* A 45 MINUTE LIVE INTERVIEW WITH ME *

*Update Thursday April 10, 2014*

My telephone interview went really well yesterday. ** I've deleted the direct link to listen, only because I'm trying all kinds of things to see if I can get my blog to look "normal" again...at least to me.

Yes, a 45 minute LIVE interview tomorrow, Wednesday April 9th. Please keep reading for all the information.

The most amazing thing happened to me because of an internet search. I couldn't find the site I was looking for and in one of those serendipitous discoveries, I landed on Karen Lynn Maher's website, LegacyONEauthors.



I immediately saw that Karen's business helps authors through every stage of writing: Plan. Write. Publish. And she was and still is offering a FREE 30 Minute Phone Consultation! So, I decided to take advantage of speaking with Karen, even though I've already published my memoir. Because I obviously want to learn as much as I can about this writing/publishing world we live in.



Although I missed our scheduled phone time, (yes, I really did!) Karen was gracious enough to leave a voice-mail, saying I could call her back because I was the only one slated for that period. So, what did I do? I called her right back.

As I told Karen about my journey to publication, she was so kind and encouraging. She said it sounded like I was doing everything the right way and offered a few other suggestions.

I won't go into everything Karen's business offers, because it can be found on her website. And if you're an author, don't forget about the FREE 30 Minute Phone Consultations.

Okay, so here's what's happening tomorrow. If anyone wants to listen to the live interview, figure out what time that is in your time zone! Here's the info:

* Expert Authors Unplugged - Sharing the Journey
  (A Conversation with Becky Povich)
* Wednesday, April 9th, 1:00 - 1:45 PM (Pacific)
* Dial-in Number: 209-647-1600
* Code: 619959

This will allow anyone to listen to the entire interview if desired. It will also be recorded and available for all at a later date.

I apologize for such short notice, but this was all just put together! I'm excited about it and I hope many of you can listen in. But if you forget, don't feel bad. You're reading the blog of the Queen of Forgetfulness!

    1. Thanks, EC
      I just love that word, "serendipity" but I never thought to use it until Lisa Claro wrote about it a year or two ago. It's even fun to say!

  9. Hi Becky....Hope the interview went well. I'm just now getting caught up on reading blog posts so I missed it.

    Hope it's warming up there, Becky. Today in western Mass, it was sunny but still on the chilly side.

    Take care. Susan p.s. Thanks for your visits to my blog. Always nice to see you've stopped by.

  10. Hope you had fun with it! I never have liked the publicity side of writing too much. With my first book, the publisher made me go to a lot of signings and do a lot of interviews. I was always happy when it was over!

    1. Hi Julie! Thank you! It's great to see your lovely face here in my comments!
      I know I need to stop by your blog. It's been way too long. And I DID have a good time during the interview. You can listen anytime, and to as little as you want. 45 minutes is a LONG interview!

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
