As part of my on-going mission to get as much FREE publicity for my book, Thames Valley Tales, as possible, I have recently appeared on two radio stations. Now, it helps to have a contact to make an introduction for you, and in my case, my friend, Jeff Lloyd, of The Vinyl Frontier, did the necessary.(https://www.facebook.com/vinylfrontiernorden/ ).
He set me up with a gentle warm-up interview on community radio station Marlow FM, before stepping up to a BBC Regional Radio Station. I entering the hallowed halls of BBC Radio Berkshire based in a ye-olde country house in Caversham, near Reading, with some trepidation. How would I come across? Would I freeze?
Paul is a real pro and instantly put me at ease. He had even done his homework by actually reading the introduction and two stories I had sent a week earlier as a pdf. This formed the basis of our discussion and led into a short reading from one of the stories. Will my appearance translate to sales? I’ll wait until the 15th to check with trepidation my monthly report from amazon kindle….finger’s crossed!
