Hi Everyone!
Lance Carbuncle and TNBBC would like to welcome you to Lance's Q&A session, which will kick off August 9th.

The layout and rules are pretty basic.

-We have a few threads for you to post your questions in. Try your best to keep your questions in line with the thread you are posting them in.

-You can go ahead and post questions at any time. Lance will most likely take the questions in the order of their appearances, and he will be checking in all week, starting on Aug 9th, to do his best to answer them for you! So be sure to keep popping back in!

-It is not necessary for you to have read his book in order to participate, though it sure would not hurt to come prepared :)

Thanks again for your interest! See you back here in a couple days!!

Well, the dates that were set for my Q&A have come and passed. I want to say a big thank you to everybody who participated. It was a lot of fun. I also want to thank Lori for helping me set everything up. It was very cool of her to help out. So, once more, thanks to everyone. Also, I am going to keep the group page open and still answer questions if people have anything else that the want to know. And I have one little favor to ask:

Please support independent authors. Yes, some of the self-published stuff out there is total shit. But, there are some really talented authors out there who either self-publish or go through small, independent publishing companies. Some of the independently published stuff out there is really worth checking out. And if you find some little known author who you enjoy, tell people about him or her. Write a review on Goodreads or Amazon. It really does help and you would not believe how much it is appreciated. Here is an example of how you can help:

1. Go on and click on the “cult fiction” tag for Smashed, Squashed, etc. (and any other tags you feel are appropriate.

2. Vote for Smashed, Squashed, etc, on some of the many Listopia lists on

3. Click on the “recommend” button for Smashed and send out the recommendation to all of your Goodreads friends.

4. Click on the “become a fan” button on my profile page. It will let people know that you are very cool. And you do want to be cool, don’t you?

Okay, enough of my begging. Thanks again to everybody. And keep an eye out for Grundish and Askew, it’s coming soon.

Thanks Lance for allowing me to such a big part of this! I had a lot of fun, and loved seeing everyones questions.

Lance is right, word of mouth goes such a long way for independant writers. We can do so much good for them by supporting them in the ways that Lance outlined above.

I am particularly proud of the fact that the members of TNBBC post their favorite goodreads authors on my group (although not all of them are self published) to draw attention to the lesser known but well written authors out there.

Thanks again, everyone, for participating, and thank you Lance for such a great experience.
