Who's awesome? Well, you are of course!

Recently, I was asked during an interview if I knew of any authors to watch for. I have to admit that I was squirming in my seat in excitement.  Here was a topic that I knew something about.  However, after the interview was over, I thought, "Well, crap!" I left out so many awesome authors that deserved a mention.  I've decided to remedy that the best that I can, so here are some of my picks for awesomeness:
Urban Fantasy: Mark Rice, Jay Taylor
YA Fantasy: M.J. Webb
Human Drama: Tracy James Jones
Sci-fi: Colin Chadwick
Sci-fi erotica: Andrew Harding
Erotica: Melissa Craig
Military Drama: David McCoy and Lynn Hallbrooks (writing team)
Historical fiction: Zoe Saadia, Tina Boscha
Non-Fiction: Kevin Swarbrick
Psychological Thriller: Michael Lorde
Police drama: Derek Blass
Romance: Regina Puckett, Marla Blowers, Sandy Wolters, J. Sterling, C.J. Ellisson, Karen Rose Smith, Lynn Hubbard
Poetry: Ben Ditmars, Richard Weatherly
Drama: D.A. Graystone
Guide books: Alan Tucker, Jeff L. Dawson, Siggy Buckley
Fiction: Faith Mortimer
Children's books: Martha Rodriguez
Mystery: J.D. Mader
Two unpublished authors to keep an eye out for are Jeremy Emling and Blue Remy.  I have read both of their work, and was very impressed.

I know that this is a very long list, and I'm sure that I will think of more people later, but this will give you a good start on some new books to try.
