Susan Helene Gottfried Speaks About Music, Obsession, and Writing

Susan Helene Gottfried, our good blogger friend, mind behind West of Mars, and author of Shapeshifter: The Demo Tapes Year 1, was kind enough to grant me an interview about her time at the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland.

Where is this interview you ask?! It's on my D.C. Literature Examiner here and here. Check out, leave some comments. I'm sure Susan will be by to check out your thoughts.

If you haven't read Shapeshifter yet, you should get your hands on a copy of this bird's eye view of the rock and roll universe.

I really enjoyed the interview. I signed the Blog With Integrity pledge, too, and put the badge on my blog. I just wish we didn't have to keep having this discussion over and over again. It's sad that some people believe bloggers can't be objective when given review copies. The "professional" reviewers working for newspapers, etc., receive review copies and aren't questioned.

That's what I'm wondering...why is it different for a "professional" review than for a "book review blogger?"

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Because people are more jealous of the book review blogger who gets up and DOES something than of the pro, who's getting paid.

Or so says Trevor, anyway.
