I like to ask authors who the person is that encourages their writing the most. its hard to do anything without a little encouragement.

Karen in TN said...

I would ask the author what resources she finds most helpful when doing research for her books.

Michelle Kuo said...

I just asked my question on the actual blog of the interview.

And I put your contest in my sidebar if that counts as blogging? :D

Do you remember who was your first reviewer who wanted an ARC and what was your reaction to that? Were you nervous? Were you happy?

Obviously, she loves New York. But what restaurant does she love most in NY? OK, that is not fair, to pick one, so what are her top 5? ...lol

Karen said...

Thanks for coming to visit me at my blog. Come again anytime and I will make you a chocolate latte and give you a cinnamon bun.

Bingo said...

Karen, don't toy with me! For a moment, I thought that invitation was for me and then realized it was to enter the giveaway so is for Adriana! Rats! Oh, well, I can dream! (less calories, at least) Thanks for dropping by!

Wrighty - said...

Oh, great contest! I've been anxious to read this book. I would like to know how she got started as a writer and was she planning to be a novelist? Thanks so much and I've added this to my blog.

Bingo said...

I am so happy that you all are finding my site. It is really hard, isn't it, getting the word out there? I try everything to build up followers but I guess I have to be patient. Good luck on the giveaway....you should check out Adriana's website...she is an AMAZING woman who does EVERYTHING! Did you know one of her books is being made into a movie (BIG STONE GAP? I believe). She will be 90 miles from my home soon and I am SO trying to get there to see her! LOL

Francine said...

My question would be How you find time to write?... Thanks for the giveaway.

Infant Bibliophile said...

I'm so excited to learn about this book - loved her others. I guess since she's Italian, I might have asked for a recipe! Thanks for the give away. :)

writemeg said...

I'm so excited for this book! :) Ms. Trigiani's books skillfully blend many themes and genres, I think... but I would have liked to ask if she's ever thought about writing in other genres -- maybe young adult, maybe strict romance?

Thanks so much for the chance! :)

Bingo said...

Adriana has a YA book coming out soon. "Viola in Reel Life", a young adult novel, will be out in the fall of 2009, Writemeg!

ddurance said...

How amazing is it for your book, Big Stone Gap to be made into a movie? Do you know yet of any of the actors / actresses who will be in it?

Bingo said...

Thanks, Drey! I can always count on you! I think it is a super book that you would like! I wish everyone could win!

I would ask her if she has a favorite Italian restaurant in NYC and if so what is it? I am a follower.

I shall gather the questions and forward them to Adriana and hopefully she will have time to get them answered. She is a busy lady but I know she will do it when she can. Thanks for all the great questions! Keep them coming so we can have lots of entries. ....and thank you all who started to be followers! I am shooting for 50 by the "Ides of March"!

Sheri S. said...

Great interview! I would ask her: When did you realize you wanted to be a writer and what was your first big step in pursuing a writing career?

Thanks for the giveaway!

Gwendolyn B. said...

I'd like for her to expand upon the impression that JANE EYRE made on her. In what way? Does she think of it when she writes?
Thanks for the chance to win this book - it sounds wonderful!

i thought it was a great interview and was wondering what she does when she gets "writers block" to regroup her thoughts

ellie said...

I loved Big Stone Gap so my question would have been if she knows who will be starring in it and when we can expect to see it.
Thanks for the giveaway. Please enter me.

scottsgal said...

I would ask her at what time in her life did she know she wanted to be a writer?
