Picture it: you check your email and find a message from Matt Lauer! Jackpot! You’ve finally landed that big-time interview, but there’s a catch: they’re requesting a bunch of info about you and your book before your interview.
No biggie, just send over your media kit! You *do* have a media kit, right? Or do you figure all of the same information is available on your website? We’re curious — what are your thoughts on media kits? Tell us:
- Do you have a traditional media kit? If not, why not?
- What was your process for putting together your media kit? Did you have difficulty deciding what to include?
- How often have you used your media kit? Did someone request it or did you send it out?
- Is there a particular piece of information in your kit that gets used/requested more than others?
- Do you have a schedule for keeping your media kit updated?
- Are media kits outdated in this digital age? What do you use instead?
We can’t wait to hear your responses! To join the discussion, please leave a comment below addressing any (or all) of the above questions. Also, mention the discussion to your indie author friends — we’d love to hear from everyone!
