This is my reading list of authors whom I will be using for my first chapter research project. For those who did not read my F post, I am planning to read as many first chapters by bestselling authors to see if I can come up with some magic formula to help myself write the best first chapter that I can.
So basically, I have taken all the books from either my own or my sisters bookcases. I am starting off with these and I will include more as time goes on. I don’t think I can make a proper study in just a few days. It might take some time. Sorry if anyone is disappointed. The authors are also from different genres because I like diversity, even though I write romance.
Johanna Lindsay – Historical Romance
Madeline Baker – Historical Romance
Christine Feehan – Paranormal Romance
Gena Showalter – Paranormal Romance
Linsay Sands – Historical and Paranormal Romance
Jacquelyn Frank – Paranormal Romance
Janet Evanovich – Mystery
John Grisham – Legal Thriller
Peter James – Crime Fiction
Steven King – Horror
J.K. Rowling – Children’s Literature
Stephenie Meyer – Young Adult
J.R.R. Tolkien - Fantasy
So that is it for now. I will probably be adding more as I go along, but I have a ton of books at my disposal so I should learn something from this. I will be sharing whatever I learn, but it may take a while. Sorry.
