booking freakboy: SOUL RECKONING by Nancy E. Polin

4 Reasons to read SOUL RECKONING by Nancy E. Polin 

Rowan and Luke are interesting main characters with more than a few layers to explore.

New Orleans seems to secrete the perfect atmosphere for the paranormal.

Some nice humorous moments sprinkled throughout keep the story from becoming too grim.

Nancy E. Polin knows how to keep the readers engaged and the story flowing right along.

A plop in the bucket...

I've never made a bucket list.  Partly because my morbid mind already thinks enough about my untimely demise.  Mostly because I never saw the point of writing out a list of experiences I'll never be able to afford to achieve unless some unknown rich relative kindly kicks the bucket and leaves me a fortune.  With my luck and German ancestry, I would probably discover that the fortune had been suspiciously amassed during World War II, leaving me racked with guilt.

Yet, here I am making a bucket list anyway.  A slightly realistic bucket list, which is why it's short.  I'm either in a masochistic mood or I'm just trying to fulfill one of my September writing goals. (Write at least one blogpost) 

a freakboy's bucket list 

1.  Finish writing A STUDY IN ORANGE  
To continue working on my lurid mystery-romance is another of my September writing goals, but finishing it may take a bit longer. 

2.  Finish watching DARK SHADOWS (1966-1971)
My sister and I recently started watching the original gothic soap opera from the very beginning.  She has seen it all before and I have seen a fair chunk.  With well over 1,000 episodes, this may take a little while. 

3.  Listen to the audiobook of AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY by Theodore Dreiser (1925)
I always meant to read this epic-length novel a second time, but fate has left me with this less than ideal option.  I'm pretty sure a copy is available to borrow from Nebraska Library Overdrive, so I just need to stop hesitating and take the plunge.

4.  See ROSEMARY'S BABY (1968) in the theater
To experience my favorite film on the big screen would be electric!  It would also require either time travel or for my local theater to suddenly start showing classic films.  In other words, this is the least realistic item here.

Thank you for reading or listening to my half-blind bucket list.

Freak Out, 

P.S. Another of my September writing goals is to sell at least one book or ebook.  So, in case you've enjoyed this post and crave more of my words...
