Blog Post #7 – Interview an author

Interview an author

Welcome to the blog post prompt for this week. If you’re blogging along this week, or coming back another time to join in, please add your link in the comments so we can check out your blog too. If you add a link, please visit one or two of the other links and add a comment.

You have a group of readers who enjoy your books and are following your website. This is a wonderful place to interview a fellow author who writes books your readers may also enjoy.

Simply choose an author with a similar readership as you. For example, if you write picture books, find another picture book author. You could also choose an author with books that are complementary to your books. For example, if you write stories about dinosaurs, you could find an author who writes non-fiction books about dinosaurs.

Contact the author and invite them to answer a few simple questions. When writing questions, think of information that is of interest to your readers as well as pique their interest so they will go and check out the books by your featured author. Also, keep the questions simple so it’s not too hard for your featured author to complete them. Don’t forget to request a photo.

Once your featured author has returned their questions and photo, load it on your blog for your readers to enjoy. Remember to include any links to the authors website, Facebook page and any other places to purchase their books,

If you are using this prompt on your blog, add your link in the comments. I look forward to reading your interviews.
