I made a joke on Twitter yesterday about “the FAQ I’ll never post”… and then I thought about it, and tried to decide whether I needed an FAQ. I think I might; I do seem to be getting a few basic questions over and over in interviews. A few examples:
- Why is the book called The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms when we see only a few of them?
- Which mythologies were your inspiration in creating the cosmology of the book?
- Is this your first novel?
I haven’t yet gotten a lot of questions about the plot or characters of 100K, though, which would be the basis of this FAQ. So I’ll ask you guys: should I post a 100K FAQ? What questions about the plot and/or characters of the book would you like answered?
(Reminder: I’m in crunch mode on book 3, so my replies — if any — will be a bit slow. Feel free to talk amongst yourselves, though!)
