New Poll & a Favorite Quote (Contest)
Tuesday, November 23rd, 2021

UPDATE: The winner is…Raye G!
*~*~*

Between two evils, I like to pick the one I haven’t tried before.  ~Mae West

I’m a film buff. I’ll admit it. And I love old classic movies. My absolute favorite black and white movies are Harvey with Jimmy Stewart and Arsenic and Old Lace with Cary Grant. I don’t watch as many these days because the family surrounding me doesn’t get black and white. If there aren’t explosions and superheroes, and dazzling color, what’s the point?

I included the quote above because Mae West was always a treat on the screen. How she got away with some of the things she said back in the day of strict censorship I’ll never know. She was witty, sexy, and her one-liners still slay.

Anyway, Mae West isn’t why I’m here. I got sidetracked.

The other day, I asked you to vote on your favorite themes for a future Boys Behaving Badly Anthology. I’ll admit, I had my favorite. I thought for sure it would be number one. Also, the times I’ve mentioned my theme to authors, they were very excited to write something for it. However, your choices have me rethinking. Not only do I need to appeal to readers but I also have to attract writers to the project.

So, vote one more time to help me decide. I’m not saying I’ll choose your idea in the end. I have to love the idea, too. However, your choices do influence. And here’s a challenge for you! I put two themes together in a couple of those choices because they looked interesting to me…

(1) Vote for your favorite theme, then (2) offer an idea for a title for the book for a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card! The previous titles have been Rogues, Blue Collar, Pirates, Stranded, First Response, and Cowboys. So shorter titles are preferred!

Narrowing it down... Which themes appeal to you the most for the next Boys Behaving Badly Anthology? Choose only one!

  • Silver Foxes/Military Heroes (40%, 8 Votes)
  • Silver Foxes (30%, 6 Votes)
  • Military Heroes (20%, 4 Votes)
  • Military Heroes/Winter Holiday Stories (10%, 2 Votes)

Total Voters: 20

    Silver Foxes, Mature Mischief

    Arsenic and Old Lace is one of my all time favorites too, and anything with Bing Crosby in it. Also love the Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes, Charlie Chan, and Laurel and Hardy.
