Happy 2018! I’m fashionably late to the party, as this is my first post for the TRS New Year’s Party. Oops!
I guess I’m just not all that ambitious this time of year. And no, I am not planning on changing that any time soon 🙂 I’m not one for resolutions, I figure if I want to change something, I can do it any time, I don’t have to wait for a new year. This time of year, I just kind of hunker down and focus, on my writing, on my hobbies, on myself. I also read. A lot.
Right now, I’m spending as much time as possible in fictional worlds, both the one I’m writing (I’m working on a book series, but gonna leave it at that for now) and in other worlds I enjoy. In addition to steamy romance, I am all about “geeky” pursuits and with this picture of my latest library haul, it really shows!
I’m a big GoT TV series fan, but I had never read the books mainly because I wasn’t sure I’d dig a fantasy novel (but I SO do) and because I found the length of the novels to be a big time commitment. Since the show isn’t returning until 2019 (grrr!) I figure this is as good a time as any to dig into these mondo books!
I also love YA, especially stories that depict not so perfect or popular teens. As for the non-fiction books in the pic, well, they’re just fun and maybe they’ll come in handy for some research 😉
How are you spending your first few days of 2018? Leave me a comment and let me know!
Ariel Storm believes that fantasies are meant to be explored, on the pages of her manuscripts, and beyond. Ariel fell in love with all things paranormal, magical and mystical at a young age. Her obsession with the dark, dangerous and forbidden began in her teen years as a way to rebel against her strict religious upbringing. Her stories can range from contemporary BDSM to new adult to paranormal. One thing will never change, and that’s writing scorching hot erotic romance with unconventionally sexy alpha heroes.
