TopTen Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week is about authors and those you would like to meet, have met, ect.

Authors I Have Met

Last year I was lucky enough to attend BookIt Con down in south Jersey. It was such an awesome event and I got to meet a bunch of great authors I have read and some I haven’t – yet.

–  I actually walked in with Emma Chase not realizing who it was until later when I went to her spot to get my books signed. She was super friendly and fun to chat with.

–  Karole Cozzo and Sandy Hall were together and are as sweet as you would imagine by their books.

–  I got to talk to Mia Siegert who is actually an alumni of the college I went to so that was pretty cool.

–  After the signings and panels the VIP ticket holders (ME!) Got to go and have dinner with the some of the authors. I had Kathryn Holmes, Charlotte Huang and Lee Kelly at my table and they were all awesome. I totally bonded (maybe only in my mind) with Lee Kelly over How I Met Your Mother and other things. This reminds me to read their books sooner rather than later already!!

Authors I would Like to Meet

As far as Authors I would love to meet that would be some of my favorites including Rainbow Rowell, Lauren Oliver, Tana French, Kasie West and Emily Giffin. I almost got the chance to meet Rainbow Rowell and Lauren Oliver at BookCon two years ago but missed them both which sucked.

What authors have you met or want to meet?

  1. Oh wow, that’s awesome that you met Emma Chase and the way that you met her is cool. I shared an elevator with Susan Elizabeth Phillips and walked past a smoking Nora Roberts and both times, I almost fainted. Haha. I love meeting authors. They’re always so nice!

    I’d love to meet Kasie West and Rainbow Rowell too. Their books rock!

  2. I’ve met a lot of authors because of BEA and other cons I’ve been to. Rainbow Rowell is super friendly and nice at her signings.

    The weirdest meet though was A.S. King. We were stuck in a looong line in the bathroom at BEA and were trying to figure out what stalls were open and finding paper towels.

    I didn’t know it was her until someone behind me started freaking out. lol But she was awesome and so friendly.

  3. Oh how I would love to meet Rainbow Rowell! I just love her and would love a chance to talk to her. Or just sit and listen. 🙂 I think she’s amazing. I met Lauren Oliver at Yallfest a couple years ago. I hadn’t read anything by her (still haven’t, actually) but it was one of those things where the timing was right, it was the end of the day, and I decided to squeeze in one more signing.

  4. I love that you met Emma Chase and that she was such a wonderful person to talk with. Somehow I am not surprised by that. I have met some wonderful authors as well. I have met Jill Shalvis, Emily March (and I met her before reading her books and now I want to read everything she has written. I also have met Codi Gary, and she was so nice and funny. I do love meeting authors and how nice so many of them are.
