The interview with the newspaper reporter lasted 35 minutes and appeared to go quite well. I was relaxed and Jasmine was easy to talk to. She taped our conversation and wrote notes. Jasmine works for the Campbell Reporter. The San Jose Mercury News is a sister company. She said the article will appear on 11/20 or 11/27 in the Campbell Reporter. It will also appear on the Merc’s website, but I don’t know whether it all be the same day as the print version or different. An hour before our interview, a photographer came to my home office and snapped about 100 shots with me at my desk surrounded by my books. It too was a fun experience.
Woo hoo, superstar!
LOL! Thank you, Anette. I prefer to think of it more along the lines of a recent country song which said something like, “Everyone’s a star in a small town.” I’ve had my 15 seconds of fame and now it’s back to work. Well, not really. I have too much fun doing what I’m doing to pretend it’s work.
This is great, Russ. Really looking forward to reading the article. Clare
Thank you, Clare. Me too. I’m curious as to what she reports and what she leaves out.
Good point. Kind of like turning over your book to the movie industry and giving up the rights?
I was thinking more along the lines of what she thinks others will find most interesting about my story.
enjoy every minute of your stardom )
If it’s stardom, it’s a very, very, small star, but I plan to continue enjoying the adventure either way. Thank you, Beth.
My famous Russ! ♥
Thank you, Ute. I don’t know about fame. I hear it’s a two-edged sword. I do know I’m greatly enjoying the adventure and that’s a wonderful reward to me. Thank you for being here for me in spirit every step of the way.
May I have your autograph?
LOL! You have it on every check I wrote to you. And since you do such good work, you received a lot of checks. Thank you for the compliment and good work, Joan.
