I agree with you that it is still interesting to here their views and experiences on writing and being published in general. I imagine a lot of us here have given a least a few idle moments wondering if we could ever write ourselves, so it would always be interesting to here about that from people who have actually done it. And it's always nice to give these authors a bit of exposure and maybe find a new author to read

Having said I don't tend to read them though, I do think interviews and Q&A sessions with new authors are a good idea because it helps people here to find new authors and new authors to get feedback directly from real people. Also, I'm guessing the more of them you do the more well known the site will become and that can only be a good thing!
I like the more informal style of the current author chat with Michelle Gorman you are running!

I have found that I tend to interview authors when I read a book of theirs which I like, as it makes for a more interesting interview. I really don't want to have a series of interviews all with the same questions. The author chat is much easier, as it opens it up to the lovely people here... but I don't want authors left sitting here with no one talking to them.

So yes, I do like reading their interviews - even if I'm not familiar with them.

I am going to have to correct you on the chicklit assumption - I do the majority of these myself, and it's not a genre I tend to read. There may some 'women's fiction' authors there, but as Michele Gorman has said, that's actually a different genre.
Fair enough, but speaking as a 40 something single male, the line between chick lit and women's fiction isn't easy to differentiate!

I like reading interviews of known authors and not really known. There are many talented new authors, they have their own style of writing. It is interesting to read something fresh and new. And of course it is always interesting to read interviews of known authors - they can share their experience of writing and give useful advices.

I've looked through them (briefly), and haven't heard of many of the authors you have interviewed.
I would love to read an interview with Mike Gayle or Chris Ryan - two contemporary authors whose books I can't get enough of. Both of them have a presence on Twitter so maybe you can tweet them and ask them for an interview. That would be great.
