With The Interview Spot established interview requests are going out.
My first novel, Norwegian by Night, opened many doors, giving me access to writers from a variety of domains. In the UK, for example, it was published by Faber and Faber as a crime novel. I therefore had the pleasure to attend Crimefest and Harrogate, both of which introduced me to the wonderful (and extremely collegial) world of crime, suspense and thriller writers. Elsewhere, the novel was published simply as “literary fiction” as with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in the United States. And so I have met writers working in that vast enterprise. Invitations have gone out there as well.
Because the novel was published in over a dozen countries and languages, my editors in these countries naturally have access to writers there too. So hopefully some writers who write in languages other than English will join us in 2014.
I’ll announce the first interview soon.
