Occasionally I love to pass along information I find out about new-to-me authors. I just love finding a new author, especially on the recommendation of someone who has read and enjoyed their work. I really like it if they have several books already published I can dive into. Besides, authors are always readers, and I enjoy reading more than the average person (though I feel guilty, because I think I should be writing).
Anyway, my sister recently told me about a writer for Loose Id, Cherise Sinclair, who has some hot and steamy books out (definitely not G-rated, if you get my drift… okay, not even PG-13). I read the Master of the Shadowlands series. Hot, hot, hot!!! And oh, so good. The characterization in them is wonderful and I can’t wait to try some of her other books.
I also picked up a new-to-me author at Nationals, paranormal author Pamela Palmer. I have to say that her Feral Warriors novels are the first books I’ve bought based on a bookmark/postcard. This author sent promotional materials to the HOD Readers Luncheon. The postcards were actually pictures of her covers and they were wonderful! After visiting her website, I realized the first in her paranormal series would come out right before Nationals (she is also published in historical). So I decided to wait and get a signed copy while there. Since then, I’ve devoured books 1 and 2, and 3 comes out this week. I can’t wait!!! If you like sexy paranormals, these are great.
And though she isn’t new to me, I also picked up Rita Herron’s new Demonborn book (book 2 of the series, I loved book 1). Talk about sexy paranormals! Seeing a trend here?!? But I’ve also read Maven Linda Howard’s Burn (really good! but now I’m even more afraid to take a cruise) and several Harlequin Presents, including Lynn Raye Harris’s Spanish Magnate, Red Hot Revenge (gotta love those sexy Spaniard’s!).
So let’s talk about what you’re reading today. Got any new authors to tell me about? Current favorite books or obsessions? I need something else to distract me from my own writing. :)
