Today I’m taking part in the Book Blogger Hop, a weekly hop hosted by Billy B at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer (originally created by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books). You can see the hop schedule here.
“Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.”
Question of the Week: What authors have you met and where?
(submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)
I live in a small town in the middle of a rural area, so book signings and launches are very rare here. I am frequently invited to launch parties that take place in New York. 🙁
However, I did get the chance to meet best-selling crime author John Connolly, who writes the ‘Charlie Parker’ detective novels. He came to my local Waterstones for a signing event back in 2012 and I managed to get a brand new signed copy of The Wrath of Angels. He seemed like a lovely guy and he had a rather delicious Irish accent!
Have you ever met an author?
