Cosmic Dragon

Folks! I did a podcast! Huge thanks to Sean Grigsby for allowing me to prove that, whilst I am no good at selling either my books or myself, I can blither with the best of them.

Check out this podcast I did for Cosmic Dragon and marvel at my inability to make any coherent points whatsoever!

8-tips-on-how-to-have-a-successful-radio-interview

This is, as per bloomin’ usual, a photo stolen from the internet. I do not look that good.

I’m buried in proofreading and copy-editing at the moment, my deadlines teaming up to smack me oop-side the head. And my daughter has the plague, which is… unhelpful. These are my primary excuses for not having much to say this week.

So please excuse the brevity of this communique. But if you want to hear more about some of my writerly philosophies and the problems of cultural insensitivity, you might like to check out this interview I did on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire on Monday.

I’m on from around 02:20 in, right after Katy Perry. I’m in and out for nearly 40 mins, which came as something of a surprise to me.

Big thanks and kudos to Charlie Thompson for making me feel at ease and for drawing out the best of us guests. Remember, if you ever do interviews like this, the host is your ally. They will do their best to make you sound good.

And now it’s back to the word-mines with me. Them deadlines won’t meet themselves.

Hopefully I’ll have broken the back of them – and have maybe done something more interesting – in time for next week’s blog.

In the meantime may the words rise up to meet the pen.

Fresh from Monday’s book-signing, I had my first ever radio interview on Tuesday. It went not horrifically – or if it did then no-one’s been honest enough to tell me.

Make up your own mind. I’m on from about nine minutes in, right after ‘Papa Don’t Preach.’ At one point I’m interrupted by Freddie Mercury, but as a Queen fan I can’t complain too much.

As with yesterday’s extracurricular post there’s a lot more to say about this than I have time (or brain) for right now. Soon, my pretties, soon.

Be well.
