Introductory Quotes for Novels

For Her Eyes Underwater, I included a quote by Isaac Newton at the start of the book. Unfortunately, this wasn’t in the very early copies of the book because I chose to add it later. Originally, I thought using another author’s quote at the start of my writing was cheap and basically using someone else’s words to tell my story. However, I began thinking about this and ended up changing my mind. Some quotes are timeless. They can be used in a way that doesn’t tell my story, but instead teases it. It sets a mood before my words take center stage.

So, I’ve decided to pick a quote (an old quote that is public domain) for each book in The Bowman Case Files series. Since the second book is in production and coming along faster than I thought it would, I have decided to release some teasers. I’m going to start small and will be sharing the quote that will appear at the start of book 2:

“Hope not ever to see Heaven. I have come to lead you to the other shore; into eternal darkness; into fire and into ice.”

Inferno (Dante Alighieri)

More teasers to follow…
