Goodreads: Ask the Author

ask the author

Do you feel like my FAQ just doesn’t cover the bases? Are you dying to know if I’ll bring back Blue? Want to ask for hints about The Broken Eye? Just want to see what kind of cookies I  like best so you can bring them to a signing (hint hint)?

Good news! Goodreads is rolling out a brand new feature, Ask the Author, which allows you to submit questions on their website. If/when I’m able to respond, you’ll see the question and answer on my Goodreads page. I’ll have this feature turned on when I’m taking questions — and I’ll be sure to announce those times here — and I’ll be starting TODAY. So head on over HERE, scroll down below the “Brent Weeks’s Books” Section to submit questions, and I’ll work on responding to as many as I can this afternoon!
