Book Blogger Hop - 3/18 - 3/24

 Question of the Week:

Has your contact with authors usually been in person, via e-mail, social media, or something else?
My Answer:

Most of my contact has been via social media or e-mail.

I have met a few authors in person for book signings but none in person for a review request.

Any author I have met via any method has been gracious and appreciative of what we book bloggers do.

  1. I know that authors really do appreciate book bloggers as we share our love of their books! Never met an author in person :- (

  2. I have mostly had contact through email, but I've also attended a bunch of author events and so met some in person as well. I recently attended the Left Coast Crime mystery conference. There are authors galore there! Lots and lots of fun! All were very nice.

  4. Hi, Elizabeth!

    E-mail seems to be the most common way of meeting authors. Social media is pretty common, too. And yes, many authors are indeed very appreciative of what we book bloggers do. Book people are simply THE BEST!!

    Happy Reading!! Have a GREAT weekend!! :)
