Author Interview Questions – Be Prepared to Answer

Even though you’ve prepared, there may be questions an interviewer asks that you hadn’t considered. Here are 10 questions you want to be prepared to answer:

  1. What inspired you to write this book?
  2. What can you tell us about your book?
  3. What did you learn writing this book?
  4. What surprised you the most about writing your book?
  5. What does the title, or subtitle, of your book mean?
  6. What are the two main take-aways from your book you want people to know?
  7. What do you hope to accomplish with your book?
  8. What advice would you give to aspiring writers?
  9. Where can we buy your book?
  10. What else do you plan to write?

Practice your answers to these questions so you sound natural when you reply.
