Greetings, Kittens!

Today I'd like to share with you a bit from Marie Sexton, author of the Coda Books; Promises, A to Z, The Promise, The Letter Z, Strawberries for Dessert, and the newly released Putting out Fires. Rather than an excerpt or interview questions, (and those may yet be coming), Marie has shared 13 of her favorite lines from the Coda Series. Marie is giving away a choice of ebook from her backlist so be sure to leave a comment to be entered to win!Enjoy.


Thirteen of my favorite Coda lines (I cheated and snuck one in from my April release,
Paris A to Z):

1. “Rub some dirt on it.”

2. “What the fuck ever.”

3. “No self-respecting Coloradoan would date a Chiefs fan.”

4. “Did you get that out of the Masochist Biking Club handbook?"

5. “Seriously, the guy doesn’t know The Legend of Billie Jean from Legends of the Fall.”

6. “Because it’s sentimental crap, or because nothing gets blown up?”

7. “Violence and mayhem. Nothing better.”

8. “All-you-can-eat bacon really is preferable to eternal salvation, isn’t it?”

9. “I have an Armani hidden underneath [these clothes]. I was planning a Superman-style change of wardrobe in the car.”

10. “Get me some eyeliner and a little hair gel and I’ll look like Adam Lambert for you.”

11. “Do you have a strange fruit fetish I don’t know about?”

12. “There’s only one solution. Somebody at this table is going to have to sleep with Matt.”

13. “A blow job’s more of a birthday thing.”

The Coda Series (published by Dreamspinner Press) is:
A to Z
The Letter Z
Strawberries for Dessert
Putting Out Fires
Paris A to Z (coming April 2011)

The books don’t necessarily have to be read in order. For a rather wordy explanation of
what comes when, you can look here. (http://mariesexton.net/book-list-and-timeline)

I also have a short story published with Silver Publishing called One More Soldier.

All books can be found on Amazon here. (http://tiny.cc/mgps6)

Marie Sexton lives in Colorado. She’s a fan of just about anything that involves muscular young men piling on top of each other. In particular, she loves the Denver Broncos and enjoys going to the games with her husband. Her imaginary friends often tag along. Marie has one daughter, two cats, and one dog, all of whom seem bent on destroying what remains of her sanity. She loves them anyway.

Visit Marie’s website at http://mariesexton.net/, follow her on Facebook and Twitter, join her mailing list, and absolutely don’t forget to check out her tumblr. (Tumblr NOT work safe.) And there’s always her email.

I absolutely loved Strawberries for dessert. Those quotes reminded me that I need to read the others...
Great selection.

Glad you loved Strawberries, I haven't gotten there yet. I'm at the beginning on Promises. Can't wait to catch up!

Re: T13
The Legend of Billie Jean: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089470/
Kind of fun. Haven't seen it in years. Nothing at all like Legends of the Fall. ;-)
Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, dear...
I've uttered line #2 more than a few times... LOL!

Re: Oh, dear...
It's just been that kind of week+ for me under deadline. I could deeply sympathize--and I don't normally swear:)

Feb. 17th, 2011 03:20 pm (UTC)
She really picked some great one. I can't wait to read them all in context!

All lines are great, but line #4 is really funny:P

Love them
Those are some great lines. My favorite is #12 and I have done #9 so many times I could be Supergirl. Oh and the answer to #8 is yes. There is nothing better than all you can eat bacon!

Re: Love them
Yummmmm..... bacon..... :-)

Lmao. This one is my favorite: “There’s only one solution. Somebody at this table is going to have to sleep with Matt.” :P

I've only read Promises and A to Z but I loved them both and now I can't wait to read The Letter Z to revisit them.

Oh, and congrats on your new release! :D

Feb. 17th, 2011 04:30 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much!
If you're interested (and haven't seen it already) there is a free short story on my website that's a follow-up to Promises. It's here: http://mariesexton.net/book-list-and-timeline/promises/short-story-the-promise
Thanks again!

Okay... after drolling over the cover pic for a while, I finally got to the list and then I didn't want to stop. I'm in love!

Thanks for posting! Happy TT.

I know, right? Makes you want to dive in to see where the lines come from. I can't wait to have some downtime to start reading.

Legend of Billie Jean... Why do I suddenly feel old?
Feb. 17th, 2011 06:32 pm (UTC)
I know, right? Me too!

BTW, Xakara -- I did not realize you were a displaced Wisconsinite. At least modern technology makes it easier to follow what's going on up here from afar!
Feb. 17th, 2011 05:46 pm (UTC)
Yep, born and raised in Milwaukee. I'm sorry to be so far away with so much going on, but I freely admit to not missing a thing when snowmeggedon happened and I was in New Mexico.
