AMA Extravaganza! (Q&A with Gail Carriger)

My dear gentle reader, I do hope all of you know that I am always available to answer your questions here, or on Twitter, or on Goodreads.  However, a sanctioned conversation is always a good time. And license to go a little crazy.
So I am running a Facebook AMA on my Author Page today, and r/fantasy is hosting me for a Reddit AMA tomorrow!


Facebook Event AMA via my Author Page all day today. I’m hoping that by making the event go for most of the day that I can catch those of you overseas for a change, as well as my lovely locals.


If you are a redditor swim by and say hello. I would love to have a chat with you.

You can ask me about anything (although I may, of course, choose not to answer you). I imagine the Facebook AMA is likely to focus on my world and my characters and what I have planned for the future, a lot like my author event conversations. The Reddit AMA tends to lean more into the business of writing, so we will likely get on to my decision to go hybrid, the challenges of the various publications models, and that sort of thing. Although I cannot predict the future.

Anyway, please do stop by if only to say hello.

MaddieTV says of Manners & Mutiny:
“Filled with humor and wit, the young girls of Geraldine’s school were constantly challenged to dangerous adventures, and inspired all readers.”

Quote of the Day:

“If we can’t write diversity into sci-fi, then what’s the point? You don’t create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones.”

~ Jane Espenson (from interview with Advocate.com)

    Got the book, read the book LOVED the book!! It was interesting to see how Preshea grew up and to find out her back story. Sorry that her marriages were all yuck (but then of course you wouldn’t have had to write this book if her life was all peaches and cream…) but sooo glad she found her Scotsman!! And of course who doesn’t want to spend a little more time with His Over-the-topness Akeldelma?!? 🙂 Thanks for a great read, I got really excited for the Custard ProtocoI because I read the date wrong- didn’t have on my specs- and thought it was JUNE 19…sadly mistaken. 😉 But I was comforted with the Poison. Which just sounds wrong. Anyway, thank you!
