Things You Don’t Hear Every Morning…

“Mr. Overstreet, we’re going to have to postpone your interview by twenty minutes because we just got an opportunity to interview the actor Stephen Baldwin…”

Twenty-five minutes later… waiting on hold…

“I’m sorry, we’ve run out of time. We’re going to have to talk to you on another day.”

Oh well. I could start complaining about the usual supsect… but these things happen in radio.

    If it makes you feel any better… Yesterday I personally sold my first copy of your novel (at the cash register in a particular bookstore) to a young gentleman of, oh, 12 maybe. I’d never seen him before, but I assured him that he’d made a wise choice. He may show up at your reading on the 22nd.

    It’s OK. You didn’t really want to follow Stephen Baldwin, did you?
