Follow Friday - July 22, 2011

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It's a way to connect with fellow bloggers! First, blog about Follow Friday and weekly question, then leave your name on the Linky list, and visit as many blogs as you can on the list and tell them "Hi!" in their comments on their FF post. You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

Q. Name 3 authors that you would love to sit down and spend an hour or a meal with just talking about either their books or get advice on writing from?

I wouldn't want to have a meal probably, it would definitely be wasted. There is no way in the world that I could sit with one of my favorite authors and be able to stuff my face. (I am a huge foodie, so that is saying a lot for me.) Nora Roberts has always been one of my favorite authors. I have one large and loaded bookshelf full of her books. I would love to just see where all the characters come from and how she can flip from the super romances right into the awesome paranormals she write. Another that will probably a favorite for this is, of course, J.K. Rowling. Not only is she the birthplace of a world I know I am meant to live in, but she also is quite an amazing person. I've heard her say she's still afraid of being broke and going hungry to this day. I don't know what she's actually like, but I get the most amazing feeling of humbleness when I see her. A third author is actually really hard to choose. There's so many after my top two that it's a very difficult decision. So for the sake of this meme, I'll go with Cassandra Clare. This woman actually cracks me up in her books, blog, and on Twitter. I literally laugh out loud with the quirks she puts in her books, but it's seeing her interact with us and other fans that wins me over. I love when there's an author that loves to be as involved with their fans as much as they are their writing. :)

Great choices! I would love to sit down with any of these authors. I agree, I probably would be much to busy to bother with eating!

I also chose JK Rowling as one of mine. And, I chose Cassandra Clare as one of the others. ;) I've never read any of Nora Roberts's books. I've heard good things, though.

Hmm... I don't think I'd have a problem eating with an author. I think food is a good conversation starter >.> or maybe that's just because I like to talk about food. Hello fellow foodie!

I'm already following, but just though I'd stop by to see who you picked! I'd love to meet all three of those authors! I have a ton of Nora Roberts books too, I think she is my favorite romance novelist. I'm sure you've read the Quinn brothers' stories, but YUM-MY! Anyway, you can check out who I picked out over at Fuzzy.Coffee.Books!
Have a great weekend!
