I am the only employee of a small bookstore in my town.  The owner (my boss) knows that I read paranormal romances and wants to boost up that section of our store.  We have a bunch of people that read them that come in, but our selection is limited.  So, if you could recommend some authors or even specific books for us, that would be great!  We already have the Kenyon and JR Ward, but most everything else would be a help!  I know that between all of us we can come up with a good list - much better than the one that I can come up with on my own!  Thanks in advance for all your help!

There is a red sticky thread entitled Paranormal Series  here in the forum.  I have attached a link to it.  It is probably the most complete list of paranormal series you'll find here.

What about the YA?  Melissa Marr, Rachel Vincent, Kelley Armstrong, Lisa McMann.  There is a big demand from the Twilight readers.

YA paranormal is a great idea, not only are they big with actual YA readers but with adults as well- plus I've noticed mothers & daughters both buying the same book to read together. From what I know is great and what sells well, I don't think you can go wrong with Nalini Singh, Kresley Cole, Lilith Saintcrow, Keri Arthur and Patricia Briggs.
