Kansas City, MO (PressExposure) March 22, 2009 -- Danielle Steel rarely grants interviews. So Bob Grant and Editor William Elliott Hazelgrove were glad to have the interview appear in their new online magazine. "We now have almost a hundred writers and when Kingsley Kobo came to us with the interview, we were more than happy to put it in the magazine."
Bob Grant started the online magazine in reaction to the pundits on television who always talk over each other. "It just drove me crazy," Mr Grant said from his office "I wanted a place where people could debate the topics of the day and be free to interact." The idea seems to have caught on quicly with the advent of a hundred writers and online traffic that keeps growing at an accelerated pace. The demise of major newspapers is not lost on Mr. Hazelgrove who sees SWI as an alternative for people who want to go to one place for their news. "We have a little something for everyone, from wirting to opinio to gardening to photography. Our platform is one of adding writers who can comment on their area of expertise."
With many companies scrambling to find their new footing in the cyberworld, the novelist sees a big increase on traffic in the next year. "Lets face it, people are going to come looking for their news somewhere and I think SWI is uniquely positioned to pick up a lot of that traffic." On perusing the various topics of the magazine, one does find somethng for everyone, from writing a novel to a rant about AIG to well, an inteview with Danielle Steel. The Kinglsly Kobo interview is fascinating in that earnest questions on art and craft are addressed by Mrs. Steel without the snicker of cultural elitism one might expect from an edgy online magazine.
"I think Kingsely did a great job, asking very insightful questions and Mrs. Steel answered them honestly," Hazelgrove continued. "We hope to have more interviews of this sort. Maybe people feel like here they can have their say and no one will sneer at them." With the pundrity on televison becoming more polarizing, let's hope so. http://www.speakwithoutinterruption.com, http://www.billhazelgrove.com Press Release Distribution by PressReleasePoint
