Follow Friday #2 (FEATURED!)


Now, guess what? 'A Novella's Tale' is the featured blog for this week! I'd love to thank Rachel (Parajunkee's View) and Alison (Alison Can Read) for giving me this terrific opportunity to be featured. So, thank you! Also, if you've visited this blog, please leave a comment and a link to your blog URL below. I will follow you once you do :)

Let's get to the main point now...

Name 3 authors that you would love to sit down and spend an hour or a meal with just talking about either their books or get advice on writing from?

The first author I would choose would be J.K. Rowling. Haha, I'm sure everyone expected that. But the reason why I'd love to talk to her would be because she's created a phenomenon book series. She's a fantastic example of rags to riches. What is her secret to being so successful? I'd like to know.

The second author would have to be Hans Christian Anderson. I absolutely LOVE his fairytales (and yes, I do believe that you're never too old for them!) and it's incredible that his stories have been passed from generation to generation, almost without getting a scratch or dent. By that, I mean that the stories we are told are pretty much the same as the ones our grandparents heard of when they were young.

Finally, I would love to have a chat with Anne Frank. I understand that she's not really an author, but I find her very inspirational. Barely any of us can relate to her, but yet, she is someone we could easily have a conversation with on the street. Thinking of her shifts my mood from depressed to hopeful. If she believed that she could survive the Holocaust, I can definitely get over my bad hair day.

Which three authors would YOU pick? I'm interested to know!!! 


  1. Congrats on being featured! JKR would be pretty awesome to meet...but then she'd learn that I never finished HP so I guess I should wait on that!

  2. Congrats on the feature! I'm a new follower here and liking everything so far. I'd love to meet J.K. Rowling, but I think I might have at her for the epilogue. It read like fanfiction to me, and not even good fanfic.

    Have a great Friday!

    Aww, the story of Anne Frank is so sad. She is definitely an inspirational person, and I'm so glad that you chose her as one of the three people you really want to meet. Puts my list to shame, that's for sure! ;)

    Hope you have an awesome weekend!

  10. New follower hopping by! I picked JK Rowling too. Hans Christian Anderson was a childhood favorite of mine -- I made my mom read me his stories every night before bed. :P

  15. Hi, Congrats of being featured this week!
    J.K. Rowling sounds like a great author to meet. I heard from my old Latin professor she is a very intelligent woman in regards to Classical culture and language.

    I would also love meeting JK! Harry was a boy I grew up with and he's got a lot to do with my reading habits today. I hadn't even thought about Anne Frank though. That definitely would have been interesting.

    Here's my FF post if you like to check it out:

    Have a great weekend!


  45. Great choices...though I guess the gruesome question is: how is Frank going to look? You, know, since she's dead and all. Maybe you should add a stipulation there...Anne Frank as she was BD. :O)

    Congrats on being featured! My authors are Jeaniene Frost, Patricia Briggs and Chloe Neill. You can visit my blog at


  46. Congrats on being featured!
    I think JK Rowling is a great choice. The three author's I'd most like to talk with are Charlaine Harris, Toni Morrison and Emily Bronte.


  47. I would love to sit down with Jen Lancaster! She's funny.
    New follower from Follow Friday. Hope to see you on my blog. Donna

  48. Hello! Congrats on being featured - new follower :)
    Interesting choices! I hadn't really thought of these kinds of authors, just the ones who have been a direct influence on my own writing recently, I should definitely have included Tolkien.

    Once Upon A Time

  49. Hi! Way to go on the feature! I'm a new follower. I would have loved to meet Anne Frank too. So many awesome authors!

  50. Hi! just hopping on by to say hello. I began following you this morning but i was having trouble with my phone and couldn't comment, but anyway... loved you answers! Anne Frank would be in my top ten dinner dates :)

  51. This was only a tough decision for me because I had a hard time narrowing my list to three. Two of my three authors are dead, which will probably make eating dinner with them an unusual experience.

  53. Anne Frank would definitely be an inspiring choice! I wonder what she would think about the fact that her diary has moved so many people since her death.

    Congrats on being featured!! w00t!!
