Book developments in brief
We did our first radio spot yesterday. Was terrified and saw some "red strychnines" during the evening and in the morning then all day yesterday and today...Hope they go away. But we did fine, so everyone who heard it says. THe reviews have mostly all been quite good as have the articles, all postive. Tomorrow is the big day, our first. We do a TV interview first, then a rado show, then a big reading and booksigning at a town hall auditorium...Everyone of which terrifies me. I'm doing it for you, guys, so wish me luck. And by the way, I wrote the book, if you didn't know it, because so many of you wrote to me and told me that I had written in my various posts exactly how you felt but couldn't put it into words. So I figured if I told my story well enough, I could write something that would help all of us in some way. I guess I should have explained that much earlier...Anyhow, better late than never, right? Well, the documentary filmmaker just came again, for the hundredth time it seems (she's been coming here more a year or more now to film the writing of the book and the finishing process) so I guess I'd better quit. TTFN

I am interested in finding out when the GMA interview will be rescheduled. I thought the original date was Aug 31, not Aug. 24.
Good luck in publicizing your book and in your efforts to make the struggle with mental illness better known to the general public.

I just finished the book and immediately began looking for more info. I watched GMA today but I guess the coverage of the hurricane didn't allow time for you to get on. Do you have a rescheduled date? I checked their website but found nothing.
Relieved and glad to see how well you've been...hope it continues...with all your talk of stair climbing i'm guessing you are back on the xyprexa and trying to counteract its effects?
Best wishes, Susan P

Once you get used to the smell of the grease paint and the roar of the crowd,you'll be an old pro at all the bells and whistles of the endless promotional work an author must be prepared to do in order to let the public know that they have a wonderful experience in store for them between the covers of your book.(I do tend to write lengthy sentences, don't I?) Anyway, you're already wet, so go ahead and enjoy the swim!
