Hello. My name is Joey Pinkney, and I write and maintain JoeyPinkney.comto feature book reviews and author interviews. My goal is to give authors extra exposure. I started JoeyPinkney.com on June 2006 to do something constructive with my obsession with the internet. At first, I used my site as a vehicle to write about things such as weight loss and acne prevention, among other things. My site has slowly transitioned into what you see now – strictly about books and authors.
I use this website in conjunction with social media websites to spread the word about different authors and books that I come into contact with. This is a perfect way to have a central place to see the various authors and books that are available while also using the power of Web2.0 to generate a global level of exposure.
The JoeyPinkney.com “5 Minutes, 5 Questions With…” Author Interview Series has been a labor of love. This series has featured self-published authors and authors from the major publishing houses, virtually unknown authors to Essence and/or New York Times Best Sellers, male and female,urban lit to science fiction to nonfiction to poetry.
The “5 Minutes, 5 Questions With…” author interview series gives the authors a chance to explain their book from their perspective. The reader gets a behind-the-scene look at what it took to make the book what it is. What used to be a primarily African-American vehicle for literary promotions now includes authors from Canada, the U.K., Ireland and even Australia! I look forward to featuring more authors from more countries in the future.
