Bacon, Big Game, and Blues–3 New Authors for You to Explore

I met three other lovely authors at the B&N signing yesterday, and I wanted to introduce you to them.

Ann Fisher wrote BETSY’S FIRST BREAKFAST, a picture book, about her childhood pet pig, Betsy.  Betsy’s first breakfast is not as bacon, but as a guest of honor at the table.  Ann told me that this is the first in a series of books about life on a farm, and they appear to be very sweet, lighthearted stories.

I like the mother smacking the boy’s hand, while the family is saying grace.

Lyn Gray wrote another picture book, THE GREAT HUNTER.  It’s several years younger than his reading level, but Thor has already read it a few times because he likes the art and the story is very cute.  Annie is a barky, little terrier, who is trying to catch big game, but can’t quite be quiet enough to keep from alerting them to her stalking.  I resemble this remark and could easily identify with Annie.

Since I have a bouncy dog, I especially enjoyed Annie.

Kartika R. Anderson and I shared a table, and she was lovely.  She brought her mini-memoir about defeating depression through art, TURNING BLUE INTO BLUE.  I haven’t had a chance to sit down with her book yet, but I’m looking forward to it.  She’s getting excellent reviews on Amazon, and you know how much I love a memoir.  Kartika is going to have a signing in Chicago next month, and I really wish I could head up there for that!

Kartika brought some of her art for display and it was beautiful. I am so glad she started painting!

Check out these authors.  All three have more works in the work, and I think you’ll be glad you took the time to investigate.
