First up is Cherie Priest AKA cmpriest. I was just talking to a friend about how much I enjoyed her Eden Moore (Four and Twenty Black Birds, Wings to the Kingdom, and Not Flesh Nor Feathers) series. Mostly because I got to say, "C'mon, they blow up zombies in the third book of the series with fireworks! How cool is that?" Actually, not really. I really enjoyed the series a lot. It is Southern horror at its best. I mentioned that I was getting off my butt to finally read her book Dreadful Skin about an Irish werewolf hunting nun. Well, I have and I love it! So, if you haven't read any of the books mentioned, do so!
Second is Seanan McGuire AKA seanan_mcguire. I had the pleasure of meeting her at BayCon 2008 while I was doing panels with her. She is a multi-talented lass. Singer and author. I accidentally walked into one of her concerts at BayCon and didn't leave. Bought her CD Stars Fall Home before I left. I'm finally getting around to listening to it and I love it. She's got a wonderful voice and a wicked sense of humor. I can't wait for her next CD to come out, too.
I know there's more to pimp but these are the two people who talent I've experienced in the last two days. So, feel free to pimp your stuff here in comments.
