ARTICLE - #NewAuthorForMe Selections

July is very nearly here and Shaun and myself from Book Addict Shaun, (and anybody else who wants to join in), will be spending the month reading new (and old) authors and every time we read a new author we use the hashtag #NewAuthorForMe. I have been scouring my to read list which is getting more and more ridiculous but am managing to eek out a few that are definitely on my list.

Yes, I know its not quite July but I figured it's close enough. I started reading Chevy Stevens last night and am already nearly done. It's a cracking book and one that I don't really want to put down.

In addition to this being a great book Chevy Stevens has another new release entitled Those Girls that is due out in the UK 7th July 2015. Click here for the link to Amazon.

Synopsis for the new book: How far would you go to protect the ones you love? Life has never been easy for the three Campbell sisters. Jess, Courtney, and Dani live on a remote ranch where they work hard and try to stay out of the way of their father's temper. One night, a fight gets out of hand and the sisters are forced to go on the run, only to get caught in an even worse nightmare when their truck breaks down in a small town. As events spiral out of control they find themselves in a horrifying situation and are left with no choice but to change their names and create new lives. Eighteen years later, they are still trying to forget what happened to them. But when one of the sisters goes missing, followed closely by her niece, they are pulled back into the past. And this time there's nowhere left to run...

Already my New Author For Me challenge is going to cost me money because I absolutely must read her back list!

In addition to Chevy I have selected a few other authors that have caught my eye for various reasons.Here's the list of the ones I really want to make sure I get to in the month of July:-

Ed Chatterton - A Place to Die
Col Bury - My Kind of Justice
Mike Craven - Born In A Burial Gown
Normal - Graeme Cameron
The Spider in The Corner of The Room - Nikki Owen

So as you can see it's completely doable for ,me at the moment. No doubt this list will continue to grow and I can see this challenge continuing.

I love nothing better than finding new authors. It's great when you hear somebody talking about how good a book was and then you read it and find out how right they were. I cannot wait to get my teeth stuck into some new books!
