BBA's We all know they exist. I'm tired of giving them all the attention. Why not highlight some that do know how to behave?
Ed Lorn-This man is fastly becoming one of my favorite authors. I adore him. He trys to "stay classy" and to me he succeeds. I am very honored to call him my friend.
TL Haddix-Another author I would love to be real life friends with. She is warm, funny and knows how to behave. She is full of sarcasm when need be but she will hold your hand if you are down.
Andrew Buckley-I recently read his book Stiltskin and I honestly loved it. He posted on my GR review but he was nervous and said so. So many bad authors have made the good ones scared to move.
Nenia Campbell-Some people love her. Some hate her. No matter how you review her book she will send you smiles. What's wrong with that? Nothing
Derrolyn Anderson-A true lady through and through. She doesn't get involved in drama and keeps people really and truly loving her. I wish I was more like her.
RS Carter-I almost didn't accept him as my GR friend because at the time I was leery of authors period. He promised not to spam and he hasn't done so. He is a reader and my friend.
Linda Hilton-Love her or hate her. She will tell you the truth. I'm very blessed to have this woman as my friend. She is funny and amazing.
I'm sure I'm missing several of you and I don't mean too. I just want to point out that they aren't all bad. Feel free to add to the list.
Shelby, thanks for thinking of this. I am reblogging.
i agree with all the above except two, and that's because I hadn't known about them. I'm off right now to check out RS Carter and Linda Hilton. Right after I add a couple of my own.
Hugh Howey-got his start by publishing independently, and after he hit it big, he helps others who want to do the same, by offering advice and encouragement in his blog. I love his Wool series, a dystopian.
Patrick Rothfuss- writes fantastic fantasy, but also raises millions for charities through the fundraising site, Wordbuilders.
Lance Weller-GR Author. I started to read his novel, The Wilderness, and loved the Prologue, but we knew already that the dog is giving to die. The prologue was a four-star review for me though; it was so beautiful. When I posted my review of the prologue on GR, he wrote a response in his blog which addressed the issue, in literature, of dogs dying, and also touched on animal cruelty, and pointed out that the novel was actually a love story between a man and his dog. So touching. Needless to say, I read the book.
Mark Matthews-GR Author who writes excellent fiction, and posts great reviews of the books he reads.
Patricia Reding-BL Author. I haven't read her books yet, but I enjoy her blog postings.
Mallory Kellogg-BL Author AND a cat lady.
Diana Gabaldon-one of my favorite authors who maintains good relations with all her fans.
