Do you have months where you feel as if your head is spinning? Like no matter how hard you try, life is simply getting away from you? April felt like that.
We started the month on vacation in Arizona and California. We got home at 10pm on a Tuesday night and jumped right back into the "regular" schedule Wednesday morning. It's been weeks and I'm barely keeping up with everything -- except the laundry. I have gotten the laundry done.
Another less than stellar reading month. I have several books that are in-progress. I will report on them, even if I do not finish them, in May. Because my time is so limited, I do not finish everything I start. I think you should know that, considering I'm telling you about a book that I liked, but didn't love enough to finish.

I got some reading done in March -- probably because I spent a three weeks of it sick. The sinus infection from H.E.L.L. is what I had. But who cares? Right? That's not why you're here. Let's get to the books!
The Soul Summoner series is one I recommend to anyone who likes angels and demons plus a dose of romance with some magical realism tossed in. This series is, quite honestly, wonderful and on the sweeter side. Barely ever a bad word and lots of patches (it makes sense if you read the stories).
Am I sad to see the series end? Yes, but I'm also really interested in the new stories Elicia has coming soon. This was a good read -- like I got annoyed when I had to put it down and do something in real life, like make dinner or help my kids. It is, more importantly, a solid ending to a series. One that leaves you MOSTLY satisfied.
Ok, I'll be honest, I really want a series following the character of Fury now -- and, yes, I have put that request in with Elicia!
FYI: in hunting the links for Austenland down I learned there is a second book in the series: Midnight in Austenland. I'm going to have to get my hands on a copy of this story pronto!
That's it for March 2018. This month has been a doozy health-wise but great for me reading-wise (and to an extent writing -- at least in terms of planning stuff).

I've started a little side business called FRANK FORMATTING which formats print and ebooks using Vellum. It's a service for new author who can't afford Vellum's price tag and PC based authors who don't want to switch to Mac.
In addition to the actual formatting service, I have videos on the site showing people my tips and tricks for using Vellum to improve book production. Some are absolutely awesome--like Store Links vs Web Links. Some are simply neat and efficient--like Front and Back Matter.
If you're an author who uses Vellum or is considering using Vellum, I highly recommend you check out the videos to see what Vellum can do for you. If you want to hire me, that's an option too.
