“Ask the Author” segment

Something occurred to me today. I’ve asked questions of many people, but not of you, my lovely readers, directly. I’ve intended to, started to, but somehow I always manage to get distracted and forget.

If there’s one thing I’ve learnt since beginning my journey as an author, it’s that I’m lucky to have such intelligent, varied, and loyal readers.

Now that we all know what I think of my readers, I’d love to make a serious request of y’all (yes, I know, my Southern is showing lol). I’d love to start an “ask the author” segment where I answer questions that my readers want to know the answers. Just be forewarned, as I’ve told previous employers… make sure you really want to know the answer to your question, because you might not be ready to hear what I have to say.

If you have more than one question, that’s perfectly fine with me. Pick one or send me many. In any case, let me hear what you want to know! I can’t wait to read your replies.

I’ll be focusing on one question a week, every week. Don’t worry if you don’t have a question for me today, if you think of one tomorrow, next week, or in six months. Simply send me an email with your question and it will be added to my reader inquiries list and will be answered!

Also, don’t limit yourself to the obvious questions. Ask the weird, off the wall, or just plain and pure curiosity question. It can be about one of my books, one of the covers (I love ’em all!), about me, or….. Just remember, be careful what you wish to know, because I can and will answer. *evil cackle*

Oh, and when I reach 10 questions (real questions, not just to make the count, lol – this will go for each 10 I answer so this will be an ongoing giveaway game.), I’ll choose a winner for a $10 gift certificate to Dreamspinner Press.

Here we go! Let’s hear your best questions (and nothing is off limits!). I’ll begin answering them on Mondays… so see you again soon.

Thanks in advance for participating.


About the author


Tempeste O’Riley grew up in the deep south and escaped her conservative, oppressive roots as soon as she could. Tempe is an out and proud omnisexual/bi-woman whose best friend growing up had the courage to do what she couldn’t – defy the hate and come out. He has been her hero ever since.

Though new to writing M/M, she has done many things in her life but writing has always drawn her back – no matter what else life has thrown her way. She counts her friends, family, and Muse as her greatest blessings in life.
