I'm Team Author...

Yes I am team author...

As I know most of us bloggers are. It is the love of authors and their books that drive us to take on the extra job of blogging, yes it is another job; time wise, but most of us do this for fun. Out of the kindness of our hearts and with no expectation of compensation.

Since becoming a blogger I have met so many amazing authors that I can't even keep count anymore. Yes there are that many and yes I fangirl every time an author I love talks to me on Twitter, Facebook, follows me, favorites a tweet or just walks in my general direction.

But we all have those special authors that hold a special place in our hearts. Those authors that we would do anything for. The ones that we consistently talk about, read, buy, stalk, befriend and pimp. These are the authors that have climbed into our minds and taken a solid hold and I'm not complaining.

For me that list grows more and more every year. There are definitely more on that list now than there was this time last year. Then again, I know more authors now than I did back then. And I can't imagine how that list will grow as I continue to read more, blog more and meet more amazing authors!

But for now my list remains relatively small, but I look forward to adding to it as the years go by. As bloggers reading, reviewing, tweeting, Facebooking, pimping, whatever, helps spread the word about the authors we love so much. But I wanted more. I needed another way to show my love for my favorite authors. So I asked my good friend Megan to put something together for me.

You see she has great talent when it comes to graphics. So I told her what I wanted (I was very vague by the way) and she set out to create graphic genius.

And now thanks to Megan over at Book Groupies I can share my list with the world at a glance and here they are in all their glory! (In no particular order)

Aren't they beautiful??? Megan has some serious talent and completely blew me out of the water with these stunning beauties. Each are works of art in their own right, but together they make the list of authors that rock my world. Authors that I will never forget, authors that I will always pimp.

Do you have authors that rock your world? If so, I would love to hear about them. Maybe they will one day be on my list.

  1. These are such a cool idea! I notice that most of these are indie or small publisher based that makes me even more excited. I really need to read more indies, especially Steven Montano and M.R. Merrick.

  7. This is a really good idea! I think I have at least 1 or 2 books from each author (bought on Amazon) that I haven't gotten to yet.

    Talk about small times! Maybe Mars is the way to go for me. x)
