Introducing Author Interviews

Author InterviewI’m starting a new feature on my blog. Each Friday, I’ll post an author interview. I plan to run this special posting until August 31, 2012. If I like it, I’ll keep it; if I find it takes up too much time, or is not working the way I hoped it would work, I’ll discontinue it.

Writers can participate in this author interview if…

a) they have published at least one book regardless of how it was published (traditional or independently)

b) they are published in fantasy, mystery, science fiction, romance, horror, contemporary, etc.

NOTE: I am not interested in interviewing authors who publish erotica. At the moment, I’d like to focus on fiction only.

I hope the writer interviews accomplish two things:

1) Readers discover new writers and new books.

2) Writers get to showcase themselves and their books.

Writers interested in being interviewed are asked to complete the following questions and send them to me—Diane—at

  1. This sounds like a great feature, and those are some great questions. You’ve made me wonder about my main character’s favourite flavour of ice cream…
    I look forward to reading interviews and perhaps finding new authors and books to read. 🙂
