January’s Author of the Month: Christopher Smith!

Each month during 2013, I am going to highlight a new author.  The reason?  There are so many awesome authors out there that I have been dying to read and for whatever reason, never get to.  So I figured what a better way to fix this problem than spotlight those new-to-me authors, learn more about their work and read at least one of their works.  The authors that I choose will be ones that I have not yet read, but have been intrigued by the synopsis  of their books, been exposed to on Facebook, Twitter or via word of mouth from friends.  My goal is to share spotlights of these author’s books, perhaps an interview with them, and review at least one of their works.  I would LOVE for anyone who would like to participate to jump on board.  Please feel free to share your thoughts on each month’s author and if you read and review one of that author’s books, please share a link.  Even if the author of the month is not new to you, please share your thoughts and feelings on their work.

Who is the lucky author for January?  It is someone that I have been following on Facebook for quite some time.  His books sound excellent and very intriguing.  I even have a few on my Kindle that I have been itching to read, but have yet to get to.  Who is that person?  Christopher Smith!  In the coming days I will be sharing spotlights of his fabulous sounding books, excerpts, etc. I may also hold a poll for you to help me decide which of his books to indulge in, lol.  If you have read any of Mr. Smith’s work, please share what you have read and your thoughts on those works.
