I’m blinded by the spotlight once more. I’ve been on radio shows before. Shows that were hosted by my friends. I wasn’t that nervous. I love those people (Hilly, Jester, Karl, Fab, Turnbaby, Kyra) and being on their shows was easy. Awhile back I did ARe’s What’s Hot in Romance. It was a quick bit because I wasn’t the only author on. The hostess made it easy and my familiarity with how it works kept my nerves at bay.
Tonight, I’m back in the spotlight on Phoebe Jordan’s Talk About My Favorite Authors Blog Talk Radio show. That’s a full 90 minutes of ME. Yikes! Scary stuff. Especially without Jester propping me up asking me amusing and inciteful questions. I’m also one of those dorks who can’t type and talk on the phone. (No bluetooth headset either. Had one, hated it, gave it to Rott who loves it.) That means my chatroom participation is about nil. Maybe I’ll ask Motley to show me again how to do speakerphone on this phone. (I know, I’m supposed to be techie. But I only use my phone as a hand held phone, sometimes as a camera, and to get and send email. I don’t do anything else with it.)
At any rate, I would love to have you all stop by with questions about Ride the Lightning. I’m sure someone is going to ask about the real Dave and Vahid and how much the characters are like the real men. (They aren’t alike other than a loose physical description and one or two personality quirks.) This is a Thursday night though so I’m a little worried that the audience will be small and I’ll run out of things to talk about or have a shortage of questions. I’m getting my nerves now. Tonight, I’ll prolly be fine. LOL
If you get the chance, please do come by Blog Talk Radio for Phoebe Jordan’s show. It’s on from 9 PM to 10:30 PM EST (8PM to 9:30PM CST / 6PM to 7:30PM PST.) Come and ask me any question you like! (Even about Throbbing Vampire Cock!) I’m an open book, pun intended!
