Best Line Ever

I’ve been very lucky so far that the majority of Dying Is My Business reviews have been strongly positive. But this review is one of my favorites, if only because of this particular bit:

A cross between Harry Dresden and Seely Booth, Trent is the perfect Urban Fantasy protagonist. He is masculine without being a pig.

Ha! I don’t know why that tickles me so much, it just does. I feel like it would make a great slogan for a company: “Old Spice body wash. Be masculine without being a pig.” Or “Gillette Fusion ProGlide Shave Gel. Be masculine without being a pig.” (I’d suggest making up “Masculine without being a pig” t-shirts to sell at conventions, but the news coming out of some of them recently tells me they wouldn’t be accurate.)

Anyway, thanks to reviewer Zeenat, whoever you are, for the best line in a review ever!

    Ha ha! I wonder if it’ll catch on. On a meme.

    Thank you for writing such a fantastic book. It was one of my favorites from this past year. I hope there is a sequel!

      Thanks for your kind words! The sequel should be out in the fall of 2014. I’m currently working on the third and final (maybe) book in the series. I hope you enjoy them as much as you did the first!
