This hour:
Ken Liu - Facts about Chinese languages "I can answer questions about spoken Chinese topolects and the writing system. E.g., “Does Classical Chinese really have no grammar?” “Is there just one variety of Cantonese?” “What is the most accurate way to describe the language a Chinese book is written in?” etc.

Ken Liu - Copyright and the Writer "I can answer questions about general copyright topics, especially things like copyright registration, media rights, “fair use,” what is the “legal answer” vs the practical answer, where to go to get help, etc. Warning: answers are for education/information purposes only and will in no event constitute legal advice."

K. Tempest Bradford - Technology for Writers. "I can answer questions about what tech/gadgets to buy, best software, online/social media presence, and related topics."

Stacy Shabalin and Dan Slater KDP/CreateSpace "Happy to answer any questions you might have about deciding between independent and traditional publishing, preparing your first indie title, making the most of your self-published books, and anything in between."

Coleen Barr and Scott Jacobi - Audible/ACX "We are happy to answer questions about the benefits to publishing an audiobook, audiobook rights, what you need to get started on ACX, casting a narrator for your production, distribution questions, how you get paid, and any other questions you might have."
