Gooooood Morning, Bennington!

This morning broke new ground for me. And no, I don't mean through the ice and snow (although some patches on 787, that was kind of close).

I was on the radio. ((Cue Donna Summer tune here!))

I was on WTBN 1370-AM at 8 am. Rich, the host of the program, interviewed me about Hell's Belles, writing, getting published, and comic books. I was nervous at first; would I sound like a goober? Would I do the radio equivalent of having spinach stuck between my teeth?

Well, even though I flubbed a few things (like, duh, forgetting what the initials AAR stand for), I had a lot of fun. And I listened to the interview on the long drive home (Rich, bless him, made a copy on CD for me)...and you know what?

A) I like my radio voice -- I sound kinda New York Sexy. Nothing at all what I look like. (Heh, Rich even said that I don't look like I wrote a book about demons and strippers--I look "meek." I said, "Thanks, I think." I SHOULD have said that the whips clashed with the outfit. But I hadn't had enough coffee to be witty on the spot.)

B) I didn't sound like a goober. I sounded like I knew what I was talking about. Really! I fooled him! I fooled them ALL! BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Er. Cough.

C) Rich invited me back when The Road to Hell hits the shelves. SQUEE!

Separately, I have to thank, praise, and shower affection on Devon Ellington, who wrote in A Biblio Paradise that Hell's Belles was a favorite read over the past few months. "Urban fantasy extraordinaire, with succubus Jezebel on the run from Hell, learning what it means to be human." THANK YOU, DEVON. (Psst. The check is in the mail.)

It's funny because I realized after missing you on IM that I hadn't found out how that went. Thank goodness we have blogs to update everyone on our lives. :) Congrats on a job well-done!

Congrats on being fabulous again :)

When are you going to make the interview available for your loyal public? Convert it to an MP3 for your hellions please? :-D

Sweetie, I call it like I see it.

By the way, radio is my FAVORITE way to do any sort of promotion! I'm shy in person, but put me in front of a radio mike and I can do ANYTHING.

I discovered it when I was promoting one of my plays in Australia.

Ok, you are now on the pedestal....*sighs* Radio? I'm sure I'd sound like a dweeb.

Heehee. Congrats girl. That is "too cool" as Heather said.
