A short while ago I received an email from Smashwords announcing Author Interviews. I didn’t have time then to investigate, so I put it off until tonight. Now I have an interview ‘published’ at the eBook distribution site to allow readers to discover a little more about me.
If you are published on Smashwords, you too can post an interview and share a little about yourself to your readers. All you have to do is visit the Manage Interview page to read the instructions and then clicked the link to Proceed to Your Interview.
The next screen is self-explanatory. All you need to do is answer the question or choose another question. When you’re done, click preview, read it for mistakes then click PUBLISH.
That’s it. The image you use on Smashwords will accompany the interview, and a list of your books will appear beneath it. Links to your favourite social media (Twitter; Facebook; etc.) are listed in the margin to help visitors share your interview. A counter below the Share with Friends box allows authors to know how many times the interview has been viewed.
These interviews provide one more avenue to connect with readers. It takes only about 30 to 45 minutes to do, so don’t pass up the opportunity.
Authors can update their interview at any time.
