BTT: Blogging Authors

btt button

Suggested by Barbara H.:

A comment on someone else’s BTT question this week inspired this question:

Do you read any author’s blogs? If so, are you looking for information on their next project? On the author personally? Something else?

My answer:
I do read author blogs. Elizabeth Scott. Susan Beth Pfeffer. Sarah Miller. Robin Brande. Cynthia Leitich Smith. John Green. Orson Scott Card. Sarah Dessen. Carrie Jones. Shannon Hale. I probably read even more than that actually. I'm sure I've forgotten one or two. Or three. Or four.

I read blogs. Hundreds of them. End of story. Sometimes these bloggers are authors. Sometimes they're not. I read them partly to keep up with their latest work. But more to the point, I read them because they're interesting, entertaining, relevant, fun.

How do you have time to read all the books you read and read blogs too? I am in awe!

I love reading blogs about reading and books and authors!! As long as they're interesting I'll keep coming back for more.

I love reading the author blogs. Great links by the way - off to check them out.

I get about 75% of my reading suggestions from blogs -- both reviewers and my fellow authors' blogs. Definitely a great resource and plus I think you can tell a lot about an author's novels by reading their blog.
