Marie Sexton, on her blog, has started a new thingy. Every saturday (on the weeks she remembers – this is a woman I can relate to) she’ll post a line from a snarky character, and invite other authors to do the same.
So, hey, I have snarky characters galore! I’m joining in the fun. To see who else joined in the fun, check out Marie’s blog.
My line is from 18% Gray and it’s (of course) Matt’s line. This is after a fight scene, where Matt and James have vanquished the bad dudes, and then Benigna appears on the scene to have a fit about something, just because she’s so damn good at it:
Her mouth snapped shut, her hands flew to her hips and her eyes blazed. “I’m the damsel! Me! I’m the damsel, dammit! Not you! Or you! And I told you enough times already – call me Beni!”
Matt’s view was partially blocked by James, and James was dazed and distracted by Benig- Beni. That’s how the third soldier was able to grab her so easily and press that DEW against her head.
“Now she’s the damsel,” Matt said quietly in [James’s] ear.
Where can you buy this lovely book? Why at Dreamspinner, of course! 🙂
