Renee Hand's Exciting New Radio Show

Before I share the exciting news at Blog Talk Radio, just a reminder that the give-away contest for a free copy of The Fourth Wish ends tomorrow, Friday, September 9th, at midnight (my time -- California time). To find out how to win, check out the rules here: 

Okay: Big Announcement:

Renee Hand of the Crypto-Capers Review is starting a new venture on Blog Talk Radio called Stories from Unknown Authors. Renee's purpose is in the very title of her show. She interviews unknown and undiscovered authors about their books and their writing aspirations. Renee has always been supportive of other authors, and she regularly reviews children's books on the Crypto-Capers Review. (I subscribe to it and always look forward to the next e-mail with its latest book review.)

In addition, Renee is an award-winning author of the charming, interactive Crypto-Capers mystery series, where mysteries have to be solved by solving puzzle clues -- and kids do love puzzles and mysteries. You can learn more about Renee and her books here.

I'm partly excited about Renee's new radio show, because I'm going to be interviewed on it next Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. EST. (If you are interested in listening in on it, you'll have to work out the time zone differences. For me, it's 2:30 p.m., since I live in California.) But I'm also excited to be part of such a great line up of authors she has slated for September and October. 

The first one was scheduled for today. (I'm sorry to be late posting this. Unfortunatley today I had a doctor appointment following up on my recent foot surgery and I just got back awhile ago.) But -- if you tune in late, or if you miss that interview, you can still find and listen to any interview you missed, including Renee's introductory program Tuesday. The shows are always at 6:30 EST, and you can work it out from there. Just go to the main website for the show and scroll on down to see upcoming shows and her main introduction. 

Oh, yes, you can also call into the show with questions: (619) 566-0945
Here are some of the authors lined up for September:

Nicole Weaver - My Birthday Is on September 11th.
Me (Elizabeth Varadan) - The Fourth Wish.
Britt Menzies - The Stinky Kids Seriess
Larry Peterson - Slipper Willie's Stupid, Ugly Shoes

Meanwhile, go to Renee's Tuesday post to get more information about the authors and about the books.

Happy reading. Happy listening. Happy writing, too, because we might be listening to  your interview on her show one of these days!

That's wonderful, Elizabeth. You must be excited and thrilled. Good luck.

Elizabeth Varadan aka Mrs. Seraphina said...

Thanks all. I'm so pleased she asked me. She does wonderful reviews of children's books, so I hope you'll all visit her site. Hope, too, that you can find a way to listen to her broadcasts. The great thing is that you can listen to shows you missed at the url in the post. Happy listening, and I do hope some of you can tune in on my interview either at the time or later.

Congratulations! I can't wait to hear the show!

Elizabeth Varadan aka Mrs. Seraphina said...

Carol and Shallee, yes I agree. Great idea for highlighting authors. I'm so pleased she asked me.

Kirsten, glad you plan on listening. I have to admit, I'm a bit nervous. Other than that, I'm looking forward to it. I listened to the first one (later), and Renee has a nice way of putting the interviewee at ease.
