CONTEST: Help a Reader Out
Last week, I dropped two more names off my auto-buy list. One author went the way of women’s fiction (by the way, why isn’t there a men’s fiction genre?) and, for some inexplicable reason, that genre makes me cringe. The other author left the romance genre years ago, but I continued to buy her books because I LOVED her romances, even her early category titles–actually, ESPECIALLY her early category titles. However, after nineteen mainstream titles with abrasive characters I can’t root for, even I have to accept her writing’s no longer my cuppa. (No, it’s not Tami Hoag. I prefer her romantic suspense, but her mainstream suspense still kick-ass.)
Anyhoo, I realized my auto-buy list is pitifully short and I sorely want to lengthen it. Share your auto-buy authors. Make a recommendation. I read across all genres…except women’s fiction and chick lit.
A random commenter will win a $10 Amazon or Barnes & Noble gift certificate. Contest closes May 31, 2008 at 5 PM MST.
