There are so many books out there right now on my 'To Be Read' list. I've heard some great things about several new books, but I have to say at the top of my list are the books generated by these fellow Inkspell authors. I suppose one could assume that I'd want to support the company that publishes my own books, but that really isn't it at all. In addition to being ridiculously awesome storytellers, these guys are genuinely nice people and if I spend my hard earned money on books, I love the idea that I'm purchasing work from an author that is sincerely grateful for each person who reads their titles.
A current book I'm reading is Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain (who is my latest obsession- I dork out over a man that is handy in the kitchen). In the same style, I'd like to give you a real behind the scenes of my experience as an author and meeting other authors. This is the REAL lowdown.
This book came out during my short hiatus. Boy, did I miss out too. Better late than never, right? Kitsy Clare is a genius author, but even more than that, she's super generous. She was one of the first people to contact me regarding book donations that will go to help out high school readers as incentives to meet reading goals. An absolute doll this gal is!
Add her book to your "To-Be-Read" list, and know that you are going to get a heart-wrenching love story that will stick with you for life.
The thing about people like this, most of the time they don't want to take the time to impart wisdom on the noobs. Deb's not like that at all. She's helpful, sweet and totally friendly. She is the perfect example of how anyone who is truly great at something should be. And if you're looking for a really good read, buy the book to the left. It's a crazy new take on paranormal. You won't be sorry.
Rebecca Hart immediately reminded me of a young Kathleen Turner. She actually does look like her in my opinion (think Romancing the Stone), but in her mannerisms as well. Chick is tough. She's outspoken, she writes what she wants and she takes no prisoners.
Rebecca is unique in so many ways, and her storyline in Call of the Sea definitely shows it.
And did I mention, she's super nice too? I don't associate with mean people. The Watcher was one of my favorite books I've recently read. Read it, it will keep you on the edge of your seat and you will literally fall in love.
Hunted, her first novel, I am convinced will be a huge hit. You should totally buy it, and when you do, thank me. I have awesome taste. Just look at it. It's mind-blowing.
Last but not least, I'm going to talk about award-winning author turned super publisher, Melissa Keir. The woman wears about a million hats and manages to juggle it all like she has a few clones running around. She is a consummate professional in all she does, especially as being my publisher. I can only assume she excels at that because she knows the publishing industry inside and out. She's been there, done that and has the awards to prove it. I suspect she will probably get a few more in her time because she is a world class author and still manages to pump out incredible work. Check out her stories if you haven't.
Because, you see, some of these people were instrumental in my journey. Others became good friends, and all of them have quality novels out there. They are amazing people with amazing stories, and I don't know about you but I like to support people and businesses who are grateful for my purchase.
Each book cover will take you directly to Amazon so you might check out these authors more. Please do so if you are looking for a great read. I can highly recommend any one of them!
