Philly Sports Radio Personality Trevelise on debut episode of The Liberty Belle Hour on BTR

One of the many things I am incredibly blessed with are good friends who consistently look out for my best interests, as I do theirs. This kind of reciprocity makes life not only fulfilling, but also rewarding — I can’t think of anything better than to be in a position to truly help someone with real talent achieve their dreams. Many continue to assist me in this regard, particularly my good friend, ardent supporter and fellow writer, Don Smith, who called me excitedly last night with some pretty welcome news.

Seems Don, who now writes for as well as InvestComics, made the acquaintance of Philly sportsradio personality Steve Trevelise, from 610 AM, WIP. After apprising him about me, The Liberty Belle Hour, Water Signs and my passion for Philly teams like the Eagles, Steve expressed an interest in being a guest on the debut episode of The Liberty Belle Hour on BlogTalkRadio on August 5 — as well as bringing me on to his show, which runs from 11 p.m. – 2 a.m.

Steve and I confirmed everything via email this morning, and I am really looking forward to it!

As readers of Water Signs know, the Eagles and Phillies play a prominent role in defining my characters and painting the portrait of the Philly/suburbs/South Jersey culture. Being an avid Giants fan, I am sure Steve will take me to task over a few things — like the fact that unlike the Giants — the Eagles have yet to win a Super Bowl. But maybe we’ll bond over a shared dislike of the Dallas Cowboys!

Anyway, I hope you’ll tune in to both the debut of The Liberty Belle Hour on BlogTalkRadio and my appearance on Trevelise’s show on WIP on August 5.

And thank you again to Don for being a stellar friend and staunch supporter of me and my work!


The Catholic Revolver with Jerry Weber

This afternoon I was a guest for the third time on Jerry Weber’s excellent Blog Talk Radio show, The Catholic Revolver. Today our conversation centered around the definition of feminism, Sarah Palin, the contemporary dating scene and the present state of our culture. As always, it was an absolute pleasure, and I look forward to joining Jerry again soon on a future broadcast. Click on the link below to listen to the interview and be sure to tune in live on Saturdays at 4 p.m. Eastern.

Water Signs Wins Blurb Radio’s Book of the Week Award

Water Signs Wins Blurb Radio’s Book of the Week Award

I had the wonderful opportunity to create a three-minute audio commercial for Water Signs, as part of a fiction competition for an exciting Blog Talk Radio show called Blurb! Hosted by Dr. Kent and Sally, this creative, entertaining program airs select blurbs submitted by aspiring authors, alternating genres (fiction, nonfiction, etc) every week. The hosts then comment live after playing each blurb for their listening audience, before ultimately selecting a winner for “Book of the Week.” On July 15, 2009 I was thrilled to appear on their show as the recipient of that week’s honor!

Many thanks to Dr. Kent and Sally.

For those of you who love to read, I highly recommend listening their innovative BTR show, which airs every Wednesday evening at 9 p.m. And for authors seeking more exposure for their work, I highly recommend contacting them to submit a blurb. Even if I hadn’t won, the process of distilling the major themes of my novel into a compelling, three-minute audio description was an excellent exercise that prepared me well for future interviews.

UPDATE: Since my interview eight years ago, there have been many changes. Looks like the show moved to Fridays at 12:30 PM ET for a while, but I haven’t seen any recent episodes. Visit Blurb’s Show Page on Blog Talk Radio for archived episodes.
