Tracy Wolff | New to Me Authors
December 11, 2010
I have to admit, I canít believe 2010 is drawing to a close.† Iím absolutely
astounded that we are in December and that Christmas is right around the
corner!† But since we are in the last month of the year, I thought Iíd take a
look back at some of the new authors Iíve discovered this year and the books
that Iíve loved.†
I know sheís been around for a few years, but I found Kristan Higgins this year
and absolutely fell in love with her spunky, down-on-their-luck heroines.†
Contemporaries are back in a big way and Kristinís latest book, ALL I EVER WANTED, was
absolutely awesome.† Iím most of the way through her backlist and loving that as
Patricia Briggsís Mercy
series is another set of books that absolutely blew me away.† Iím a huge
paranormal and urban fantasy lover anyway, and I picked up the first book on a
whim.† I went back to BN the next day and bought the following four and am
currently waiting, with bated breath, for book number six in the series.
I also picked up Rachel
Caineís Morganville Vampire series on a random trip to the bookstore and
really got sucked into it as well.† While it is a YA series (and I have to admit
Iím on a huge YA kick lately)† itís a really interesting take on the vampire
mythology.† If you like vampires, itís definitely worth a gander.
A new author to erotica, Red Garnier, really
piqued my interest with her debut Heat novel, THE SATIN SASH.† I fell in
love with all three characters in the book and think Red did an awesome job with
the entire story line.† Her second book, THE FEATHER, was just as
So, these are some of my favorite new to me authors of 2010.† How about you?†
Who have you read for the first time that you really liked?† Leave a comment and
be entered to win a copy of FROM FRIEND TO FATHER, the
first book in the trilogy that ends with UNGUARDED.† Have a great

Laura Bickle, Chris Masuda & Sean Noonan are three of the new-to-me authors that struck me this year. I try very hard to read books from new authors. Hopefully, 2011 will be filled with many more.

I'm glad to find I'm not the only one locating new authors recently, well, at least new authors to me. By the way, your book sounds like one I will enjoy reading.

DFW Tea Readers group and Readers 'n 'ritas have been a great source for discovering new authors. This year I was introduced to Louisa Edwards, Nikki Duncan, and Annette Blair, among others.
(Maria Munoz 9:41am December 12, 2010)
I discovered Lauren Dane and now I'm trying to find as many as her titles as possible. So nice when you discover a new author.

I read Ask Adam by Jess Dee & loved the book. I'm looking forward to reading her other books.
(Pam Hager 11:52pm December 12, 2010)
I just discovered Diane Whiteside's books this year---they are just great.
(Sue Farrell 12:07pm December 13, 2010)
I love reading new authors and love searching the shelf at the bookstore for new authors or even "seasoned" authors I haven't read. Three of my "finds" this year are Christie Kelly, Delilah Marvelle and Laura McKee. They all are wonderful and all have a fresh approach which is refreshing.
I haven't read Red Garnier yet so she is being added to my list of "must try" authors.

Being a caretaker where I live, and doing volunteer work takes up a lot of my time, so I haven't had much time to read. Although not on the list of authors here, I did start reading books by Gregory Maguire. He did a take-off on books from the Wizard of Oz. It's an adult version, and quite off the beaten path. I live in a small town, so I have to take what books are available to me, unfortunately. I've also enjoyed Janet Evanovich when I needed a quick, uplifting read. But as I've stated, time was short. I'm hoping to change that in the upcoming year. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

The new to me author that I like the most is Maya Banks I'm reading all I can find of hers.
(Vickie Hightower 6:37pm December 13, 2010)
My daughter introduced me to Terry Pratchett - I am hooked.
