Amazon beta-testing @author

Amazon is beta testing a new Kindle bolt-on that will allow readers to directly ask an author a question about their book. The new service will be called @author. The questions will all be public (online, not embedded at the end of the book) and limited to just 100 characters. Let’s hope they have good filters for spam, trolls, and libel. Currently it’s being tested with eight big-name authors.
