Everyone knows the big names. Poll 100 readers about who they have on their auto-buy list and nearly all of them will include the same 10-15 authors. Another 15-20 authors will make it onto 50% of the lists. Those authors have the marketing savvy to match their writing talent.
But what about those who have great stories to tell, but who haven’t been seen the break out success their stories deserve? My favorite example is Helen Gabriel. I loved her stuff. Unfortunately, even with 3 novellas under her belt, I never hear anything about her. Is she even writing anymore? I surely hope so. But I can’t find a website or blog for her anywhere. Did we let a good author slip through the cracks?
My question is: What new/little known authors do you feel deserve more press? Whether you promote them here or on your own website/blogs, please include their name, website, and favorite story.
