Interview Questions: Rough Draft

I want to interview some authors about their promotion methods, and I thought I’d ask all of you if you have any questions for them. Here are the questions I have so far – post any more you think of in the comments!

What do you wish you knew about promotion before your first novel came out?

Which has worked best for spreading the word about your novel, online promotion (website, email lists, social networking) or offline promotion (direct mail, booksignings, media ads)? Why?

If you could only promote your novel in ONE way, which way would you choose?

What’s the craziest thing you’ve done to promote a novel?

Tell me about your latest novel. Does it have any special challenges for promotion or interesting marketing angles?

A final fun one: What fictional character (film, TV, or literary) do you feel is most like you? Why?

  1. Katie, if you’d like to interview some of the novelists who are clients of mine, I’d be glad to facilitate that connection. Just LMK. KCWComm(at)rgv(dot)rr(dot)com or WillisWay(at)aol(dot)com.
