Your Interview Environment

Another in a series of interview tips for authors.

Before you get on the phone for your interview, check your environment, your surroundings. You don’t want anything to distract you.

  • Close windows and doors.
  • Mute all your electronic devices.
  • Turn off fans, heaters, air conditioners.
  • Let anyone nearby know you’re about to go behind closed doors and can’t be interrupted.
  • Put a sign on your door: Keep Out!
