Free Book Friday: Life


1. There are at least two people in this world that you would die for.

2. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.

3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be
just like you.

4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don’t like

5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.

6. You mean the world to someone.

7. You are special and unique.

8. Someone that you don’t even know exists loves you.

9. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.

10. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take another look.

Pretty true, don’t you think? What would you add to the list?

Drop me a note and let me know to be in the running for one of five prizes (five winners!) this weekend! (Note: These are more books from the RWA goody room, and they are UNautographed books.) The prizes are four books (Bite Me If You Can by Lynsay Sands, The Leopard Prince by Elizabeth Hoyt, Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Wells, and a Secrets anthology with Cynthia Eden, Leigh Court, Saskia Walker, and Jane Thompson) and another copy of Suzanne Brockmann’s Extras for Writers: Going Deep with POV.

I’m off to Lexington, Kentucky to give a speech for Kentucky Romance Writers. Have a great weekend!


  1. Kimmy says:

    1. No act of kindness, no matter how small it is never wasted.
    2. Love doesn’t make your world go round, your love is what makes the ride worthwhile.
    3. Dreams nourish your soul, just as food nourishes your body.
    4. The greatest happiness of life is that you are loved.
    5. When you fall, get up and try again.
    6. Just when you think nothing else can go wrong, something finally happens to go right.

    I hope this is right. I would so love to win Elizabeth Hoyt’s book.

  2. Bonnie Ferguson says:

    Those are all fabulous!!! Kimmy’s are great too. :mrgreen: I’ve always like this quote from Henry Ford: If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.

    Count me in for the drawing! :elephant:

  3. Shari C says:

    Great sayings and quotes.

    These are some I also like:
    1) The nicest thing about the future is that it always starts tomorrow.
    2) Aspire to inspire before you expire.
    3) The smallest good deed is better than the grandest intention.

    Wishing everyone a happy and safe week-end.

  4. Kim says:

    Great lists from everyone!

    Count me in for the drawing, Suzanne, and I hope your speech goes well. ๐Ÿ™‚


  5. Tammy G. says:

    I’ve always loved this saying: :love:

    “If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they’re yours; if they don’t they never were.”

    Suzanne, Count me in for the drawing! I wish everyone a wonderful weekend! :purr:

  6. Crystal B. says:

    Great sayings and quotes. Have a safe trip.
    Please enter me in the draw. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Alice Audrey says:

    I tend to go more for a different kind of quote, like Eddison’s “I haven’t failed. I found 10,000 ways that didn’t work.”

    Count me in for Bite Me If You Can and/or Extras For Writers: Going Deep with POV.

  8. Angie T says:

    Two of my favorites are:

    Each day is filled with pitfalls and opportunities. Our job is to avoid the pitfalls, seize the opportunities and be home by six o’clock.
    Experience is the hardest kind of teacher. It gives you the test first and the lesson afterward.

  9. catslady says:

    I’m quoting Erma Bombeck:

    Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the ‘Titanic’ who waved off the dessert cart.

    Good luck on your speech.

  14. Minna says:

    “Every cloud has a silver lining.”

  15. Toni Anderson says:

  16. Toni Anderson says:

    I’d kill for that Suz Brockmann book :rambo:

  19. Teresa W. says:

    Enjoyed your list today! So happy to be back my computer was down for awhile. :hissyfit:

  20. Brandy says:

    “If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun”: Katherine Hepburn.
    Another I like, but not exactly inspirational, “Well behaved women rarely make history”. And I don’t know who to credit that one with.

    Have a fabulous time at the Kentucky Romance Writers.

  21. KimW says:

    The only things in life you regret, are the risks that you didn’t take.

    Love is not a matter of counting the years…
    But making the years count.

    Only love let’s us see normal things
    In an extraordinary way.

    Good luck with your speech!

  22. Marylin says:

    I like this one a lot and has been my guiding thought for years:

    If you don’t like something, change it. If you canโ€™t change it, change your attitude. -Maya Angelou

  23. Kathleen says:

    The road to success is always under construction.

    Hugs are the perfect gift. One size fits all!

  24. TeresaH says:

    There is no happiness for people at the expense of other people.
