Sheesh! I didn’t even place in this month’s Shallowreader BINGO. My March reading was curtailed by my writing, my poor, darling mother-in-law’s shingles (I happen to honestly love my MIL), family birthdays, Easter, an 20th anniversary, attending a “Professional Women’s Conference” (where I wore eye makeup, ran into a few fellow authors, and ate muffins), lots of socialising, and picking up and hiding a new bar fridge. Where was the time for reading?
Here’s my pitiful March Bingo Card
Okay, you may notice I DID read. I read my own work because:
a) continuity in writing a sequel is important
b) I was editing my forthcoming book Next to You (Out July 2016, kids!)
But I also re-read books for research for a second book in a rom-com-suspense series, and I did research for an academic paper, meaning I read academic books and articles that I never thought to apply to my Shallowreader BINGO card until JUST NOW!
Please note the bottom right corner square titled Hatchback Hero. This Unicorn is a bone of contention between myself and The Shallowreader, Vassiliki. This has been a sticking point for us for years. There is NO SUCH THING. A hatchback is not hot or heroic.
Hats off to Willaful for her March Crown. She found Sloth in her reading. I’m most impressed. All right, who am I kidding i’m ashamed because my March reading was slothful and I never thought to apply that to the Bingo card.
Now, if you read, like I know you all do, and you want to snatch that crown away from two-time champ Willaful, join in the Shallowereader BINGO. It’s fun and it’s FREEEEEEE!
See here for how to play along–for FREE. Better still, you can read ANYTHING YOU LIKE!!

*whispers* Hatchback heroes are ever so sexy!
Nay! But you are wrong! Men in hatchbacks have too much swag to care about their car image.
And yet… heroes are never in hatchbacks…
Authors need to embrace this hero much more heartily 😀
Keep the dream alive!
