I have been thinking about how to make interviews more interesting and I had an idea over the weekend. What if I solicited my readers, or fans of the authors I’m interviewing, for questions? There are a few reasons for this. First, authors tend to get asked the same questions over and over again. What better way to shake things up a bit than by adding a fresh perspective to the mix? Secondly, there isn’t much that gets people more excited and involved than their participation.
I hope this is popular, because I think it could be a lot of fun for everyone involved. If this works out the way I hope (nothing ever does) then this will be a regular feature that I’ll add onto each interview. So stay tuned. If you think that this is a good idea, help it fly by asking a question or spreading the word.
Here are the details:
I already have all of my questions for the author written out and proofed. I want you to leave a comment (or email me, as many of you seem to prefer, or Twitter or Facebook) a question or two you’d like to ask the author.
I’m going to leave question submissions open until they dry up. Then I will choose a handful (probably around 3) questions to add to my interview. I’ll give you credit for your question when I post the interview.
Having released the wildly popular (and very entertaining/enlightening) book, The Lives of Tao (Tao #1), Wesley Chu is now getting ready to release The Deaths of Tao (Tao #2). Below I have his brief biography. For more, check out his website.
About the Author
Wesley Chu’s dreams as an NFL punter were quickly dashed when he learned at an early age that he was terrible at every sort of ball sport. Actually, he was bad at every single sport in the known universe that didn’t involve hitting someone or doing backflips. Thus, he did what all ex-gymnasts/kungfu masters did: go into Information Technology while moonlighting as an actor.
Since then, he has been following his new dream of writing books – Science Fiction/Fantasy books with lots of action and no round objects.
