Today we're going to do something a little different.
What: We want to interview you!
Where: We'll post our questions below, and you can answer in the comments section.
When: We'll be watching today's post April 6 through April 12th, so you can answer the questions anytime over the next week! (You can also answer more than once, if you feel like it.)
Bonus: You can win a book just by commenting! We're going to do a drawing from among commenters for Steve Weber's fantastic marketing book, Plug Your Book! Online Book Marketing for Authors. (Even better, Steve's going to join us on April 23rd for an interview and even more book giveaways!)
Ok, let's get started!
Question 1: What do you like to write? What do you like to read? Tell us a little bit about yourself!
A few months ago, we asked for suggestions for future posts. We'd like to take this opportunity to do that again.
Question 2: What do you want to see the QueryTracker Bloggers write about? What have we covered that you'd like to see us talk more about? What areas haven't we covered that you want us to address?
Question 3: If you could interview anybody in publishing, whether that be an author, an agent, or someone else, who would that be? Why? (Yes, we're asking you to name names here.)
QueryTracker.net Blog is going to start interviewing the kinds of professionals we asked about in the question above, so we want to know...
a. What questions would you like us to ask the fiction-representing agents we interview?
b. What questions would you like us to ask the nonfiction-representing agents we interview?
a. What questions would you like us to ask the fiction writers we interview? (Please feel free to ask genre-specific questions, or even to add questions for particular writers. You never know, we might be planning to talk with them!)
b. What questions would you like us to ask the nonfiction writers we interview? (Think about what kinds of nonfiction writers you'd like us to talk to. For example, Steve Weber is going to talk about marketing. But what other kind of nonfiction authors would you like us to interview? People who teach you to put together proposals? People who write how-to books? And so on. What would you ask them?)
Question 6: What haven't we asked you that you wish we had? Answer that question, too!
Thanks in advance, everyone! We're looking forward to reading your answers!
