There's been a delay from the printer with Lessons In Stalking. The book was supposed to be in this week but they have 2 huge book runs of 20,000 and 22,000 copies to run, so my itty-bitty book run of 2,000 has been pushed back.
I sent not a nasty e-mail but a "I am not pleased with the situation" e-mail to my contact at the printer. She wrote back that she was trying to sneak my book in between the two print runs and hoped to have it to me by next Thursday, which would be October 6th.
I was disappointed but then got a grip. People are in crisis the world over. The fact that I have to wait an extra week or two for my book is pretty damn minor in comparison. I always like to ask myself, when I feel blood temperature rising, is this a problem or an inconvenience? 99% of the time, it's an inconvenience.
I have my first radio interview tomorrow - WGOS AM radio at 9:05 am. The station is in Greensboro so I'm actually going into the station to do the interview live instead of over the phone. It's a small world - the D.J. who's interviewing me has an office next to a man whose newspaper I used to write for. They are good friends and have known each other for years. So maybe he'll be extra nice to me since I'm friends with a friend.
I'm a little nervous as this is my first radio interview and I have no idea what will be asked. The interview is for the Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul book but I'm hoping to plug my book as well. I'll post tomorrow how the interview went.
