Faces of Publishing Exclusive Interview Lineup on BookBanter

Faces of Publishing

On February 1st I debuted the first of my new interview series, Faces of Publishing, where I go beyond the book and the author, and take a look into the world of publishing and the people who made that book happen.  Throughout 2012 I’ll be putting up a new interview on the first of every month with a publicist, editor, agent, ebook specialist, marketing manager, or some crucial person involved in publishing.  My first interview was with Justin Golenbock, a senior publicist for Tor and Forge Books.

[I will still be doing occasional interviews with authors throughout the year, most likely on the 15th of the month.  Be sure to check back often on the website, or subscribe to this blog.]

Below is a listing of the interviews I’ve got lined up so far that you can enjoy reading throughout the year.  They are subject to change and I’m adding more all the time and hope to keep this going for a long time.

  • April 1st: Danielle Bartlett, PUBLICIST for HarperCollins.
  • May 1st: Michelle Brower, AGENT for Folio Literary Management.
  • June 1st: Brady McReynolds, PUBLICIST for Berkeley/NAL.
  • July 1st: Paula Guran, EDITOR for Prime Books.
  • August 1st: Kevin Smith, EDITOR.
  • September 1st: Lynn Pasquale, DIRECTOR OF DIGITAL PUBLISHING for Prometheus Books.
  • October 1st: Jaime Levine, EXECUTIVE EDITOR for Grand Central Publishing.

Upcoming Interviews on BookBanter

Here’s a listing of upcoming interviews on BookBanter for the next couple of months leading up to December.

[Updated 09/28: I realized there was a noticeable lacking of female authors being interviewed, and since I had one more spot open for the year, I set-up an interview with Juliet Eilperin, who wrote Demon Fish, which is schedule to go up November 1st]

Upcoming Interviews on BookBanter: Mira Grant & James Rollins

While July 2011 looks to be a very big release month with Jim Butcher’s pushed-back and awaited (after the cliffhanger in Changes) Ghost Story and George R. R. Martin’s very very very long-awaited A Dance With Dragons, June also has a couple of big releases . . .

Mira Grant

June 1st

Coming June 1st will be the second interview between BookBanter and Mira Grant, tying in with the release of the thrilling sequel to the bestselling Feed, with Deadline.  You can read my previous interview with Mira Grant here, along with my review for Feed, which continues to be the no. 1 most popular book review on BookBanter.

And to commemorate this special interview, I’ll be doing a new BookBanter Boon: I’ll be giving away a copy of Deadline!  My hopeful plan is to have Mira Grant sign it also.  The giveaway will begin on June 1st when the interview goes up and continue through June 14th at 11:59PM, and the following day a winner will be randomly drawn.  To buy Feed or preorder Deadline just click on the covers below.
