Well, I’ve been mentioning this for a while now, so I think it’s time to give you all the relevant details:
The Show: “A Book And A Chat with Allan Frewin Jones.”
The Location: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/Across-the-Pond
The Date: Saturday November 27th 2010.
The Time: 11am Eastern Standard Time (Please check to fit with your own time zone!)
The live interview will last for one hour.
You can listen, or you can dial in on: 347 237 5398 if you want to say hello to me or ask a question.
Those of you who check out my site regularly will know that I have been talking on and off for the past few months about the fact that I would be participating in a live chat forum on Inkpop.
Well, I was told that I needed to log on at 11pm UK time last night in order to start replying to questions by would-be authors and readers of my books.
Just to be on the safe side, I logged in at 10pm - an hour early. I was quite surprised to see that I had emails from the Inkpop people complaining that I was late and asking where I was!
It turned out that the people at Inkpop in America had got the changes in time zones totally wrong - and they thought that 9pm in the UK was 11pm!!!!
Fortunately, a bunch of people had left questions, so I answered them over the following hour and a half - but anyone hoping to interact with me live would have been very disappointed! So, if any of you people went online at Inkpop, please accept my apologues for not being there.
Note to self: never trust anyone to get these things right! Always double-check!
I will make absolutely sure I have the time zones right for the Radio show I will be on in November - more details about that to come very soon.
Hey, everyone! There’s even more of The 3rd Warrior Princess book to see if you follow the above link!
I have some more information now about the “live chat” forum I will be on later this month.
As it says above, this will take place on the 27th October, for an hour from 4pm EST - I’m sure you people will all be able to work out what time that is in your own time zones. Apparently this is about an hour earlier than these chats usually take place - this is because it will be 11 o’clock at night in London where I live - if we left it any later, I’d probably fall asleep at the keyboard.
It is open for Inkpop members - of which there are apparently over five thousand - so if any of you people would like to join in, you’ll need to register. All you need to do is go to www.inkpop.com and click on the Register button in the upper right-hand corner. Two options will appear, connect with Facebook or Create a new inkpop account - click on the Create a new Inkpop account.
Fill in the registration page.
After doing this and clicking yes to the Terms and Conditions of Service box, you will be taken to a profie page. Fill in as much or as little of this as you feel like. Save changes. You will then have an Inkpop profile.
I’m certain you are all a lot more computer-savvy than I am, so I’m sure you won’t have any trouble figuring out what you have to do to ask me questions - but apparently I will be sent a specific URL one week prior to the actual live chat. If this is relevant to Inkpop members I will post it as soon as I have it - so keep an eye on this page, okay?
I hope some of you will feel like taking part in this live chat - it should be fun!
I’ll post more information about the dial-in Internet Radio show I’m taking part in soon.
For all of you who have been asking me about the sneak-peek chapters of the forthcoming 3rd Warrior Princess book - good news! I have now posted two and a half chapters for you to take a look at. Those who have Warrior Princess 2: Destiny’s Path in hardback will recognise the first chapter from the back of that book, but the rest will be new to you.
You can access the chapters by going to the BOOKS page and then clicking on the appropriate links on the sidebar on the right hand side. Or you can go into the Warrior Princess page, then to The Emerald Flame page and link through from the bottom of that page.
In the next few days I will post some information about the live chat hour I am involved in later this month.
