Want to know where bestselling author Haruki Murakami gets his ideas or even want to ask him about a dilemma in your own life? Murakami is ready for you. 

The author will answer questions on his website in the form of an advice column, according to the Agence France-Press.

“After so long, I want to exchange emails with readers,” Murakami said, according to his publisher Shinchosa Publishing. 

A spokesperson for Shinchosa Publishing said the writer will “receive questions of any kind,” from a query about Murakami’s love for cats to a dilemma about the reader’s love life. 

According to the AFP, fans can send in questions until the end of January and Murakami’s answers will be posted over the coming months. Shinchosa Publishing said the e-mail address to which readers should send questions is not yet available.
