Elite Romance: New To Me Authors

So today this is where we discuss my favorite new to me authors that I have discovered this past year and there are so many great authors that I took a chance on and I am so glad that I did!!! And I want to share my favorites of the  year. Its always such a heartwarming experience to discover fresh voices!!!

Olivia Waite

This is a very new author to me and when she brought out “Celestial Mechanics” I was addicted to her style of writing. Its probably the most deep and beautiful writing I have EVER read in my life to be honest. And hopefully this F/F romance will bring out more in other traditional published books ahead.

About Olivia Waite

Olivia Waite writes erotic, historical, and paranormal romance -- sometimes all three at once. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with the love of her life and their mischievous miniature dachshund.

Mia Sheridan

When I read Dante’s Storm, I was stunned by this author’s work, there was such a unique way in how she penned this story and I can’t wait to read more from her.

About Mia Sheridan

Shayla Black

I read her earlier this year and was delightfully surprised in her voice and I am eager to pick more from her this next year.

About Shayla Black

For twenty years, she’s written contemporary, erotic, paranormal, and historical romances via traditional, independent, foreign, and audio publishers.

Raised an only child, Shayla occupied herself with lots of daydreaming, much to the chagrin of her teachers. In college, she found her love for reading and realized that she could have a career publishing the stories spinning in her imagination. Though she graduated with a degree in Marketing/Advertising and embarked on a stint in corporate America to pay the bills, her heart has always been with her characters. She’s thrilled that she’s been living her dream as a full-time author for the past eight years.

Shayla currently lives in North Texas with her wonderfully supportive husband, her daughter, and two spoiled tabbies. In her “free” time, she enjoys reality TV, reading, and listening to an eclectic blend of music.

Mia Hopkins

I was able to read Thirsty this year and boy was that book so so good!! I really adored how the hero was more at the center of the story and seeing his POV was so fantastic. I can’t wait to see what she does in the future. I am a NEW LOVING fan of hers.
