This week's question: What is one thing you wish you could tell your favorite author?
My answer: I have lots of favorite authors, not one absolute favorite. So I will do a short address to the top three.
Dear J.K Rowling:
I bow to your extreme greatness. I am certain that you possess the Elixir of Writing, and maybe the Elixir of Life as well, but I'm more interested in the earlier one. If so, will you please share with the rest of us writer peons so we may, too, be as great? The world deserves yet another series as mind-bogglingly fantastic as Harry Potter.
Dear Charlainne Harris:
I've named my dog after one of your characters. For this reason, I believe you should tell me the secret to having such an amazing writing voice that readers will follow Sookie anywhere, even when the plot is sometimes lacking. Also, if you could stop trying to turn Eric into an ass and get back to the romance between him and Sookie, like in Dead to the World, we'd all really appreciate it.
Dear Suzanne Collins:
While Mockingjay was somewhat of a disappointment in the end, I still hold the belief that you write action scenes and tension better than any other author out there. I pray that someday my books will be as page-turning as yours. Also, thanks for making Katniss really badass to counteract the whole weakling Bella nonsense. Generations of women across the world all thank you for fixing the brains of our daughters, granddaughters, sisters, etc. Kickass girls too the end!

Second hop question: Are you attending the Book Blogger Convention (aka Bea Bloggers) and/or Book Expo America in New York City in June? If not, will you participate in the online event called Armchair Bea?
My Answer: I will not be attending the convention or the Expo, but I will be attending the online Armchair Bea event =)
