Congratulations to Michele, who won yesterday’s drawing! I’ll be emailing Michele to arrange delivery of her choice of book.
Yesterday we were chatting about glomming books, so today it only seems natural that we segue into an easy topic for every reader: Who are your favorite authors?
I said easy, but as every reader knows, it’s hard to name only one! When I’m asked this question, I have to refer to my auto-buy list. Who are the authors whose books I buy without even reading the back cover? Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb is one, right off the bat. She has been one of my favorites since I read her first book back in the early 80’s. Nora was the first author who made me start noticing who actually wrote the book I had so enjoyed. I remember being confused once because I didn’t get the same feeling from a book I had just finished, and then I realized that what I had just read was by a different author with the same last name. Nora Roberts became the first author on my auto-buy list.
Since then she has been joined by Jayne Ann Krentz/Amanda Quick/Jayne Castle, Marjorie M. Liu, Robin D. Owens, Susan Squires, Cate Rowan, Susan Meier, Jenna Kernan, Beth Yarnall, Shannon Donnelly and Mercedes Lackey. There are more, but those are the top tiers.
What about you? Who are the favorite authors on your auto-buy list? Those who comment get entered in today’s drawing for a free paperback title from my backlist!
