There’s always something new, so here’s the latest book promotion idea. Medallion Press, according to Publishers Weekly, has introduced the “action interview.”
The action interview is an audio download, not of the author discussing his book, but of the author and actors and sound effects. Its aim is to immerse listeners in selected scenes from the plot, right alongside the characters. These action interviews will be available via podcast or through download.
On the Medallion site, they have two of these downloads available so far this month: Emerald Embrace by Shannon Drake and Diary of a Confessions Queen by Kathy Carmichael.
It think the new ideas publishers and authors come up with are so interesting. I love hearing of new efforts to promote books. Do you think hearing scenes from a book “acted out” would entice you to buy the book? Is adding this new “dimension” to book promotion something you might consider trying to do with your own book?
