|A Tagxedo based on our interview|
Yesterday, she featured our interview. Please check it out at http://wp.me/p18Ztn-ng. She sent us questions and asked for other information. Mom and I sat down and filled it out together on a recent visit. I'm always unsure how these scripted interviews will come across. I shouldn't have worried. Ms. Bailey puts a magazine article spin on her interviews. When she's done, it comes across like a personal sit down in a coffee shop. She took our answers and weaved them into a song. Beautiful.
Mom and I were feeling a bit burned out on interviews, because the questions can be repetitive and unimaginative. Then the final product is a cut and paste, so it lacks personality. As a reader myself, I like to read books from interesting and engaging authors. Readers have so many choices these days, and many books are well-written. Authors have to sell themselves as much as their books.
Will an interesting and entertaining author interview persuade you to buy his/her book?
