A little help, please

If you've read Searching for Spice, would you please tell me what other author you would compare my style to?I'm participating in a multi-author (100+ authors!) booksigning at the Mall of America in Minneapolis next month, and the sponsors are compiling comparison charts. I need to send in the names of authors that people are familiar with that could compare to my book. You know, "If you like XX's books, you'll love Searching for Spice by Megan DiMaria."

Can you help me? Do you have any suggestions?

Actually, Quaker Summer had a little bit of the same feel. first person, humorous, but with a deeper message.

Megan DiMaria said...

Wow. Kay, thanks for the suggestion. Lisa Samson is one of my favorite authors.

I've been overwhelmed with the email responses I've gotten from friends.

In case you're interested, here's the rest of the list:

Robin Jones Gunn

Neta Jackson

Karen Kingsbury

Robin Lee Hatcher

Allison Bottke

Trish Perry

Kristin Billerbeck

Whew. If you could only imagine how awesome and humbling it is to be compared to those talented ladies.

If you like...people to think you have good taste, read Meeg!!!!!
