Audiobook / LGBT book recap - August, September, Ocotber 2017

So here’s the news… I cancelled my AUDIBLE ACCOUNT. LIKE omg. Everytime I go on audible.com, they show me this sweet message:



I HAD BEEN A MEMBER SINCE 2014!!!!

But the OTHER news is that I still have about 15 audiobooks purchased in my library that I need to get through. So I cancelled my account, but I am going to renew it in 6 months. I just don’t want to pay 15.00 dollars a month when I have an extensive library.

I also haven’t updated my list of audiobooks since July.

So below is the list for Aug/Sept/Oct 2017 and about 60+ hours of audiobooks. September was pretty low b/c I was out of the country for 2.5 weeks and then I was playing catch up on ALL THE FESTS and MOD duties. Sigh.

Title Author Length My Grade/Rating Date Finished
Fitting In (Fitting In #1) Violet, Silvia 4.5 HOURS B 8/16/2017
Skin After Skin (PsyCop #8) Price, Jordan Castillo 15 HOURS A 8/29/2017

Again, as always, I'm just passing along free goodness. I get nothing from this. And they probably don't like it that I share it so much.

New Writing Challenge, YO. (Maybe some art too)

My prompt table for the [livejournal.com profile] newyearcntdown. I'm not sure how much I can incorporate / will participate in. I kind of hate Christmas traditions (and given I don't celebrate them b/c of my religious affiliations).

Pairings are all up in the air, I'm thinking some HD, of course, Merlin/Arthur, Charlie/Neville... any thoughts?

I'm not freaking out.

see: I'm freaking out

Date Title of Fest Status
11/6/2017 hd_erised Submitted
11/27/2017 Small Gifts - Remus/Sirius With Beta
12/5/2017 hoggywartyxmas First Draft is terrible
11/12/2017 hd_owlpost (3 gifts) er... 1 down 2 to go
12/18/2017 Rare Pair Shorts Winter Exchange What Even?


New Year’s Countdown is posting from Dec 1 to 31. Slythindor100 is from Dec 1 to 25 and DracoHarry100 gives you all the prompts up front and you can just write ONE STORY w/ all the prompts. Which I’ve totally done in the past. LOL.

Things in the back of my mind that I may or may not eventually do something for: winterknights (Merlin), and mini_fest (Harry Potter).

Also – this may or may not be happening – I have like no clue and I’m not asking the mod about it (lol): exchange fest for Camelot_Drabble.

Also, things all MODS need to do: 1. Post a link to your community in your email b/c it’s easier to click on a link than go looking and figuring out how to spell your comm name – esp when it’s not something easy like “small_gifts” 2. Always ALWAYS ALWAYS INCLUDE THE DUE DATE (esp if it’s a fest) in your email. ALWAYS. It’s awful having to go searching for the due date if you’re not someone who has a calendar handy. 3. Try to link the rules page (or the header page) in your email.

Anyway, as you were. | What are you guys working on?
