I enjoyed a fantastic day with my brothers in the Col. Stepnen Trigg Chapter Sons of the American Revolution today at the Trigg County Ham Festival. We always host a booth and raffle a Henry Golden Boy .22 rifle for our annual chapter fundraiser. Also, to add to our Revolutionary War theme, I host a sales table for my books. It’s a great way to connect with local readers.
Around mid-afternoon, our regional radio station … WKDZ … approached for a live, on-air interview. All of our guys pointed at me and declared, “He’s our spokesperson!” It’s not an official office that I hold. Everyone simply assumes that I am a “ham” and always ready to be on the radio.
So … I was interviewed for almost three minutes on a live remote broadcast. One of my SAR friends snapped this picture during our interaction.
I fully anticipated the interview to be focused on the SAR. But, the interviewer kept coming back to my books and my writing business. I managed to make sure that the Col. Stephen Trigg SAR got equal playing time. But, it was nice to be able to talk about my novels on a large, far-reaching, and major radio station! Here’s hoping that it elicits a spike in my Amazon sales!
