Online Interview Guidelines

Prepare for the online interview:

Get the details. You need to know how long the interview will be and how (whether through a video call or an audio call) and where (whether Skype, Zoom or any video conferencing app) it will be conducted.

Confirm the time zone of your interview. Take your interviewer’s time zone into consideration when scheduling your online interview.

Choose a location. Find a spot with no distractions of sights or choose a neutral background like a blank wall. If a blank wall isn’t an option, try to manipulate your background to look like a more professional setting, like an organized office.

Create good lighting. Have two lights – one slightly to your left and the other slightly to your right – positioned in front of you. It’s better if one of these is a window but table lamps will do fine.

Figure out which device will work best. Use the device, whether it’s a smartphone, tablet, desktop, or laptop, with the most reliable technology (internet connection plus camera) and one you’re more comfortable with.

Do a test run. Run a trial interview with a friend to test the video conferencing app, lighting setup, sound, and internet connection to ensure everything works fine.

Do your own research. Observe other online interviews facilitated by your interviewer in the past. Get a glimpse of how the program flows and internalize the tone and vibe of other segments.

Send information about yourself and your book. Make sure to send your publicity kit to your interviewer or their representative. You may also want to check this with your Author Relations Officer (ARO).

What to do before the interview:

Wear a comfortable and presentable outfit. Dress professionally as this will not only make a good impression but also boost your confidence and improve your focus.

Eliminate distractions. Make sure your interview environment, as well as your computer screen, is free from distraction and interruption.

Set up your space. Prepare the area around where you’ll be sitting for your online interview. Make sure you have a glass of water, some paper and a pen for note-taking, and cheat sheets.

Log on at least 15 minutes early. Logging on at least 15 minutes early will give you the chance to make sure everything is working as it should one last time.

What to do during the interview:

Be mindful of your body language. Maintain good body posture. Sit properly and comfortably. Maintain natural, attentive eye contact. Smile often.

Try not to market yourself too much. The audience obviously doesn’t want to hear your sales pitch. Instead of constantly pushing your brand or cause, find a way to strategically bind your call-to-action to your responses.

Develop rapport with the audience and the interviewer. Answer the questions the best you can without straying off-topic. Maintain eye contact.

Relax and enjoy. Remember to relax and enjoy the whole experience.

What to do after the interview:

Thank your interviewer. Thank your interviewer and the audience for taking the time to interview you and having you in the program.

Embed your recorded video on your website. Embed the YouTube video of your interview on your website.
Share on social networks. Make sure to share the YouTube link to your interview on your favorite social networks. Encourage your family, friends, and followers to like and share your interview video.

Create a blog or social media post. Write a blog article or social media post about your thoughts on the interview.
Contact ARO if you wish to have another interview session, especially if you have another or different book to promote.

BBB Reviews

I am very appreciative of Readers Magnet for giving me exposure to their audience. The platform is great for reaching new readers. I would like to personally thank ***** for being patient and supportive. Readers Magnet is the perfect place for readers and writers to meet.
I would love to provide an excellent five stars for ReadersMagnet. For allowing newbie authors like me, it's my pleasure to be part of their author's lounge very soon. Thank you so much for the opportunity.
ReadersMagnet delivered. An article I wrote about my latest book, 'Mazes of the Mind', was posted on their site and promoted by them. For free. Very professional. I highly recommend them to any aspiring writer.

Trustpilot Reviews

I was so thrilled that my book is being featured in the Author’s Lounge of Readers Magnet. I was not aware of this service until Chloe Lopez contacted me. I’ve said time and time again, writing and illustrating my book was the easy part. The marketing, however, is a full time job with which I am not familiar. Chloe was so helpful, patient and professional throughout the process and I am so grateful. She was an absolute joy to work with!
Thank you Melissa Arthur for contacting me regarding my novel Grace for Grant: A Journey with an Old Soul. My article is now in the author’s lounge and gaining the exposure it deserves. Readers Magnet is a great way to gain exposure for independent authors. What a great way for writers to support each other. Cheers!
Thank you, ReadersMagnet, for encouraging people like Ms. Siara Lynch to be so supportive of authors with whom she engages. My experience, with her help, proved very rewarding and quite a pleasure as she ushered in an atmosphere that left me feeling comfortable and at ease. The feature of my novel turned out great and proved a huge benefit.


This was my first time using the website and doing an interview with them. I worked with Saira, who was really helpful and nothing was too much trouble, she helped me navigate around and pointed me in the right direction when I had a couple of queries. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone- they gave a first class service.
Thank you so much to Saira Lynch for her generosity on behalf of Readers Magnet for inviting me to feature featuring my book The Untangling in the Authors’ Lounge at Readers Magnet. It was very unexpected and much appreciated and a great opportunity for me to promote my book.
I would like to thank Saira Lynch for featuring my new science fiction and adventure book “Rorkk’s Captive (Rotari Warriors Book 1)” in the Authors’ Lounge at Readers Magnet. This kind of exposure is invaluable to new authors, and I hope it inspires others to continue their writing careers.
