Feature and Follow #15

What is Feature and Follow you ask? Why it is this fabulous meme that connects bloggers to other bloggers all while increasing our following. Hosted by two very talented bloggers: Parajunkee and Alison Can Read make sure you join in on the fun and put your name in the Linky!

Q: If you could hang out with any author (living) who would it be and what would you want to do?

A: Oh my gosh this is such a hard question to answer! At first thought I wanted to say J.K. Rowling, I love her, she is amazing, but I think she will be a lot of people's choice, so I have decided to go Indie. After all, I actually communicate with Indie authors on a daily basis, but the problem is trying to narrow it down to just one! So I have decided to cheat just a little and pick one female and male author. 

For my female author of choice, I would choose to spend the day with Nikki Jefford, who, thanks to Facebook, Twitter, her blog and being a member of her street team I have discovered that not only is she incredibly nice, generous, and sweet, but totally awesome! She is incredibly loyal to her fans and is a blast to chat with. I would totally love to spend a day with her. Since this is a fantasy, for my day with her, I would have her come down here to good old New Mexico, where we would have the ultimate girl's day, with a full day of pampering at the best day spa in town. Then we would go to lunch at Dion's, where we would grub on some amazing pizza and killer sandwiches, that you can only find in New Mexico. 

For my male author, I would choose to spend the day with M.R. Merrick. I am sure that this comes as no surprise to all of my regulars here at the blog. Since I first read The Protector Series, I fell in love with his world building and amazing characters. Then I met him on Facebook and Twitter, and discovered that not only is he an incredibly gifted author, he is funny, nice, loyal to his fans, and an all around great guy to chat with, harass and argue with! For my day with this author I would have his entire family meet us here in my hometown, where my family and I would introduce him and his lovely family to the joy and warmth that is the New Mexico sun; by spending an amazing day at White Sands National Monument where we would surf the sand dunes and bury our families in the sand. Then we would finish the day off at Dion's where I would introduce them to how New Mexico does pizza and sandwiches! 

So, who would you hang out with?


  1. Yep, I think that JK Rowling will be a popular answer this week!! I haven't read any books from the other authors though.
