Welcome to my stop on the Share the Love Giveaway Hop, hosted by Herding Cats & Burning Soup. I always enjoy this hop, because I get to feature authors that I love! This time I have an extra-special giveaway: I’m highlighting three new-to-me authors who I think YOU should be reading too. And the best part? One international winner will receive a pack of THREE BOOKS, one from each author. So let’s get right to it: Here are the three authors I’d like you to meet:
1. Charlie Jane Anders
Charlie Jane Anders is the editor at i09.com, but she’s also a very talented author. Her first novel All the Birds in the Sky was just released, and I loved her blend of science fiction and fantasy, which along with her quirky writing style, makes this an unusual and magical story. Recommended for fans of coming-of-age stories, interesting characters who don’t do what you expect, genre mashups, and cool gadgets!
2. Will McIntosh
Will McIntosh has just published his first YA book Burning Midnight, and I had a blast reading it! He’s also the author of Love Minus Eighty and Defenders, which I can’t wait to read. Will has written a bunch of other books and short stories, he won a Hugo for his short story Bridesicle in 2010, and his novel Defenders has been optioned for film! He is one busy guy:-) Burning Midnight is recommended for fans of adventure stories, and readers who love crazy twists.
3. Matt Wallace
Matt Wallace’s Envy of Angels was such a happy surprise for me! He’s since published the second book in his Sin du Jour series, Lustlocked, and the third book, Pride’s Spell, will be out this summer. I’ve said this in my reviews, but I’ll say it again: I’m a tough audience when it comes to humor in fiction. I do have a sense of humor but it’s very particular. So imagine my delight when Envy of Angels made me laugh out loud! This is one author to watch, folks! The Sin du Jour series is recommended for readers who love subversive humor, outrageous story elements and spot-on dialogue.
And now for the giveaway: One international winner will get copies of All the Birds in the Sky, Burning Midnight and Envy of Angels! So you’ll get to sample each one of these fabulous authors:-) Don’t forget to show them some love by following them on Twitter for extra entries. Ready to enter?
