Next Saturday I’ll be trialling a new idea: live author chat with fans. After chatting to one of my fans on facebook about my writing, her writing, and other authorial questions it occurred to me that it could be fun to offer a live chat session as a regular thing.
Questions about my books and my characters or how I got published are very welcome. Also please ask about my favourite authors, books, films, hobbies or recommendations of things I like.
I’m also happy to chat about your book ideas but I can’t offer to read your text and make comments, I’m afraid, so short questions only on that topic, please. Obviously no abusive behaviour will be permitted, so please don’t say anything to offend or annoy other chat participants. It will be text chat, not video chat, although I may arrange video another time.
To prepare for the chat:
1. Download Skype
2. Request to friend rhiannonlassiter. (It can take awhile to download and install skype so do this at least the day before!)
3. Find out what GMT (Greenwich Meridian Time) is in your timezone, this timezone converter will help.
4. At 14:00 GMT on Saturday 22 January 2011 send me a chat request and I will add you to the group chat.
See you there!
