I did one of the best interviews I've ever done, and surely the longest, with Catherine MacDonald for the first ever Meet the Author Podcast at BookLending.com.
Here's a time breakdown of key points we touch on:
0:00 -- Intro
2:45 -- my invention of "footchapters" and David Foster Wallace & Junot Diaz
4:20 -- screenwriting and why I put that aside for awhile to write books
7:00 -- themes of success and failure in "How to Fail"
11:00 -- how I was forced to format "How to Fail" for the Kindle myself
12:30 -- falling in love with reading on the Kindle
13:30 -- thoughts on lending/sharing my books
14:50 -- Paulo Coelho pirating his own books
15:30 -- my 30 Bars in 30 Days book tour and why I don't like doing bookstore signings
17:30 -- "picking up" customers at the bar
20:00 -- the state of publishing today and where I think things are going
22:00 -- the lack of bias on Amazon
22:50 -- self-published authors such as Amanda Hocking selling better than published authors
24:30 -- "The Cheat Sheet" (now only 99 cents on Kindle!)
26:00 -- the future, Aaron? The future...
27:00 -- my appearance at West Point and meeting people on my bar tour
30:00 -- the importance of having a great sample on Kindle
30:30 -- "The Cheat Sheet" film festival
It didn't make the cut, but I also talked about the book I'm currently working on, "Failing to Fail," which is a non-fiction novel detailing all the sordid details behind the publishing and selling of "How to Fail" and featuring guide-like elements on how to get a book made.
