Favorite non-mainstream writer? Favorite non-mainstream director?
The way I interpret this is thinking of authors that aren’t well known to everyone in a particular genre (or the world). Like J.K. Rowling, Stephanie Meyer, Karen Marie Moning, Nora Roberts, Stephen King, Nicolas Sparks, etc…would all be considered mainstream for me. LOTS of people have heard about them and have talked about them. So these are people that not a lot of people no about and maybe they should. 😀
For my favorite non-mainstream writer I would say Susan Richards who is the author of Chosen by a Horse. I loved this book and I have two more of her books sitting on my self TBR, Saddled and Chosen Forever. I am very excited to dig into them and that will happen this summer *crossing fingers*. Most of the books that I am reading are by authors that are very popular and everyone has been talking about them. I can’t wait to discover new authors who haven’t gotten their feet completely wet in the industry of writing.
Yep this is the 3rd time during this entire meme that I am using this lovely graphic. I had mentioned before that I don’t know directors very well. I think it’s terrible and something I need to educate myself on a little better. Yes the actors are great and yes the plot line is wonderful but it wouldn’t be anything without wonderful writers and directors to bring the whole thing together. This is like reading books for the characters and plot lines without giving credit to the author who poured their whole self into the book!
What are some of your favorite non-mainstream authors? What are some of your favorite non-mainstream directors (Diana, I’m looking at your for this one!)?
