There are just some authors...

Wow! I have just fallen in love with a new me anyway. Linda Howard. I had never read any of her books before, but I just finished Open Season and After the Night and I have fallen in love with her. I wanna write like that!! lol! It makes me want to just dissect her books to see how she weaves that magic. Authors like Ms. Howard remind me of why I wanted to be a writer in the first place. Anyway, I am always excited to find a new author with a big backlist so that I can just immerse myself in their worlds. Needless to say, I will be picking up some new books by Linda Howard...ASAP!


  1. That's quite a shout out! :) I've not read any of Linda Howard's works, yet. But it sounds like I need to grab one or two and give it a go.

    I recently did the same thing, finding a new author, when I picked up stories from Nalini Singh and Janet Chapman. Love their stuff!

  2. Oh, I love Nalini Singh!! She's wonderful. I've never read Janet Chapman, so I'll definitely put her on my list. I'm always looking for new authors!!

  3. Linda has been a fave of my sister since she began writing. I know I've read a few of her books, the earliest ones... she writes well, if a bit sparsely for my personal taste! I got burned out on straight suspense, though.
