Book Quote Wednesday, #BookQW


For Book Quote Wednesday, #BookQW my author friend Mindy Klasky @MindyKlasky sends out a word. We find that word in our book and Tweet the sentence/excerpt it's in. Today's word is IMMEDIATE. This is from my new bio novel, ELIZA JUMEL BURR. She became Aaron Burr's last wife. I believe he was the love of her life: "Mr. Burr is married. I have no immediate designs on him or becoming his missus.” I hadn’t thought that far ahead, even in my wildest fantasies.Purchase ELIZA on AmazonOriginal link
