There are no two ways about it- preparation is definitely key. Every author should prepare a list of 10-15 “suggested interview questions” that they anticipate media will ask and then work to create

concise responses to each one.  Broadly, such content will make an important part of the author’s media kit, and yet time should be spent updating the responses since changes and new developments always arise.

In preparing responses, it’s also a sound practice to weave in concrete language and anecdotes where appropriate. It’s so much easier to quote metaphorical language for its appeal, and it is also much more memorable.
