message 1: by Duane (new)

Duane L. Martin (unseenthings) | 52 comments A while back Douglas Schwartz put out an offer for people to fill in a set bunch of interview questions, which he would then post on his blog. I did it, and he posted mine, so I returned the favor. I set up a form on my official site with interview questions for my fellow authors to fill out, and then once I receive the submissions, I'll post the interviews in the guest author interviews section of the site.

My Unseen Things series is a contemporary fantasy / sci-fi hybrid series of novels, so authors that fall into the sci-fi or fantasy genres in particular might be interested in doing this.

If you'd like to fill out the interview questions and have your interview posted, go to my official site at http://www.duanelmartin.com and click on "Other Authors" in the top menu and then "Author Interview Form" to fill out and submit your answers. I'll get them posted as quickly as time allows.

Barbara Tarn (barbaragtarn) | 1185 comments Since I'm not as tech-savvy as you and Doug, I can only send my questions by mail... so if anyone is interested, PM me with your email, and I'll send you my questions!
Now going to fill Duane's form... :)

Duane L. Martin (unseenthings) | 52 comments Cool Barbara. I'm sitting here right now, so I'll get your interview posted when it comes in. :)

Duane L. Martin (unseenthings) | 52 comments Stan Morris your interview is posted here: http://www.duanelmartin.com/?page_id=479

And Barbara your interview is posted here: http://www.duanelmartin.com/?page_id=487

Sorry I have to let you know here instead of e-mailing you the links, but the form sends the mail to me from me, so I don't get the sender's e-mails. I did get your interview questions though Barbara and will be answering them shortly. :)

A.L. Butcher (alb2012) | 998 comments I'm interested in both sites. I'll try and fill in the form when I get home.


message 6: by Duane (new)

Duane L. Martin (unseenthings) | 52 comments Cool! I'll get it posted when it comes in and post the link to it here after it's done.


message 7: by Barbara (new)

Barbara Tarn (barbaragtarn) | 1185 comments Thanks, Duane! Sharing the page tomorrow and you're scheduled on mine for May 11!
May is now full, so others interested will have to see their interviews in June... PM me your email to get them (like I said, I'm not tech-savvy like the guys above! ;p AL, already got you from last year, so you need not apply, unless I change the questions! :D)

Duane L. Martin (unseenthings) | 52 comments Awesome, thanks so much Barbara. :)

message 13: by Stan (new)

Stan Morris (morriss003) Duane, this was a very clever way to do this. I Google Plused and Tweeted the link.


message 14: by Duane (new)

Duane L. Martin (unseenthings) | 52 comments Yeah, well I'm here all day, so whenever an interview comes in it doesn't take me long to put it up there.

And thanks Stan! If you guys know any other fantasy or sci-fi types that would like to do it, send 'em on over. :)

Like an idiot I forgot to put an e-mail section on the page for people to put their e-mail address so I could notify them when the interviews had been posted. That has now been rectified.
