I’ll be doing a Q&A on reddit on Tuesday September 1, probably starting at around noon. If you’ve got any questions about The Library at Mount Char, what I’m working on now, or anything else that would be as good a time as any!
For those of you not familiar with reddit, it’s a collection of a zillion smaller interest groups called “subreddits.” Anyone can set one up without help from an administrator, so there’s (at least) one subreddit for every conceivable topic. So, if you just go to “reddit.com” you’re not going to see anything that looks right. The link where I’m going to be doing the Q&A in is “/r/books”.
Anyone can browse the Q&A, but you’ll need to have a reddit account to post questions. If you don’t have an account already, they’re painless to set up—I think it’s just username and mmmaybe an email? No one will spam you or anything like that.
So, Tuesday at around noon I’ll go to the link above and create a thread titled something like “Hi I’m Scott Hawkins, AMA!” (“AMA” stands for Ask Me Anything.) That’s where you’d post questions. Nominally, at least, I’ll start answering questions at around 6:00 p.m. EST, but I spend waaaaaaaaaaay too much time on reddit anyway, so I might start early.
You may also be interested to know that Ernest Cline (author of Armada and Ready Player One) will be doing his AMA the day before, and Emily St. John Mandel (author of Station Eleven) will be doing hers the following day.
Hope to see you there!
