Ask An Author 3.0 - A New Year!

2024... For some reason, I thought we'd have hover-cars and Futurama's tube transportation by now. Instead, I get a pinched nerve in my neck. Yippee! I'm not sure about y'all but I got a few resolutions to work on for this year. Speaking of resolutions, I think this is a good time to sit down and reflect. 

In a few months, I will have been working on Ask An Author 3.0 for three years. It's been a fun ride with a few bumps along the way, including the one I tripped over when I realized I forgot to get today's in order. And... The piggy bank is dry. I'll mark it as a sign to start 2024 off strong on the blog-side of things for our awesome community here. So, where do we go from here? Do I keep doing the same thing-- using reader-asked questions and ringing authors' doorbells like a Boy Scout selling popcorn? Do we switch things up a bit? Honestly, I'm open to feedback. I've contemplated creating a set of questions that would intrigue interviewees while capturing readers' attention, then ask random authors in our community instead of waiting for potential interviews to fall in my lap. 

But I combat taking the lead on stuff like this. I like hearing from those who listen, and that's you. What shall become of Ask An Author? Quitting is not an option for me. I want to feature authors on this site, and this is a way for me to do just that. While I ponder and hear back from y'all for a week or two, how about we make this edition a community event? Let's hear from the comment section a bit, eh? Since I've been tackling the idea of becoming a streamer for my writing... 

Chat, here are your questions:

  • What is your favorite story/collection on Gay Authors?
  • What is your favorite food?
  • If you could accomplish one thing for 2024, what would it be?

Sound off in the comments what you'd like to see of Ask An Author, plus your responses to these three questions!

Oy. You've got a tough job but you've been fantastic at it. 

  • What is your favorite story/collection on Gay Authors?

Probably the CAP series, but if I don't give @MrsgnomieBoss Nanny & Jay's Loelife an honorable mention she'll be all butthurt. 

  • What is your favorite food?

Toss up between a great burrito and a fantastic burger. Pizza is rarely shied away from either. 

  • If you could accomplish one thing for 2024, what would it be?

Find stability in my life. Last year was a rollercoaster and it seems like I got back in line when I meant to head for the exit. 

 

I like @Aditus's idea of featuring new authors. It's a great way to promote them. 

Maybe tear a page out of our collab. Have a couple of questions formatted a la Family Fued. So instead of asking for a specific answer it can be; "We surveyed one new author. Top 5 answers are on the board. Name a  character of yours you'd love to cuddle with." (Kage #1)

Great job. Keep it up!

Sorry, I am sure that I do not get the reference, but questions like that wouldn't tell me anything about them...?

Kage is my #1 character of mine I'd want to cuddle with. 

Even though the answers wouldn't tell you anything about the characters, they may inspire a reader to find the story and give it a whirl. Sometimes dropping a vague answer will push a new reader to discover more of an author's works.
