Yesterday I did an interview on Blog Talk Radio promoting my short story, If You Believe, which will release by Helping Hands Press tomorrow, I think. It was one of the scariest things I've ever done. I felt as if I was using words for the very first time. I can't imagine how I sounded--wait! I CAN imagine! I'm a Texan who has lived in Louisiana for the past 30 years. You probably know how I sound now too. Remind me not to do radio interviews again--and tack TV onto that too. I don't think fast enough for either. I'm not a 'small-talk' person. In fact, I'm incredibly shy. I think it would have been better if I'd been able to look into the face of my interviewer. A friendly face is encouraging. Right?
Anyway... that's where I am. Learning how to promote and talk about my books and stories and ... I don't like it very much.
If you want to hear my blog talk interview, you can go to the link below. My mind went blank a time or two. I'm sure you'll be able to tell. Thank goodness my host was good at covering my silence.
