Yes, this is a serious question. Suppose you were able to visit the dynamic duo of magicals and their cats, brooms, the talking house and perhaps even Babs.
What would you ask them?
Where would you like to go with them?
Is there anything else you can think of to do, say, ask or see when you’re there?
You may wonder about all these questions. Perhaps you think that I am running out of ideas and inspiration for the Hilda the Wicked Witch series.
None of that, though, dear reader, none of that at all.
The reason why I ask all this is that it’s the privilege of the (independent) author to ask his or her fans/readers. To get a feeling of what you, distinguished reader, would like to see happening in one of the next Hilda books. For instance, Book 13, Hilda – The House, emerged from a spontaneous e-mail that a fan sent me, asking if there was a possibility to put a little more focus on the House. And behold: it happened.
As you, dear follower of Hilda’s antics, are aware by now, there’s not much that can’t happen in her world, so if you feel you have a great, grand or even a fun idea for something you’d like to encounter together with our two heroes (oh, sorry, the cats insist so make that four heroes) then do let me know, either in the comments below, or take the bold step to send me an e-mail!
