When I created the Tarthian Empire for my books, I also created laws, a history, and a culture for the people. Just as the quotes above represent many ideals of the American people, quotes of great leaders from the Tarthian Empire represent their world as well. I thought you might enjoy seeing a couple.
Destine Pietan (an immortal now known as Rheyn Destoiya) was an empress who unified more than a dozen planets under one rule. Her most famous quote is, “It has been true throughout history that a crossroads will always be fought for. Let us be known as the generation that put an end to territorial bickering. Let us be the generation of peace.”
Ran Holding (another immortal, now known as Luc Saint-Cyr) was a champion for sharecropper rights on the planet Mjuka. He also introduced breeding techniques for cattle, launching an entirely new industry. His most famous quote regards peace as well. “Poverty plagues every sharecropper farmer on Mjuka. When we go to bed at night, we pray not only for peace, or prosperity, we also pray for freedom from the tyranny of debt. Because only when we own our lands will we know the true meaning of either peace or prosperity.”
What are your favorite quotes? Post some, and tonight I’ll pick one at random and provide a download of my first two books, At the Mercy of Her Pleasure and For Women Only. Here are their blurbs.
If he tastes her passion, will he be at the mercy of her pleasure?
Senth must suppress his feral, non-human side to work beside a Better, an enhanced woman whose addictive pheromones could sever all his hard-won self control. He must resist her, because what if it's true about Betters, that just one taste of her passion, and he'll be at the mercy of her pleasure, forever?
For Women Only
Will she free his heart before his betrayal breaks hers?
To protect the remnants of his family, Khyff must overcome his hatred of the Kin long enough to seduce and betray their ambassador -- the one person among them with the power and will to mend his broken heart.
Remember, post your favorite quotes, whether about peace or simply words to live by, and I'll draw one name from among those who post!
