I think everyone can agree that trying to market yourself and gain followers is rough, especially for an author. Too often we compete against one another to showcase our books, when really, we should be utilizing each other's experiences. The best way to learn about the industry is to talk with peers.
Therefore, I would like to start author interviews both on my blog and my website. I want to help authors introduce themselves to the writing community and really showcase what they do. In turn, I'd like them to provide information to the readers so that other authors can learn from them.
But I need help getting started.
First of all, as readers, what do you like to know about authors? What questions do you wish you could ask them? What would you like to learn about the publishing industry?
As authors, what questions do you love to answer? What are the harder ones you prefer to avoid? What wealth of knowledge can you share with your readers?
Once I have a list of questions available, I'll open up my author website to accept author interviews. These will be posted 2-4 times a month (depending on interest), and all I ask in return is that you share my interview with you around to help support us both, as well as the readers and writers of the community.
I'm looking forward to meeting you!
