On Friday, May 30, 2014 I was interviewed by Jeanne Alexander for a fifteen minute televised every week day afternoon on channel 7 Access Communications. Writing in Saskatchewan has been televised nationally and has been on air since 2008.
I researched on the internet about what to wear on TV. Not white. I wore a blue dress and navy sweater. I reviewed my research notes about Woman of Substance. I practiced my reading so it would be flawless and within the time frame. I had my hair done and arrived early at the appointed place. I stood to keep my energy up until it was my turn to be interviewed. We sat in two wing backed chairs in a library setting. Jeanne Alexander is an experienced interviewer and helped me feel as if I was talking with a friend. I was surprised though that even though I had completed my research when questions were asked I retreated to answers I was familiar with. I am interested in seeing the finished product. If I can find a link, I will post it on my blog.
On Wednesday, June 4, 2014 at 11:00 am I was again interviewed by Jeanne Alexander for the program WORDS ON AIR http://www.cjtr.ca/CJTR 91.3 FM; Access7 – 341; SaskTel Max 806; and on www.cjtr.ca . I asked Jeanne how she came to be in the position of interviewer and she told me that she began with Toastmasters. http://reports.toastmasters.org/findaclub/searchresults.cfm?Country=Canada&State=Saskatchewan
The half hour flew by but unfortunately I didn’t have a chance to hear myself. A friend heard me and said I did well.
Presently I am participating in TRR Summer Sizzling Reads Party http://www.theromancereviews.com/event.php . But all of this fun is on line. This event provides opportunities for readers and authors to find each other. There are games and prizes. Stop on by. You have to register but it is free.
I am also part of a blog hop. My fellow Saskatchewan Writer Ryshia Kennie invited me to participate. Her blog was posted on Monday, June 9, 2014. Each of the authors who participate answer four questions. Here is Ryshia’s post ryshia.blogspot.com. My post will take place on June 23, 2014.
I have also been back into my work in process. I am revising Chapter 20 of the manuscript with working title:
“Designed With Love” .
Time does fly when we are having fun.
