Does Every “Interview” Count?

Self-promotion for a book often takes on the likeness of “interviews”.

Crafted promotional pieces with Q&A might be better called FauxViews :-)

Here’s the latest one with me: Jexbo FauxViews Alexander M Zoltai about Notes from An Alien

Do you find FauxViews interesting?

Do you think they “work”?

    Do I understand fauxviews to mean the author creates the interview and publishes it as an interview? It’s a new concept to me, but I think it could very well work. As always, an interesting post!

      Sure, Selena, an author could write the questions and answers for the “interview”–I’ve asked a couple writers to do that for “interviews” I’ve posted on this blog.

      I do think most of them are questions from the site or blog owner that the writer answers.

      Plus, in the post , I didn’t differentiate the difference between a FauxView and an Interview.

      Real interviews can be blog owner questions and author answers; but, a FauxView would be in a format that almost exclusively promoted a book–i.e., had nothing about the writer’s style, habits, etc………………
