Author Interview du Jour

If you have a jones for author interviews -- you want to know what’s new and you want it now -- check out the Campaign for the American Reader’s Author Interviews blog.

While Author Interviews doesn’t actually do them, it does collect the data on interviewees: to the tune of one per day. As a result, you end up with a rather good kaleidoscope of what’s hot right now. For instance, over the last week, Author Interviews reported on interviews -- and other details -- with Lisa Shearin (Armed and Magical); Erin Hogan (Spiral Jetta: A Road Trip through the Land Art of the American West); Christina Meldrum (Madapple); Walter Nugent (Habits of Empire: A History of American Expansion); Tana French (In the Woods); Andrew D. Blechman (Leisureville: Adventures in America’s Retirement Utopias); Brent Ghelfi (Volk’s Shadow) and Faye Flam (The Score: How The Quest For Sex Has Shaped The Modern Man).

And if you do check out Author Interviews, you’ll find links to the other blogs in the Campaign for the American Reader network, including The Page 69 Test; My Book, The Movie; The Page 99 Test; Writers Read; Lit Lists; HEPPAS Books and New Books. I could tell you what they all are, but, in the first place, some of the titles are self-explanatory. And in the second, I wouldn’t want to detract from all the fun you’re have exploring.
