Not sure where to begin bragging about your accomplishments?

Here are a few interview questions to keep in mind when submitting an author interview.

  • What inspired you to write a book?
  • Was there a book or author that you admired that played a role when developing your book?
  • It is often said that to write something, you must believe in what you are writing. Do you agree with that?
  • Do you have a set schedule for writing, or are you one of those who writes only when they feel inspired?
  • Tell us about your writing style, how is it different from other writers?
  • What, according to you, is the hardest thing about writing? What would you say is the most natural aspect of writing?
  • Have you ever experienced “Writer’s Block”? How long do they usually last? Any tips you would like to share to overcome it?
  • Any advice you would like to give to aspiring writers?
  • Are you working on something new at the moment?
  • Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

A recommendation for you…

I love talking to authors and learning more about their writing process as I am writing my first novel alongside running the Book Smuggler’s Den. One book I recommend to aspiring writers that contact me is Blake Snyder’s Save the Cat. The Beat Sheets he shares in his books will change a script into a manuscript. Get more than a beta reader by signing up for their coaching service. Having a writing coach does wonders and I am astounded by the progress I have made using the Save the Cat philosophy.

Good luck, writers and I can’t wait to talk to more of you!
