IAm John Green, author the #1 New York Times bestseller THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, and I'm doing this AMA entirely so that I can get some hats.
I wrote the novels Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, and The Fault in Our Stars, which has spent more than a consecutive year on the NYT bestseller list.
I also co-created the popular YouTube video channels vlogbrothers, crashcourse, and mental_floss with my brother Hank.
I am not here to promote my new project or anything. I am doing this AMA solely in the hopes of acquiring hats. I hear they last forever. EDIT: It turns out that they do not last forever, and now half of this AMA makes no sense. Sorry about that. RIP Reddit Hats. 4/1/2013 - later in the day 4/1/2013.
I am happy to answer your questions about writing, YouTube, publishing, or whatever else. PROOF.
You're the best, Reddit.
