Read The Best Interviews -- Then Submit Your Own

BookMarketingBuzzBlog has interviewed hundreds and hundreds of leading book publishing experts, professionals, editors, authors, literary agents, book reviewers, and influential people over the last five and a half years. Below are 11 standout interviews for your reading pleasure. Please share this gift with others.

Also, I want to offer something to every recently or soon-to-be published  author out there --regardless of genre, regardless of whether you are a best-seller or a first-timer, and regardless of whether you are with a major publisher or are self-published – I am happy to interview you and share it with my readers.

I believe every writer deserves a voice and an opportunity to be heard.

All that you have to do is this:

Please submit answers to the questions below and be sure to include:
-the author's full name
--complete book title
--a one-paragraph bio of the author
--a link to one site or social media page (not 6 links)

Here are the questions – please have each answer follow each question:

1. What really inspired you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea or experience and conveying it into a book?

2. What is it about and whom do you believe us your targeted reader?

3. What do you hope will be the everlasting thoughts for readers who finish your book? What should remain with them long after putting it down?

4. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers?

5. What trends in the book world do you see and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading?

6. What great challenges did you have in writing your book?

7. If people can only buy one book this month, why should it be yours?

No need to send me head shots or cover images.
