Soon Austin had me working it like a pro, and we completed a lengthy but amazingly pleasant interview. Time just flew, and seeing Austin on the other end asking questions made the event elementary and fun. Here's our interview in case you missed it.
WorkStew, a unique site that's tastefully done in simplistic lines. Per their site, "The Work Stew podcast is a forum for frank talk about what people do for a living." The host Kate Gace Walton recently interviewed me and took the conversation into a completely different slant than normal. Again, we used Skype. It's a tad over 11 minutes long, so it's brief.
"In this episode (of WorkStew Podcasts) featuring author C. Hope Clark, I learned that the work Ms. Clark is doing these days—penning mysteries and mentoring other writers—follows a decades-long career with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In fact, Ms. Clark managed to take the darkest days of her time as a government employee—when a bribery attempt turned her life upside down—and convert that ordeal into page-turning fiction."
The next one was a ball as teenagers interviewed me. Express Yourself!™ is the #1 YA radio program in the world. My interview with them airs on August 14th at NOON PM Pacific. You can listen from your computer by going to http://www.voiceamerica.com/show/2014/express-yourself .If you miss the live show, you can find my interview archived at http://www.starstyleradio.com or http://www.BTSYA.com .
They are all about spreading positive messages. "Teens talk, the world listens on Express Yourself!™”
Finally, on August 30, I'll be truly tested as South Carolina Educational Television (SC ETV) arrives in two trucks to my house for a two-hour interview on film for reproduction into a series about the literary map of South Carolina. Designed for schools, particularly middle and high school, the series educates others from the mouths of real writers and authors. It should be on their KnowItAll page for schools and education groups, a site recognized and praised by the American Library Association. I'm ecstatic to represent my profession to my state. I feel like one of those chefs on a cooking show! When that comes to fruition, I'll let you know, but I'm awful glad that this event happens on the heels of many conferences, interviews and appearances, after I've had lots of practice.
One day I hope I can master how to put together a podcast. They are amazing to do and listen to. What do y'all think? Do you like Skype? Podcasts? Interviews you can see and hear?
