Throughout my life, I've had several exciting moments. But as a writer and book lover here are four that stand out to me.
1) When Heather Vogel Frederick replied to my e-mail. First of all, it's cool to have one of your favorite authors reply to an e-mail. Secondly, she let me know that the MDBC series wasn't ending with five books, that she was writing a sixth. That made for a very happy Emma.
2) When Heather Vogel Frederick commented on my blog (I posted about it here: http://bookworm716.blogspot.com/2011/11/oh-my-mdbc.html). This coupled with the last exciting moment created an over-the-moon Emma.
3) Yesterday, Shannon Hale Tweeted that she was going to be MIA on Twitter for awhile, so she had a Q&A session, and someone asked if she was starting a new project. Shannon said a super secret one, and she was currently wearing a trench coat and fedora. I decided to ask what color trench and fedora. She replied to my Tweet and said "A nice inconspicuous purple." One of my favorite authors has replied to me on Twitter. O_O
4) Today, Ally Carter, author of the awesome Gallagher Girls and Heist Society series, replied to my Twitter question (I asked what her favorite classic novel is). She said Pride and Prejudice and To Kill a Mockingbird. Not only did she reply to my Tweet, but those are my two favorite classic novels.
And now this very happy, excited Emma is going to channel this energy to write a ton in her novel.
