Conversations & Comfort

After experimenting with a spoiler-full discussion board on the GH website and asking various people for feedback about that, it is clear to me that I haven’t yet found a configuration that works. I’m trying to decide whether to scrap the idea all together, or to try something new. 

Just another pole.
Just another pole.

I would like to have a place where people would feel comfortable asking questions about GH and my other novels, and more important still, where people might actually discuss the work. This is pretty self-serving, I’m happy to admit: it’s both useful and interesting to see how readers interpret what I write, what confuses them or works for them.  Of course the fact that it is a board that I set up means that some people won’t be comfortable voicing their opinions, no matter how clearly I say that I do not take offense at constructive criticism offered in a mutually respectful setting.  

So you see my dilemma.  Thus we have yet another poll (a double one, this time) that I hope people will take a few moments to respond to. It would be a great help to me. You are welcome to make additional remarks in the comments, but that is by no means necessary.

If you chose the first answer in this first poll, you’re finished — and thank you. If you chose the second or third, please go on to the next poll.

  1. having said i like the idea of conversations, but the technology is more than i want to deal with. my reasoning is that i’m an older reader, and not great with computer technology – always happy to leave comments, and become involved in discussions as long as it is an easy to follow format. i would imagine there are quite a few people in my situation, so would really appreciate that being taken into account

  2. I very much enjoy the conversations but if you move it to Facebook I don’t have an account or want one so that will be that.

  3. Which I realize sounds meanier than I mean it to. It’s just that I will greatly miss these conversations.

  4. The second question didn’t really give an option I’m comfortable with. I like the conversational aspect. I think it’s good to have it separate for Gilded Hour, but maybe it could be a separate page on the weblog. I would probably view and/or join in about once a week or so. Any forum is OK with me as long as I can get a note in my email in box that tells me to have a look. Perhaps that rules out Facebook, I’m not sure. I hope this helps…….
