I have no idea if this is new or useful but...
Goodreads now allows you to activate your Ask the Author button. You just tick the box on your profile.

Thanks for the heads up - I've activated it and will see what happens.

I noticed this yesterday and activated it Smile Doubt I have enough readers to ask me anything, but you never know! Smile

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.

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!

Thanks, David. I didn't know about that. I've now activated mine.

Thanks, David. It will be interesting to see if anything happens.

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

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?
