Okay readers. Its your turn to give authors a piece of your mind

As you can tell this site is geared toward literary professionals and aspiring authors.

I would like to interview a few brave avid readers about what they like to read, why, what things authors do that annoy them, what they want to see from authors in the future, etc.

If you or someone you know is interested in helping authors make better books send me an email at Guidedhope(at)gmail(dot)com and I will send them the interview questions.

NOTE ADDED JUNE 20th

I'm also looking to interview published authors (agented, self published, small press, etc. too) to find out what you wrote and what the pathway to publishing was like for you.

  1. Have your joined Good Reads? Or Library Thing? You'll find a lot of book reviewers there who love to read and who might like to be interviewed.

  14. I really, really enjoyed this. The humor works brilliantly, and the animation is much better than I had imagined. The way you have “blended” (hehe) it all together makes this look like a solid, whole product, as good as any Pixar short. Probably better. But then again: That’s my opinion.

  15. Thanks so much for the Creative Blog Award, Dierdra. I don't follow your blog (yet), but it looks really nice.

    I sent you an email just now. I'm pretty interested in the interview.

    Just the fact that you commented on my blog made my day. ^_^

  16. Also, if you're looking for published authors to interview, I would suggest James Dashner, author of the "13th Reality" series and "Maze Runner" trilogy. He's one of my favorite authors, and he has an awesome blog as well. ^_~
