Author Support Post...

Well, it has been awhile since I have done a post like this. I'm trying to keep up with these and promoting as I discover people. I've just begun reading a new author by the name of Joseph Lallo. Click on his name to get over to his website.

While I am only at the beginning of this book, The Book of Deacon, I'm finding that I like his writing style and his idea for this book. I'll more than likely be getting the rest of his books as soon as I have some spare cash. (Ha! What is this thing I speak of??)

You can find a list of his books over at Smashwords.

Once I am done with the book, I will put up a full review. But he's a new favorite and seems to be self published. I love finding these little gems when looking for books.

I'm also looking for some suggestions as far as books go. No romance unless it has a really good plot, please.

Another author I've stumbled across and not exactly sure how long she's been at it, is Cricket McRae. I read her book, "Lye In Wait" and adored it. The MC is a home crafter and she even supplies some recipes for things at the end of the book like lotion bars. I used to love doing stuff like that and the recipe sounds amazing. I can't wait to try it!

So there are two authors I'm supporting. Who's on your list?

Yeah, the cover for the first one is cool! Need to check the iBookstore. And purchased RaShelle's, Jessica's, and Ali's books this month.

Yeah I like the cover for Deacon. The story is really good so far too. I'll add those covers over to the side bar later today. I've got some other authors I have found and will be doing more posts. Thanks for the comments guys!

The first cover is very strong. I've been reading a lot of fantasy this year for the first time in my life. I loved Peter V Brett's, The Warded Man. It might have been the standout book for me this year.

Also just finished Daryl Gregory's, Raising Stony Mayhall... powerful book.
