Looking for New Authors

Please call me, ChickJ. I love these sites for being able to discover new writers. The world of publishing has limited and rejected many writers. Like the music industry, only people who has connections or fit a very narrow of what music is suppose to be.

The internet has open the field of music up to lots of new and exciting sounds. So has the field of writing. New authors are appearing that I would have never found.

For example: Thanks to Bubblews I found R.K. Finnell's Kickshaw Candies . A wonderful and scary horror/fantasy about a candy shop. Nothing I have read is like it. A must for fans of horror/fantasy readers.

So I am here looking for new writers. I am sure I find some good ones here, too.

it is a good thing that website like this is a gateway to look for well known authors. I hope, I can find one.

Most of the well known authors have websites and are very friendly. I correspond with J. A. Jance, L.E.Modesitt, Jr , and Simon Brett among others.

There are a number of book reviews here, and I think you will find many interesting reads in the library at your place.

I'm not a "real" writer in the sense of having published anything offline, but I do love to write. I also like discovering authors new to me, but most of them aren't new writers. One I did discover at Squidoo was Norma Budden. I've read two of her books now. LoudMan here has also written an interesting short eBook you might want to read.
