One-Liner Wednesday: The Ultimate Snob


The incomparable Marta Pelrine Bacon (not the subject of this post’s title) is serializing her current novel, The Princess Detective, on Patreon. I highly recommend becoming a patron, not only for the juicy, delicious bits of prose, but also because patrons receive the most beautiful and delightful artwork from Marta at regular intervals.

Today’s one-liner is from Chapter 13 of The Princess Detective, describing the bearing of one of the aristocrats in the queendom:

Veroncia held her head high as haughty as anyone could look and not collapse from the weight of themselves.




I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    That’s very good. I don’t really understand how Patreon works. It’s been mentioned by a couple of people over a long time. I guess I should give it a closer look.
