Cute guy among vines; typical Monday for Martin …

Hi, friends and readers:

As soon as I saw this morning’s photo post, I knew I had to put it up on the blog. Not only because the young man’s cute, but I like everything about the photograph: the lighting, the expression on the young man’s face, and the vines growing about him. It’s a very special photo, I think. How about you? Do you like it?

Today will be a typical Monday for me. I’ll work on my novel, Dodging a Pearl, all morning. After lunch, my boyfriend and I will visit the YMCA for a full workout: weights, mat exercises, basketball, and lap-swimming. We’ll hit the supermarket afterward. Then, who knows what we’ll do with our evening.

If you follow football, then you know the Green Bay Packers won their game against the Chicago Bears yesterday. We watched the game on our new TV; it was great. The Tampa Bay Bucs won their game against Atlanta, as well. And, of course, the Gators won their contest with Kentucky on Saturday, so it was a good football weekend all around.

In other news, my latest book, Flawed Boys, got a nice review from the Blackraven’s review site, receiving a four “Ravens” rating out of a possible five. The reviewers said:

“In the end, Flawed Boys is about hope and possibilities and reaching out for the one thing that everybody wants–love. This is an entertaining anthology that holds together as a unit, as well as separately in each story. Martin Delacroix knows how to paint rich images with his writing.”

I try not to pay too much attention to reviews. After all, a review is simply one person’s opinion about a particular piece of fiction. And peoples’ tastes in fiction vary widely. Often, something I write will receive a “five-star” rating from one reviewer and a “two-star” from another. Go figure … But it’s still nice to hear someone say they enjoyed the time they spent with one of my books.

Okay, I must get busy, friends. Have a nice Monday.
