Yay! I won a contest from the ladies at EscapeWiththe7 website! I won a wonderful prize pack, people, let me tell you. Some other folks won a copy of a book or other prizes. I. Won. All. Seven. Books! What a reward for returning to the Internet! Some of these books were on my TBR list already. I don't own any copies yet. I actually never heard of a few of the novels, but now I've been introduced to the works of all of these wonderful authors. I'm so happy, can't you tell? :-) I'll list these wonderful, talented, authors for you.
Aprilynne Pike is the author of the best-selling debut, WINGS. (Okay, bias on my part by listing her first since I "met" Aprilynne a few years ago on AbsoluteWrite.com. :-)
Carrie Ryan is the debut author of the Teen Book Video Award 2008 Finalist, THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH. (Okay, more bias on my part since Carrie is a fellow South Carolinian) :-)
Saundra Mitchell is the debut author of the hit novel, SHADOWED SUMMER.
Sarah MacLean is the debut author of the smash YA regency historical called THE SEASON.
R. J. Anderson is the debut author of the "spellbinding" novel, FAERY REBELS: SPELL HUNTER.
Sarah Cross is the debut author of the riveting YA novel, DULL BOY.
Sarah Rees Brennan is the debut author of the "fiery" novel, THE DEMON'S LEXICON.
So go forth and buy the works of these wonderful authors. Enjoy their work! I know I will. :-)
