Client requests for upcoming item specific to authors.

Hi everyone !
Just a random idea I had there.

I was thinking about a way to make it possible for clients who likes specific authors make special requests for items. I know in theory they could just send an email trough the profile link and ask but I wonder if there would be a more friendly user way of making it possible for a client who, for examples, likes the style of an author, to make request for an item they would buy if the author was to create it.

It would mostly guarantee at least 1 sale(but surely others would follow), and also give inspiration for new item ideas on the part of creators/authors.
