A-Z Challenge Day 5 - E

Today is 'E' day and I am going to do something different today.

I am 'shouting out' about some wonderful books with 'E' in their titles, along with some equally wonderful authors with 'E' in their name.

Let me begin with a dear friend and mentor, author Kay Springsteen.  Kay is a prolific author, so I am sharing a link to her Amazon page -http://www.amazon.com/Kay-Springsteen/e/B004RZUWLG/ref=ntt_athr_dp_pel_3/189-2419707-9266059
but in particular I'd like to draw your attention to two of her novels whith 'E' in the titles.

Elusive Echoes can be found here -


and Lifeline Echoes can be found here - http://www.amazon.com/Lifeline-Echoes-Kay-Springsteen/dp/1461091136/ref=lp_B004RZUWLG_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1333620769&sr=1-3

You may be forgiven for assuming someone with such a flowing and apparently gentle writing style will produce stories full of pace, impact, intrigue and emotion that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat, but you'd be wrong.
If you've not come across Kay's books before, then please don't delay, give yourself a special treat.


I know! I know! Lindsay Downs, does not have an 'E' in it any where, but her wonderful stories about Emily Dahill and Dekota do.
Visit http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=Lindsay+Downs+Emily+Dahill and you will find information about three of Lindsay's books here.
What is so special about Lindsay's books?  She writes fast-paced, sharp, tough, miltiary mysteries that will captivate you because her main protagonist is a collie-dog!  Yes, I did say 'collie-dog'!
To assume any story written from the point of view of a dog equalls 'twee' is a massive mistake.  Lindsay Downs is fast making a name for herself and her wonderfully quirky writer's voice.


Return Engement http://www.amazon.com/Return-Engagement-Elaine-Cantrell/dp/1603139990/ref=sr_1_5?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1333621489&sr=1-5 
was the fist of Elaine Cantrell's books I read, since then I have enjoyed several more.

Once again, Elaine is yet another example that tough, sharp, 'on the edge of your seat' stories can still be 'sweet' and/or 'inspirational' as is her latest book,
The Sentence http://www.amazon.com/The-Sentence-ebook/dp/B007ND7F8W/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1333621512&sr=1-3


I have randomly picked three of my favourite authors to share with you today, I have so many more, too many to include today.  Keep coming back and one day soon I'll share a few more.

There are nearly 1700 participants this year and you'll find a list HERE  

Who is your favourite author and why?

Thanks for those recommendations - I'll look into them for my Kindle. P.S. do you realise you still have Captcha turned on?

Sherry Gloag said...

Thanks for coming by, Sally, and especially for letting me know Captcha was still on. Hopefully it's fixed now. Its recent proliferation has certainly cut down the number of comments I leave, so, again, thanks for the heads up.

Simon Kewin said...

Interesting approach. I wouldn't have picked up any of those books. Maybe I should? Thanks for dropping by mine.

Sherry Gloag said...

Simon, thanks for dropping by. I've visited several new (to me) blogs so far in this challenge and have come across some new and interesting reads to look out for, so thought I'd share a few of my favourites, too. :-)
