This week’s Booking Through Thursday question is:
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?
There’s not many authors I know who blog. However, there are two that stand out for me:
Meg Waite Clayton – Basically her blog has other authors guest blogging on their experience in writing and publishing their first novel. The guest posts are excellent, especially the recent one from Jamie Ford, author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet.
Elizabeth Emerson Hancock – She’s hilarious. Somehow I’d forgotten to subscribe to her blog (I’ve now remedied that). BUT, I couldn’t forget her, and this post about The Five People You Meet at Every Book Signing pegged me as The Gusher. I’m sorry. I just can’t help myself.
Obviously I don’t have much of a collection of author blogs. But what would I want to read? Something interesting! Meg Waite Clayton’s blog – interesting! Elizabeth Hancock’s blog – funny! Yeah, I want to know about their next project, but really, isn’t there only so much you can hear before that subject is, well, tired?
I almost wasn’t going to participate in this week’s BTT, but then I thought, no, you guys can point me in the right direction to some cool author blogs. Or at least tell me what you’re interested in an author’s blog.
So do tell! Who should I be reading? What would YOU like to be reading on an author’s blog?
