Thanks David. Doubt there will be many questions, but if you don't activate it you won't find out. So I pushed the button as well.

Ditto. Heard about it this morning and activated it. I haven't bothered answering any of the sample questions later, but might have a try tomorrow.

RE: Ask the Author - Goodreads.

It depends on which Goodreads forum you most often frequent but people are fairly happy to ask authors things on there anyway. I often have! Mind, my mum reckoned I was pushy!

Goodreads provides several question prompts to get you going right away. Your answers show up on your profile page. I've answered one already.

RE: Ask the Author - Goodreads.

Thanks for the heads-up Dave, I've activated this too.

I suppose we could all ask each other questions, if nobody else does! Or would that be oddly incestuous?
