Disclaimer: Just to clarify. The authors and their characters did not actually say any of these things in regards to my book.
As a human being I have a lot of people that I look up to. And since I’m a writer, many of these people happen to be very well known authors. I thought it’d be fun to think of some things that they might say should Kyle Demore and the Timekeeper’s Key ever be brought to their attention. These quotes are of course completely made up and for the purpose of this post they should be treated as though they themselves are fictional characters.
To really hammer in the fictitiousness of this whole ordeal, I also thought it’d be fun to insert quotes from characters that were created by these heroes of mine and mix them in with the main character of my book.
