New Authors Alert!

Instead of doing my chores or the many other things I should be getting done, I like to procrastinate by looking for new authors and drooling at pictures of Gerald Butler.

What? I admit it.

Anyway! I found a few authors that are completely new to me, one of which is actually a debut author, and I wanted to give you guys a heads-up.

Don't say Auntie Wendy never gave you anything! (Okay, did that sound as creepy as it did in my head?)


1. Margaret Ronald.

I couldn't find a site for her but she does run a blog, her second book Wild Hunt comes out this month.

Blurb:

Genevieve Scelan thought she was done with magic.

She was wrong.

Sure, six weeks earlier Evie—bike messenger, supernatural tracker, and avid Red Sox fan—had been instrumental in bringing down the Fiana, the organization of magicians that had ruled Boston's undercurrent for hundreds of years. But now they were gone, Boston could breathe easy again, the Sox had a chance at the pennant, and Evie was ready to relax.

Except it turns out that when you take down the guy on top, everyone assumes you're going to fill his spot, and now Evie finds herself at the center of a whole lot of unwelcome magical attention. On top of that, a new client needs her to call up a family ghost and ask about a stolen inheritance; Evie's friend Nate has a supernatural problem of his own; and a legendary pack of hounds has been terrorizing Boston's undercurrent. And try as Evie might to deny the legacy that runs through her blood, when the Hunt is called, the Hound must run . . . 

Doesn't it sound awesome? I can't wait to read it!

This is a debut author and her book, Hunted by the Others comes out in May! A little info on the book:


They are the Others — the vampires, mages, and werewolves once thought to exist only in our imaginations. Now they’re stepping out of the shadows, and nothing in our world will ever be the same again... 

IN A TOWN LIKE THIS, BEING A P.I. CAN BE MURDER 

Shiarra Waynest’s detective work was dangerous enough when her client base was strictly mortal. But ailing finances have forced her to accept a lucrative case that could save her firm — if it doesn’t kill her first. Shiarra has signed on to work for a high-level mage to recover an ancient artifact owned by one of New York’s most powerful vampires. 

As soon as Shiarra meets scary, mesmerizing vamp Alec Royce, she knows her assignment is even more complicated than she thought. With a clandestine anti-Other group trying to recruit her, and magi being eliminated, Shiarra needs back-up and enlists her ex-boyfriend–a werewolf whose non-furry form is disarmingly appealing–and a nerdy mage with surprising talents. But it may not be enough. In a city where the undead roam, magic rules, and even the Others aren’t always what they seem, Shiarra has just become the secret weapon in a battle between good and evil–whether she likes it or not…


It makes me think of Harry Dresden, girl version and I LOVE Dresden so  I can't wait to read this one too! I'll be reviewing both books on the blog which is pretty awesome and I can't wait!
