I’m sure I could’ve come up with a better title, but that’s what I’m doing. Some of you not only follow me here on my blog, but you follow me on The Sisterhood of Suspense Blog. I posted a blog on Tuesday about the radio/video interview with Texas Authors and the RWA Kiss of Death chapter BIAW (Book In a Week) project. Here’s the link for that:

You can read all about both experiences if you didn’t check out the SOS blog.

And here’s the link for the radio/video interview directly:

What I’m hoping is by making this post insanely short, you will take time to watch the video. I think it turned out pretty good, but I’d love to hear what you think of it. If you like it, I hope you will share it on your social media sites. We talk a lot about Book 4 in The Second Chances Series, ACT OF SURVIVAL, where the main character is an abused wife.

I also need help in how to refer to the technology. It’s on video and it’s a radio show and yet it’s more than a radio show. Should I just say, it’s a YouTube “video”? But it’s on the radio.  I mean I just don’t know. Help.

Big thanks to Texas Authors for offering me the opportunity and to Rox Burkey who asked the questions and Alan Bourgeois who founded Texas Authors. If you’re an author in Texas, you should be a member.

Love to hear from you.

  1. Well, twere me, I’d call it a podcast available on radio and a video available on YouTube (or just a radio show and video). There are nice tools to pull audio out of video so it’s not that uncommon to have both methods available.

    • Hey, Jacqui. Of course, I never thought of calling a podcast and then saying it’s available on radio. Then the video is a YouTube thing. Thanks, Jacqui. Appreciate that and you stopping by. 🙂


  2. Congratulations!! You did an outstanding job in the interview! And I enjoyed seeing your pup right there too. The interviewer was very professional asking great questions and your answers were interesting and right on. BTW, you look beautiful in the video. You didn’t seem nervous at all. Perhaps due to your theatre experience. Did you send Roxie the questions to ask? Sounds like you even communicated before the show. Did you use a microphone on your laptop or a separate speaker? There were a few audio problems. I’ve heard about folks stripping the audio out of a video to be used on a podcast. So I think you have it right. You can be seen on video or heard on a podcast. You’ve got the bases covered, girl. I’ll share the video on FB. Kudos to you and to Roxie. JQ Rose

    • Hey, J.Q. Thanks for the kind words. I do think my theatre experience makes this kind of thing okay for me. As I said I rehearsed by recording myself answering the questions I’d sent. Now she didn’t use them all and had a few different ones. But going through the rehearsal really helped.
      I don’t know why the audio had issues and sometimes video wasn’t on me when I was talking. It was edited, so I hope that wasn’t because I was doing something weird. LOL I really never heard Charley behind me. When I watched it, I was relieved he turned around so we could see his sweet face and not his rear. I do need to sit more still, when I move the focus goes out. Hard for me. But I really like doing these. I have to figure a way to do more. You’ve done podcasts, right, JQ? We need to chat. Thanks so much for stopping by and for sharing the video. 🙂 .


  3. Marsha, I just listened to the recording. You were wonderful. I enjoyed it. I believe I’ve listened to all of your interviews and podcasts. Bill was in the room as well on his computer, so he listened to much of it also. Congratulations!! Keep on, keeping on!

    • Hey, Susan. Oh, you were so nice to listen to the recording. I appreciate you (and Bill even if he got it second hand. 🙂 ) Even though our friend Helena Fairfax and I haven’t met in person, listening to an interview she did, went a long ways to bridging that gap. Thanks for listening and for stopping by. 🙂


  4. Hi Marsha, congratulations on your professional interview. You come across really well and your voice is beautifully clear. It was great to see you speaking after all this time of only ‘hearing’ you through your writing. I hear podcasts are becoming more and more popular and are a great way to engage with readers. I think you’ve demonstrated that with this video interview. You brought a lot of added interest to your books. I look forward to more.
