information. You assume that they see and hear so much in the day to day that it’s impossible to collect anything relevant. You give them your secrets and your sins, you tell them the truth without question because at the end of the day you’re only seeing their position and not their purpose. But a man is a man and he will hear you regardless of your request to the contrary. As will a woman.”
- “Given enough time, the canary will approach the cat if for no other reason than to alleviate the boredom.”
