My List for the Literary Signing
So I'm reviewing the list of authors for the Literary Signing in SF and I start circling names of authors I don't want to miss. I realize when I'm only to the 'Cs' on the list that this isn't a good method of choosing who I'm going to try and 'meet' or buy books from.
However, once committed to a task it's hard for me to stop the process. I slog through the rest of the list trying to ONLY circle people I HAVE to see. I wasn't much more successful than the first method I was using.
The first list is my "narrowed down" choices. It's still ridiculous and un-doable, but whatever. It was so hard trying to make a decision. I'm going to talk to people who've been to RWA in prior years and try to come up with an action plan. The plan is a total act of desperation you realize. There are many reader faves on my lists so I imagine tons of other people will have the same idea.
Here's the first list
Ann Aguirre (loved GRIMSPACE)
Maya Banks (started reading her ebooks; loved the print releases)
Suzanne Brockmann (has left indelible images in my head)
Kresley Cole (A Hunger Like No Other... is all I'm saying)
Claudia Dain (A Kiss to Die For is reason enough)
Christine Feehan (the line will be insane I'm sure)
Lisa Gardner (one of my most referred books is her PERFECT HUSBAND)
Jayne Anne Krentz (my very first glom)
Marjorie M. Liu (I stalk her blog and love her books)
Pamela Morisi (so many old faves and keepers)
Robin D. Owens (Love the HeartMate series)
Susan Elizabeth Phillips (my sister will KILL me if I don't & GG has read all her Chicago Stars books)
Nora Roberts (pffft! She's Nora freaking Roberts)
TL Schaefer (met her out here in Romancelandia and she invited me to stop by...that's a no-brainer)
Nalini Singh (FOR SURE I have to see her. Have to.)
Anne Stuart (could you just scream? I'd swoon to have NIGHT FALL signed by her)
CL Wilson (Tairen Soul series is very good)
Here are some of the people I want to see but I haven't found a way to be in four places at once. These authors have provided me with many hours of wondrous reading entertainment.
Susan Andersen (who doesn't love her Elvis?)
Portia da Costa
Joan Johnston (love her sisters western trilogy)
Jill Marie Landis
Jill Monroe (I've never read her books, but those Authors Talk to Authors Videos...hilarious!)
Mary Jo Putney
