The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!
How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!
Q: If you could hang out with any author (living) who would it be and what would you want to do?
Well, this blog is supposed to be dedicated to historical fiction and crime drama (I know I deviate from those subjects somewhat) so I think I'll pick one of each.
For historical, I think I'd want to speak with Gerald N. Lund. Not everyone knows his stuff because, while I think he has some scifi, he's well known almost exclusively for his LDS fiction. I don't write LDS fiction, but his Work and the Glory series is a massive, sweeping historical epic, and I'm sure he would have plenty of wisdom to impart. I'd love to pick his brain about how he did his research and how he dealt with the grittier aspects of historical fiction.
For mystery/crime drama, I'd probably want to talk to someone like Gary C. King writes crime drama. He's actually done interviews with people involved in real serial killer cases, so I'm sure he has some (extremely creepy) stories to tell. I'm sure I wouldn't sleep for a few days, but I'd still love to sit him down and start with a question along the lines of, "So what's the creepiest things that's ever happened to you?" :D
How about you? Who would you hang out with?
