Top Ten Tuesday: Author Bucket List

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.  This week they ask us to share lists on the following:

March 28: Top Ten Authors I’m Dying To Meet / Ten Authors I Can’t Believe I’ve Met  (some other “meeting authors” type spin you want to do)

So for this week’s list I am going to do some shameless bragging.  Only a little bit though as I’ve not actually met that many authors.  So this week I am going to split the list between met and want to meet.

Five authors I’ve met and five authors I want to meet!

  1.  Sherrilyn Kenyon- Met & Want to Meet:  Yes, that is right folks I have actually met my favorite author and made a complete fool of myself… It was so cool though and she was such a nice person!  I would also love to go to another signing if she ever comes back to the area.
  2. Deborah Harkness Deborah Harkness – Want to Meet:  I loved the All Souls Trilogy.  Absolutely some of my favorite books hands down.  It would be so cool to actually get to meet her in person.

  3. John Scalzi John Scalzi – Met: No picture with this author because when I met him I had only read one of his books and was not as big of a fan as I am now…  Stupid Amy…  So I guess Mr. Scalzi should also be added to the list of authors I would like to meet again.  Such a big fan now.  Also another really nice author!
  4. J.R. Ward J.R. Ward – Want to Meet: I basically want to meet this author to hear her swear like a sailor.  It cracks me up that she uses such foul language.  Also, I love her books.
  5.  Sylvia Day – Met!: Got to meet Ms. Day at BEA last year.  She is such a sweet woman and took the time to speak with everyone in line and take pictures with them.  Truly a stand-up author!
  6. Jacqueline Rhoades Jaqueline Rhoades – Want to Meet: This is my favorite indie author and friend on Facebook.  Someday I hope to meet Jackie in person!
  7.  Justin Cronin – Met:  What an awesome man this is!  Not a great picture but I did catch him in a booth at BEA.  It was amazing to get the opportunity to meet Mr. Cronin.
  8. Darynda Jones Darynda Jones – Want to Meet:  Sigh, someday… I am friends with her on Facebook if that counts for anything and have interacted with her there.
  9. Katarina Bivald Katarina Bivald – Met:  Not a widely known author but I think I should receive bonus points as she is from Sweeden.  Another sweet woman who I met at BEA last year.  Just recently got around to reading her only book The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend.
  10. Andy Weir Andy Weir – Want to Meet: How could the author of The Martian not be on my list?  I’ve pimped his book enough! I love his story as to how his book came to being published.  I also follow him online and he just seems like a cool guy.  I would love to meet him someday.

There you have this week’s list.  How about you?  What authors have you met or would like to meet?

  1. I met Deborah Harkness and Justin Cronin at my very first BEA in 2012! It was completely lucky because I had no clue what I was doing that first conference. ;) And I have not met John Scalzi, nor have i read his books… yet, but he did come to the bookstore I work at recently to do a signing. So I picked up a copy of Red Shirts, because that totally seems up my alley. Love that you met Katarina Bivald- Readers of the Broken Wheel Recommend was one of my favorite books last year. You totally get extra points since she’s from Sweden!
