As you’ve probably already guessed by the title; I am going to be on the radio! BBC Radio Lincolnshire to be exact and to be truthful, I’m a little nervous. I’ve never done anything like this at all, although I suppose I should be grateful that the listeners can’t actually see me – this isn’t TV.
So for the release of my short eBook, ‘Life is all but a vast array of Colours’ – I sent out a press release for it to a few local newspapers and radio stations. If I’m being honest, I never expected to hear back from any of them, but as I was laid in my hospital bed I got a phone call from BBC Radio Lincolnshire.
They were very interested in me appearing on their morning show, hosted by Melvyn Prior; who would be asking me questions about the eBook, where I got my inspiration from and who it is dedicated to. Also about the charity side and why I had decided to donate 50% of the royalties to Pancreatic Cancer UK. He said that he had read that I was also trying to get my other writings published and it would be a good opportunity to talk about that too.
WOW – what an opportunity! It’s a really weird feeling – I hope I can contain myself and answer everything ok. What a nightmare it would be to freeze live on air!
If you live in the UK and you are interested in tuning in to give me a listen then it will be on Tuesday 27th November at 10:00am. BBC Radio Lincolnshire airs at 94.9 FM – 104.7 FM.
Have you got any advice for me? What about you authors out there? Have you ever done radio and if so how did you handle it?
