I'm not sure everyone is aware of this, but the book club discussion questions you see in the backs of your favorite novels are often written by the authors themselves. I think that's sort of funny because my urge in composing questions is to try to encourage a Polly Prissy Pants style conversation:
But that's not how book club discussions go, is it? Even when the author is present, the group is usually pretty frank about what they liked, disliked, or flat-out didn't get about your book. That's cool. That kind of feedback has been very influential in my development as a novelist, and I've been working hard at becoming more direct with each book. That said, I'll probably never let go of my love for twisty, weird storytelling.
