Top 10 Tuesday — New to Me Authors

14 Jan

2019 was a great year for reading! I discovered a number of new and exciting authors. Discovered, as in I read them for the first time. Some of the authors had been published before and some had debut releases. (Some I met in person last year — squee!) You may be familiar with some or all of them, but in case you aren’t, they are all recommended by me. I look forward to more great books to discover from these authors.

 Hope you discover a new author too!

    The Story Peddler is on my TBR, so I’m glad to see you enjoyed it! All of these artists are new to be except for her, so I look forward to checking out some of their work. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    Here’s my TTT post.

    Linda Thompson — The Plum Blooms in Winter

    • Linda Thompson January 19, 2020 at 10:33 am #

      Thank you so very much, both to Beckie and Michelle!! I am very grateful to you both–and I hope you don’t mind that I’ve promoted shamelessly based on your endorsements!! My second novel is due out at the end of 2020. I confess I’ve struggled mightily figuring out how to produce a novel on a reasonable timeline…unlike Plum, where I had all the time I wanted! Hearing from people like you who say that Plum has had an impact is part of what has kept me going. So again, my deepest thanks <3

        Wow! Thanks, Linda! I look forward to reading your next installment. 💖

    I haven’t heard of any of these authors except Cathy Gohlke and I love her! Thanks for sharing this list. I’ll check out the ones I don’t know!

      Hope you find one to love!
