When I made the decision to release all my digital guides for free, I felt like I was giving up. Instead it’s been the best thing I could have done for myself. You guys have been downloading lots of copies, and there’s nothing more motivating than to know people are reading what I’m writing!
That’s probably why I wrote my fourth guide, Effective interview techniques, in record time. I started outlining it last Monday, and put the finishing touches on the formatting by Thursday afternoon.
The end result is my most hands-on guide yet. You’ll learn:
How to generate interview questions for any occasion, going WAY beyond the basic Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How.
How to reach out to VIPs and faceless corporations for an interview (without embarrassing yourself) by using my foolproof email script.
The pros and cons of recording an interview with paper-and-pen, audio taping, and filming; plus what I personally would do.
How to figure out when the interview is over. (Hint: it’s not always when you’ve finished asking your prepared questions!)
How being a geek presents new challenges and advantages to interviewing.
And a lot more, all from the perspective of one fandom writer to another.
So what are you waiting for? Head on over the the Bookstore and grab your download.
