Fast forward a zillion years later, and I'm still a serious fan of romance/erotic romance with a good mix of motivational, mystery, thrillers, and cookbooks thrown in. Despite reading almost anything these days when I have the time, there are certain authors that I read consistently.
These are the people who cause me to go through withdrawal once I've finished a book, having to wait for a year or two before the next release. There's no need to read a blurb or a review because I'm going to skate, drive, fly, crawl to the bookstore, or hit the send button with a blindfold on because I have to have those particular books.
Different things attract me to a particular novelist, but the four biggies are authenticity, heart string pulling, (tears or laughter), suspense, or if I can learn something that's unique and thought-provoking.
What about you? Why are you drawn to a specific writer's books?
BACK IN THE DAYThe other day at the grocery store, two really cool things happened. I was given a bouquet of flowers FREE because I was laughing very loudly with two of the cashiers, (I'm sure he really wanted to me to just leave so everyone could get back to work-lol) and I saw someone in Bell Bottom Jeans.
You may notice that Hot Pants from the70's, Daisy Dukes from the 80's and Short Shorts from 2016 are strikingly similar!
