The Morning Blend

I recently had an interview on a local morning TV show. It was an adventure all by itself. Getting a behind the scenes look at a live TV show. I have a new appreciation for the hosts and producers who were busy bees behind the scenes. Also, I appreciated that during the commercial breaks, Allison and Molly took a few moments before to warm me up, and a few moments after to thank me.

For the record, I had no idea what they were going to ask me, so I was a bit surprised the interview became so philosophical. Also, not sure why the heck I was filmed sideways…

I also met Adam Ciralsky, the NBC News producer with the new show The Wanted and who also worked on 60 Minutes and the Today Show. I gave him my “elevator speech” and he said my book was interesting enough that he’s going to hand-deliver it to the Today Show in New York City this week. That could be my lucky break.

My Indie Book Award Arrived

My award arrived in the mail for the anniversary edition of Falling Uphill. Yay! You could call this my coming of age journey. The sequel is planned for 2037. I imagine I’ll have some interesting perspective as I do it all again. Well… maybe not the whole world via bicycle. Thank you Next Generation Indie Book Awards
