2010 New Author Round-up

Every Year, Jackie at Literary Escapism hosts a New Author Challenge, the spirit of which I like very much.  However, I'm not very meticulous about posting links etc. so I often don't sign up for the challenge formally.  But I think it's worth talking about -- it's very easy to stay in that circle of known authors, especially with everyone writing series these days.  Sometimes it helps to have a nudge to try someone new.  So I fell pretty short of the challenge goal of 50, but here's my round-up.  I'm sure there are a few I've missed, as I'm also not especially meticulous about documenting what I've read unless I also happen to review it.  (I read lots and lots of books that I don't review).

In no particular order:

Jill Sorenson
Louise Allen
Diana Rowland*
Jennifer Rardin*
Kate Emerson
Cherie Priest*
Barbara Monajem
Wendy Markham
Carolyn Crane
Keri Arthur*
Elisabeth Naughton
Gayle Williams
Shaba Abe
Vicky Pettersson - no reviews yet but really liking the Zodiac series
Devon Monk* - wait, really? no reviews on this one either?  love, love loving it
Tracy Madison
Laura Wright
Nancy Holzner
Courtney Milan
Meredith Duran
Christie Ridgeway
Charles de Lint
N. K. Jemisin

*The starred authors are ones I was inspired to try by Jackie's various "mini-challenges" that she held throughout 2010.  I find it much easier to commit to a monthly theme than a whole year-long goal!
