This Saturday, April 9, 2016, I will be interviewed by David Snape -at 6:00pm GMT time and 1:00 Eastern Standard time. This can be found at http://davidsnape.me/tag/radio/
David approached me a couple of months back and asked if I’d be interested in a radio interview. I have to admit -I’m scared to death. It isn’t that I’ve never done a live interview, but this one means so much more -as it will be about my book.
What happens if I forget my own material -because of my nerves? Oh, this would be embarrassing. I plan on making lots of clear notes so I have something to refer to. Little things like:
- What is the name of the town Hiroto lived in? Okay, he probably won’t answer that, but when I was thinking about it last night -well, it took a couple of minutes (I wasn’t under any pressure either). Answer: Goldfield, Nevada
- How did you come up with L4-13354? He won’t ask this one either, but do I even really know how I came up with this? I think I just punched numbers -obviously the ones close together.
- Why “L”? I liked the look of it. Boy, now that’s a stupid answer. Let’s hope he doesn’t go there.
- When did you begin this story and how long did it take to write? Was it March or April last year? Honestly, I didn’t’ write down a date. I suppose I could research -but I’d rather not. It took 3 hard weeks -that one I’ve got because it was grueling, near constant writing. I just couldn’t stop.
- Where do you live? This one is easy -Indiana.
- Why do you write? My fingers make me.
- Do you read a lot of romance? No. I like thrillers like The Numa Series by Clive Cussler, or fantasy like The Shannara Series by Terry Brooks.
- Why do you write romance? Cause I love to fall in love over and over with my husband. The stories spark the newness of love. (okay, I will never remember this under pressure. I will probably say something stupid like: It’s fun!
- What’s next? Keep writing.
Now, evaluating my answers -this will make for one majorily boring interview. Anyone have some good advice to make this more appealing? Have you don’t a radio interview about your writings? Please share your wisdom. I need help! HELP!!!!!
