My first ever newspaper interview mentions a very famous story site that some here may recognize...the online version went live last night, and the print edition came out this morning, Thursday Sept. 20...

Apparently I'm front page news online, but on page 24 in the print edition...there are a couple of minor factual errors, and if you read the first line carefully you'll quickly realize they might consider hiring a proofreader, but overall I think it came out nice...icon_smile

Here's the link to the online version...

Excellent result. I like the way Jacqueline (the journalist) kept referring to you as Jankowski, rather than Alan. Very professional.

Not so sure why she mentioned leaving erotica out - unless you made a pass at her.

Either way - well done.

Funny...I can't seem to recall anything along the lines of making a pass at her...dontknow

Anyway...on another note...a good idea if you're attempting to promote a book, or anything else for that matter...is to get something like this interview mentioned as many places as possible...so, for example, it is now mentioned here...

It turned out well. I didn't notice the typo in the first line until you pointed it out.

Thanks again for mentioning SS. :)

Congrats, DD. We're all soooooo proud of you. An interview like that is always a plus and, in your case, to have it appear somewhere other than the 'crime' section is very positive. :)
