I would like an expanded author page added to inside book jackets. In addition to the usual, I would like the following:
How long did it take, from start to finish, to complete this novel/memoir/true crime/whatever? Plus, a breakdown from first draft to revisions. (me: first draft one year exactly. Revisions going on three years)
How many hours a day did you devote to its completion? (me: time is becoming extinct for me. I set it aside for now)
Are you a pantser or a plotter? (me: pantser)
If this is your first published novel, how did you break in? (me: [will be] by stalking an agent, breaking into their car and waiting for them to get off work, then pitching my book. If they take a subway, then I’ll hijack the public address system and pitch that way. If they take a cab, I’ll be the driver. If they walk …)
If you queried an agent, please share your winning query with us. Links to your website are okay. (me: perhaps I should ditch stalking and try the dreaded query. Not)
Do you have burning questions you’d want addressed on an author page? Plus, what are your own answers to my questions?
