Looking for Other Authors to Interview

Hi All,

I've just started a blog recently called An E-Publisher's Manifesto: http://www.epubmanifesto.blogspot.com

I've got a new feature called 20 Honest Questions where I ask an author 20 bizarre and hopefully intriguing questions. I currently have Derek J Canyon up as my first interview and am looking to do more.

My blog is getting fairly decent traffic so there could be some nice exposure. If you're interested, feel free to email me at literarysnark@gmail.com or stop by the blog and drop a line in one of the comments!

I can't 100 percent promise and interview as it will depend on how many people sign on for this, but right now I definitely have some space.

Best,

Aaron
My new book COMPELLED is getting 5 star reviews!

This sounds like a great opportunity! I published my first e-book last week (a backlist title with rights now reverted to me) and just dropped by to read all the threads on marketing and pricing - everyone's advice is very much appreciated.

I've been a professional UK children's author for 10 years in print form and done all the usual things with my publisher, but marketing e-books clearly calls for a few new tactics, so I'd be game for an interview. Will email you.

Thanks Aaron

I'm definitely interested. Just published my first fantasy novel - The Elf Girl's Dream on Kindle. It's good to talk to others with similar thoughts and issues. I've also started a Blog: http://theelfgirlsdream.wordpress.com/ It all helps I guess.

Sounds good to me. I publish a blog at http://adrianvance.blogspot.com and have done several books on Kindle with more to come. My sales have not been "barn burners," but I think it will work out OK. It certainly is more satisfying than dealing with all the lazy agents and Ebenezer Scrooge type publishers, many of whom don't even pay the crappy royalties they owe. They know you can't sue them and hope to win unless you are Steven King so it's always "Crap on the author" day.

It appears you are being saturated by authors eager to exploit your offer. I will likewise stand in line, if you will consider an author of erotica.

Thank you for the opportunity.

Hi Aaron ~ thank you for sharing and inviting us authors to this great interview opportunity! I would love to be part of it ~ answering all intriguing questions ~ revealing more about my MAHALO SUNRISE which is a true crime, thriller, drama with a touch of romance. It is my story.. it includes Hawaii, murder, drug dealing, murder, FBI, money-laundering... well, and a few romantic moments, not many though ~ Mahalo Sunrise has been published in English and German and it will service as the basis for a screenplay... . Please contact me ~ Monique

Hi Aaron--

Your blog looks very professional. Really sweet layout. Congrats on your sales. I dread that your bubble concept is correct and already due. And me just in the game.

My first novel is:

http://www.amazon.com/ACROSS-THE-DESPERATE-MILES-ebook/dp/B004GUSAUW

And my second will be out in about 6 months...

Thank you...

Your first 20 questions...Good God, that guy is witty.

Hi, I'd be pleased to answer your interview questions. I've just published my first novel, Hidden Gems, as an ebook, and I'm already getting some good feedback from readers.

Good luck with your blog.

Hey All,

Thanks for responding. I have had a few authors requesting an interview and I'm slightly behind in getting back to people, but I do intend to try and get back to everyone if possible.

However, I can't promise every single author will get interviewed for my site.

Please email me at literarysnark@gmail.com to make sure I see your response.

Also check out the blog http://epubmanifesto.blogspot.com in order to understand the kind of audience I've got coming to my site...it won't suit every author.

Best,

Aaron
