Hi dear friends,
Today is a day I waited impatiently as I get to nominate the best fiction authors I have read this year!
Both have already been nominated in another category but they were so good each in his own way that they deserve the title of Best Fiction Author.
The first winner is James Cudney alias Jay
His book “Father Figure” already won “the best surprise” but truly it is Jay who was a revelation.
I know Jay that I will make you blush, again, but I am so not sorry! Truly I fell in love with James’s writing. I was totally immersed in his book and bonded on a deep level with his characters.
He has it all: characters extremely well fleshed out, intricate plot with twists you never see coming, beautiful writing that makes you “be” in the story and see, smell, touch everything like the main characters.
My only regret is not being able to have read Braxton Campus Mystery as I had too many ARCs on my plate and new releases I had awaited for months! But the first title is already on my Kindle and I am not despairing! I swear I will read it before April 2019 😀
Now James is not only a fantastic writer he also is a fantastic blogger (you know that I miss your 365 days of posting Jay) and a wonderful human being! If you want to know him better you can read his interview on the blog! He had been so generous with his answers *and yes I went a little bit overboard with my questions* that we cut the interview into seven parts published daily!
Here below are the links in chronological order
The second winner is Anonymous and I am sad to say that I can’t reach him to let him now how deeply he impacted me!
Well that’s not true as he contacted me to offer an ARC of his second book but he contacted me …anonymously duh!
I know it can seem weird to choose someone you can’t really talk to or reach to as a favorite author but his writing was so powerful, so perfect so… that I fell head over heels for his characters and their tragic fate.
I still believe he is a “he” but yes it could be a “she”. Only…the writing feels male. Don’t ask I would not be able to explain but maybe you grasp what I mean.
Anonymous or not he is a force to be reckoned with and I really urge you to read his books.
Who knows, maybe one day I’ll have answers to some questions 😉
Now it is your turn! Tell me who is your favorite fiction author read in 2018!
Thanks for reading!
