Woah, Some Authors Actually Noticed Me?

November 15, 2017

Occasionally, not often, someone will take out their phone, tap on all the little keys and find it in themselves to tweet at me. Sometimes these tweets written by complete strangers do make me a little sad (if you have something to say, say it to my face or at least pop into my DMs) but they’re generally lovely people saying lovely things. Once or twice, they’ve been well known or famous lovely people saying lovely things. This is a post on them. ps. these are my author interactions before july xx

Wait, why am I making a post on my twitter interactions? Can’t I just, you know, reply to them on twitter? Well yes and no. I never know what to say when someone tweets at me. Perhaps it’s because there are so many lovely, enthusiastic people online that I feel like I need to match up to – but can’t. I’m not an exceptionally lively person, physically or online. I tried it a little bit at the beginning of my blog but it just wasn’t me. So here we are, looking at them together and hoping that I didn’t disappoint the authors too much when I gave them short replies.

Kendare was my first, and probably most memorable interaction (although I’ve only really had two, take that as you will). I adore literally all of the books that I’ve read by her and admire the way that she manages to stretch herself out over different book genres. Her AntiGoddess series was one of the few books that I picked up when I was in my three year reading slump. I couldn’t put all of that in a tweet though, nor did I know how to elaborate on my feelings so when I got a tweet back I just . . . liked it. I mean, I still don’t completely know what to say now, but in my

I mean, I still don’t completely know what to say now, but in my head it was something like:

Oh my god she replied. Help. What do I do? Should I pretend I’m Cait from paperfury in the hopes that she’ll like me? Do I reply saying almost the exact same thing I said in the first tweet? No. That’s counter productive. Argh! I guess I’ll just like it, maybe she’ll feel my love through the tiny pink heart. HAHA I’m so lame.

Yeah, I know. Book Outlet isn’t an author. But they’re well known in the book community, so I’m just going to leave this here. I think I’ve ordered from them twice before, and loved the array of books and prices that they had – except for the shipping. You might be shocked that I’ve only ordered from the twice, but I live in Singapore! The exchange rate really isn’t all that great, especially when it comes to shipping. I do think that some of the people who host book sales in my country buy from them though, and I think that’s great. Bulk deals are hard to find here! So thank you 😀 (also hello Joyce)

You may know her as the author of the gorgeous book titled: Caraval. I had been wanting to get my hands on in for ages, so when @GingerlyReview tweeted out that it was on sale for £5 I knew that I had to snatch that up. I tweeted just to let her know that it had been helpful, and lo and behold, here comes Stephanie. I hadn’t read her book yet, so it might not have been as much as a heart pounding moment as Kendare but trust me, my heart was still going. I’m in the process of reading her

I hadn’t read her book yet, so it might not have been as much as a heart pounding moment as Kendare but trust me, my heart was still going. I’m in the process of reading her book, and wanted to thank her for writing basically. The book is gorgeous, the map is gorgeous and so far I’m loving the way she writes!

    I like this feature a lot. You know, it’s nice to reflect on sweet interactions in general. I do admire people who talk to authors and stuff, because, well, I doubt I’d ever be able to do that really. Like, I think I have tweeted at two authors in my life? And, it was very awkward to think of things as replies.
