WEMF Radio's Citywide Blackout Interview

Last night, after a long day that started at 5:15 in the morning, earlier if you count the numerous times our new puppy woke us in the middle of the night, I traveled to Boston after work for an interview on WEMF Radio's Citywide Blackout show.  The host, Matt Zappa, was simply awesome!  The interview's 30-minute time limit flew as we touched on the evolution of my Overlords Fantasy Book Series, how to organize your thoughts and get them into print, character development and their growth throughout the series, how my life experiences weaved their way into my novels, baseball and my signature pitch, the knuckleball, the 2015 Rhode Island Authors Expo, and so much more.  Matt was totally engaging and had really done his homework, mentioning that being an engineer must be a complete change from writing fantasy -- and it is!  I presented Matt with ten Overlords eBooks via a Dropcard, which comes in the form of a gift card and allows the user to download one eBook of their choice using a unique access code.  Matt was blown away, not realizing that authors as well as musicians as himself have a way to hand out their digital work in the form of a gift card when they are at events.

I'm sure that I'll take advantage of his offer to come on the show again, as well as to meet his co-host Max Bowen, who unfortunately was away on a personal commitment.  Rumor has it he's a cool guy, too.  The podcast will be available next week and I'll be sure to provide a link so that everyone can give it a listen at their convenience.  Once again, thanks Matt and WEMF Radio for having me on your show.  Maybe next time we'll to a Periscope event -- why not!
