Author Reader Relationship

This is a post that I have been meaning to write for sometime. It all come around when I realised just how many author blogs, websites, newsletters and emails I have collected over the years. Nothing inspires me more to read and write that receiving an electronic newsletter from Jackie French (Phaery Named Phredde, Diary of a Wombat, A rose for the ANZAC boys) or reading about the day of Kristin Cashore (Graceling, Fire). I also feel prevailed to be able to wish Diana Wynne Jones (Enchanted Glass) a long happy life and to tell her of my love for her novels now that she has been diagnosed with cancer (see here for more details.)

I strongly believe in the author reader relationship! I think it’s important for both groups to be able to interact with each other outside the novel. So on that note I have complied a list of links to author’s blogs, websites, newsletters etc... that I follow: Enjoy!
