a peak into the crystal ball

I received this in my email a few days ago:

Subject: Radio Interviews
Date: Wed, 19 Apr 2006 11:45:05 -0700

Hello Naughtygirl,

What are you currently doing (if anything) to obtain live radio interviews by telephone, so that you can generate more exposure for yourself? That is what we authors, public speakers, experts, independent film makers, and consultants hire us to obtain live radio interviews by telephone for them on radio stations in the U.S. and Canada. If you would like, I can send you some breakdowns on the campaigns that we have available. Just let me know and I will get it right out to you by email (just give me a good email address to send it to).

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Bryan Farrish Radio Promotion

So this is my future as a published writer aside from the TV appearances, book signings, book readings and writer's conventions. It doesn't seem so bad. And to think Lorilynn hasn't even read my book yet. Heck! My book hasn't even seen the printers. What foresight these marketers have in anticipating a need! I'm quite impressed.

Either that or this is a sign that my book is going to be a success and I'll be doing radio interviews in the near future.'s a scary but wonderful thought! Wouldn't it be something if all this did come true? We'll see.

one day soon...

You Should Be a Science Fiction Writer

Your ideas are very strange, and people often wonder what planet you're from.
And while you may have some problems being "normal," you'll have no problems writing sci-fi.
Whether it's epic films, important novels, or vivid comics...
Your own little universe could leave an important mark on the world!
What Type of Writer Should You Be?

(just taking a break from my self-imposed prison)

I knew it. I am destined to be in the ranks of Gaiman, Lovecraft, Kutner, Gibson. etc. Someday I will finish my futuristic novel and the world will marvel at my work. I will receive acclaimed fame and respect from my colleagues. My books will be a market success and my dream to be a world-famous writer will come true.

Someday. Someday.
