You guys, I love when authors have a presence online and interact with their readers via blog posts and twitter. A few of my favorite authors have posted really amazing blog posts lately that I wanted to share with you…
First of all: Patrick Rothfuss. Even if you don’t read adult fantasy, you should follow his blog. He is absolutely hilarious – and he has a yearly charity drive for Heifer International which raises hundreds of thousands of dollars and gives away free books.
Recently on the blog, he talks about his take on NaNoWriMo. I dare you not to laugh when you read it. DARE. YOU.
The following video is also from a recent post, check him out reading this hilarious story:
Next: Lauren Willig. Her Pink Carnation series is one of my absolute favorite historical series. They are interesting, funny, historically accurate and suspenseful. Her blog has a lot of historical writing tips and book recommendations.
One of her most recent posts is a pretty extensive list of historical mystery recommendations.
Last: Veronica Roth. The first book of her dystopian trilogy, Divergent, was released this year. Her blog has a lot of insight into the writing process in general and how she approaches it in particular. It also has some great reading recommendations.
A recent post of hers is about some of the varied things that inspired her to write Divergent – and I love the way she approached answering the question!
So now tell me what your favorite author blogs are! Also feel free and comment on who your fave authors to follow on twitter are.
