Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature created by The Broke and the Bookish featuring a new top ten list each week. Everyone can participate- head on over to their blog and sign up.
This week’s topic is Top 10 Authors I’d Die To Meet. I’m making this list the Comic-Con edition since I will be there next week and may have the chance to meet some of these authors through panels and signings. I would be thrilled to meet:
5. Rachel Caine – Her Morganville vampire series is one of my favorites, and I was sad to miss her at last years Comic-Con. She will be at the Immortality panel. I would love to know her plans for the Morganville series and what she’s planning next.
6. Kiersten White – The author of Paranormalcy and the forthcoming Supernaturally. Paranormalcy is such a fun book and I’ve heard good buzz on the sequel. I would love to see her at the Diversity in Young Adult Works and What’s Hot in YA panels.
9. Scott Westerfeld – He has had such an interesting career and I’d love to hear what he’s up to. He will be on several panels, including his own called Building the World of Leviathan: an Illustrated Steampunk Series.
10. Mira Grant – I’d like to meet her and find out more about the Newsflesh trilogy. She is on an interesting panel: Writing the Apocalypse: Genre Authors Explore the End Times (And the Fun That Comes After!)
There are many more authors I’d like to meet at Comic-Con but that’s a good start. It’s such a huge event that I’m not sure I’ll be able to actually meet any on this list, but it will be fun to see them in panels anyway.
What authors are you dying to meet?
