INTERVIEWS

FELLOW AUTHORS INTERVIEWS
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I am always enjoying learning something more about self-publishing authors like me. During the process of creating the English version of “The white prisoner: Galabin Boevski’s secret story” I read a lot about all the tricks to make a good final product. Most of the info I gathered from author’s blogs. So I think there is always sense to browse and check out my colleagues personal web spaces.

This is why I started the interview hosting of fellow authors. Initially, it was very tough to arrange Q&A with some popular authors. I don’t know why, but the PR-s at the publishing houses do not like too much to book interviews for guys like me with modest indie platform for presenting the latest in the book’s world. There are some exceptions and I am very grateful to those publicists, who knows that nicely prepared interview with good SEO may bring on board a lot of readers.

Now with 300 plus interviews with many bestselling authors among them, Land of Books became well visited place by readers. Thanks a lot to every writer who participated and thanks to all the followers and readers who appreciated Land of Books.
