Book Blogger Hop - 4/27 - 5/3


Question of the Week:

Have you ever thought of writing a respectful, but angry letter to an author to ask them WHY they killed off one of your favorite characters in a novel? (submitted by Maria @ A Night's Dream of Books)

My Answer:

LOL...no, I have never written to an author to see why they killed off my favorite character.

That would be fun and interesting to find out, though.

  1. I haven't written an author either! I figure they have their reasons most of the time!

  2. I'm not sure I ever had a favorite character killed off.

  3. Yes, it can sometimes be interesting to hear why the author made that choice.

  4. I've never written an author to question why. It's her story and she gets to tell it....whether or not I like the outcome.

    However, I have had an author contact me to explain things after reading a blog post in which I mentioned I found the ending a little confusing! She invited me to email her for an explanation....which I did!

  5. Elizabeth I would've thought that more people, despite me not having done it before. I figured that if it had been a question that maybe it was more common. Guess not.

    1. It may be more common, but not sure.

      It would be fun to ask that or anything of the author.

      Thanks for commenting, Angelica Joy.

  6. Same here. I don't think it would be right for me to demand answers from an author, as the characters are their creation and the story is theirs after all.

  7. I know this is a big thing to do on social media, especially if the author already has an account to interact with their fans, only to get hate and death threats when they kill of a beloved character. But for me, I don't take it personal. I really don't care, in fact, I like it when someone important dies because that's apart of life. The people we love die!! Don't send authors hate and death threats just because you can't handle their death. How do you think the author felt when they had to outline their fave's death?! My BBH
