Yesterday I wrote a post that referenced an author interview. In thinking more about that post, I consider it a mistake that I didn’t put a link to that interview in the post. I thought about going back and putting it in there, but then I had a better idea.
I’ll make a new post with links to several of my favorite author interviews.
There’s lots of them out there. Some better than others. More bad ones than good ones. Either because they were too short, overproduced for TV with no depth, bad sound–whatever. But there are a lot of good ones.
So, if you’re a nerd like me, here are several interviews that I found insightful, by authors I respect tremendously. In an effort to save my fellow nerds the time it takes to sift through the not-so-good ones, here are some of (in my opinion) the best author interviews.
