“The Big Score.”—Holly Black, Black Heart
The question people ask the most is, of course, “Why is she your favorite author?”
That answer has a few facets that add up to a whole answer.
The first facet is that I discovered her book Tithe when I was in the seventh grade, so the 2004-2005 school year. I had begun to understand that I wasn’t straight back then and when Corny came out, I was like, “OMG! A hero! A GAY HERO!” Of course, I was also in love with faeries due to my mother’s
undying love for faeries and pushing them on me passion for them. Tithe was the first novel I ever read in which a character was gay and out.
So, what’s another reason why Holly Black is a favorite author of mine?
She ACTUALLY reads her fan mail!
Three years ago now I sent her a fan mail letter and included the first three chapters of my manuscript, since my chapters were (and still are) short.
This is the hand-written letter I received in response from her.
Need another reason to find her amazing? Check out the conversation I had with her on Twitter due to a tweet Malinda Lo posted!
And so, this is why I recommend you check out this blogger’s favorite author, Holly Black!
