Another Fear to Face

Tomorrow I’m going to be doing something for the first time in my entire life–a TV interview.

Yup, that’s right. I’m heading to Fargo tomorrow morning to be on a talk show where the host will be talking to me about my book BEYOND THE EYES.

Yikes!

Don’t get me wrong. I’m grateful for this opportunity to promote my book and series.

I am.

I just hope though, my mouth and brain will decide to play nice and work together because usually my mouth tends to be like an impatient, unruly child. It doesn’t wait for the brain to process the message. Instead, it blindly snatches words floating around in my mind that’s in the process of assimilating those words together to form a cohesive thought before reaching my lips. But my mouth doesn’t care about the *yawn* mechanics of the brain. It wants to do what it wants to do and doesn’t give a shit how I look when the words tumbling from my lips are completely wrong in context or meaning. Or, the message I’m trying to convey comes out backwards.

Kevin told me not to have any preconceived ideas on what the questions are going to be because if I do, I’ll formulate the answers in my mind before hand.

What’s wrong with that, right?

Well, his reason is if I do that, when the time comes to answer those questions, I’ll screw them up. But how can I not wonder what questions will be thrown at me?

I don’t know.

All I know is since I’ve released this book, I’ve faced a lot of my fears in order to promote it. I’ve done things I never thought I could do. So being on TV and talking about my book is another fear I’ll have to face. But at least it’s not live. I do take comfort in that. Maybe someday I’ll have to do a TV interview live, but not today.

Not today.

I honestly don’t have a problem facing my fears if it’s for something I really want, and I really want this series to do well.

So I’ve come to the conclusion I’m just going to be myself in this interview and ignore the cameras. If I say "dude" or "cool" a lot, so be it. I do hope though, besides sounding halfway intelligent, that I don’t go into a coughing fit. I still have that dang cough from the virus Kevin passed along to me. Last night when I was going to sleep, my chest was rattling big time and all my sick twisted mind could think about was "the death rattle."

Lovely.

But it’ll be okay. I know my story and my family history when it comes to dealing with the paranormal.

Anyway, it’s tomorrow Tuesday, August 28th at 1:00 p.m. in Fargo. I have to admit, I am looking forward to meeting the guy who will be interviewing me and of course the producer who invited me on. They both seem like very nice people.

Wish me luck, and I’ll letcha know how it goes.

*waves bye*
