In the first and last of my series of author interviews my guest is Baz the Bad Blogger who was happy to answer my questions as nobody else wanted him on their blog.
Welcome Baz, thanks for coming along.
It was a hell of a journey, I hope I’m going to get lots of book sales out of this.
Er, well it’s more a case of meeting lots of other interesting readers and writers. How did you come to start blogging?
THEY said it was a good way to sell my book.
What do you like to write about in your blogs?
Tell us about your new novel.
It is a dystopian fantasy set in an unnamed capital city. The government has been taken over by zombies and androids, but no one can tell the difference as none of them have any personality.
That must have made character development rather difficult.
I decided not to bother with character development.
So do you consider the plot line to be important?
I guess so, I just go for dead straight…
Moving on, what advice would you give to other bloggers?
When I started I wrote very long blogs so everyone would think I was highly intelligent.
And did they?
I don’t know, I never had any comments, so I decided to make my posts brief. I recommend two sentences at most, as no one reads past the first two lines anyway…
My second piece of advice is to have lots of pictures of fluffy kittens or cute puppies. I haven’t got any pets, but I found a dead rat in the back yard one rainy morning and he looked quite photogenic once he had been blow dried.
Your blog certainly has a unique style. How many followers do you have now?
Umm… one, Tidetables something or other.
We had to cut the interview short as Baz had somewhere more interesting to be, but you can find out more about him and his novel ‘I Zomboid’ at his author page.
