  1. I love the topics you choose each week for 50/50 Friday!! I forget, but have you done the topic of 'Author You'd Most/Least Like to Meet'?

    1. Thanks, Lisa! No, we haven't actually but thank you for the suggestion! We've done the character that you'd most/least like to meet but not author.

    2. I guess I must have missed the week when you did 'the character that you'd most/least like to meet". That would have bee a fun one to do!

    3. I've been thinking and we may decide to do a freebie rewind week where you can pick whatever topic you'd like to go back to. Keep an eye out for it; it'll probably happen in November!

  2. I've only just found this page. Now I can schedule way out into the future. Thank you!

    1. I'm glad it's helpful :) It's super helpful for me too, honestly, to keep all the topics and links in one place. Thank you for participating, Stephanie!
