Karen-Anne Stewart I haven't read these, but many sound very good!


message 2: by Marian (new)

Marian I'm working my way down the list


message 3: by Sadie (new)

Sadie Grubor IF this is a first book by new author, then why are their 2nd and 3rd installments of books on here?


message 4: by Michel (new)

Michel Vaillancourt Sadie wrote: "IF this is a first book by new author, then why are their 2nd and 3rd installments of books on here?"

From what I can tell, a couple of authors have listed their entire series here. Sort of "not the purpose". Hopefully an admin/librarian will do a tidy-up pass.


message 5: by Vicki (new)

Vicki Yes, I also noted that Twilight is o here--NOT a new author!

I agree!!! These 2nd and 3rd books need REMOVED to be fair!!!


message 8: by Cate (new)

Cate Beatty Thanks to those who added my book! Hope you enjoyed it!

message 9: by Kathy (new)

Kathy Why is A Beautiful Mess listed at least 3 times, that I saw on the top 100 page?


message 10: by K.Marie (new)

K.Marie Can Beg by C.d Reiss be added please


message 11: by Shannon (new)

Shannon How can book 2 of a series be a first book by a new author?


message 12: by Caroline (new)

Caroline Mitchell Thanks for voting for my book. I've faced a lot of challenges writing a book of my true paranormal experiences, but I'm delighted with the response since launch date three weeks ago.
Paranormal Intruder


message 13: by T.W. (new)

T.W. Barton Enter the broken record...If the author has a second book then they do not meet the criteria for this list.

Does the creator of a list manage the list and are they aware of comments made?


message 14: by Tricia (new)

Tricia Daniels Samantha Young is not a new author. She has published books back in 2011 none of her books should be on this list either.


message 15: by Aussie-Lisa (new)

Aussie-Lisa Sleiman Yep Night Owl does it for me. This book has everything: hot sex, hot sex and more hot sex! Haha .. nah it's really well written and your emotions are on a rollercoaster ride throughout the book. Did I mention there's a lot of hot sex? (I sound like a horny teenager but the hot sex is even really well written!) A definite must read!


message 16: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Banks This list kind of doesn't make sense…i thought it was the first book from a new author? Why are there so many second and third books on this list?


message 17: by Niki (new)

Niki Sadie wrote: "IF this is a first book by new author, then why are their 2nd and 3rd installments of books on here?"

I wondered the same thing!


message 18: by Tricia (new)

Tricia Daniels is someone going to review this list and get rid of the ones that shouldn't be here? I don't think Beautiful Disasater was Jamie McGuires first book either.

Jessica B Tricia wrote: "is someone going to review this list and get rid of the ones that shouldn't be here? I don't think Beautiful Disasater was Jamie McGuires first book either."

you are correct... Jamie said she wrote Beautiful Disaster as "fluff" while writing something else...


message 20: by Karen (last edited Jan 04, 2014 01:24PM) (new)

Karen Roma I'm staring to think these lists are USELESS!!!! So many authors are NOT new, and there are full series on the list also!
The total disregard of people who add these books to this list, and ignore the terminology "First Book by New Author" prevent genuine firsts by new authors from being recognised as they are so far down, they are overlooked!!
It's ridiculous!


message 21: by Cathrina (new)

Cathrina Constantine Many of the books are not from new author's. Looking for a new author in the bunch.

message 24: by Cate (new)

You are so right. how can someone with 9000 plus reviews be a new author? and multiple books listed? What about first book don't the voters understand?

Jae Hall -TimberBeast and Mary Moriarty -Search for the Kings of Angkor are first books by new authors too. And I hope you not only vote but actually support all of the new authors on this list.


message 27: by Khalid (new)

Khalid New author here as well.


message 28: by Mimi (new)

Mimi Wolske New Author First Book has been taken over by greedy people who want ALL of their books on this list -- guess what...i got invited to join but i won't when the group is obviously not controlled.


message 29: by Garrett (new)

Garrett Smith We published our first book, Rabbit Hole Rabbit Hole (The Paradox Series, #1) by Garrett Smith
last year.

Marketing is a challenge, but reviews have been good. We just started a sale, 99 cents for 90 days, as well as a GR advertising program.
