This is for the "A Book Is Born" topic. Hopefully start ing in June but it may be July.

Please make a list of your absolutely favorite authors. The ones that you can't wait to produce a new book. The ones that you would walk a mile to buy what they write. The one s that you would bug your library endlessly to order for you. I don't care how many you list. Some will be shared by other of your friends but please list them again and I will combine when I go through the lists.

This not not an exhaustive list of who I read. It is more so a must have list. I get these authors' books simply because they're released

>13 ColinMichaelFelix: That's really what I intended...a must have list...when I started this. Some of the authors that I have received from people will never publish another book, as they are dead. Someone else sometimes takes over their books if they write a series, so I'll keep watching them...at least for awhile. There are others that haven't published anything in 5 or 6 years.
