message 1: by Dee, the Insanity Check (last edited Sep 20, 2012 03:00AM) (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 652 comments As previously alluded to, we are going to change our Author of the Month to allow for some advanced planning. I know that I had previously mentioned that Sara Blaedel was going to be our October author, but when I was looking, I realized that she only had 2 books released in English currently (the third is due out in December), so she isn't eligible right now.

So nominations are open for the next three months. Please nominate who you would like to read, and once the voting is complete, the authors with the top 3 number of votes will be our upcoming authors.

As a reminder, must have at least 2 books published in English prior to the month that they are scheduled

Nominations will be open until the 24th, and then we will vote through the 29th.

Nominations
Helene Tursten
Anne Holt
Sara Blaedel
Maj Sjöwall

Susan (SusanThomas) | 146 comments No suggestions from me this time. I teach and with classes back in session my (pleasure) reading time is serverly curtailed. Looks like I'll be and observer for a while, rather than a participant.


message 20: by Dee, the Insanity Check (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 652 comments It's like crickets on nominations... I know there are more out there...


message 21: by Naomi, the Sanity Check (new)

Naomi (nblackburn) | 932 comments We can put SB back on the list, Dee


message 22: by Dee, the Insanity Check (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 652 comments its like crickets...c'mon - you guys must have more ideas...


message 23: by Dee, the Insanity Check (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 652 comments ok, so talking to naomi - we are going to make a change - in order for an author to be eligible they need to have only 2 books released in English - hopefully this will broaden our options and find some new authors ;)

let the mad rush for nominations begin...


message 24: by Naomi, the Sanity Check (new)

Naomi (nblackburn) | 932 comments Dee...do you want to throw Quentin in or save him for the Author Celebration for March we were talking about. are we sliding Sara into the Dec. slot?


message 25: by Dee, the Insanity Check (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 652 comments I think slide Sara in for December and Q for March


message 26: by Naomi, the Sanity Check (new)

Naomi (nblackburn) | 932 comments I agree. Do you want to write something up on Author of Month or do you want me to?


message 27: by Dee, the Insanity Check (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 652 comments could you please ;) i'm going to be away from my computer for the next few hours

message 32: by Naomi, the Sanity Check (new)

Naomi (nblackburn) | 932 comments We can also do Lars Kepler under the new rules. Also, Hakan Nesser. Did we do him already?


message 33: by Dee, the Insanity Check (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 652 comments we did do Hakan - in March maybe...


message 34: by Naomi, the Sanity Check (new)

Naomi (nblackburn) | 932 comments Oh, that is right because I tried to get the book then.


message 35: by Dee, the Insanity Check (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 652 comments i only remember cause I bought the audiobook and never listened - but I am right now - not bad, but I have images of Lizzie Borden in my head


message 36: by Naomi, the Sanity Check (new)

Naomi (nblackburn) | 932 comments Which book?


message 37: by Dee, the Insanity Check (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 652 comments Borkmann's Point- the person is an axe murderer and I have the lizzie borden took an axe ditty stuck in my head


message 38: by Martha (new)

Martha (marthas48) I think I bought Mind's Eye for my Kindle, but didn't have time to read it then. I will try to participate, but won't nominate. I'll just try to find a book by chosen authors. I have yet to read one in this genre that I haven't liked ... not that I've read that many.

Kathy | 5 comments I will nominate Maj Sjowall.

Diane S ☔ I'm with the Maj Sjowall group. Tired of Roseanne staring at me.


message 42: by Susan (new)

Susan (SusanThomas) | 146 comments Any interest here in Liza Marklund? I bought Red Wolf this summer and would love to pull it off the shelf.
