I like to ask how they became authors.

I would ask what books they read as teens.

Liz said...

I want this book SO bad! I'm SO glad you are hosting this contest!

Im a little random... I would ask them "If you were to chose, what animal would you be and why" I probably would ask more!


Emily Harris said...

I like to ask what were some of the first books they read/had read to them that really influenced them.

I LOVED this book, so great! Checked it out from the library, but would love to own a copy!

Jenni @ Falling Off The Shelf said...

Well, I recently asked an author if they could be dropped into one book, which book would it be and why? I thought that was an interesting

Thanks for the great contest, and your blog is looking fantastic!

i would probably ask them what gave them the idea for the story. i've heard some crazy answers, so it always interests me. :)

Jessica said...

Great contest Jen!
I'll leave a question, but please don't enter me in the contest.
To authors: "What book character has most influenced the traits that you give to your characters?"

L said...

Hmmm...great question. I like your question (it's always super to get reading recommendations from trusted sources), but I'll throw out another one too. How about...If you weren't working as an author, what would you be doing?

melissa @ 1lbr said...

Um, I usually freeze up and can't think of a single intelligent comment/question. If I had my brain, I would ask what their favorite book of theirs is and what they think their best book is.

My first thought is usually to ask if I can take a picture. If I have a real conversation (I think it's only happened once), I like to ask what parts of their own lives show up in their books.

I love asking "Is there a question you wish you were asked more often" since it always seems to lead authors to talk about something they're passionate about.

I would totally ask them for a hug first, then their autograph, then ask them how they became a writer.. :)
