Add a few fun facts to your media kit
“People love reading fun facts, like these, about their favorite authors:Stephen King said that if he had the chance to live his life all over again, he wouldn’t change a thing, except he’d want to appear in an advertisement for American Express.”
When I was interviewed once for a local newspaper, naturally they asked about my latest book. But they also wanted a human interest approach. That makes those being interviewed more approachable, especially when the very human thing is rather universal.
I agree that this can spice up a media kit or a website or a blog post as long as it doesn’t get out of hand and make your look like an amateur rather than a professional writer.
