If you are a romance writer, publisher or artist,
I want you on my show.
Tell me a little about yourself—briefly—what kind of books you write, how many have you’ve had published (it’s okay if this is your first release) and let me know if you have a release due and when.
If you are a publisher, tell me which one and what your job/function is.
I don’t need much as all I want is to know who you are (I’d like to know both your pen name and actual name – I get confused easily). I’ll email you back, usually within 24 hours, to start the process.
The first part of the process is qualification. The Romance Radio Network is wonderful promotion and helps sell books. To start, send me a chapter of your book and a brief bio. Within a day, I’ll get back to you and let you know if you make the cut. I want to see your final, edited work.
If you meet professional standards, I’ll send you a return email detailing most all I need to schedule you for an interview.
We’ll need to agree on a convenient date and time and I’ll need a telephone number.
If we’re going to be discussing a particular book, a new release, for instance, please arrange to have an Advance Review Copy (ARC) sent to me at least a week prior to our recording session.
When I call you on our scheduled date and time, I will not have the recorder enabled. I’d like to chat for a few minutes, prior to recording. When we’re ready, I’ll announce I’m recording and the basic format is your background as a writer, your latest book and then what you’re doing in the immediate future. If you’re a publisher, we’ll talk about publishing, your company, what you do for them and we may get involved on some tangential subjects.
After we disconnect, I’ll edit the file, add the R•R•N theme music, add my intro and piece it all together. The result is a MP3 file, universally compatible with all MP3 players, including the iPod, iPhone and iPod Touch. I’ll send you a link to use on your web site and also a link where you can download a free web audio player to embed on your web pages, allowing your fans to play the interview directly. I’ll send the same package to your publisher.
Allow approximately 45 minutes for our session and don’t worry, if we make a mistake, I can stop and restart or edit the file.
My intent is to present you in the best possible light and promote your books.
