Hello, listeners in radio land! For the release of my new book ANIMAL ZOMBIES!...AND OTHER REAL-LIFE MONSTERS, my publicist from National Geographic Kids arranged a 16-city radio media tour in cities including Bend, OR, Fargo, ND, Los Angeles, Dallas, Pittsburgh, and St. Louis. It didn’t matter that some of these were small towns. I was petrified. I’d never been on the radio before and public speaking makes me sweat. But I decided to face my fears and give it a try. NatGeoKids also provided some media training, which was extremely helpful. Here’s what I learned from the experience and some tips that I hope are helpful not only for radio interviews but also for any type of book promo:
Listen to some of my radio interviews here, here, and here!
AND FOR ALL YOU RADIO LISTENERS, WE HAVE A GIVEAWAY!
