New Kindle Feature Lets You Ask Authors Questions
Why did the beautiful CIA operative seduce the handsome yet ruthless former KGB agent in Chapter Four? And why didn't the mysterious clairvoyant use her psychic powers to pinpoint the serial killer's location?
Questions arise when you're reading a book. Many readers--if the author were near--would likely seek additional clarification on key plot points or characters. And non-fiction readers might pepper the writer with questions pertaining to the book's thesis, or to correct a factual error.
How It Works
Say you're reading a Kindle book and want to question the author about a particular passage. Using the 5-way controller, you highlight the passage and type “@author,” followed by your question. Next, you select "save & share" from the options at the bottom of the note window.
