Questions, questions

I'm going to be doing a interview of a very, talented author next month and I'm trying to think of some questions. So, I thought I would ask you what you would ask an author. I've got a few in mind, but I want to see what you would ask. Who is this person? Elliot Grace. His book South of Charm was just released so put your thinking caps on and let me know. Also, go check out his blog. He is an amazing writer.

Have a great day!

  1. I hate doing interviews because I can never think of super cool questions that will lead to entertaining answers. Entertaining answers will engage the reader to keep reading, and leave her wanting to buy the author's book by the time the interview is over.

    Good luck with getting awesome questions. :D

  2. I would help Christine, but I'm going to be interviewing him too and I haven't thought of mine yet :-)

  3. Honestly, I like the normal questions like "What does your typical day look like?" or "When do you write?" I like to hear how they successfully completed their books.

  4. What did you have for breakfast? Sorry, just kidding. How about asking if they adopt a particular persona when they write?

  5. Hmm, I've got nothin' right now, but if I think of something, I'll come back!

  6. I enjoy reading about an author's writing journey, so questions geared towards that perhaps.

  7. Hm, I'm horrible at thinking up questions. I have a couple of awards for you on my blog, though! :)

  8. I am really bad at asking questions for interviews. My brain draws a great big blank. But I would be interested to know where the idea for his book came from. You probably have already thought of that. Sorry--blank brain.

  9. I'm a huge fan of when writers share their "journey to publication" stories. It fascinates me and I find it so interesting how different every writer's path is.

  10. Hmm, how about some of these. How long did it take you to write your book? What obstacles did you face when writing? How did you come about finding an agent? What was that process like? What's your favourite thing about being a writer? What's your least favourite thing?
