TGIF at GReads is a weekly meme hosted by GReads. This week’s question asks:
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?
They totally are my celebrities! I remember when I first emailed Jessica Park (do I really need to say again how much I love her?). Her book was the book that made me want to start blogging. So I emailed her, asking if I could
worship interview her for my blog. She replied the same day with an enthusiastic yes. I can’t even tell you guys, I was so freaking excited. She was so friendly and even said she would get her friend to do an interview for me (the friend just happened to be Beautiful Disaster author Jamie McGuire, who was also a sweetheart!). I told my family that I couldn’t believe my favorite author was just like a regular person, friendly and kind with a great sense of humor. I still haven’t met her, but it will happen one day. (Course, she’s probably scared to death of that, what with the enthusiasm with which I stalk her recommend her book.)
Now that I’m on Twitter and Facebook, I get to talk to the authors that I love every day. I’m still surprised when they respond to me, and it never fails to make me a little giddy!
