It is hard to believe that we are now four months into the year and the book reading and interview at the cafe has been going very well. I am delighted that so many people are interested in answering their own questions instead of just leaving it to me.
You can find all the previous book readings here from some wonderful authors.
I am now booking a month ahead and getting ready to send out the next phase of interview questions. If you are in the Cafe and Bookstore then please just email me on Sally.firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know that you are interested.
If you are not already on the shelves of the bookstore you will find details below on what I need to provide you with the promotion to get you there.
Author Book Reading and Interview.
If this was a real cafe and bookstore I would set up regular book readings and interviews with the authors on the shelves.. But they is no reason why we cannot do that here.. The only thing missing of course is the customers who would be listening to the reading and asking questions of the author.
But I have that covered.
Here is how it works…
The author will answer three of my general questions. They will also select a short extract from their book to share in the post. I will then ask three personalised questions.
I will then do the introduction, the book blurb, about the author and the book links.
Then I will ask those who read the interview to add their questions to the comments section of the post for the author to answer.
This way we do manage to get some interaction, a wide range of questions and a chance to meet the author is a slightly different way. So far this theme has proved very popular
First and foremost — the authors must be willing and able to be around on the day or next day of the interview to answer the questions. Most authors pop in once or twice during the evening for the next couple of days to respond to questions and comments. B
For those of you who are not already in the bookstore.
If you are not on the shelves then that is easy to fix.. I will do an individual promotion for you first and the details are in this post.
Look forward to hearing from you… email@example.com Thanks Sally
