September Author Interview Answer #1: What is the goal in your writing career? | International Book Promotion. I was recently asked to be interviewed by International Book Promotion while they were looking for memoir writers for the genre of the month. Not only was I stoked to be invited for the interview, but I was asked if I knew any other memoir writers who may be interested in being interviewed at the same time. The promotion company likes to interview two or three authors of same genre and gives us all a series of same questions for readers, to get different perspectives from authors on same questions. Within the same hour I was asked if I could suggest another nonfiction author who may want to partake in the interview, I got tweeted by a fellow author and friend Adam Henig, asking me if I wanted to do an interview here on my page for an author friend of his who also writes nonfiction/memoir. I had told him that I was too busy to host an interview at that time but maybe she would like to partake in the interview I just agreed to do.
Well it worked out great for both of us and I was honored to be interviewed in the first place, but the added bonus of being in the same interview with fellow esteemed author, Linda Gray Sexton, was the icing on the cake for me. Linda is the author of many books, including her newly published book Bespotted. She is also the daughter of the late great Pulitzer Prize winning poet, Anne Sexton.
Linda and I were both given the same questions and they are being posted one question and answer at a time for a series of posts. The link above is the first part. Question one deals with glimpsing into the honesty of memoir writing. Enjoy!
