An excerpt from today’s interview:
“When I talk as a publisher about recruiting writers, a lot of people assume I’m looking for the best writers with the best stories. That’s not true at all, what I’m looking for first are people with the right attitude. You can be the best writer in the world, but if you’re a total jackass to your fans the kind of interaction the internet makes possible will only be a detriment to your work.“
Yep, you guessed it. Finally, finally, I’ve managed to get organized and start interviewing again!
To be fair, the delay wasn’t totally my fault, as I really wanted my first interview of the year to coincide with the first issue of Ergofiction.
Why, you may ask? Because Chief Editor of the magazine Jan Oda has convinced me to dedicate even more of the time I don’t have into helping her out over there.
By now we’re already halfway through Issue 1, a highlight covering the social aspects of webfiction. Monday we had an article on tips of how to be a good webfiction fan, and coming tomorrow is a Twitter highlight.
Today, however, is interview day!
The guest is one that’s been on the Caf before, Isa K, but this time, instead of asking about her serial Split-Self, I’ve pestered her about creating fan communities, and the importance of author-reader interaction. Go read the interview!
(You can see Issue 1’s editorial, which includes an introduction of yours truly plus this week’s articles outlined, over here.)
And don’t forget: from now on head over to Ergofiction to get your weekly fix of interviews!
