For this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, the theme is auto-buy authors. I don’t have 10 authors that I would consider auto-buy, mostly because I’d be broke if I bought every book released by all of my favorite authors. There are four authors I buy almost all, if not all, of their new releases. I’m too impatient to wait for my library to get a copy and have said copy be available. So, I’ve realized that through the years I have ended up buying basically all of the books these author put out.
Usually, when I’m finishing a new release from one of these authors, I look to see when the next book is expected to be released. If there’s already a pre-order going on I’ll do a pre-order. I also follow these authors on Instagram, Twitter, and/or receive emailed newletters from them. That way, if they don’t have a pre-order available when I’m finishing the latest and greatest, I know when the pre-order goes up later on down the road. There’s not much better than opening my Kindle in the morning and seeing a brand new story by a favorite author waiting for me.
Now don’t get me wrong, there are other authors I will sometimes pre-order. Depending on my current financial situation at the time and how anxious I am for the book. But I have become the most consistent with the above authors.
Since I am quite confident I am not the only avid reader who has to keep a her book spending in check, I’m curious to see who others choose as their auto-buy authors. I’m sure I’ll be finding a few new-to-me authors today as I peruse the lists of others.
