More Marketing Ideas! by DL Larson
Dyanne Davis, past president of the Windy City RWA Chapter, hosts a TV program. She and her husband Bill do an amazing job highlighting authors. Dyanne asked me a few years ago to be a guest on her show and I said, 'when my next book comes out, I will.' She held me to that.
Our talk was about writing, ideas for writing and marketing. She asked me to explain my storyline for not only my new book, Promises My Love, but also for my previous ones. The time flew by.
This isn't the first time I've been on television, for my first book I visited a local TV station. I was nervous and my husband said I spoke as if I had laryngitis. I did better on the radio interview a few weeks later. Those interviews were live and the sense of urgency that surrounds a live show made me extremely nervous.
My talk with Dyanne was just the opposite. We laughed and talked without hurry or worry about the time. Bill will edit the show to pull out any unnecessary tidbits.
The talk will air in a few months. It will be on the local cable, channel 6, and from there spread, hopefully to U-tube. We'll see.
My next blog tour will be this Monday, August 5, at Sugarbeat's Books Blog. Find me at
