Interview Tips for Nonfiction Authors

Each month this year one blog post will include a tip or two for nonfiction authors who do online interviews.

Your interview may be as a guest on a podcast, webinar, or teleseminar. Interviews help build your author business, so you want to be at your best.

First, be sure you have the correct date and time on your calendar. Is your interviewer on the East coast and you’re on the West coast? Their 9am is your 6am! Make sure you get it right by using TimeandDate.com.

Set aside enough time for the interview. It may only be a 30-minute interview. But the interviewer may ask you to be on the line 5-10 minutes before and/or after the interview to prep and wrap up.
