The one thing all authors want is… for people to read their books and one way to do this is by getting your name out there. There are many ways to do this and it will not be an over night success story… everything with writing takes time. 🙂 but here is one way I think is useful… Author interviews.
It doesn’t really matter what stage of the writing process you are in but I would say if you are in the editing stages and know your book will be finished soon then it might be worth trying to get your name out there early to get peoples attention for when you do finally release that book. One handy way is bloggers… A lot of bloggers are authors that are using a blog as part of their author platform to make it easier for readers to find and get to know them but what a lot of them put on their blogs as well as their own work is author interviews. Author interviews obviously help the author being interviewed but also helps the blogger by giving them content to blog about, reach out to any readers the author has collected and shows they support their fellow author buddies 🙂 Some bloggers are not authors but love to blog!!! (I might add 🙂 ). A good way to get your name out there is to have your own blog and exchange author interviews with other bloggers and authors. A blog is a handy promotional tool because you can show potential readers what you are all about, what you do in your spare time and what it is you are working on next. One way to find willing bloggers is to ask in writers groups online, some post adverts on social media asking for willing participants or you might just get chatting to one and ask cheekily.
