I am immensely grateful to everyone who has read and shared this story, and on Friday May 14th, 9 PM Central Time (UTC -6), I will hold an AMA (Ask Me Anything) event on Discord (in the Story Discussion channel), followed by the posting and reading-aloud of Stellar Elegy's first full chapter!
However, you don't have to join the Discord to have your questions answered. I will answer questions live there (and generally hang out on voice chat), but you can send me questions in the comments here, on Mastodon, Tumblr, or however else you want to reach me, and the full set of questions and answers will be posted here afterwards. They can be about any aspect of the story - the inspiration, the work process, the Easter eggs - or about anything you'd like to know about me (within reason)!
See you then!
