Let's Get This Conversation Going!

A Call For Interviews!

 I am tired of only hearing my side of the story on here.
 (Well, mostly only. I did interview Sarah Holman, which was a blast...)
 And the comments you folks leave are terrific! But I want to hear more form you.

 I'm putting out a call for writer interviews!
 Or reader interviews!
 (That would be a ton of fun! Let's do that! If you are a reader, but not a writer, drop me a line! And we can set up an interview and get the "real deal" of what goes on in a reader's head!)

 No matter what genre you read, you've got a perspective. Let's hear it!
 We can ALL learn from each other, no matter what genre we prefer to specialize in. I always say that a good book is a good book, regardless of "category".

 We can talk about your favorite story lines, your worst pet peeves, the Thing-You-Can't-Stand-Above-Anything-Else, the moment that melted you heart, fired your emotions, made you so mad you couldn't see straight.
 What is your favorite trait in a character, and why do you love them; what most makes you hate the villain?
 What was your favorite "switch" that caught you completely off guard, but you loved the result!
 What small things do you especially like to see included?

 So contact me! I want to know what YOU'RE thinking.

 Also, if you're a writer, we can talk about these things too. ;-) Or we can talk about your writing, or your writing troubles... (Just contact me, and we'll talk! ;-) )

 Seriously, I'm looking at YOU.

This is such a fun idea - interviewing readers too. What a great way for writers to gain insights into a non-writer's thought processes! I do love your blog. You always offer such unique and fresh ideas. And, as a writer, if you had a lull in your activity, I'd be more than happy to take you up on the interview offer. ; P
As a side note: October 16th is Dictionary Day, and I'm giving away a copy of Barbara Ann Kipfer's Flip Dictionary over at my blog, the Writer's Lair. Anyone who's interested is totally welcome to enter! enterthewriterslair.blogspot.com

What a great idea! I'll look forward to seeing these reader interviews. I'm just getting started in the blogging world, and interviews sound like so much fun. Like Mary Ruth, I'd be happy to take you up on the offer. You could even ask me reader questions if you wanted a reader's perspective, or writing questions if you wanted that perspective. I guess it could work that way. (As a side note, I don't get tired of hearing your side of the story. : ) )

Awww! That's such a sweet side note, Kelsey! :-) (It makes me so happy to have you say that! <3 ;-) )
And yes! You're on! We'll have to get your email address and connect that way.
(By the way, I think I should put a address in there so everyone interested can email me! )

And Mary Ruth! I have already sent you an email, I'm happy to say that I was able to find it on your blog!
We'll get this conversation started! :-)
