Now that you have your book, artwork, etc. in the limelight, how do you handle the press that comes along with it? What will make you a good interviewee so that you can land even more press?
Email interviews are the easiest. Most of the time, a list of questions will be emailed to you and you will have a certain amount of time to answer the questions. First read through the questions, think about them. Make you sure take to time to read each part of the question and answer them honestly and completely as possible. Then go back and re-read the questions and your responses to make sure that nothing is missed and that you have said everything that you want to say.
For radio and TV, talk to the hosts to find out what types of questions that may be asked of you. Make a list of your answers to have on hand for radio and memorized for your TV interviews.
Know your audience. Make sure your responses are age appropriate or audience specific.
In TV interviews, be mindful of your appearance and mannerisms. Practice interviewing in front of the mirror or with someone you trust.
These are just a few tips to help you on your way to success.

What an exciting week I've had. I've barely had time to breathe. I'm proud to announce that I am working with Blackwyrm on publishing the second edition of Afterthoughts in April and the sequel, Left in the Dark, in October. We are also working on a new Trilogy to be released in 2010. This is very exciting for me and I look forward to working with Blackwyrm. This means that the first edition of Afterthoughts will be going away soon. Better grab a copy while you can!
I also have a book trailer for Afterthoughts in the works. From the conversation I've had with Filmatix Films, it sounds like it is going to be incredible! Look for it to come out soon.
And last but not least, I have to finish up on the screenplay for Afterthoughts. I have three different avenues looking at it for the big screen. Keep your fingers crossed for me and I hope of have something more to announce soon!
I'm very excited to announce that I will be a guest on "WE TALK BACK" on December 6th at 11:00 AM Central 12:00 PM Eastern. You can listen live at talk540.com and clicking on the Listen Live button. It will also be Podcast for the following week. "WE TALK BACK" is a radio talk show in Louisiana that is hosted by Wiley Ezell. Thanks Wiley!
