Dialogue Tags

 

My next book will be dedicated to Dialogue Tags. Some feel that the only dialogue tag you should use is ‘said’. I, however, feel differently. I am looking for some books to use as examples of various words listed below. If you have a sentence in your book for one of the words listed below, I would love for you to submit your line of dialogue to the form below the list.

If your dialogue from your book is selected, this will act as advertisement for your book, with a link to your store page. If you can put both your Amazon and Smashwords links (if applicitable). I plan to release a version of each, but can only have Amazon links for Amazon version, and same with Smashwords. I may still use your quote if you don’t have the other, but won’t link to your book in both versions.

Please submit for as many words as you have, but 1 submission per word. If I get enough submission, I may use multiple examples for each word.

thumbnailAbout a man who thinks he’s an alien and a psychiatrist to unlock the truth.

“The plot is an incredibly intriguing one, and it certainly picks up after a few revealing details.”

“It’s hard to say much without giving the story away but I can say that there are a few twists in the plot that you probably won’t expect.”

DL - T5 - Smashwords Cover miniRead the series that makes vampires a scary monster in the shadows once more, and the bravery of knights as the one weapon to stop their spread of a deadly disease.

[Author] writing is powerful and inspite of absence of gory descriptions, the fear factor exists. There is an aura of fear and valour at the same time.
