Another Quick Note Taking Post, This Time Re: Author Interviews/Ficlet Spotlights

Authors! I require assistance!

Here are people to whom I know I've said I'd send interview questions to for Author Interviews, for the March/April/May time frame. These people will be receiving e-mailed questions shortly, on account I'll be on tour through part of April/May and will want these in the hopper, ready to go:

Alma Alexander
Justine Larbalestier
Justina Robson
Cassandra Clare
Carrie Vaughn
Jennifer Ouliette
Sandra McDonald
Jim C. Hines
Elizabeth Bear
Jay Lake

If you are an author whom I have said I would interview during this time frame but do not see you name on this list, please contact me and say "Hey, moron, you said you'd interview me!" I would not want to not interview you.

Secondly, as the Author Interviews are no longer going to be tied into a specific day, I can probably get a couple more in there. So if you've got a book coming out, particularly in May, ping me and let's see what we can do. I seem to be running low on guy authors right about now. Here's how to do this.

Thirdly, remember that even if you don't have a book coming out, but are a published author, I can still promote the heck out of you if you want to write three ficlets for the Ficlets site. Here are those details again. A couple of you have pinged me for this; I'm going to ping you back. But I could use more.

Can we make suggestions of authors we'd like you to interview?

John Scalzi | March 25, 2007 09:34 PM

It's not going to be very useful, actually. I usually hear from authors themselves (or their publicists/publishers), and I don't have too much problem filling slots. So it might be more useful to tell the author about me.

John, your link to "Here's How To Do This" is going to the Ficlets page.

John Scalzi | March 26, 2007 08:06 AM

No, two separate links, separated by a period.

Cassie | March 26, 2007 08:16 AM

Ah, forgive me, I didn't scroll down far enough.

Ninja Kitten | March 26, 2007 11:32 AM

Cassandra Claire.... Isn't she that Harry potter fan fic writer?

John Scalzi | March 26, 2007 11:41 AM

She's the author of the upcoming novel City of Bones.

Cassie | March 26, 2007 11:46 AM

One and the same.

Ninja Kitten | March 26, 2007 12:07 PM

Oh, wow. After that whole plagiarism deal, this should be pretty interesting.

John Scalzi | March 26, 2007 12:25 PM

Not really.

I also hereby declare that we not talk about Ms. Clare's adventures in fanfic in this thread, because I don't wanna, and it's my site, so there.

Ninja Kitten | March 26, 2007 12:54 PM

I wasn't thinking about you, really. It's just that wherever her name comes up, controversy follows. Out of respect for you, I'll just leave it at that.

Coz | March 28, 2007 08:37 PM

Hmmm... I'm not currently published (it's been ten years, and it wasn't a novel), but I've contributed more than three ficlets already - can I bank these against the day when I finally finish the novel? :)
