My Reading Recommendations … updated

Over on my other blog, Reading Recommendations, I’ve been busy for almost exactly a year now (I began writing that blog on Nov. 18, 2013!) promoting Authors and their books to Readers.

Some of these Authors have been new-to-me, many are established, and a number of them are long-time friends and colleagues. Not wanting to play favourites, I do encourage readers to look through the complete alphabetical list of 168 Authors I have already promoted during this year.

There are a number of these authors whose writing I’ve had the privilege to read – either as finished books they’re promoting on my blog, earlier published works or, in some cases, as a beta-reader for unpublished manuscripts – and I wrote two posts listing both self-and-traditionally published Authors whose work I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! For those complete posts, including lists and links to Authors, please click on Dylan Hearn’s Pay It Forward for self-published authors … and Traditionally Published Authors on Reading Recommendations.

Since Sept. 4, 2014, when the second list appeared, I have read and IMMENSELY enjoyed books by a number of other Reading Recommendations Authors and, in alphabetical order, I’d like to share those names with you now. (All names are linked to their original RR post.)

Gail Anderson-Dargatz
Arjun Basu
Paul Butler
C. Hope Clark
Lori Hahnel
Kim McCullough
Peter Midgley
S.K. Nicholls
Gail Norton
David Prosser
Fred Stenson

I still have a large stack of print and eBooks yet to read that are written by Reading Recommendations Authors. I have no doubt I’ll be creating another list very soon! I do hope you have as much pleasure as I’ve derived from discovering and reading books by the Authors I’ve featured on Reading Recommendations!

ABC Friday Reads – University of Alberta Press Authors!

Alberta Books Canada and the University of Alberta Press are hosting a literary salon on Sunday afternoon this weekend at a private house in Calgary. There will be readings and presentations by all four guest authors followed by a discussion of the topic, Working With a Publisher’s Editor.

UAP’s acquiring editor, Peter Midgley, who is himself a published author and professional storyteller, will be joined by Alice Major, Kath Maclean and Geo Takach. Each will read from their work, show videos and book trailers, or tell us a story. Should be a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon in November!

For Friday Reads this week, I’m recommending you click on the links above, discover more about these Alberta authors and their books, and join us by settling in to read one or more of these great books published by University of Alberta Press!
