Hello all! Thank you so much for joining me for my monthly author column here at Sinfully! So many books, so little time. A few weeks ago I decided I was going to do something about my ginormous reading list. I’d fallen behind on my reading and was missing it. And of course with every sale comes more books, because you can never have enough books.
So far in the month of October I’ve inhaled Mary Calmes’s Matter of Time series—now a top favorite—along with her Marshals series: All Kinds of Tied Down and Fit to Be Tied. Yep, also made the favorites. I re-read Dogwood Days by Poppy Dennison which I just love and is an absolute delight. I caught up with Rhys Ford’s Sinners series—another favorite—and read Sloe Ride. Now I’m reading Murder and Mayhem, and after that I plan to read Santino Hassell’s Stygian.
Now, I don’t know about you, but sometimes it’s tough figuring out what to read next. I stare at my Kindle as if one of the books might start waving, going “Pick me! Pick me!”. Then there are times when I’m in the mood for a certain genre, so maybe paranormal or fantasy. Reading every day feels fantastic and it’s helping me catch up to the many, many titles I hope to read.
Sometimes I’m incredibly late to the party where a certain book or series is concerned, but eventually I catch up. In order to get done as much as I do, I need a strict schedule. Everything is written down in my homemade planner. Disclaimer: Creating and decorating your own planner can get very addictive, especially when you start with the Washi tape. Oh my goodness, so much Washi tape! So everything gets jotted down in my planner, from my writing schedule, to my real life tasks, to my reading time. Then when I have a new release or blog tour coming up my planner screams for mercy. Every day there is a new to-do list, but some things are always on there, like READING TIME!
I couldn’t hope to keep up with the number of releases coming out each day, but I have my favorite auto-buy authors and then there are the books whose blurbs or covers really grip me. Then there’s the recommendations from friends or fellow authors.
How about you? How do you decide what to read next?
Between the Devil and the Pacific Blue
Released October 31st, 2015
Blurb: For the last six months, Detective James Ralston has worked the nightshift as security for the Pacific Blue Hotel, and every night at 2 a.m. his rounds lead him to the radio room where the handsome and mysterious Franklin Fairchild sits listening to waltzes as old as the hotel itself. James is drawn to Franklin, but Franklin is a man at the end of his rope, and James has no intention of getting caught up in whatever trouble Franklin is in. A heated encounter late one night sends James down a disturbing path and has him questioning everything around him, including his very sanity.
