I had my first television interview on Friday – Book Lovers TV, a local cable access television show in Easton, Massachusetts, had me on as a guest. It was actually a really good experience. I say “actually” because I’m the type of person who accepts such proposals with glee – “wow! an interview! what fun!” – only to be struck with intense nervousness once the date arrives. Luckily, the nervousness passed quickly. Once I started talking I felt much better, and the 30 minutes really did breeze by, which amazed me. Of course, this is all thanks to my lovely interviewer, Madeline Miele Holt, the Director of the Ames Free Public Library. A good interviewer with good questions makes ALL the difference!
Such is the excitement around here. I’ve also been busy trying to schedule readings in March after the release of The King’s Rose. If you happen to know of any bookstores or libraries who may be interested in a reading/book talk, please let me know! I’m also thinking of having a book trailer put together, because when they’re done well they are incredibly cool.
Meanwhile, it’s autumn, and I am so happy about it. I was CHILLY last night – it was delightful. Mind you, I’ll be sick of all the chilliness around, say, January. But right now I’m really enjoying it. I love fall. I even baked an apple pie. And in honor of the waning summer, here is a photo of a Mr. Lincoln in front of our house:
