There are some interesting author interviews lined up for later this summer, but in the meantime, I thought I'd point you to a few of the best I've had the privilege to feature here over the past year.
Vicki Forman, author of the Bakeless Prize-winning memoir, This Lovely Life, gave this lengthy primer on everything she did, should have done, and what all first-time authors should do, to help market, promote and publicize their books.
In Leslea Newman's interview, the poet, children's book author, and novelist discusses crossing genres, thinking big, discipline and listening to good advice.
Sue William Silverman, a memoirist and MFA faculty, and the author of the book Fearless Confessions: A Writer's Guide to Memoir, gave me this long interview about the craft of memoir writing.
These interviews are on the long side, but in my opinion, all three interview subjects – who were so generous with their answers – have so much excellent advice to share, the interviews are all well worth the time to read. Enjoy.
