I've been so encouraged by everyone's wonderful support of my venture into publishing... thanks  Kiss Kiss ... and I have been trying to promote my work and wrote to our local BBC radio station. To my surprise they asked me to the studio to do an interview.

I was very nervous but I thought of Raul and how cool, calm and laid back he always is when he is interviewed and tried to be coherent, and managed to stay calm - although I'll never be as cool as Raul, no-one could!

The programme is available for the next seven days... don't know if you all can get the link but here it is:

I am about 1hour and 40 minutes into the programme!

I can't express
the ridiculous excess of joy;
the right set of chords,
the juxtaposition of a few notes and words,
can bring to a heart
that had broken apart
into thousands of pieces...
What a miracle this is!

Wow!  Lois...you were calm and witty and came off as the pro you are!  Seems like you are headed in the right direction.  Now we can all claim an Indie Author as our own.  Congratulations!

What a great interview Lois! You did a fabulous job....you sounded very cool, calm and collected. I was telling young writer friend about self-publishing and how I thought she should try that. She said that she had heard that it was harder for authors who self-publish to get a publisher because they are no longer considered "new authors". I was pleased to hear that refuted in this interview. How exciting that he knew of a self-published author who got a SIX book deal. Wow! I hope that will be YOU!! I have to share this with my friend. I also love that the term Indie Author.....SOOOO cool! So proud of you Lois! Great job!! Cool Cool Cool
