Smashwords Lets Self-Published Authors Interview Themselves

Self-publishing platform Smashwords is now featuring an author interview series called  Smashwords Interviews. The series lets authors interview themselves about their book and their writing process. Here is more about the new feature from the Smashwords blog:

Your interview will be published on the Smashwords site, and is cross linked and discoverable from your author profile page, each of your book pages, and the Smashwords home page.  At the end of each interview is a clickable listing of the author’s books.  The interview includes social sharing features so your fans can help spread your interview on their favorite social media channels.

AppNewser has more about how it works:

The tool lets authors interview themselves through a guided format. The tool prompts authors to answer a series of questions about themselves and their work. they can even create their own custom questions. Once they have edited the copy, they can hit publish. The interviews will be published on the Smashwords site, and readers can access them on author profile pages, book pages, as well as the Smashwords home page.”
