Another Round of the Quotes Game

Once upon a time, I made a little blog post where I put one quote from each of my books, both released and unreleased. I enjoyed it. Did I ever! Let's do it again.

Here is one quote from every single book I have written since 2009, both published and yet-to-be-released.

"Mark my words, the ever-night is coming, and when it does, you'll be glad you've got some wild nutters at your side." --Cakey, Shadows of Tockland


"It’s a miserable thing to be helpful—to be needed, to be essential—and someone can’t see it." --Aleas, Bloodstone, Deep Water: Book One


"There is a heaviness in me now, like something coiled around my intestines. I hope to make it go away. I don’t want to feel like this anymore. I don’t want to be the person I have become." --Jeren, A Whisper in the Void, Deep Water: Book Two


"You’ve lived in the shadow of this Garden all your life. And you had no idea what was here. None of you did, not even the caretakers. This will be to our everlasting shame. While we lived outside the wall in the dirt, we had everything we could ever need in here.” --Adhi, Garden of Dust and Thorns


"If you hold on, we will live. If you let go, we will go down, down, down. Do you understand how important it is for you to hold on?" --Ekir, Children of the Mechanism (Coming in February 2014)

“I never want an explanation for any of this. Never. I don’t know what you did. I don’t care what you did. The whole world has gone crazy, and I don’t want to know anything." --Kristen, Mary of the Aether


"I’ve been selfish. I see that now. I wanted a happy little life, but I was entrusted with this power by people who loved me. I’ve wasted so much time whining when I should have been learning." --Mary, Mary of Shadows


"Quick to violence, paranoid, cruel, all of you, all of you! How dare you! Don’t you know who I am? Don’t you know what I’ve tried to become? How dare you!" --Mary, Mary of Starlight (Coming in April 2014)
"The world will burn out like a torch, but the light will shine brightly, and I will rise like the brightest ember into the stars at the end." --Somebody, Mary of Cosmos (coming in November 2014)


  1. Hello — do you have review copies of your books available? I'm looking for fantasy to review on my blog, and I read the preview of Bloodstone on Amazon, and I'd be glad to read and review if you're interested. No strings attached — I'm not asking to "trade" reviews since I think Amazon doles out lashes now when they see that happen. Let me know if you're interested and I can send you a link to the blog and some other reviews. Cheers, Eric

    1. Yes, I would be interested in that. E-mail me at jeffaaronmiller (at) yahoo (dot) com and let me know the address to send the review copy to.
