So yesterday before my writers' group meeting, I got this message from our group's facilitator, Deb. She says "wear your shirt, I'm doing a TV interview during the meeting." (We have these specially made group shirts with our logo, our names, and "ask me about my book" underneath, lol).

The interview was mostly for Deb, she set it up. But she really talked us all up: the group and the individuals. AND the newslady who came did a shot of all our books that we set up on a podium. OF COURSE I had Birth of a Unicorn and Other Stories on me, I always do ;)

The station website is here. It's supposed to air tomorrow (Friday) at 10am. Since I don't live in Bullhead and it's a local station, I don't think my TV will pick it up...which doesn't matter because I'll be at work anyway. But there has to be some way to get it, either through the website or...I mean, who has a flippin' VCR to record this stuff anymore? :P

Free publicity certainly is not something to be turned down. I would say better you than me though, since I do not believe I would enjoy being on TV. I have been trying to get in touch with a couple of the local free papers in the city, hyping BotU as a book celebrating its first birthday, but so far, they just want election stories.

Haha, yeah. I'm not on TV this time but if this continues...

And my MIL says she thinks she can pick up that station :)

Also, Friday isn't tomorrow. I don't know why I thought it was this morning.

Yayyy, that's great. I have to agree with Xerius. TV is my least favorite medium. I LOVE being on radio. And I'm really comfortable with newspaper interviews, but TV makes me a little uncomfortable. I shouldn't be though. Any time I've been on, the show has been a hit.

Anyhow, good news, Kally. Sell up a storm. If you sell all your books, a little bird has been whispering in my ear. I may come up with a special rate for you authors again to buy the book.

The little girl at the news station told me we could watch it starting at 8am PST today (Friday) up until 8am next Friday. I'll have to ask the station manager about getting a copy she said. But maybe I can copy theirs from online? We'll see when I get home from work :)

And I still have...30 or so of my 100 books, Raya, so we'll see!

You've sold 70 books? Way to go, Kally!

The 1 hour, 22 minute mark here.

Well, that was disappointing as far as seeing our anthology on TV, couldn't even see the title...it was nice coverage for our group, though.

Yeah, it was disappointing for BoaU. Maybe you could get on TV and talk about your adventures of having your first (two) stories published. They seem like a nice bunch and use a ton of stories every day. I actually quite liked the anchor and Tiffany.

I had a look at your weather forecast and just about fainted at the temperatures. Going to be in the 90's next week? OMG I would die in that kind of heat. Here it is October, and we are unseasonably warm in Esterhazy at highs of about 60 and lows around the high 30's, low 40's, just flirting with an overnight frost. Honestly, I would rather be that cold than THAT hot. :P

Well, Bullhead is generally 10-15F higher than where we are in Kingman...so, we've been having highs in the low 80s ;)

And Deb said something about putting a bug in Tiffany's ear about maybe doing an "author of the month" segment. We'll see where that goes...
