So long, and thanks for all the Quotes!

It's been a fun experiment, and I would like to thank all the folks who have contributed favorite KidLit quotes. But I haven't acquired enough quotes to keep things rolling here, and don't have time to dig for more myself on a regular basis.

Besides, it has taken me till now to discover I've been re-inventing the wheel. So if you are hooked on a daily quote from KidLit, head on over to:

Children's Book Quote of the Day

and enjoy! I will leave the blog online here for a while so people can find that link.

As for me, I am into high gear with promoting my children's picture book, The Ravens of Farne: A Tale of Saint Cuthbert due out this month.

And I am also very busy with the editing process of my YA historical novel, Bearing the Saint. That one is coming out in July, but meanwhile you can read about All Things Saint Cuthbert at my other blog, HALIWERFOLC. Hope to see you there!

But if you really looked, Rhan thought. If you looked beyond the powers and the villains and the plots to take over the universe. There was just a guy. Somebody who was alone, who'd been cut off from other people by disaster or birth. There was just a guy who wanted so bad to make things right.

-- Diana Wieler, Ran Van the Defender

"Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?"

 an Anti-Valentine quote:

A.A. Milne - The House at Pooh Corner
"What did you say it was?" he asked.
"Ah!" said Eeyore.
"He's just come," explained Piglet.
"Ah!" said Eeyore again.
He thought for a long time and then said:
"When is he going?"

This is the opening line to Stormbreaker, the first novel in the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz:

"When the doorbell rings at three in the morning, it's never good news."

I totally agree!--  Sherrie Petersen
