This evening, between 7 and 8 p.m. EST, I’ll be talking A Hole in the Ground and writing and who knows what else at A Kind Voice on Books. The mission of A Kind Voice is “to make our world a kinder, more connected place, one conversation at a time,” which I can’t really argue against. “One club sandwich at a time” might be my only suggestion for improvement, but why quibble?
When host Erin Rae asked me to participate, my first question, naturally, was “Why me?” She replied, “My show centers on books and reading, and since I get to select who comes on, I like to offer a platform to people who are starting out, or who don’t have an established fan base, in an effort to help get their voices heard. In my experience new and/or unknown authors have interesting things to say, they just aren’t talking to quite as many people as a blockbuster novelist.”
Again, I can’t argue, and I’m happy to ramble for an hour about writing and one of my favourite subjects: me.
Oh wait, there’s you too. You’re invited to call in and have a chat or ask about how many socks I own. (I’ll save you the trouble: 13 1/2.) The show will also be archived if you would like to relive the pain.
