I read a book a day.  Seriously, and I still manage to run a house and care for my three kids. (It's all about priorities, people! lol)  I've been trading heavily on this site for about 9 months and I'm running out of authors to put on my lists.  I've been through the forum, I've read all the lists and most authors have wound up on my reminder/wish lists.  But I'm at the point where I'm down to books that are rated 3 stars or less.  I know there are authors out there that I've never heard of.  Everytime I camp out at Barnes & Nobles for an afternoon I find someone new I've never heard of.  Usually authors that have only a few books to their credit.  Yet, when I do a genre search here, they never show up. 

I've got hundreds of books stockpiled to read and that will translate into hundreds of credits that will need to be used!  I've been expanding into other genres but paranormal-romance/urban fantasy, etc. is my first love. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I go to Amazon to browse.  And check their banners of recent releases.  Not that I buy from them.  But I do browse and copy the ISBN numbers to search here, at my library, and at my local independent bookstore.

You can try Fantasticfiction.com....search for an author that you like using their author search feature.  Then, when you scroll down to the bottom, it will give you recommendations for other books that you may be interested in.  I do this sometimes, and have found a lot of new reading material (not that I need any..I have tons!).

Hope this helps,
