Follow Friday #3



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?

Wow Three authors!?!  I have a few in mind but really when I think to sit down with them, me being shy, I kinda go blank at what would I ask them.  I am sometimes not good at the talking thing.  I guess if I were to pick it would be an author of the genre I like to write most (children's) so I would say Neil Gaiman, Rick Riordan, and J.K. Rowling.  I think I picked the three hardest to probably get in contact with. lol

Well, I do have a few favorite authors I can think of right off the top of my head, Barbara Delinsky, Jodi Thomas, Kristin Hannah, Debbie Macomber...opps that is four, and I was about to add a few more.. Each has their own style of writing, and right now I am reading an author for the first time and I am loving his book, he is David Baldacci, and the book is a fun summer read, "One Summer." I understand he usually writes Suspense/Thriller books, which is why I've never read him before, but this one is more on the Chick-lit genre.

I chose Neil Gaiman as well. Do you read his blog? It's great, very witty and insightful. He's not afraid to share details of his life with his readers.

Have a great weekend!

I'm with you on the shy thing. Let's have a nice twitter conversation instead of face to face.

Here's my FF: http://www.stuckinbooks.com/2011/07/follow-friday-7-22-11.html

Rick Riordan! Awesome choice! I'd love to meet him. Supposedly he lives somewhere in Texas. Perhaps I'll bump into him at once point or another. It's not THAT big a state, right? LoL! Awesome choices and have a great weekend! You can see who I chose at Fuzzy.Coffee.Books!

Hi. Happy Belated FF from a new follower. Interesting choices. I just started reading Neil Gaiman's 'American Gods' last week and I love it. Am suprised that more people haven't mentioned him (you're the first I've seen so far).
