Let’s talk interacting with authors IRL (in real life) or online. This is your opportunity to talk about your favorite author readings that you have attended. Or, you can feature your favorite author fan moment (i.e., an author sent you a tweet or commented on your blog). Maybe you even want to share how your interactions have changed since becoming a blogger or share your own tips that you have learned along the way when interacting with authors as a blogger.
I actually have not attended any of my favorite author reading. This is because not many authors come up to my area in Northern Canada. I have had favorite fan moments with my favorite authors like Jennifer L. Armentrout, Michelle Krys (who I know), Miranda Kenneally and many others. My interactions with them changed since I was becoming a blogger due to their awesome support in acknowledging bloggers who help them while they are writing and get input. I even call some of them my friend now. Being acknowledged in a book definitely makes me feel that I am supporting these authors novels. Thank You Jen!

Hopefully I can maybe attend more signings in the future because I would LOVE to meet all my favorite authors in one place! My tip to other bloggers about interacting with authors would be to have fun and get to know them when you see them in person or even in emails for blog tours.
