Interview Questions


These are basic questions but feel free to change the interview to meet your book or promotional needs. Keep it personable and don't go into blatant self promotion. Feel free to add, change or delete questions and remember that The Western Online is a family site, so no adult content. The editor will make the final decision on what will be published.

Also, be sure to include a short author bio of around 100 words written in third person and an author picture.

Copy and paste these questions along with your answers into an email and send them to: editor*at*

1. Can you describe your story for our readers?

2. How is your story one that would interest the readers of The Western Online?

3. What motivates the protagonist in your story? What is he/she trying to prove?

4. How would you define the term "Western" and what does it mean to you?

5. What draws you to writing Westerns?

6. What writers have influenced you the most?

7. What is your favorite Western, either novel or movie? Why?

8. If you could go back in time and meet one famous person in the Old West, who would it be and why?

9. What are you plans for the future? Are you working on a sequel?

10. Is there anything else you'd like to add?
