Check out their blog for their top ten and lists of other bloggers who participate.

March 28: Top Ten Authors I’m Dying To Meet / Ten Authors I Can’t Believe I’ve Met  (some other “meeting authors” type spin you want to do)

Authors I’m Glad I Met

1. Ilona Andrews. I met the husband and wife team at a book signing–Gordon said they’re a “short but sturdy people.”

2. Anne Bishop. Saw her and Briggs at a shared signing. Two for the price of one!

3. & Patricia Briggs. She has all the colors of pens.

4. Charlaine Harris. She did a talk up on a stage, and then was a signing machine. The line was long, but moved fast.

5. Jenny Lawson. I’ve been lucky enough to meet her a few times. Always a funny, thoughtful speaker.

Authors I Want to Meet

Jim Butcher. I adore his Dresden books. Who doesn’t love a t-rex riding wizard?

Tanya Huff. So many great fantasy books, all with wonderful magic systems and great heroes.

Mercedes Lackey. A bunch of my childhood favorites.

China Mieville. The twisty mind behind these books!

Seanan McGuire. Urban fantasy at its best, weird wonderful short stories, and great characters.

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.

    Jealous over Briggs! She doesn’t travel much to the east coast, so I’d have to be super lucky to ever see her do a signing in my nearby bookshops!

  6. Really jealous of you meeting Charlaine Harris! I bet that was really awesome 🙂

  7. Wow you’ve met some amazing authors so far. I would love to meet the husband and wife team behind Ilona Andrews, the Kate Daniels books are some of my favourites.
    Great picks for this week, and I hope you get to meet all the authors on your wish list as well! 🙂

    OMG Mercedes Lackey! I’m ashamed to say I recognized her name and knew I had read some of her books, but couldn’t remember which ones. I seem to definitely recall reading Winds of Fate when I was 11 or 12. I think I have but don’t remember if I ever read Winds of Change and Arrows of the Queen. That was back when I was hugely into fantasy books. Then I got into historical fiction and have been reading mostly that genre for the last 15-20 years! 😂

  9. Aww awesome authors, lucky you🙃 like you i would love to meet jim butcher his books are brillent !
