I was recently interviewed by The Authors Show (Scottsdale, Arizona) about my book “Who Said I was up for Adoption?”
Their goals are clearly to establish themselves as “the” place to go in order to listen to authors talking about their book. This is apparently important for large book retailers and libraries. There is also a business interest as they have a selection of promotional packages to offer to every author who participates.
The business side is quite simple from my perspective. I just have to gauge how the interview is presented in its edited/trimmed format (to 15 minutes), and decide whether to invest in promoting it further. My biggest issue however is the interview itself. How did I “come over”? Did I gabble which, with my accent, can cause issues? Much as I tried to exercise total self-control, there is that element of the unknown, and I did not have an opportunity to preview it. Of course I must also acknowledge that each of us is our own worst critic!
