[Book Blogger Hop] February 9-15th: Author Meet & Greets



Book Blogger Hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to discover and follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend bloggers, and gain followers. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday where there will be a weekly prompt following a bookish question.


Question:

What authors have you met and where? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)

Answer: 

Unfortunately, I don't think I've been to any book signings or anything like that for an author. I have a few author friends who I know online and love so much but I haven't met them in real life. I definitely have a handful of authors I'd love to meet but people typically don't come to Maine to do signings and I can't justify driving to Boston for a book signing right now. Maybe if more authors I know/love come to Portland I can go to a signing one day! I have communicated with quite a lot of authors on social media, and I have a new friend who is a fantastic author and one day I really want to meet her. One day! :)

Thanks for reading!

    1. That's awesome! I have talked to a good chunk of authors through twitter, and I've become friends with one of my new favorite authors which is so cool. I think social media is awesome for many reasons but this is definitely one of the top reasons.

  4. I am in the same boat, I live in a rural part of the UK where authors don't often come for signings. I do know a few online though.

  5. Keep an eye on Print Bookstore in Portland! I know it's still a bit of a haul for you, but they have had some awesome authors in since they opened! :)
