Working for a living is no fun.
Well, it is a little fun. But my new job is very intense and takes up a lot of time. It won’t always, but right now there are many Things To Do and I am doing many of them.
Why am I whining about this? Mainly because, due to this, I have less time to do things for Fantasy that I want to, including doing interviews of authors, actors, producers, etcetc. Yes, we are starting to do interviews of folks in the wider media now. And as much as I would like to get on the phone with Robert Picardo and ask hm what Kate Mulgrew is really like, I just do not have the time.
So, if anyone out there is interested in doing some interviews for Fantasy, email me asap. If you don’t have a lot of experience, don’t worry, I’ll assign you to the easier ones (author spotlights and artist profiles all start out with the same questions, then I’ll guide you through how I go about doing follow-ups based on them. It’s not hard to learn, you just have to be interested). If you have some or a lot of experience, then I’ll let you loose on authors and actors and such depending on your areas of interest and knowledge.
Gmail address: fantastictempest. Subject: Interviewer Applicant. In the body of the email just let me know if you have experience, if you’re more comfortable doing email, phone, or instant message interviews, and links to stuff you’ve done, if applicable.
We don’t pay interviewers (or anyone else) so I am indeed interested in folks who are looking to build up experience. You have to start somewhere, and I do have time to give guidance and advice and editorial oversight so that you’re not just flailing in the wind.
