Doing interviews is just part of the job when you’re an author. I’ve done lots of magazine and blog interviews… and occasionally, I get a radio or television interview. Radio and television can be a lot of fun, especially when you get along well with the interviewer. I did a couple earlier this year, so I thought I’d tell you about them.
In October I attended the Armageddon Pop Culture Expo as a minor guest. Basically, this meant I sat at a table in the exhibition area signing the occasional book. It was a lot of fun and I had author Ian Irvine at the table next to me. While there, I was interviewed by the wonderful people from Level 3, a gaming series shown on Channel 31 in Melbourne and also posted on the Web. In case you’re interested, I’m at the 13:30min mark in Episode 240.
More recently, I appeared on Published Or Not, a bookish radio show on 3CR. The show it put together by Jan Goldsmith. She has got to be one of the best interviewers around. She read Gamers’ Challenge prior to the interview and came up with some great questions and insightful comments. The interview was a pure joy. You can download a podcast here.
