I started reading Linnea Sinclair by accident - the way I start reading most new writers (except those I know, of course!).
I'm a browser. I'm not organized in my book buying (or anything else, for that matter), I tend to scan the shelves for titles or covers or author names or back cover copy that grab me. I don't even read the first paragraph -
I've been like this for a long time. When I went to university, that's basically how I did my research. I'd say, okay, I need to research Rembrandt. Then I'd go to the stacks where Rembrandt books were and browse until I found what I thought I might need.
Linnea Sinclair was a very lucky find because I LOVE her books. I've read them all two or three or even four times but there aren't any more. The books I love - Accidental Goddess, Gabriel's Ghost, Finders Keepers, and now, Games of Command - have a few things in common. They're science fiction, they're political, they have great romances and kick-ass heroines. I wish she'd written a dozen books like this.
The good news? I won't have to wait for another year for the next book - Down Home Zombie Blues is out in October. It's on my calendar.
Definitely try these books, though, because they're fabulous.
