New-to-me Authors…

When my dear friend Mama Kitty asked if I’d like to help celebrate her 30th birthday, I said “YES!” So I wrote a post, complete with a giveaway, about reading “new-to-me authors.” These are authors that I’ve not read before.

I’ve made it a personal challenge to read new-to-me authors. This is my second year of doing my own mini-reading challenge at my blog. Last year I read over 20 new-to-me authors. Some are relatively big names like Shiloh Walker and Jennifer Estep, who had been on my TBR list for a while. While others like Rebecca Royce and DL Jackson, I picked up because their work captured my eye. I’ve also picked up new-to-me authors via gifted books and freebies from book conventions. It’s fun to try a new author, especially when you find one that becomes your next auto-buy author!

So in celebration of Mama Kitty’s birthday, I’m offering one (1) lucky person an e-copy (Nook or Kindle) of My Wicked Valentine by Ann Mayburn, a new-to-me author I read earlier this year. This is the first book in her Club Wicked series, a contemporary BSDM romance series. For more information, please see my review HERE.

The contest is happening at MamaKitty’s site (NOT HERE).  So if you’d like to read more about new-to-me authors and enter the contest, please visit her site MK REVIEWS.

Do you like to read new-to-you authors? Stop by MK REVIEWS and tell me about it!

Thanks for stopping to chat!

  • I have my go-to authors that I love, but there is something exciting about giving a new author a try. Getting to discover a new POV on an old tale, a quirky spin on the familiar, a new book crush to love 🙂

    Happy Birthday to Mama Kitty. Going to go check it out 🙂

    I have authors I always read, but I love finding new authors as well. One way I like to find new to me authors is by reading anthologies. I have found numerous new authors that I love this way.

  • I think that I’ve found most of my favorite ‘new-to-me’ authors by recommendations (usually via Twitter), books that are review requests, or by trolling the cheap/free e-books via bookgorilla and other sites. 🙂
