The “Ask the Author” program was developed by Simon & Schuster Digital in partnership with VYou.com. Using the new video platform, readers can interact with their favorite authors through videos by submitting questions that authors can respond in video posts.

The page already features ten authors such as Jenna Black, Pete Cerqua and Brad Thor. The publisher will regularly add new authors to the page.
