As you know, I’m doing a book signing at BookSmart in Morgan Hill in May. Part of a book signing is answering questions. Believe it or not, readers often want to do more than just read your book. They want to know about the process of writing. That’s sometimes why they come to a book signing. They may even be budding writers. Here are some typical questions you might have to field if you’re ever doing a book signing.

  1. Tell me about your book. How did you come up with that (story, angle, idea)?
    2. How did you get interested in writing this particular genre (historical novels, mysteries, sci-fi, children’s books, etc.)?
    3. What kind of research did you do for this book?
    4. What’s a typical working day like for you? When and where do you write? Do you set a daily writing goal?
    5. What is the hardest part of writing for you?
    6. What’s the best thing about being an author?
    7. What are you working on now?
    8. What advice would you give aspiring writers?
    9. Do you have any favorite authors or favorite books?
    10. What question have you always wanted to be asked in an interview? How would you answer that question?
    11. If you were writing a book about your life, what would the title be?

Stink Bomb is a great read for ages 7-10 year olds.
