Yesterday we sent out a newsletter that had a list of the author interviews on our site. There is apparently some confusion about the author interviews vs the book posts.
Here is the list of authors that have submitted *interviews*
Yes it is a very long page! Use Ctrl F (PC) or Cmnd F (Mac) and search the page for your interview.
If you are not on that list and remember submitting *something* to BookGoodies that included some interview type questions, that was your “Tell Us About Your Book” post. You can find those by typing your name in the search box at the top of any page. Book posts have the title of the book, followed by your name, as the title.
Author Interviews have “Interview with Author – Your Name” as the post title. There are different, more general, questions on the author interview than there are on the Book posts. This is important for authors to realize, because people will find your posts in different searches.
We designed both the book posts and author interviews to have information that is useful to readers, helpful to other authors and will help your posts on our site be more informational and not
clones of what you have posted in other places. We want our site to be unique and to get you and your books discovered.
Author Interview posts also have special coding which pulls in your other posts on our site (as long as you tagged your posts with your name) including book posts, guest posts, excerpts, short stories, or anything else you have posted on our site. They also pull in information from your GoodReads profile *if* you have filled out your GoodReads profile link – not a book link – this is an important distinction since many others have included a book link and not their actual GoodReads Profile link.
To complete an Author Interview please go to this page and fill one out:
Please check the link above though first! Removing duplicates can be a tedious process and you should only have *1* author interview page. You can have numerous other posts, but only *1* author interview. Also if you submitted on in the past couple of weeks, it takes up to 3 weeks for an interview to show up on our site.
If you have an interview and need to make corrections, we need to do those manually. Please leave a comment on your interview with the corrections. If there are major corrections, submit a new interview with a link to your existing interview and ask us to replace your interview.
Hopefully this clears up any confusion and helps you understand the differences in some of our post types. To see all of the different kinds of posts you can submit to BookGoodies, please click on this link.
