Would you please do me a favor?
Would it help if I told you doing it is very easy?
How about if I told you it was really REALLY important to me?
How about if I promised it wouldn’t cost you a penny and it would only take about a half hour of your time?
What if I told you that I’m pretty sure you’ll find the time spent engaging, enlightening, and entertaining?
And what if I added that it might even answer some questions you’ve been trying to answer for a long time?
Is that enough to get you to help?
Here’s the deal: At 4 PM EST this Thursday, April 14, 2022, I’m going to be on Public Television’s (PBS) literary program, “Between the Covers.”
When you tune in, PBS says you’ll “watch interviews with award-winning, nationally recognized authors. Our host Ann Bocock interviews writers of all genres, diving deep into their creative processes, their struggles and, of course, their successes.”
I’m excited because we’re going to talk about my new book, Is That All There Is‽
I’m even more excited because I’ve watched a bunch of Bocock’s segments, and I’m quite impressed by how thorough, insightful, and interesting her interviews are. I’m even more excited to be included on a list of guests that includes renown writers such as Rick Bragg, Zakiya Dalila Harris, Stuart Woods, and many more.
Pardon the name dropping, but c’mon…
So, what would Iike you to do for me? It’s easy…
Do me a favor. Just watch the program.
As I said, I’m pretty sure that you’ll find the time spent engaging, enlightening, and entertaining. And our chat might even answer some questions you’ve been trying to answer for a long time.
By the way, this online interview will be a special sneak peek because PBS runs it on social media in real time before the program ever airs on the network. Just click HERE for YouTube Live and enjoy. If that doesn’t work (technology!!), all you have to do is log onto Facebook or YouTube, search “Between the Covers,” and tune in.
Why do I want you to do this? There are two reasons:
- I’m really proud of the book I’ve written and I’m confident that the interview is going to be a good one. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the time we spend together and that you’ll also find it interesting and personally fulfilling. Who doesn’t spend time thinking about the tagline of the book, “What are you doing for the rest of your life?” I spent three years interviewing fascinating people who had successfully pivoted their lives and there’s so much for you to discover from their experiences.
- I want to demonstrate to PBS that I can help them generate viewership for their program. Public Television is in the media business after all, and they want to generate as many viewers as they can. I’d like to help them with that.
Believe it or not, the idea of generating lots of viewers for PBS brings up a second favor I’d like you to do for me – and it’s an easy one too.
Please tell your friends and family about the show and encourage them to tune in as well. You can simply forward this email, or you can share this LINK on your social media sites and spread the word. I’ve even attached one of PBS’ ads for the event if you want to cut and paste it into your feed.
Of course, after you’ve watched, I’m super interested in hearing your thoughts and suggestions so please do me a favor and comment on your social media posts or just click on the “share your thoughts” button on the blog and let me know what you think.
