Book Talk!

by Kris Fletcher

Back in, oh, August or so, a fellow writer posted a message on her Facebook page. The PBS station for orthern New York was putting together a limited series profiling local authors. Would any of us be interested in participating?

I loved the idea, raised my digital hand, and was lucky enough to be included. In September I made the hour or so drive north to Watertown to visit the home of WPBS-TV and tape the interview. In October, the authors, host, and station personnel gathered at the local library for a kick off. And on Halloween, BOOK TALK was on the air!

My episode featured three authors of fiction - Ellen Marie Wiseman, who got this ball rolling in the first place; my dear friend and critique partner Gayle Callen/Emma Cane; and moi. Thanks to the miracle of the internet, even those of us outside the WPBS viewing area can still see the show. So if you have ever wished you could sit for for half an hour and chat with three authors, here's your chance!

I can't get Blogger to recognize the link because it's not on YouTube. But if you'd like to have a look, hop over here. (My part starts around the 9:40 mark.) And check out this screenshot: my books, (sort of) on TV!

I'm having the hardest time getting Blogger to do what I want with this article. The link to the interview: http://watch.wpbstv.org/video/2365361186/

Here's hoping that one shows up!

Kris the link worked for me. I don't have the time to watch it right now but I will soon. It sounds so interesting.
