We had so much fun with the first Featured member Author read we're going to do it again.

This thread is open for anyone, including the author themslelf or any group member to put a post in on what's good and what looks good off of our list of Books written by Member-Authors.

All books that are on the list prior to us initiating the vote are eligible for a vote, even if they are not mentioned on this thread. This is just a place for anyone to give some good press about some writing from our own A/A Aficionados members that we may not know much about.

Please save any negative comments for the discussion thread, or your review.

Feel free to post links to websites, other reviews or just say what's on your mind in support of the fantastic body of work our Member Authors have created.

Wait...what?! Janny Wurts is a member? I've got several of her books on my to-read pile. Sounds good to me Curmudgeon.

Thank you! It was close, and tough choice, according to the Dirk Cussler. I was able to meet him and Clive this past weekend. Very cool event! Made some great contacts.

Your Welcome. That had to be cool, meeting Clive and Dirk Cussler. I'm glad you had fun with it. It's better to have notoriety than be notorious ... I think... though that's arguable.

Okay, I know I've come up short adding the websites of all of our members authors. I had wanted to get something up for every member author (including those who had not posted something for themselves here) before we did another group read...but alas... the effort has been "Overtaken by events" as we said in the Navy when emerging tasking took us away from scheduled events. j

Anyway, It's been a long time since we've done a Featured Author Group Read. (Thanks again to Steve Trotter and Resurrected: An Adam Wolf Thriller as our first Featured Member-Author for a Group read.

I'd like to have another Featured Member-Author Group read before Christmas, so, I may not get everyone's websites and other information about their book here (please help and post your own if it's not here.)

I will continue posting author-book info here as we go.

Stand By for Details about the next Featured Member-Author Group Read

comming soon! (very soon).

What happened with this? Are we going to have another Featured Author Group Read any time soon?...inquiring minds want to know :)

The Pirate Ghost (Formerly known as the Curmudgeon) (PirateGhost) | 5323 comments Mod
actually, I'm glad you asked. As I take the time to type this, we are working on revising this format to be, what we hope will be, more effective and interesting.

Coming soon, stay tuned!

(and sorry for the delay... my normal life has kind of been OBE for a while...that's a nifty Navy anagram for "Overtaken By Events."

Okay, I am working on a post for the changes... but, you know me...why use a $5 word when you can buy one for $20...and use lots of em!

We will have this sorted out within the next couple of days and I'll lay out the changes so we can get the next book selection underway!

I am sorry for the delays guys.

For the latest change, see the tread titled "Book of the Month!" or the Member Author Book of the Month MABOM or Ma-Boom! Thread... we'll lay it all out for you guys.
