Update on fests

also known as, I make lists to avoid writing.

[community profile] hp_goldenage - Due Feb 18 - 80%
[livejournal.com profile] reelbbcmerlin - Due Jan 31 Done. Also the date changed so who knows when that's gonna happen. (Waiting to post)
[info]daily_deviant - Due Feb 14 Waiting to post.
[livejournal.com profile] ron_draco_fest - Due Feb 15 - 0%
[livejournal.com profile] hp_kinkfest - Feb 21 - DONE
[livejournal.com profile] dracotops_harry - Due March 22 - 0%
[livejournal.com profile] hds_beltane - Due April 16 - 0%

ETA: I signed up for [community profile] femmefest so I'll just be waiting for my assignment. I'll probably sign up for [livejournal.com profile] hp_getlucky, I have to check 'em out to put the timeline on my calendar.

I also need to make a 2017 final masterpost for fic and audiobooks. I'm so lazy. I had a very big lunch and I'm just falling asleep at work now. SIGH. And it's pouring out and my umbrella broke -- so naturally, I made a post about [livejournal.com profile] hp_drizzle / [community profile] hpdrizzle

I hope you're having a lovely Tuesday.

I'm sure there's more that I'm probably forgetting, and I'm freaking out already. I'm also going to make a call for prompts for HARRY/DRACO art in the next few weeks so look out for that.

All my love and thanks for being amazing.
DIG.
Remember when I said I was going to do less this year? Yeah, me neither. Also my goal for 2018 is to finish at least 3 WIPs.

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

Free LGBT [F/F] book Wednesday!

I got an email about this today and realized I've already purchased it. it's free today on AMAZON!



Can a house save the lives of the people who live in it? Can an inscription written in a book over sixty years ago change the fates of people not even born when it was written?

Beryl Gray is solid and dependable – her partner, Claire, thinks so, her family thinks so, her colleagues think so. She has a long-term relationship and a job she likes as a university librarian. Her life seems settled, content – except nothing is as it seems.

Aggie Bishop's last girlfriend left her three years ago and she hasn't had a date since. Her life now revolves around work and taking care of her great-aunt Cory who doesn't want to be taken care of. Aunt Cory still lives in the run-down mansion that the rest of the family wants to sell if they can only get the old lady into a nursing home. Aggie is all that stands between them and her great-aunt.

When Beryl finds a book with a romantic inscription dated 1945, the events that follow will change the lives of all three women forever.

Spanning decades, this enchanting tale reminds us that some loves never fade and that sometimes, home truly is where the heart lies. (approx. 81,000 words)

Some Rare Pair Love (Masterlist!)

Every summer [livejournal.com profile] rarepair_shorts has the ‘Wishlist Event’ where people submit their wishes w/out any obligation to create or fulfill other people’s wishes. It’s one of my favourite fests and last year it was a huge success and this year, also, we had a tone of great entries. I always try to fulfill as many wishes as I can, but I always fail at not being able to do them all. This year, I was lucky enough to do 12 out of 20+ so that wasn’t so bad. If I wasn’t so busy w/ work and planning my trip in August, I would have done more! Well, there’s always next year. Below is my masterlist of the wishes I created. They were all fun an unique in their own way and I had such a great time!

Thanks for reading!

Due dates and ramblings...

I didn't bother tagging the comms -- but you guys know what's up.

UPDATE: 9.26.17
hd_familyfest - Sept 15
Merlin Canon - Sept 21
hd_fan_fair - Sep 30 (I think. I got an extension)
weasleyjumpers - October 5

Hd-owlpost (times 3) - November 12
hd_erised - Nov. 6
HD ART FEST - Nov 8

I signed up for hoggywartyxmas again this year.

I will prob. sign up for winterknights - not sure about merlin holidays - it's not really my cup of tea (are they even running?)

And will have to check w/ other mods about the rare pair exchange fest at rarepair_shorts.

Not sure if my CD Co-mod would wanna do an exchange fest again for camelot_drabble b/c I know she had a tough time last year with the participants to check in and that's a serious PIA, yo.

I see that there's a Harry/Draco big bang on the horizon but I'm not sure if I will actually do it b/c big bangs always intimidate me and I end up dropping out b/c I am just not into writing for the long haul...I guess? Maybe I just get scared. I write fluffy romance and no one needs to read tooth rotting fluff for 50k plus. Even though that's exactly what my original fic is about. HA.

Also, here's another "dig is on holiday pic" under the cut.

Free Gay Book Wednesday



Free on amazon today. I bought this book a couple of years ago when it was free and then read it while waiting for Jury Duty. It was a fun read w/ lots of hot sex and some drama and slight mystery.

If you're feeling bored, you should pick it up. I know now it's on audiobook also but I wasn't crazy about the narrator so I didn't get it in audio yet. However, it's def. worth the $0 today.

Link here.

Jon Beatty thought he’d found the best man for him until Craig walked out. To add insult to injury, Craig's got a new lover—a woman—and wants Jon to be a different kind of best man…at his wedding.

Reasoning that the only way to get over one man is to get under another, Jon heads out to Wilde’s, the night club on Capitol Hill famous for its hot clientele and hotter bartenders. Jon just wants to get drunk and get laid, and bartender Liam Sable is more than willing to help with both.

Their one night stand turns into a rebound fling, but as Jon moves on with Liam, Craig starts having second thoughts about the break-up. His tiresome antics are the least of Jon and Liam’s worries, though. The least annoying, and the least dangerous…

That Awkward Moment...

So I have been offline for the most part in the month of August. I'm having a bit of an existential crisis and also taking new medication that's making me nauseous beyond all reason. Stress of running so many fests have caught up to me, and some people, well frankly, have been kind of a-holes to me.

In any case, I also accidentally deleted all my Livejournal and Dreamwidth messages.

I say all this, because, if you are a new person who "friended" me or "added" me to your circle, I might have deleted the message before returning the favour. Please let me know if I didn't add you back, and you'd like for me to do that :) You can email me, it'll probably be the fastest way for me to see your message since I am on a "click delete" accidentally frenzy. [Digthewriter @ gmail. com]

Yours. Always.

DIG.

Looking for an HD storyteller!

Are you an HD story teller? Can you bang out a 500 WC story by tomorrow?

I need a collaborator for an HD art piece and it's due ASAP so I'm looking for a friend to give a few words to my art for a fest. I'm on an extension as a pinch-hitter.

No beta necessary as I can beta it for you. The story has to be somewhere between 500-1000 words. Let me know if you can help!

digthewriter @ gmail . com and I'll share the art w/ you so you can come up with a brilliant story.

Thoughts?

I hope I get at least one person! <3 <3


All set for now, but if there are other people that want to collab w/ me for future fests for art/fic, etc, I'm ALWAYS OPEN to do things like that. I love you guys.

/that is all.

Free Gay Book Wednesday

And I'm back with a new free book notification for you guys. This one looks promising *I hope*. Free on Amazon for about a week!

‘Top Men’- Mickey and Jeff- The police officers you grew to love from GA’s Action! and Hero Series, back again to give fans a wild ride into the darkest secrets and desires of COPS.

Two of LAPD’s finest, Officer Jeff Chandler and his partner Mickey Stanton, have been together on duty for three years. When Mickey first met Jeff, a lateral transfer from Rain City- Seattle, he was crazy about him. When the men were assigned to a two-man patrol car, Jeff and Mickey’s attraction blossomed. And from then on, it was playtime!

On the street, Jeff and Mickey were tough and fearless, doing their job to protect and serve, but the testosterone charged pair were wild and out of control with their passion for each other. They loved doing risqué acts on duty and craved the adrenalin rush, until Jeff becomes burned out with patrol. His ambition is to rise up in the ranks. Soon the two men are at odds with what direction their careers should take, and Mickey resents Jeff for wanting to split up their team.

As friction begins to develop between them, they still have to continue battling the crime on LA’s streets. Between the raging fury and the sexual heat of their relationship, there is true love, and that love is put to the ultimate test, nearly ending in tragedy.
