Comments for Weekly Geeks 2010-8: What Is It About That Author

I'm a Weekly GeekWeekly Geeks 2010-8: What Is It About That Author: 03/06/10

I ask my followers on my blog E.H. On Books N' More a few weeks ago to tell me about why they love the authors that they do.

For example:

  1. Tell your readers what is it about "an" author that you are most passionate about, that have you coming back for more from them, following their every blog post – literally blackmailing people to read their books?
  2. Who are some of your all time favourite authors?
  3. And what is it about them that makes you keep going back for more?

There is no "THAT" Author for me:

Until last month I had never been to an author event. One that I would have loved to go to though, was the launch party for Calamity Jack. So I guess the three Hales: Shannon, Dean and illustrator Nathan (of no relation) would together count. I have a complete and total literary crush on Jack. But of those three, the one I follow most closely is the illustrator. I love his blog.

But blackmailing people to read a book? No. I would never do it. I hate being on the receiving end of that sort of behavior. I get it all the time with Harry Potter, the Twilight Books and Jane Austen. Please book friends and family just accept that I am not interested in those books or authors. I am not going to love them as passionately as you do.

That's not to say I don't have favorite authors. I've talked about them before on this blog:
