Welcome to A Time to Thrill. In this episode, I’m discussing epigraphs. I love them. For me, they signal an overall theme, foreshadowing, or even a cautionary tale.

The prequel novella in The Casey Cort Series is always free. Download it here.

The epigraphs:

(UCOL) Ransomed: “The fact that obscene conduct by males in the workplace and sexual harassment in our society generally has become the object of special opprobrium and public scorn does not turn the defendant’s outrageous conduct into a federal crime.” Judge Gilbert Merritt—August 14, 1997

(IPS) Caged: “Genuine tragedies in the world are not conflicts between right and wrong. They are conflicts between two rights.” ―Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

(COI) Unarmed: “Law is a revenue stream. Dead boys and girls are a cost of doing business.” Anonymous

“We have families too.” Reverend Emery Wilkinson

(TRTL) Kidnapped: Adoption is, in its perfect form, suppose[d] to be about finding homes for children that need them, not about finding children for parents that want them. ― Claudia Corrigan D’Arcy
