My favorite author is Kim Harrison. I really like her books because there are vampires, werewolves, witches, all my favorite things. Plus her books take place in Cincinnati which is only like 15 minutes away from me.

Cinnamon said...

My favorite author? That's a tough one. Right now I'm digging on Patricia Briggs and Rachel Vincent because they both have very strong, down to earth female leads.

My favourite author for YA is Tamora Pierce. Her worlds are always so wholly real and her characters are simply amazing. And I haven't even talked about the actions scenes and everything else. Simple breathtaking.

donnas said...

Its hard to pick one favorite. I am going to say Kelley Armstrong. Her books all have very likeable characters that are well developed. She writes about werewolves, vampires, witches and all kinds of paranormal beings. I am anxiously awaiting the chance to read The Awakening which just came out.

Sarah Dessen would have to be one of my favourite authors because she has the ability to make all her novels and characters so painstakingly real and relatable not to mention that there is always a message of hope left with the readers in the end.

*happy sigh* my favorite is Libba Bray... I love the Gemma Doyle trilogy, her world and characters are so beautiful it became hard for me to discern fiction from my own reality...but that's okay because it's a world I want to live in forever. Even the ending of the series was wonderful, it made me cry, but at the same time it was hopeful, making you proud of what the main character had to go through...yes she is my favorite author.

I'm posting a link on my blog today, haha and yay^^ I just became the 61st follower, no one told me about it, I found your blog from clicking on your avatar at Daniel Water's blog

Molly Jo said...

L.M. Montgomery. The Anne Series is, and will always be, my absolute favorite of all time. She created a world that I wish I lived in. There's just something comforting about her writing. I get completely lost in it. I don't even know how many times I've read Anne of Green Gables. I have, like, 4 copies, plus a set from the 1936 printing that a college professor gave me.

I'll totally post this on my blog but I'm not gonna lie, it's going to be in the AM. Epic tired just hit. Also, I checked your blog and there the contest was! So that's how I found out.

BN Book Blog said...

One of my favorite authors is Tamora Pierce, because she cranks out high voltage, yet personal novels time after time.

We are now following the blog, and we find out about this contest from Melissa Marr herself on twitter. We also tweeted about the contest at http://twitter.com/bnbookblog

Great contest!

PageTurner2011 said...

Well, my favorite author would have to be Melissa Marr. Not because I am entering this contest, but it is because when I first started reading Wicked Lovely, I thought this is not very interesting but I couldn't seem to put it down. The more I got into it, the more I wanted to know how Aislinn and Seth and Kennan would turn out. Then buy the time I was in Ink Exchange, I was hooked... her world is fantastic. I follow on Twitter and the website daily looking for any hint of what's to come.

readerchick12 said...

My favorite author is...um...Kristi Cashore!
Because she wrote Graceling,one of my all time favorite books!
I found out about this contest on Melissa Marr's Twitter

I am a brand new follower O:
Watching referred me.

My favorite author is Diana Wynne Jones. I love how the main characters be female or male, can keep me laughing and crying at the very same time. How her worlds of fantasy can jump out of the book and plant themselves into my mind. No matter how many times I have read them, I have to finish her books before bed, or I can't even sleep peacefully. I'll be to busy imagining what'll happen next.

Arin said...

Currently my favorite author is E.L. Doctorow. I am constantly astonished by his impeccable ability to recreate the era in which each historical fiction novel is set. He also makes it so the reader feels not only attached to the characters (as the setting is always seen as a character as well), but deeply involved with them, and engulfed into the immaculate setting. As I read a Doctorow novel, I am no longer in the 21st century--it is the most simple and yet most brilliant form of time travel.

Z said...

Hi, saw this on Melissa Marr's twitter and am now following you there.

Favorite author is Sarah Monette, who gets WAY less recognition than she deserves. Her world-building is gorgeous and subtle and makes sense; extreme fantasy but with highly thought-out political and personal stiuations. The dynamic between the main characters in her Doctrine of Labyrinths series is extremely compelling; she makes everyone work for a solution.. I can't even describe the awesome, clearly, but if R-ratedness (violence, sexual situations-- I promise nothing's gratutitous) won't bother you, definitely give her a try. Also brothers! There are too few... anythings... that cover sibling dynamics.

Yan said...

My favorite as of right now is Kristin Cashore (Graceling was unbelievable!) She managed to write fantasy, romance, action, adventure all in one and STILL managed to keep me interested!

I was refereed by Lauren and I'll post this on my sidebar :D

Ozaira said...

I am now a follower.I was referred to your contest by Lauren's crammed bookshelf.My favourite author is Georgette Heyer b/c she portrays her heroines as sensible young women with a good sense of judgement.Not the typical head-over-heels-type of women.

pepsivanilla said...

My favorite author. Now that is a hard question. I will have to go with Sarah Dessen because all of her books are so true to life, complicated but still enjoyable. As soon as I finish reading one of her books I just want to pick it up again and reread it!

+1 I started following you

nightdweller20 said...

My favorite author? It's really hard to narrow it down to one. I love a LOT of authors. Right now I'm going to go with Karen Marie Moning. I love her Fever series! It's got Fae, sidhe-seers, mystery, it's set in Ireland, and it's a dark, gritty series.

jaam121388 at yahoo dot com

For the record, I loved Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange!

Deedles said...

I would have to say right now my favorite author is Stephenie Meyer. Why?--because I adore the Twilight series.
I'm a follower.

Cat said...

I have lots of favorite authors.
One (Other than Melissa) is Casaandra Clare, (as you know I'm sure) the author of the Mortal Instruments Series.
She is one of my favorites because I love her writing style, I love the descriptions. Her characters are written with flaws, quirks that make them believable.

I am following now.

My favorite author would be Terry Goodkind! His books are just amazing, and I love that his female main character is so strong and just i don't even know how to explain her :) Plus, he just takes you right into Richard and Kahlan's world (the 2 main characters of his books)

Daniel Waters, well his blog, referred me to this page. I <3 your blog!!!

My favorite author is... oh this is a tuffy, I like so many authors, but I would have to say....

J.K. Rowling... or Dan Waters... or Micheal Chabon!

But I'm gonna go with J.K. Rowling. She has the most imaginative ideas, who would of come up with characters like Hagrid, Dumbledore, or Snape? Truly inspiring, her writing has kicked my imagination back into motion. I don't know what I would've done without her books while my teacher droned on about tht fact that I read to much. Ahh the irony. Anyways, I really would love to win, the book sounds awesome! And I'd love to review it for MY blog. Hope I win!

My favorite author is........hmm......I can't decide I'm sorry! I like sooooooo many authors! But lately I have discovered that I like James Patterson , Michael Grant, and um more! I also really like L.J. Smith , Cate Tiernan , and Cassandra Clare I like L.J. Smiths characters alot , and I like the way she helps us in a way relate to the her characters , I also love the way she always has new ideas for her different series that you would of never thought of , a way to keep the books continuing , without dissapointing you. Oh and just thought i'd mention , her book series the vampire diaries are becoming a tv show on the CW this fall! yes i'm soooooooo excited! The only thing I dislike about her books are the covers , but that dosnt matter to me , at all really. One reason I really like Cassandra Clares writing is her creativity , and the way she thinks of such great story ideas , when at times most novels and books all revolve around the same thing. I am becoming a follower as we speak. Oh ! And I also love JK Rowling ! Who dosnt! I posted on facebook heres the link it should be on my posts: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1580928146&ref=profile
Thanks alot! Please enter me if you have the time I also happen to love Meliss Marr. my email is : emilyblomquist13@gmail.com
