So that’s what I sound like…

About a month ago, my former Scrivener student Lynne Klippel asked me if I’d do an interview about Scrivener for her online author summit, Successful Author Secrets.

I was pretty nervous about the whole idea of a delayed-but-essentially-live broadcast, but I think it came out pretty well, despite being on my cell phone.

And I learned a few things. Like the fact that I say “absolutely” a lot. I joked on Twitter and Facebook that you could make a drinking game out of it, though probably only if you did shots. It’s maybe one beer’s worth. 😉

Turns out I also laugh frequently–don't you dare say giggle–though I somehow still manage to sound like I know what I’m talking about most of the time. My son was just explaining yesterday how laughing is a way to defuse social tension, so let’s say I defused often.

If you want to check out my interview, I highly recommend signing up for the whole (FREE!) conference. Lynne has a great lineup of speakers discussing topics like marketing, time management, social media, and ebooks.

Too bad I couldn’t have listened to Wayne Kelly’s “Insider Tips on Acing Radio Interviews” before this one, but if you want to, he's up on May 23rd.

    I thought you did a wonderful job. It’s hard to do an interview on the phone. It took me to Literature and Latte site and here. I’ll be reading you regurlarly. I’m here to learn. Thanks. Marlene
