I am interested in what makes readers tick and how they choose what to read, etc. The interview will be posted on my blog http://margaretofthenorth.wordpress.com and if you choose to, also on my Goodreads blog. If you would like to be interviewed, please reply to this thread. I will be sure to contact you back.

Hello PS! Great! But, clarify please. Would you like me to interview you as a reader or as an author? I do both.

Interesting idea. I'll explore this possibility. Any suggestions?
The interviews do get into some depth, which is my objective. I actually tailor the interview based on answers to a first general question.

Hi Margaret

Happy to be interviewed as a reader or a writer - whatever makes the best content for your audience. Perhaps I can be interviewed as both, how reading feeds writing and refocuses my reading choices, thus making me a more discerning reader.

The important thing is giving your followers what they want - I am therefore at your disposal.

Kind regards

PS Mokha

Shall we see what develops? You can email me at eholchair at gmail.com. Tell me a bit more about you and give me a link to your website if you have one.

Shawn Mcnamara (Encourageman) | 31 comments I am interested. Please private message me your requirements.


message 16: by Steve (new)

Steve (sefccw) | 37 comments I think this is a great concept. Count me in.

My blog at http://sefccw.wordpress.com/ should give you some idea of what I usually read.


message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

I do eventually get back to everyone. Still recovering from the frenzy of the last two months. Please feel free to email me at gmail.com (eholychair). You'll get my attention quicker that way. I will warn you, though, that my process is relatively slow. I don't use canned interview questions and I conduct the interview through a series of emails.


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

I have posted the second reader interview.
On my book website: Eli Adelholm: Creating her World
Also on Goodreads:

Couldn't find your email address . If you're still interested send me an email at eholychair at gmail.com. There are several people ahead of you.

L.P. Johnson (lpj68) | 5 comments @ E. Funny, thought it was showing on the page - have to fix that. Meanwhile though I'll message you from gmail. Thanks again - I don't mind the wait.

message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

I sent some interview questions to a few of you who expressed interest in being interviewed and have not received any response. Check your spam mail, just in case. It's been about a week or two. If you decide not to follow up on the interview, I would appreciate being told about it.

I must have missed it, can you resend?
I am working on my first eBook, which will be available sometime later this month. It will be a very short collection of some of my first attempts at creative writing.

I sent an email to start an interview sometime in mid-January. Did you receive it? Email me, please, to tell me you're no longer interested.
