Top Ten Tuesday: Questions I Would Ask My Favorite Author

This is a tough one! I’m so awkward when asking authors questions… even when I have questions prepared. Heh. Here’s what I’ll do – I’ll ask five general questions, and then I’ll ask five random authors a question each. If I ask one author all ten questions, I would probably be like ‘Give me all the spoilers!!!’ and that won’t do! Also, fun fact – I’ve already gotten the chance to ask my favorite author Cassandra Clare something I’ve been wondering about. If you’re curious, then yes, she knows how the Shadowhunters series will end! 😛

Alright, without further delay, here are the questions!

  • How do you make the decision to extend a series, especially when it has been announced that your book would only be a standalone?
  • It’s not a secret that most movie or TV adaptations of books are… not good. Is it truly an author’s dream to have their book adapted into a movie or TV series?
  • Is it difficult to write YA and then write Adult and vice versa?
  • Do you think that trigger warnings are a must, regardless of the genre?
  • Do readers’ reactions affect how you write the succeeding books in a series?
  • To Kate Brian – what is up with the ending of Megan Meade’s Guide to the McGowan Boys? Will we ever get a sequel? (I can’t be the only one wondering this…)
  • To Jenny Han – are we getting a new book soon? (Such a cop out question, but it’s been a while!)
  • To Mariana Zapata – will we ever see Trip again? (I would LOVE a Trip book!)
  • To Kresley Cole – did Karin and Walker ever get back together? (I think about this a LOT.)
  • And finally, a question to Nalini Singh – when are we getting an Illium/Aodhan book? (!!!!!!!!)

Well, there you go! Coming up with questions is so hard – it took me longer to draft this post than it would take a review. Now I’m off to read your posts!

  1. I love your questions!! And some of them had me smiling pretty big. I love the personal questions that showed your passion for particular books. I’m also surprised to hear that Clare already knows how the series will end, but I guess that doesn’t necessarily mean she has to know everything in the middle yet. I’m not anywhere close to feeling like I’ve had my fill of Shadowhunters!

  2. Oooh, thank you for asking Clare that question! It’s nice to know author’s have thought ahead. BUT I don’t want it to end!! 😉

  3. I love your question about trigger warnings and the TV/film adaptations. I’ve only read one Mariana Zapata book, and I really need to read the rest so I can meet this Tripp guy.
