I think I may have finally found my comfort zone when it comes to author events. Conference calls. Yes, I found that I'm not nervous at all and my voice doesn't sound strangled when I don't actually have to look at the people I'm speaking to. I had a fun conference call last Saturday with the wonderful ladies of the Open Book Closed Chapter Book Club in Columbus, OH. I wasn't able to attend their meeting in person. So, I set up a conference call during the meeting, which turned out better since the area got hit with a snow storm that evening. Anyway, I spent about twenty-five minutes discussing my book with them and answering questions. I hope they enjoyed it as much as I did.
