Amazon.com author interviews

  [vote for,

This morning I saw a podcast with the author of a newly released book. The podcast created a tipping point effect and I went to the amazon.com and bought the book. After making the purchase I realized the book had no reviews (yet). Had I come looking for the book and seen no reviews I would never have bought it. So here is the idea: amazon.com should have author interviews and post them on their site, this adds another dimension to the buying experience and my hunch is it will boost sales.

       Baked: "New feature! Amazon now allows customers to upload product video reviews. Use a webcam or video camera to record and upload reviews to Amazon."
Authors can do this too.

       [ldischler] so an author makes a video where he/she asks and answers their own questions? I don't think my idea suggests that approach.

       Looks like you can do whatever you want. Get an interviewer; they're not stopping you.

       Yeah, Amazon makes it very easy for authors to promote their books.
