Because we happen to be here (and because my mom is good at this promotion stuff), my mother got me my first radio interview here on a local Texas radio station. I've never done anything remotely like this before, so I have to say I was a little nervous (not to mention the fact that we were a little jet lagged at 8am) but it ended up being a great experience. I had a half hour of back and forth chat about writing and Six O'clock with Richard "The Ham", host of the morning show on KYOX FM, and then a few minutes on their AM sister station after that. I didn't swear (something I was a little worried about), I didn't say "um" or "you know" or even "like" and the kids said I didn't sound like an idiot, which is good enough for me.
It was really fun, and I'm looking forward to doing it again, now that I know I won't throw up when a microphone is placed in front of me.
