Reader interview for the back of Think Of The Children

July 9, 2012

As you are probably aware, I get interviewed a fair amount about book stuff but I realise that sometimes journalists don’t ask the questions that most readers are interested in.

At the back of Think Of The Children, I am going to run an interview with a bit of a difference… you ask the questions. In the Kindle edition, it will be in print. It *may* be videoed and used online, or as part of an extended ebook. It depends on a few things and I’ll let you know.

So, this is your opportunity to ask me anything you like. If you want to know where Jessica’s name comes from, now is your time to ask. If you have ever wondered if a specific part or character is based on a true story, then go for it. The point is for you to ask anything you want. About me, about the books, the characters, the plots, influences – anything. Be as traditional or as obscure as you want.

There is only one rule. When you ask, tell me your name and where you’re from. This can be as vague as you want – Joe Smith, Lancashire is fine, as is Joe Smith, Chorlton if you are happy to be more specific. Your name will be at the back of the ebook with your question and the answer, so you will be immortalised too.

Depending on how many questions I get, I may not be able to answer everything, but I will put in what I can. I will only answer one question per person – but you can ask two or three and I’ll pick my favourite if you prefer.

If you are happy to ask in public, or if you want to see what others are asking, you can go through Facebook or Twitter – else email me.
