What's the worst question you've ever been asked in an interview?

"What are three attributes that would make you a good addition to the Blockbuster Video team?"

Can you describe a random or unexpected experience you've had while promoting a book?

One time I gave a reading ... and people showed up!

How do you celebrate after you've finished a book?

I spike the manuscript like it's a football, then quietly reassemble it.
