I have to thank author Dawn Thompson, who doesn't know me from Adam but still won a charity bet for me with the title of her new paranormal romance, The Brotherhood. A very nice donation will go out to the Make-A-Wish foundation, courtesy of my opponent, who probably won't scoff at my powers as the Trend Oracle any more.
Today I'd also like to discuss the future of the Friday 20. I started this weekly Q&A feature about a year and a half ago, as an evolved form of the old Friday night Think Tank chat sessions I used to moderate over at FMwriters.com. Offering ideas on how to tackle writing- and publishing-related problems is fun for me, and I hope has proven helpful to you.
This week, I'd like you to answer some questions:
Should I keep the Friday 20 feature on PBW?
Are there any ways I can make it better?
Would you rather have a new focus topic each week, or keep it open for any?
Would you be interested in having some guest authors stop by to answer your questions?
There's one more problem with this feature that I'd like to resolve. Whatever we post here can be read by anyone, and as you've seen some people who come here are not our friends or colleagues. If you have a sensitive question that can in any way be used as ammunition against you, don't post it. Send it to me at LynnViehl@aol.com with a subject line of Private Comment, and I'll answer it via e-mail.
