    Rhys Question! What’s your favorite easter egg for any of your characters, i.e. something you know about your characters that isn’t in any of the books.

  2. Tyra Berger

    I would love to be at the brunch! Of course I wouldn’t be able to eat anything because I would be so excited. LOL Thanks for the opportunity.

  3. I would really want him to talk to Rick. I can see him needing to find closure with his mother, but I would want him to be able to say goodbye to Rick. Ben is beneath consideration, but Rick. Even if it was just an “I love(d) you. I’m sorry.”

    I love seeing Greg get sucked into the story while he is narrating. πŸ™‚

  5. Stephanie VO

    I love how you did export that different in the cultures in your books.

  6. Susan Cosnick

    Rhys, you also have inspired me to explore Korean cuisine. It has gone from something I had not given a thought to, to something I really think I will like.

  7. Elizabeth Marshall

    My first time watching a live chat. Finding it very interesting! πŸ™‚

  8. I am so loving Greg’s reading from “Dirty Bits”! I fell in love with it when i read it, seeing Jae’s P.O.V was so emotional (for me at least!).

  9. kanundra

    Sooo sleepy, but you are both such fun. Don’t want to go to sleep! lol

  10. Maite

    I made it to 3!!! I have to leave soon and I don’t want to. I could listen to you guys chat all day. 😘😘😘

    Love hearing you read an excerpt, Greg. And great seeing you, Rhys, met you at San Diego GRL for a bit πŸ™‚ Have to go out, but happy to watch some of the live cast πŸ™‚

      I’m not really into PI kinda stuff. But you know, I’m gonna have to go buy the first book here… lol! Already blazed through Greg’s sci fi works. πŸ™‚ hehe and loved Black Dog Blues. That was my first ever Audiobook!

      1. kanundra

        I’m having tired buying syndrome…. i bought the whole series. haha

  12. Juli-Anna Dobson

    I wish I could actually listen but I’m stuck at my mom’s house right now. So I don’t know if this has been answered but when can we expect to see Absence in audio?

  13. Rhys, what is your method of coming up with ideas? Or if they just come to you, is there something you do to inspire yourself creatively? I adore you guys, I’m so impressed with both of your works!

    1. I’d love that as well. I am horrible at figuring out how words should sound if I’ve never heard them before. Guess that is why audio books are great when the narrator really nails it.

  14. (DON’T COUNT ME – I already won something). I am really enjoying this joint interview/conversation between the two of you! Looking forward to all your future projects – together and separately. This is a nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

    1. meep

      oops I didn’t think of saying that – got a bit caught up listening.

  15. Question for Greg: have you ever just HAD to read out loud from a book you were reading /working on for someone sporadically when coming to a great scene? Going like, “You have got to listen to this:….”

  16. And here I am again! I’ve managed to catch a little of the YouTube live stream, but looking forward to watching the entire video later!

  17. Sarah Slocum

    When I need something to make me smile or keep me awake while driving I always put on one of Rhys’s books. Murder and Mayhem is one of my favorites. Especially the mayhem and mcginnis cake I had made after reading it again.

  18. meep

    You guys are such fun.

    Rhys – Do you keep track of the pop-culture references you slide in there? Notice many in your books, probably miss more πŸ˜‰

  19. I’m a book and a word nerd. Rhys is one of my favorite authors and Greg…you rock her books.

    I don’t have any questions, but I’m enjoying this live video chat.

  20. Karen

    Rhys always has such amazing tours, this is a fantastic idea! I am loving it ❀️

  21. Hi, fellow book nerds πŸ™‚ I am awake in the UK, Cambridge, so what would accent would Greg think that I might have and how does he acquire/research the different variants and dialects that each country has?

    1. kanundra

      Uk here too πŸ™‚ I think we’re bonkers… or just love these two!

      1. Hello there Kanundra πŸ˜€ It is a wonderful way to meet your favourite authors and now the master of book narrating – yay. It would be crazy if they could also view all of us as well – apart from me as I like to hide πŸ˜€

      2. kanundra

        I totally like to hide too, but author here too, I just love Rhys and Greg. Fan girl here haha πŸ™‚

  22. Elizabeth Marshall

    Lol. Loving this! I have a question… Has there ever been a book, or particular character/plot, that you’ve read that annoyed you to the point of throwing it?

  23. Miranda P

    Really enjoying this and I love the Easter eggs in the books I always get excited when I get the refrence.

  24. So awesome listening to the Dirty Bits!
    That was such a hard and emotional scene! Hearing it from Jae’s POV is real special.

    1. Elizabeth Marshall

      Tone! yes! One of the reasons why I love your books. It flows and the characters are alive. I’ve read so many books that are interesting but seem stilted because of the lack of personality given to the characters themselves. Brilliant writing and bringing them to life through narrating!

  25. I love listening to conversations between Jae and Ichi. The Korean vs Japanese accent. It’s so impressive to listening to the switch between them, Greg!

  26. This is so much fun. I haven’t thought much about the process of turning written characters into audio characters; it is a fascinating process. I fell in love with Montoya while listening to Murder and Mayhem (I had already fallen in love with Rook when I first read the book).

  27. This has been delightful – I’m really enjoying the hell out of you both. Thanks for organizing this R&G. πŸ˜€
