Tonight at 7:30 p.m. I was interviewed for approximately thirty minutes on a live internet radio program. According to the program’s Website, Lillian Cauldwell, the interviewer, “started Passionate Internet Voices Talk Radio, Inc. when she decided to create her own public broadcast radio talk internet station.” This station has a huge audience. Cauldwell is a noted author, speaker, media trainer, mentor, writing instructor, book reviewer, and CEO/President of PIVTR and Pod-cast Media Broadcast Services. Obviously, she is a sharp and multi-talented lady. I also found her to be an engaging interviewer. In addition to providing me this interview, she has agreed to write a review of Jim Limber Davis: A Black Orphan in the Confederate White House. I studied the Website carefully, and I think I will tune in to their interesting and eclectic programing when I can. Here is the address:
Speaking of sharp ladies, this interview was arranged by my promotion manager at Pelican Publishing, Samantha Perez. Having just graduated from high school, she became a summer intern with my publisher. She has helped me immensely in the promotion of my children’s book. Not only has she done a fantastic job with Pelican in promotion, I found out she is an award-winning writer herself. Specifically, she was the winner of the 2006 Mel Williams Award for Excellence in Writing, the top journalism prize from the Scholastic Press Forum.
