Feature & Follow (12): Mardi Gras

FF 2012 Feature & Follow #120

Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by both Alison Can Read and Parakunkee’s View. This is a great way to gain blog followers for book bloggers, follow other blogs, and get to know each other. Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we get to answer. You can find more info about this meme here.

Q: Happy Mardi Gras! If they were throwing the HOTTEST books off of a Mardi Gras float -- what would you do to have them throw to you…?

I've never been to New Orleans or a big Mardi Gras parade (only a small, child-friendly one), but the little glimpses I've had (of the adult ones) are the reason I've steered clear. I'm not willing to do anything super embarrassing or illegal for a book. I know...boring. But I'm okay with that. I will continue to stalk authors in legal ways and attend their book signings (because I love signed books and meeting authors). Right now I really want Jamie McGuire to attend the Los Angeles book signing in April that Colleen Hoover, Jessica Park, Rebecca Donovan, Abbi Glines, and more will be at. I've asked her already (because it's right after Walking Disaster comes out... perfect timing if you ask me). But I won't be flashing her Mardi-Gras-style, lol (which I'm sure she appreciates). Unfortunately, I found out from her that she thinks the signing is full (boo, insert super sad face).


  1. Hopping through~~

    I wouldn't try anything embarrassing neither. Brrr.

    Followed via GFC!

  2. Ha! Nice! Yeah, I love "stalking" authors at signings too. Unfortunately so far this year, I have a big fat 0 of authors coming to boring old St. Louis.

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  3. I wouldn't do anything crazy either. Sadly no authors go to my state, :(
