I went with authors I know and like. However, I have a lot of authors I follow. Keep in mind, I read the freebies looking for new authors and I check (constantly) GoodReads and MobileForums for recommendations.
In addition, I spend a lot of time trolling through Smashwords, I have found several/a lot of authors that I now read avidly wherever I can find them.
