Authors Answer 58 – Author Online Hangouts

I Read Encyclopedias for Fun

In the past, long before the internet, it was difficult to interact with authors. They could be contacted by mail, and maybe you could see them at an event, but it was not easy to seek them out otherwise. These days, the internet has provided both authors and readers a way to communicate easily. Some authors are very involved with the public, others are not. So, where can you find us online?

Scheduling posts apparently doesn’t work

Based on somebody else saying they had a problem with it, I tried to schedule my previous post instead of publishing it immediately; it published immediately anyway. I’d never tried this before but I assume the feature hasn’t been nonfunctional for the entire time that it’s existed, so it’s probably yet another example of an “upgrade” making something worse.

I’m scheduling this post for 6:00 PM Central Time tonight (Dec 10), so if you see it before that, this makes twice.

(Or maybe it was just a time zone issue? Can the first person who sees this please comment and say what time it was?)
