Recently at The IndieView
The most recent interviews at The IndieView starting with a refresher on the different kinds of interviews.
This is an interview with a standard set of open ended questions. While they focus on a specific book, they also delve into the author's history as a writer and the path they took in becoming an indie author.
This is a shorter interview format for authors who have already done an IndieView which focuses just on their most recent book.
These are interviews with reviewers who have their own review blog that delve into their approach to reviewing. A great way to find other book blogs you might like to follow. (For authors, there is also an extensive database of indie friendly review sites you might like to check out.)
By invitation only, these are quirky, often irreverent interviews done by longtime Books and Pals follower, Allirea.
(Authors and reviewers interested in doing an IndieView should visit this page for details.)
IndieView with Katie St. Claire, author of Second Hand Stops
It’s incredibly important for authors to read. Not only does reading nourish the imagination and creativity, but also we get to see the writing styles of different authors. I watch how they develop their own plots and characters.
Reviewer IndieView with Heena Rathore P. of The Reading Bud
Reading enables a person to visit a thousand places without leaving the comfort of home, live a thousand lives without missing out on the real one and relieves and relaxes one’s mind and soul completely.
IndieView with Smoky Zeidel, author of The Storyteller’s Bracelet
My book deals with a horrifying time in American history, a time most people know little about because they don’t teach it in history classes in school. Yet, it is a story of hope in the face of adversity. My target audience is readers who don’t mind squirming a bit while they read, who want to learn about the injustices our government forced on native peoples.
IndieView with P. Wish, author of My Life in 3 Colours
Though it is a picture book, I wrote it with young adults in mind. Since the book focuses on appreciating your unique personality, I think it would make a good read for anyone.
BookView with Marie Lavender, author of Second Nature
I always wanted to write about vampires, and fate kind of handed it to me when I resurrected a story scene from one of my writing archives.
IndieView with Bruce Fottler, author of The Initiative: In Harm’s Way
The book was started in the mid-1990’s, well before I had aspirations of being published. I wrote the first few chapters and soon stopped. My marriage, career, children, and life in general drove this (and other stories) into hard-drive limbo.
IndieView with William V.M. McAllister III, author of Malee: A Tear in the Ocean
To make a scene, description, emotion came alive in a sentence, or even just a phrase, is writing in its highest art form. I also love to read writers who delve deeply into the human condition that is part of all of us.
IndieView with John L. DeBoer, author of Skeleton Run
I’m a political junkie, and the recent Supreme Court decisions allowing almost unlimited money to finance campaigns got the idea going for me.
IndieView with Margarita Felices, author of Ordinary Wins
Ordinary Wins is a story about us. The normal, ordinary woman in the street with wishes and dreams who is now slightly older and perhaps a little heavier.
Indieview with Pam Ferderbar, author of Feng Shui and Charlotte Nightingale
I just love Charlotte. Even when she’s not feeling good about herself, there is something charming and strong under the surface. She’s the kind of person I’d have as a friend.
IndieView with Justin Sloan, author of Back by Sunrise
The idea came to me when my friend was deploying with the Marines to Iraq, and I couldn’t imagine the pain his daughter would feel if he never returned.
IndieView with M. Maitland Deland, M.D., author of Nashville Mercy
As a doctor, I have seen a lot of good in the medical world, but I have also seen my fair share of the “bad.” There are doctors out there (not many, thank goodness!), that do have corrupt practices, or that cheat their patients. It’s really sad, and even though it doesn’t happen everyday, it happens more than it should.
