Q:

I have a question for /u/Chtorrr How hard is it to setup AMAs? Do most people reject you initially or are they mostly open to it?

A:

Most are very open to it! I don't usually get outright refusal, often it's just not a good time because they're busy with deadlines or something. Usually once I explain that the AMA can happen whenever is best for the author they will schedule a date in the future or set a reminder to get back to me.

I also often get a bunch of other really cool people when I reach out about one person. I sent an email to Image comics about Robert Kirkman (he's too busy right now) and got Brian K. Vaugh, Rick Remender, Marcos Martin, Kieron Gillen, & Steve Seagle. I always let publicists, agents, & authors know that I'm glad to hear from any other authors who might want to do an AMA. Sometimes their books would be more popular elsewhere so I direct them to the mods of another subreddit like /r/GetMotivated, /r/IAmA, /r/politics, /r/trees etc........

I'll keep trying for Robert Kirkman, but I'm very happy to hear from all the other authors there who want to do an AMA too.


Q:

Hi, I have a question for Chtorrr. How annoyed were you after the 10th link to the /r/books AMA?

A:

Not really annoyed. I was expecting this. Same thing happened for the David J. Peterson AMA a couple days ago. Any time a crosspost gets popular this happens.


Q:

CAN I DATE YOUR AVATAR!?

A:

I usually use this as an avatar. I don't think you'd want to date it. It would end badly for you.

It's a Chtorran


Q:

I'd hit it

A:

It'd eat you!


Q:

Question for /u/Chtorr, how many times for people to ask a question in this post instead of the /r/books post and you having to redirect them would it take until you became a screaming sun?

A:

I was totally expecting this so I'm not really bothered by it.


Q:

But could you give me a ballpark estimate for how many times it would take to actually make you mad? You seem like an exceptionally calm person.

A:

This kind of thing really isn't going to get me riled up. There are far more irritating things that happen moderating large subreddits. Just imagine /r/StarWars when a new trailer hits?


Q:

Did you have to post in /r/books because there's no proof it's Felicia Day?

A:

She posted about it on Twitter & the entire AMA was done on video. It'll be released in the near future.

You should click one of the many, many links.

Q:

You said in the book that writing the Guild was a painful experience. Can you expound? I'm curious if it's just self doubt, too many choices, etc?
