Author's Favorite Quotes Steam/Clockworks and Science Fiction Fantasy, Frances Pauli

I wanted to include authors of books I've loved.  And what better way of including them then having quotes from the books?  A great way to introduce you to the books and share a bit from them.

Aaah, today I have Frances Pauli back with quotes from Dimensional Shift, that I have classified in my Top 5 Steam/Clockworks and Science Fiction Fantasy.  This book took me by surprise.  I loved I had NO IDEA where Frances would take the story next.  Or what would walk around the next corner.  Amazing to get to know the Dimensional Shift with Chloe, and meet her someone special. ;)

Dimensional Shift:
It is such a treat to be mentioned here on the blog. Melissa has not only supported my books over the years, but she’s giving me a chance today to go back and revisit one that I haven’t focused on in quite awhile. It was fun to dig back into the Shift Happens series to find some of my favorite lines, and it gave me some great ideas for book four! Thanks so much for everything you do on My World.

One of my favorite characters is Chloe’s kooky neighbor, Doreen, who frequently calls up to announce:

“There was a spaceship right over your house last night.”

*****

The next line is Chloe’s. Ever practical Chloe. Once she works out that the multi-dimensional job is for real, her first thoughts are for compensation:

Eaten by sea monsters was a job hazard she’d expect to be well paid for.

*****

At her orientation, Chloe meets Terrel, the gelatinous and multi-limbed klutz who is jealous of the humanoids’ ability to grow hair:

“I’d give half my limbs for hair like that.”

*****

And of all the dimensions and locations we visit in the Shift books, I think the Teringian Sulfur Spa is the one I’d most like to visit. There’s just something about the green, minty atmosphere:

She sniffed stupidly, considering she had no idea if she could breathe here, but failed to asphyxiate herself.

*****

Thankfully for Chloe and Drew, and assorted alien guests, the spas are non-toxic.
