What a wonderful and exciting moment for me as I was interviewed by Dorothy May Mercer on the National TalkStoryTV Featured Show for Author & Publisher Talk!
The TalkStoryTV Show is part of Julia Widdop’s Seekers Journey program that interviews publishers and authors from across America. Widdop is based in Denver, Colorado.
The video interview lasted over twenty minutes as we talked about creative writing, publishers, editors and marketing of books. In the interview Ms. Mercer asked some very insightful questions as we talked about Ghost of Atlanta, winner of the 2011 Readers Favorite National Gold Medal Award for General Fiction and the soon to be published Purple Phantoms by Passionate Writer Publishing.
We also talked about my first two novels, A Brownstone in Brooklyn and Philly Style and Profile.
We both agreed that you must have a fantastic publisher and editor and that gave me the opportunity to “brag” about PWP and my editor Dennis DeRose.
As a Creative Writing instructor in the Evening at EmoryUniversity program in Atlanta, Georgia, I was able to brag on one of my former students, Mary Gilmartin, who published for her first novel this month: Adventures with Easton.
This was my first Video interview and it proved most enjoyable as I was able to talk about my background, give credit to people who helped me, including my sister Rochelle Thompson, and my mentors and teachers along the way.
This was truly a blessing from God!
