Random Lines from HIS ORDINARY LIFE

Saw someone else do this while paging through the first lines posted at the Samhain Cafe (oh, my heavens, they were good -- by the way, I bought books). Thought it would make a fun little Friday post.

Eleven pretty random lines from His Ordinary Life (coming September 11).

1) Her son wasn’t supposed to turn into Rosemary’s baby overnight, either.

2) Years ago, room 704 had been D-2, lair of the crustiest, most crotchety English teacher to ever draw breath in the state of Georgia, Mrs. Evelyn Adkins.

3) Cold showers were a joke. Arms braced on the counter, head lowered, he concentrated on stifling the unfulfilled desire. Amortization schedules. The cost of new tires for his car. Batting averages for last year’s Braves.

4) They were alone in the deepest hours of the night and she wanted nothing more than to pull him off to bed just once more.

5) “I want you back.”

6) When Del found him, that someone was going to be one dead son of a bitch.

7) He was going to die from the expectancy, but, Lord, what a way to spend his last moments.

8) “What is that on your neck?” With two fingers, Tick pushed Del’s chin up as she entered the room. A slow grin spread over Tick’s face.
“Would you quit?” Del shoved his brother’s hand away with an irritable shrug.

9) “A stupid sick bastard.” Cookie joined them, holding aloft an evidence bag. “Don’t people watch those true crime shows?”

10) “Come hold me for a while.”

11) “It’s raining, and every damn time it rains, she’s in my head again. I’m tired of thinking about her. I’m tired of hurting. I figure if I find enough to do, I’ll forget.”

LOL, J. I kinda/sorta figured that out. It sounded like you.

Thanks, B.E. I love this book and I'm really excited about the release coming up.
