I basically only read LDS authors anymore. Really, how can I go wrong? When I have so many to chose from, I can keep reading all the time--well, all the time that I have to read, anyway. What a fun bloghop! There are so many names that I recognize.

Gayle said...

That's a not a fair question! There are so many I love -- Sarah Eden, Rachael Anderson, Melanie Jacobson, Heather Moore, etc. etc.!

Charlie Moore said...

Julie, your list tells us of the more popular LDS authors and it is a great list. I would mention some others like, A. L. Sowards, Clair Poulson, Sandra Grey and Stephanie Black. As well as Josi Kilpack and Traci Abramson. Yes, the list does go on and on.

And speaking of giveaways. Go over to Karlene's newLDSfiction site where my new novel, Culpability and Absolution, is a sponsor book for October.

Stephanie Humphreys said...
