I just wanted to take a moment and talk about one of my favorite authors, Gail Carson Levine. She has written several amazing books (most related to fairy tales) and is probably best known for Ella Enchanted which receive the Newbery Honor.
I've been following Gail on her blog, gailcarsonlevine.blogspot.com, and I've seen how interactive she is. She always replies to comments, and every post I've read has been her response to a letter or question mailed to her. I know that successful (busy) authors can't check every email sent to them, but Gail really makes an effort to connect with her fans.
I can't tell you how much I love authors that not only write INCREDIBLE books, but also take the time to connect with their fans.
You're awesome Gail! Thanks for writing such amazing novels.
Who are you favorite authors? Have you had the chance to meet or connect with them?
