Interview the Pros – Update

Group Reading: Interview the Pros

As many of you already know, I’m in the process of getting a book published called Interview the Pros: What does it take to create a Successful Blog? which consists of 40 interviews with many prominent bloggers and will be available on Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, and so on. The good news is that I’ve just finished sending the final review/edit of the book to my publisher earlier this week. I’m now in the process of working with them on the book’s cover copy (the wording on the cover, back, inserts). We’re also in the process of working through the illustrations for the cover, and what have you. As far as I understand, this next step could take up to 5 weeks.

The book’s already been assigned it own ISBN, which is pretty cool! It will be available in both hard cover and soft cover, In addition to this I’m in the process of building up a website for the book which should be available for its release. I’d share the link but it’s not yet ready.

All in all things are progressing. It’s not as fast as I’m used to in the blogging and technical world, but I’ve been informed that for a traditionally published book is pretty fast, which is good news.

I’ll keep you posted with updates as they become available.

For those of you who are new to this blog (the readership is growing quite rapidly), the list of people interviewed for the book are:

    Hey Steph,

    How did you manage to interview yourself? 😉

    Hi Bob,

    The key to the book is that I asked everyone the same questions. The goal of the book is twofold. First and foremost is to learn from the pros, that’s an obvious goal. Secondly it was to see how the pros were similar and differed in their approaches to blogging. And I have to admit this is what really makes the book great!

    What you’ll notice when you read it is that some bloggers have completely different views on some topics and yet they all succeeded. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of similarities, but the breath of difference in opinion and approaches some of them had about blogging is very impressive. It especially shows that there’s no one true and only way of blogging.

    Which, to answer your question in a really long-winded way, is why I was able to interview myself. I simply asked myself the same interview questions that I asked everyone else 🙂
