Follow Friday- thanks!

Q: What is one thing you wish you could tell your favorite author?

A: Hm. I think I'd tell Shelly Laurenston how much I appreciate her humor. I found her books last year when I was having a rough go at work (I run an animal rescue) and had a sick kitty at home. Was not a fun time.

So, Shelly, thank you for those wonderfully wacky and slightly insane shifters in your Pride series. Getting lost in their world for a little while and laughing till it hurt was a wonderful, wonderful thing. You kick ass and I am forever grateful for Lochlan, Blayne, Bo, the Shaw boys, Sissy Mae and the Smith herd and of course DeeeeeeAaaannnn and Ric :) They just kill me. 

You also helped keep a lot of people from being pinched so they kinda love ya too. 

And the herd. Well, the herd loves you too because you made their mom laugh instead of cry. And when mom's happy everyone's happy. There's treats and the good kitty nip comes out. Plus you write about kitties. Big kitties but still they're kitties and the herd thinks that's just awesome! They luuuuvs them some Mitch Shaw. Mmmhmmm.

So, what about yall? What would you tell your favorite authors?

Oh. And while you're here! 
We're giving away a copy of Eulogy's Secret by Grace Elliot if yall want to enter :)

  4. Laughing is great to do when reading a book - especially if you are around others... It keeps people guessing!

    Hope the kitty is better!

    Here is my answer! Stop by when you have a chance!

    1. Thanks Kate. It definitely is a great thing. I've gotten some funny looks more than once when I've been reading in public. Always a hoot.

    1. Thanks Alison :) Shelly writes 3 different series. The Pride, Magnus Pack and Dragon Kin (written as GA Aiken). Shifters of all kinds in the first two. Lions, bear, wolves, wild dogs. Then Dragons only with the Aiken books. All of them are fantastic!

    1. Ah, she's great but her series are definitely adult. They're hysterical though and nicely written.

  8. Can't say I've ever heard of the author, but I can definitely appreciate the sentiment - I always fall back on Terry Pratchett when I need a good literary laugh.
