I’m not big on change. Trust–after this year (two moves and lots of other unexpected things…) I am all for comfort. But, I realized this past weekend that I slipped out of my comfort zone this weekend and ventured into the realm of unknown authors.

Or, at least unknown to me.

And you know—it hasn’t been all that bad. In fact, I found a few new authors I just might start fangirling over. Here are my picks for this week (in no particular order):
