Welcome to story and chai’s “Ask an Author.” Here, we will respond to questions we’ve received about the writing and publication process. You can ask new questions on Twitter, Facebook, or through email (jazobair AT comcast DOT net). Writing, querying, revising, platform, publicity, author readings–it’s all fair game. Sometimes, we’ll ask other authors to “guest answer” your questions as well. We hope this is a helpful feature for writers at all stages of the process, and we look forward to your questions!
