A few days ago, I was contacted by Murray Newlands, the founder of Affiliate Heat and ebook author, to do an interview. Lo and behold, it appeared today on his site, MurrayNewlands.com. Below is a portion of the interview:
An interview with Rebeca Schiller of Alvah’s Books blog
Tell me about your Blog?
Alvah’s Books is a book review site. It’s named after my favorite author Alvah Bessie. Alvah was a veteran of the Abraham Lincoln Brigades who fought in the Spanish Civil War, he was a novelist, the literary and drama critic of The New Masses, screenwriter, and one of the Hollywood Ten. For Alvah’s Books, I review literary fiction and non-fiction. I also include essays, author interviews and publishing news.
What was your first blog?
My first blog was A Novel Approach. It was supposed to be a blog chronicling the trials and tribulations of writing my novel. It was discontinued because it turned more into a lament about my job. It morphed into Exiled at the Beach: A Year’s Chronicle in Creativity.
What is the biggest tip you would give to a newbie blogger?
Have a plan. Think of your blog as a magazine. Think of what you want to publish daily and make it interesting.
