Reading Theme ~ March 2017.

Last year, I went springtime crazy.

This year I promised myself not to do that. And while strolling through the many, many books on my TBR lists, I thought about touching on a spring cleaning theme because I have a lot of series where I’ve only read a book or two and I need to finish them out.

No, I promise not to go there…
I could focus on the color green, since it is March and doesn’t touch on spring with a word. (Not that much green on book covers, I’ve noticed.)

Or I could read stories about Leprachauns, Lions, and Lambs.

I’m not  a small child and I’ve read the Twilight series plenty of times already.

Then, during the Super Bowl, it hit me. I have a little obsession about Quarterbacks and Tight Ends…and I promise I’m only sticking to football player positions here. I think it was because I was writing on book 4 of my series, Human Touch. One of the MC’s is a quarterback and one of the others is a tight end…while googling for football college info, I realized that my footballers would be starting up spring training on their college team right about…oh…like today. If they were real students at A&M…

Anyway, since I own this random, odd collection of books (mostly romances, mostly on my kindle) (okay, all of them are on my kindle) concerning football players, I thought why not.

Books to tackle this month:

All the Glory by Elle Casey

I am currently almost at the end of this one…just waiting to see if my guess is right.

After the Rain by Mary J Williams

Off Sides by Sawyer Bennett

Long by BB Hamel

Risky Game by Tracy Solheim

Draw Play by Tia Lewis

Sweet Rome series by Tillie Cole

Seems like I’m running back to my old ways of romances only, doesn’t it?

Again, a weakness of mine, since my footballers rest in my mind, heart, and soul since their inception in 2012.

In a way, I kept my theme away from spring, since football is more a late summer/fall/winter sport.
In another, I totally did not keep “spring” from springing up. Ahhh, well…

This month’s theme:

March 2017
Spring Training

What are you all looking at reading this month?

The Writing Resolutes ~ February Check-In

Well, so far so good this year. Yesterday, I completed a second draft of book four (Me & Johnny) of the series I’ve been writing, Human Touch.

Not Human Torch, nor is it Johnny Storm related, purely coincidental…

I somewhat apologize for my ridiculous puns.

Not really.

Anyway, I am so happy it’s complete. Then someone was so kind to print, comment, make notes, and check edits of the newest, best, and last edition of Human Touch (which I swear auto-correct on the new laptop is worse than auto-correct on my old laptop). I finished that out yesterday, too. Two stories done, ish. Still waiting for others to comment or notate on that one, because I might have missed something else or I like to have a consensus…

The problem I have is what to do with it once the final/final is done. Wattpad always sits in my head as one of the top options. Self-pub? Maybe. I’ve also been considering doing podcasts with it…as in the whole freaking series! (Over nine books either written or planned at this point.) Something along the lines of Welcome to Nightvale! But, those microphones can be expensive. And I’ll have to find a place to record along with people to play the parts. That last one would be the easiest thing to accomplish on that short list.

On the agent front, Love, Darrows is still with an agent. Not sure if I should poke and prod for info there or not. I don’t want to be pushy, but at the same time, it’s been months since she’s responded to me…

Sync or Swim is being edited and prepped to send to an agent who has said they wanted my next contemporary LGBTQ book…so fingers crossed that I get it done and off soon.

In the meantime, I am always searching (BIG THANKS TO kiTT FOR POINTING OUT PUB OPPORTUNITIES) for the next submission…

So far this year, I might not have gotten my foot in the door yet, but I feel like I am getting stories done. Which is always a good thing to someone in the authoring process. IMO.
