Fabulous author of Sea Heidi Kling came up with the idea of doing an Author Appreciation Week. Here are the "rules" from her website:
WHEN: March 15-19
WHAT: Write a blog post each day of next week about the authors you appreciate and why!
RULES: There are none. Be creative. If you want to pick five, pick five. Ten favorites? Go for it! Can't choose between your top twenty? Well, then you'll be doing a few a day. And they'll love you for it!
Avatars & Graphics: Feel free to use the one Sara from Novel Novice (www.novelnovice.com) made, there's a few on Twitter, or make your own. Remember to credit the generous, book-loving artists!
What is an "author": Ideally, someone that has sold a novel to an established publishing house. I suppose it could be your cat, if she's purred her way into a contract. For our purposes let's do authors of YA/MG.
I think it's a fabulous idea! I'm a little late in the game since I had to work late last night, but I'm about to go work on my first author post now. :) Will you be participating? What are some of your favorite authors?
