Writers love to hear from our readers.

And we’ve found that readers love to talk with their favorite authors. That’s why we’re going to start a new BestSelling Reads Café.

The Café will be a place online where multiple members of BestSelling Reads will come together to respond to readers. It will take some time to set up, but we’re hoping to be able to use text, audio and video.

In the meantime, we’re asking: what do you want to know?

  • Where we get our ideas?
  • Are our characters based on real people?
  • How do you come up with your characters’ names?
  • Our pre-writing rituals?
  • Whether we prefer to create first drafts with pen on paper, a typewriter or a computer?

Or do you have some really different questions that you’ve been wondering about.

We also want to know what kind of format you’d like. Do you think connecting through social media, such as a Google Hangout, would be best? Are you interested in using video and audio, or do you feel more comfortable with text?

Let us know through the Comments, or send If there’s enough interest out there, we’ll set up a time and a channel where we’ll be able to interact.
