Plz for to hlp!  

I am, as I have mentioned, redesigning cemurphy.net. I’ve got it nearly done, but I thought I’d put up random quotes from my books as part of the design.

So here’s where I need your help: anybody who wants to give me a favorite quote from one of my books (you can cite page and line if you think it’s spoilish, and I’ll do the rest), please post it in comments! No more than about 200 words, I think. Plz for to help! :)

Man, we’re watching the original Die Hard movie, and 20 years on, it’s really starting to look like a period piece. Smoking in the airports, no cell phones, big hair, big shoulderpads, lots of swearing, violence that’s not painfully graphic…and a young Alan Rickman. Raar. :) Ok, that’s not so much a period piece, that last bit, but still. :)

From Urban Shaman
the "badly rhyming nonsense" on pg 93 (the stuff in italics).

Anything referencing Billy Holiday, especially when he's first introduced (nailpolish, the terrible name, Seattle's only cross dressing detective, etc).

"Friends don't threaten friends' distributor caps"

I come up with some none Urban Shaman ones later, but that's what was on the bookcase beside me :D

Ah, yes, the young Alan Rickman. He and Morgan Freeman were the only things to save Prince of Thieves.

Just saw Bottle Shock with him as a wineshop owner in France. His French has such an English tone to it.

Smoking in the airports? Sure... but also his GUN hanging out there in the airplane. "Don't worry man, I'm a copy." Hell yeah. :)

Yeah. *laughs* I was just too lazy to type that. My husband, however, commented at length at that bit. :)

Erk... I meant "cop" obviously. But yes. :)

Is this the website equivalent of your hair disorder thingy? :)

*laughs* The redesign or the quote thing? The redesign is, yes. :) Although really the reason for it is the site's been in two different formats for most of the last year and I've never been real happy with the WordPress version of it (it was not as good a content manager as I hoped), and with things looking more and more likely for Chance coming out, I really wanted a sleeker new design and to have all my ducks in a row in hopes of oncoming traffic there.

I finished rereading Urban Shaman, so I can't recall any quote (meds, don't ask), but as I go through Thunderbird Falls and Coyote Dreams, I'll keep my eyes open for some great quotes.
But I agree, most of what Billy Holliday says is quote-worthy.
