It would be so cool to meet J.K. Rowling. Of course, I may faint. So it wouldn't really turn out well. I am so bad with meeting authors lol. All the book signings I've been to have been really awkward experiences XD

Cass (Words on Paper) said...

Hmm...probably Holly Cupala. She's just SUCH a sweetheart, and she seems really nice and adorable. :) Ooh, and Jackson Pearce. I haven't read anything from her yet, but I love her vlogs. XD

Thanks for the contest!

Teril said...

I would like to meet Kim Harrison because she has such a versatile genre cover and I have thus far enjoyed all her series.

.Ambur. said...

I would love to meet Cassandra Clare! :D
I have no idea what I would say to her though, I think I'd probably totally freeze up and be all 'hi' *insert huge dorky grin* :D I'd probably just try and not go totally fangirl on her :D
Thanks for the giveaway :D

At the moment, Richelle Mead. I would ask her about her research and why she chose Romanian Folklore and stuff about her characters!

Enbrethiliel said...


I'd love to meet Neal Shusterman and ask him how he gets his ideas. (Really, really cliche, I know--but it's true! He's one of the most original YA authors EVER!!!)

Kulsuma said...

I want to meet soo many authors! Top of my list are J K Rowling, Anthony Horowitz and Scott Westerfeld. I would ask them where they get all their ideas and ask them what they're going to write next.

Tessa Quin said...

Cassandra Clare. I'd like to pick her brains about how to get in contact with agents (she got one through contacts! And probably with a good query, too). So my question would be: How did you, as a pre-author, chat with Barry Goldblatt when you first met him at the conference?

brandileigh2003 said...

That is sooo hard! Probably Elizabeth Isaacs to chat it up.

Ana Norte said...

I guess... Richelle Mead!! I just looooved VA and I really want to make some questions to her! Hahah

Llehn said...

I'd love to meet Neil Gaiman. I would love to ask if he would marry me :D Does that count as a question?


Anonymous said...

There so many authors I'd love to meet, but I think I'd pick Stephen King. I'd like to ask him what it's like to be him? How he feels about being one of the most famous writers ever. And I'd like to ask him what drew him to scary stories in the first place?


*Jam* said...

I'd love to meet Marion Zimmer Bradley but she's already gone... And also JK Rowling but wouldn't ask anything, just to get my books signed! =)

Jill of The O.W.L. said...

I'd love to meet Lois Duncan because I grew up reading all her books!

I'd ask her how just came up with the idea for Daughters of Eve.

sweet_heart_52_9 said...

I would want to meet Lurlene Mcdaniel and I think I would ask her where does she get the strength to write the types of books she writes.

Aleksandra said...

I'd love to meet Neil Gaiman! I love his books :) As for question, I don't know, I'll probably just pester him about how much I love his books ;) or I might ask him which of his books is his favorite - if he can even choose - I know I can't ;)

Thanks for the giveaway!

Dovile said...

I'd like to meet J.K. Rowling. I'd like to ask her what she is writing at the moment, and when we can expect it in print:)

Scoot said...

I am going to agree with Dovile! Meeting J.K. Rowling would be awesome. I would ask her to tell me a story from the HP world that she hasn't published... like maybe a scene that was cut from the book come editing time? That would be awesome.


sablelexi said...

I would also like to talk to talk to J.K. Rowling. I'd ask her if she was really writing a Harry Potter encyclopedia like the rumors said.

Tina (Book Couture) said...

I'm surprised no one has said Suzanne Collins yet. The Hunger Games are one of my top faves, but I'd ask her: What are the names of Katniss' children?
I've wanted to know that ever since reading the epilogue.

Badass Bookie said...

Thansk for the weekly giveaway guys! You guys are great reviewers :P ( Just read a recent one) As for which author...hard one but I think I will go with Cassandra Clare and I would totally ask her where she gets all her witty jokes and punchlines for her characters from!!! Pure Genius! I recommend you guys to read her :P

I would meet J.K. Rowling. I owe much of my love of reading to Harry Potter. I doubt I would even bother reading if I hadn't discovered Harry that fateful day in 2nd grade lol. Then I would meet Stephen King...because I think he must be crazy to have written what he does.
