I had a simple question to ask on Reddit, and what I got was a great response. I’m not used to using Reddit, so I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of discussion there was because of this question.
All I asked was about fan-friendly fantasy authors, and I got a big list of them. You can check out the comments here.
While I asked about which authors tend to communicate with readers well, answer emails, respond on Twitter, and so on, I was surprised to see some of the bigger fantasy names actually take part in this discussion. Janny Wurts responded. Some others, like Django Wexler, J. D. Hallowell, and Krista D. Ball were active. But then we had the biggest name of all. Can you guess? Brandon Sanderson!
You may be asking why I asked that question. Well, I have my reasons. Reasons that will be apparent in late October if all goes well.
