Del Rey is running a John Jackson Miller Q&A on Twitter and Facebook. Just use the hashtag #AskJJM on Twitter or head on over to their Facebook page to leave your question. You have until September 24 to enter your questions. Whether it’s about his latest book A New Dawn or just a Star Wars question in general, it’s all fair game.
