To start MYM (Male YA Month) on a Book and a Chat I was very glad to hand over the host of the show to the one and only Heidi R Kling, author of the very popular 2010 YA book "SEA".
Fighting the threat of erupting children, something I myself know about, Heidi still managed to lead the show through various questions about my book “Across the Pond” my short romance stories at http://romance2read.com and why I am running the “Male YA Author Month”.
We chatted about why the month event was set up, following a challenge from YA Auhtor Alexander Diaz (Stupid Things), and how I went about getting a list of possible authors from bloggers, then contacting the authors to see if they were interested in being on the radio show.
I went through the guest we have receiving several oo’s and aa’s from those listening in the chat room, where it seemed many of the guests were indeed popular.
I even had time to ask Heidi herself what she was working on and producing after the success of “SEA”.
The end of the show was a revise of the MYM calendar of guests, a couple of anecdotes about England, and I even managed to answer a question about some of my favorite English saying/language issues.
