Vote For Your Favorite Author to Appear on Dancing with the Stars

dwtsnoauthors.JPGLooking at the comments section for our Should Authors Dance? post, it seemed like plenty of GalleyCat readers want to see their favorite writer appear on Dancing with the Stars. Now it’s time to do something about it.

Reader Michelle Gilstrap suggested Lotus Eaters author Tatjana Soli and proposed: “[Soli] is coming to Los Angeles for a special event on October 16th, I will ask her if she would like to do it. We should start a Facebook page for her, if she says yes. This is how they got Betty White on [Saturday Night Live].”

It’s a great idea. We’ll start by letting our readers pick the best writer to appear on Dancing with the Stars–we’ve collected ten suggestions from GalleyCat readers below.  Go to this Facebook link to vote for your favorite author. We’ll count the votes and build a special Facebook page to advocate for the winning author. The ten suggestions follow below…

Tatjana Soli
Nora Roberts
Kathy L. Patrick
Claire Cook
Jodi Picoult
Harlan Coben
Ally Carter
David Sedaris
Andy Borowitz
Tishani Doshi

(This GalleyCat correspondent recommends Pleasure Seekers author Tishani Doshi, because she confessed to classical dance training at Brooklyn Book Festival event with  Salman Rushdie.)
