Subscribe ! Authors on YouTube

We don't always get to meet our favorite authors face to face, but YouTube can be a nice subsitutue. These writers aren't just stacking up loyal readers but also subscribers ! It's a place to hear your favorite authors give advice, writing insights and a little peek into their lives.

John Green
Channel: Vlogbrothers
700,000 subscribers
 I'd be remiss not to include him on this list. John's vlogs with his brother Hank have received over a million views. His videos are where he announces cover designs, book titles and more.

Maggie Stiefvater
Channel: MaggieStiefvater
3,800 subscribers
Maggie posts everything from behind the scene looks at her book trailers to her own daily vlogs. You can even check out her vlogs from last year to get an author POV of her going on tour for Forever with fellow author, Tessa Gratton.

Jackson Pearce
Channel: JacksonAPearce
12,800 subscribers
Her channel has made waves since Jackson posted a video in response to Chik-fila-, but Jackson also posts about her daily adventures in life and writing with friends. 
Her channel is home to the Sh*t Authors Say Video and the only place to see your favorite YA authors dancing to the Friends theme song.

Tahereh Mafi
Channel: Thmafi
360 subscribers
Tahereh doesn't post regularly but, this is where she announced some pretty exclusive news like her novellas and the title of Unravel Me. Plus, Tahereh has a video where she answers readers Facebook question in character.

Kiera Cass
3,300 subscribers
Kiera keeps her channel up to date with everything from little  sketches to behind the scenes book and writing information. Cass has over 100 videos on her channel, so you will have plenty to watch.

Veronica Roth

235 subscribers

Veronica hasn't updated in a year and this channel only has a few videos, but where else can you see your favorite YA author jump into a bathtub of marshmallows with her agent ?

So, who did we miss ? Who are your favorite author on YouTube ?


  1. I just checked out Jackson Pierce's channel because of your recommendation and I love it! Of course, I love John Green's too :) I'll be checking out some of the other authors' channels on the list.

    The only other one I can think of is Gretchen McNeil's vlogs on the YARebel channel - she just seems like a fun, awesome person.

  2. Ooh, I didn't know about Gretchen McNeil ! I love John Green's too, it is kind of what inspired this post.

  3. Kaleb Nation is probably my favorite. His focus on YouTube isn't always his writing, but he's really active with his fanbase.

  4. Thank you for this fantastic list. I will subscribe to all of them. I would also include this author (Elen Ghulam) here is one of her videos
