Hey y’all…Happy Thanksgiving! This post is dedicated to ALL of the wonderful, fabulous, fantastic, imaginative authors out there. I know that there’s probably THOUSANDS of hard working writers around the globe and there’s just no way to highlight every single one. But here’s a very small list of the authors that I constantly turn to for comfort, the authors that create books that are more like my best friends than characters in a fictional world. I’m constantly in awe of the talent that I discover every single day as a blogger and a reader! Thank you for providing me with an escape from my everyday life, for giving me a chance to live in another world, to meet new characters from all walks of life, for lifting me up and inspiring me, for making me cry and laugh and for so much more…
*This list is not in any particular order😉

“Joanna Wylde is the New York Times bestselling author of the Reapers MC series. She started her writing career in journalism, working in two daily newspapers as both a reporter and editor. Her career has taken different paths, from managing a homeless shelter to running her own freelance writing business, where she took on projects ranging from fundraising to ghostwriting for academics. During 2012 she got her first Kindle reader as a gift and discovered the indie writing revolution taking place online. Shortly afterward she published her breakout book, Reaper’s Property, and started writing fiction full time.
Joanna lives in the mountains of northern Idaho with her family.”
“T.M. (Tracey Marie) Frazier never dreamed that a single person would ever read a word she wrote when she published her first book. Now, she is a five-time USA Today bestselling author and her books have been translated into numerous languages and published all around the world.
T.M. enjoys writing what she calls ‘wrong side of the tracks romance’ with morally corrupt anti-heroes and ballsy heroines.
Her books have been described as raw, dark and gritty. Basically, what that means, is while some authors are great at describing a flower as it blooms, T.M. is better at describing it in the final stages of decay. ”
(The King Series, The Dark Light of Day Duet, The Outskirts Duet, The Perversion Trilogy)
