It’s that time again–time for another round of ASK ALLY! The gameshow sensation that’s sweeping the nation.
Okay. So it’s not a gameshow. And it’s not a sensation. But it is a lot of fun.
What happens: you guys can post questions in the comments section of THIS blog. Then in a week or so I will turn off comments and go through and answer as many questions as I can.
But there’s a catch!
1. I will not answer questions that are already answered here on the blog, in the FAQ, and in other extremely obvious places. (example: how many Gallagher Girl books will there be? How did I get the idea for the Gallagher Academy? Will there be a movie? Etc.)
Those questions have been asked. They’ve been answered. Let’s cover NEW territory here, okay. So before you ask a question please make sure your question hasn’t already been answered (chances are it has)
2. I will not answer questions that are spoilers for future books. (Will we find out what happened to Cammie’s dad? Why is the Circle after Cammie? What is Hale’s first name? Etc.)
3. Duplicate questions will be deleted and will not be answered.
Past experience has taught me that these types of posts will get hundreds of comments–and that’s EXTREMELY cool! But going through that many comments takes a lot of time that I should be using writing more books.
People always post the same questions over and over, usually citing that “they’re too busy to read all the comments to make sure this isn’t a duplicate.” Well, that implies that your time is far more valuable than my time. And that’s not cool.
In other words, if you don’t have time to read and not ask duplicates, please don’t ask questions at all. I have a massive deadline and other things on my plate and I would love for this to be as efficient as possible.
4. And finally please post no more than three questions each, and please make your question as concise as possible.
Example: “Dear Ally, how did you decide to have Kat go after a cursed gem in Heist 3 instead of another piece of Holocaust art?”
As a rule, questions shouldn’t be more than 30-40 words long.
Have fun and happy reading!
EDITED TO ADD: AFTER HUNDREDS OF COMMENTS (WOW!) I THINK THE TIME HAS COME TO DISABLE THE COMMENTS. MOLLY AND I ARE GOING TO START GOING THROUGH THE QUESTIONS SOON AND WILL HOPEFULLY HAVE SOME ANSWERS UP WITHIN A WEEK OR SO.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR ENTHUSIASM. I’M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO ANSWERING AS MANY QUESTIONS AS POSSIBLE.
