It’s time again for another Read-a-thon Mini-Challenge and this one is simple. Sorry it’s a little late getting posted but technology fought me all the way on making this feature a reality. I know we’ve all been there once or twice. But I do apologize. So on to the Mini-Challenge…It’s all about sharing your favorite authors and reads. Only with a twist.
Lately I have been thinking about how many foreign authors I have discovered recently and have come to absolutely love. One of my favorite authors is Thrity Umrigar– an author and journalist of Indian descent. I wait for her books like so many did for the next installment of Harry Potter or The Twilight Saga. I cherish each one. Some other favorites of mine are British author Jill Mansell and Australian author Lucinda Brant. If you’ve never read Lucinda Brant’s work, you’re truly missing out. She writes some of the best historical fiction I have ever read and I am so thankful to have discovered her work by winning a copy of one of her books through a giveaway at another book blog. So now with the help of the always generous Lucinda I hope to return the favor to another lucky reader.
Below in the comments simply share a foreign author whose work you adore. I personally am from the United States but we may have readers from all over so just make sure the author you share is from a country other than your own. Tell us why you like them. Are there any books by them in particular that you would recommend? How did you come across their work? The whole point is to share and allow us all to discover a new author that we might otherwise never have been exposed to..to literally open up a whole new world of books for one another.
One lucky commenter will be chosen by random number generator to win a personalized signed copy of Australian author Lucinda Brant’s Midnight Marriage. The giveaway is open INTL and the contest will close July 11th at 11:59pm along with the Read-a-thon. You don’t have to be a part of the Read-a-thon to enter but there is a definite bonus if you are. Good Luck to All and Happy Reading!
