So, I have written about the awesomeness of the writing community. A great many people have taken the initiative, worked hard to come up with a great product, and e-publish, or publish thru Amazon. AKA self-publishing. But there a few who can do it with flair. My goal here is to introduce a few authors to people who may not otherwise hear about them but would enjoy them. I will be looking to do this on the first business day of the month every month.
First, I would like to introduce, Kait Nolan. She has been published in the same issue of Forever Nocturne that my as yet, one and only horror story appeared in. We started tweeting once in a while and it came to my attention that she was working off the grid so to speak.

Kait Nolan Book titles include:
Devil's Eye - Trouble. That’s what wolf-shifter Mick Guidry thinks when a beautiful woman appears in his New Orleans bar with a hurricane at her back. His first impression is confirmed when Sophie starts asking questions about his missing waitress, Liza. Mick will do anything to rescue a member of the pack he’s made for himself, including forming an unlikely alliance with a woman with a badge.
Foresaken by Shadow - Banished from their world with his memory wiped, Ultimate Fighter Cade Shepherd doesn’t remember his life as Gage Dempsey, not even the woman he nearly died for. But when Embry Hollister’s father is kidnapped by military scientists, the only one she can turn to for help is the love from her past. Will Gage remember the Shadow Walker skills he learned from her father, and if they survive, will Embry be able to walk away a second time?
Second up, we have Hope Welsh. Hope first came to my attention through the contest on the Knight Agency contest. She was trying to help me :) (Don't judge her for my craziness. I am beyond certifiable!) Recently, on twitter, I saw her talking about her book available thru Amazon. And a thought was born. lol

Lana Summers wants nothing to do with anything paranormal--not after seeing what psychic ability did to her own mother. When evil begins to stalk her, she's rescued by Cole Williams--but Evil is watching...and time is running out. Can they solve the prophecy in time or will her denial and his secrets tear them apart?
The Storm Within
Kari Davis is on the run. Witness to the murder she's been framed for, she's got nowhere to go and no one to run to. When she is stranded in an Oklahoma blizzard, she discovers her guardian angel rescuer is more than she's bargained for. Is he her salvation or will Cade Williams be the source of her ultimate destruction?
Danger is coming...
Third, I'd like to introduce the fabulous Samantha Hunter. Who is kind, giving, and seems to be wonder woman with her quilting and other home expertise that she offers to her blog followers on a regular basis. She is also in the position that she is a Harlequin author. I have a signed copy of one of her books from Blaze line.

Samantha Hunter book titles include:
There’s more than sex between them. . .
Convinced she's a stalker magnet, Gwen Mitchell is taking a break from work and from men, trying to find a little “Gwen time” and figure out what's next in her life. When she meets sexy reporter Nathan Stark, on assignment to interview witches in Salem, Ma, life gets a lot more interesting. She’s fiercely attracted to Nathan, but she’s not sure she can trust him.
Nathan is caught off-guard when one of the women he meets while conducting interviews happens to resemble a woman who keeps turning up dead in his nightmares. Unfortunately, his dreams have a history of becoming reality. To protect her, he'll have to face the past he's tried to leave behind him.
It doesn't take long before they both fall prey to the powerful sexual attraction that they can't seem to fully control, and that might be the biggest danger of all.
When shy Emily Tucker almost dies and ends up in a coma, her out of body experience gets very physical -- with her sexy business partner and friend, Gavin Wright. Emily isn't sure what's happening as she keeps finding her incorporeal self popping up in Gavin's apartment, but she's running out of time. Her Living Will asks Gavin not to let her linger for long. All she knows for sure is that when she's touching Gavin, she takes physical form again, and this may be her last chance to let him know how she really feels about him. But what will happen when the night's over?
And last for the month, but certainly not least, we have Carrie Bailey, AKA the Peevish Penman. This wonderful, incredible woman has put together an anthology of sorts, which I have participated in. The Handbook of Writer Secret Society. My husband shall be reading for the pod cast if I can get my darned computer sound stuff to quit bullying me LOL.
Her blog/online magazine where she and other guest authors post about all aspects of writing is an incredible font of information. http://peevishpenman.blogspot.com/
Another writer Andrew Jack, @ajackwriting on my twitter stream, did a three part overview of self-publishing, which starts here http://www.andrewjackwriting.com/2010/12/self-publishing-part-one-polymaths/ and Peevish Penman makes a prominence appearance.
The Handbook of Writer Secret Society is a wonderful book for all writers or anyone involved in the publishing industry to appreciate.
The Handbook is available through Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/Handbook-Writer-Secret-Society-ebook/dp/B004H1TDII/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2&s=books&qid=1296584324&sr=1-1
