I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

T.G.I.F (37)

TGIF is a fun little feature hosted by Ginger @ GReads! Every week we re-cap what has happened on the blog plus Ginger asks a question for us to answer. This week’ question is: Authors Are Our Celebrities: Have you ever contacted an author you admired? How did that experience go? If not, which author would you love to have a chat with?

As always Ginger asked a very good question.

Love this question.

Honestly yes!!!! I’ve exchanged emails, tweets, and chatted on Facebook with authors I’ve admired, and I’ve even met a few. How I went about that? Blogging about books makes it super easy to interact with authors. And praise the powers that be for the internet, seriously what would I do without that? Websites make it easy email an author who loves to hear about how much you enjoyed their books.

Shelly Laurenston (I swear I talk about her in every post) I think I might a little crush on her. When I first started to read her books I quickly sent off an email saying how much I LOVED her books and I do. Every last one of them, there isn’t a book of hers that I didn’t enjoy.

Facebook and twitter are a great way to interact with authors. The amazing Jennifer Laurens who wrote the Heavenly series is seriously sweet and super nice to fans.

To meet authors are who I would go fangirl for, forget singers and actors. In my world authors are a big deal. It’s an amazing feeling I get when I contact an author and I get a reply.

LM Preston, isn’t s well known as some other authors but she super nice and approachable. We’ve exchanged some emails when she sent me her book Bandits to review and she did a guest post on The Bo0ki3 (click here for review). Recently I’ve had the pleasure of meeting her at BEA and she was wonderful. It was a brief chat but the next day she contacted me on Facebook and we talked for a while and before signing off she told me to drop her a line anytime she was online.
