I’m really psyched to announce that my new book, Interview Fu: The Game Journo Guide To Conducting Killer Interviews, is OUT NOW (Print + Kindle)! I’ve been hard at work since the launch of UUDDLW last year to crack open my brain and pour out a decade’s worth of interviewing advice from my years as both a newspaper reporter and a freelance game journalist onto the page. Interview Fu distills all of my knowhow and experience on this important subject into useful tips and intriguing tales of troubleshooting. Even better, I also interviewed other notable writing pros from the game industry and a handful of game developers to get their take on what makes a great interview, how to better engage interviewees, and much more. This small but useful tome is exploding with a one-two punch of intel designed to take your journalism skills to the next level – whether you’re a freelancer, newsie, feature writer, author, or aspiring game journo ninja!
Buy the Print edition, get the Kindle edition for SUPER CHEAP!
Using the Kindle Matchbook program, which is awesome, anyone who buys a print copy of the book through Amazon ($9.99) can then go over to the book’s Kindle edition page at any time and download the ebook instantly for only $0.99! It’s perfect for folks who want that meatspace edition to stick on their shelf but are too impatient and want to read it immediately! You can also buy the Kindle edition on its own for $4.99.
Read the Kindle version on almost any device: Did you know that you can read the Kindle edition on just about any portable device (iOS, Android, Your phoneamajiggy) using the FREE Kindle Reader app! I read my Kindle books on my iPad using the app, which is awesome.
Please Help Spread the Word!
I’m only one dude (or am I?), so launching a book without the help of a big publisher or fancy expensive marketing campaign is certainly always a challenge. I super appreciate it every time colleagues, readers, and friends take a moment to spread the word over social media, recommend my books to their peeps, and do other very cool helpful things. The more copies I can push out the door this first crucial week or two will make a big impact on how things go in the coming weeks, since every purchase boosts the book’s visibility in the Amazon marketplace and sustained growth in the first few days can build the momentum I need to work my way up the sales charts.
So yeah, I need your help! Buying the book is a great way to do that!
Buying the book, and then leaving a rating on the Amazon page after you’ve read it is an even BETTER way to do that. If you’re a writer: working up a blog post, news post, or some other piece of a big site you write for is always super appreciated too.
And even if you’re not in the spending mood at the moment, sharing the link over social media is another awesome thing you could do. Look, I’ve made it super easy for you:
