So I mentioned at the end of last week that I would be announcing a new contest today, and true to my word, here it is!

The Question Contest - Week 1

How to Enter: It's very, very simple. All you have to do to enter is, as a comment to this post, submit a question that you would like me to answer. That's it! The question must conform to The Rules, as listed below, and I will only accept the first question posted by a given user (so there's no need to post multiple questions). I will accept questions posted from Monday (as soon as this post goes live) to Friday, (12:00 AM CST).

How you Win: On the Saturday after the contest closes, I will draw a name randomly from a hat (probably on video, so everyone can see...) and that person wins a free copy of H2O the Novel! That's it! It's really that simple!

The Rules: Basically, restrict your questions to something you would ask someone in normal, polite society. You can ask me questions about myself, my home life, my family, my books, my game design, my hobbies, my experiences collaborating, or whatever! Just something that you want to know about me, my work, or my life. I reserve the right to disregard any questions that I deem impolite, rude, irrelevant, or potentially hurtful or harmful. Remember: only one question per person, as I will be running this contest each week. If you have more than one question, save it for next week.

So that's it, Faithful! Post your questions below!

I will take the questions that you ask and then answer them here in future blog posts! :D

(Also, there's currently another way to win a copy of H2O the Novel on Goodreads here!)
