Does it need to be New Year’s to have a new goal?

*blows the dust off this blog*

It’s been a long while since I’ve been here. Goodreads took of the cross posting ability, so my book reviews have been staying there and not carrying over. I just figured out today, like literally ten minutes ago, how to make it publish here with the click of a button…Yay me! Finally!

This baby coming back to life!!! I’ve been down and out for a while thanks to allergies and immunity problems and real life things like work.
In that time, I’ve written three books, though I think most people only know about one of them–the fifth book to the Human Touch series–the other two are undisclosed rom-coms not ready to see the light of day yet. Of course some of it still needs to be transcribed from my journal nonsense since writing at work requires pen and paper. I’ve mapped out three other stories, one related to Human Touch, one rom-com involving Chris Evans’ Porn-Cop-Mustache (don’t ask), and one space-superhero-epic tale…I’ve also been looking into self-publishing my rom-coms and Love, Darrows, the LGBTQ retelling of Cupid where he has a boyfriend instead of that Psyche chick.

SO my new goal:

(As you can see, my love for Cap hasn’t waned. At least not until the beautiful soul known as Chris Evans stops being Cap. Then I’ll try.)

It’s not a squad goal, though I’d love to involve my squads–both IRL and online.

The goal is to get back into reading and reviewing here. To keep writing. To post some stories here. To keep this baby from accumulating dust again. And to quit getting these phantom followers on this blog and finding some real blog readers to interact with. Am I going to be on Twitter more? Probably not. It’s a storm of brimstone and fire there lately. Am I staying on Instagram? Hell yes. Because I love photo’ing (life, books, Pop! figures, dogs, cats…you name it) as much as I love writing. Will I be other places? IDK yet. I need to get this baby back in order and go from there. Baby steps in social media before taking a leap into self-publishing and social media. All while still trying to get an agent and that publishing deal for a book and working at getting promoted at real-life-work. We’ll see how this thing goes.

So, I’m saying it here first!

I’M BACK!!!

Yes, still love Han Solo, too…SOLO the movie…I should do a post about it!

Reading Theme ~ May 2017.

April showers give way to clear skies.
Long days with not as hot temps means spending evenings outside, stargazing.

Stargazing leads to wondering. (at least for the story writer in me.)

Then the ponderance of those age-old questions:

What’s out there in our universe? What’s out there beyond?

Do aliens exist?

If they do, would they be friendly?

Or are they out to off us for whatever agenda they have?

What would it be like to travel from planet to planet throughout the universes?

For someone who swears she doesn’t read sci-fi (Exceptions: Illuminae & Gemina), I have seemed to amass quite the collection of sci-fi books. Star Wars, alien abductions, UFO sightings, and a princess to name just a few. So I am going to try to take down my TBR list by tackling the most popular theme I have to be read.

Of course. Star-Lord and Han are essential to sci-fi goodness.

I’m thinking of starting with the X-Files books. After all, the show I loved in the early 90s started off with Fox Mulder searching for his missing sister after her abduction by aliens. And since I plan to read the believer, I also have to add in the skeptic, aka Scully’s book.

The X-Files ~ Agent of Chaos by Kami Garcia

The X-Files ~ Devil’s Advocate by Jonathon Mayberry

And you can’t do aliens without a little weird to go into it, so:

Welcome to Night Vale by Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor

And no space theme is complete without a STAR WARS book or two:

Lost Stars by Claudia Gray

The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher
(forever my Princess/General)

And then, a few series starters that I hope are great enough to want to read on:

The Taking by Kimberly Derting

Extracted by RR Haywood

And just because both the cover and the title fit, I’m going to try to squeeze in:

From A Distant Star by Karen McQuestion

Quite a full list for someone who claims not to read sci-fi…

May’s Theme:

The Stars in the Sky

(which also happens to be the title of the book I’m writing and not talking too much about yet.)

Any books I should look into or a great one I’ve missed?

And though I’ve read and reviewed them, I still highly recommend:

Illuminae/Gemina by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

The Host by Stephenie Meyer

DJ, signing off. Hoping to catch you from another system.

Reading Theme – May 2016.

It wasn’t that difficult to decide on a theme for this month. There was always the option of celebrating May the Fourth be with you. Another easy out would be Captain America: Civil War as it comes out in a few days…May 5th for early viewings, May 6th wide in the US (Canada, I think, too.). There’s always another spring pun in the works, but three in a row(Spring into Summer)? Umm…no. So many themes, I was about to resort to making a theme rule for my themes, which is how this TBR project got started.

But then it dawned on me…”Maestro!”

(the 80s-ness of this video…LOL)

MayDay! I need a hero.

Han Solo…

Captain America…

or even Agent Carter.

(Yes, the forever-ship rears its head again.)

This month, I will be tackling stories with a hero–fiction and non, graphic novels and normal ones.

There are so many reading options on my TBR list for May:

Waiting for Clark by Annabeth Albert ~ LGBT rom/com with comic con and superhero cosplays

Fallout (Lois Lane) by Gwenda Bond ~ The life and times of Lois Lane before the Super Man.
(I actually started a few days ago when last month’s TBR list was completed…and I think I’m falling back into my old forever ship with this one.)

Agent Carter: Season One Declassified by Sarah Rodriguez ~ A beautiful book covering one of the best heroes (heroines) in the Marvel Universe, IMO.

Rocket Racoon Vol.2 ~ just because I adore Rocket and Groot.

I Am Princess X by Cherie Priest ~ a mix between a graphic novel and a classic novel all in purple ink.

Zodiac Legacy – Convergence by Stan Lee/Stuart Moore/Andie Tong ~ What I am hoping is like a YA X-Men meets Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. story

And hopefully I’ll get my hands on:

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War: The Art of the Movie

Will I find my hero?

I’m definitely going to try…

What’s on your reading list for May [2016]?
