Heidi Rice ... Media star in the making

Had to pop in and say that I did my first ever media interview yesterday in Richmond. Got a last minute call the day before from the Marketing Department at M&B who were on the lookout for an author who could give a BBC journalist the low-down on writing romance. 

I high-tailed it up to Richmond in my smart-casual best, met with Sophie, the very friendly BBC journalist who would be interviewing me and Giselle the camerawoman. We then popped down to a local church yard where I answered a few questions about the joys of romance writing and being a M&B author. All of what I said is a complete blur - wish I could have been one of my heroines at this point and had three hours to think of lots of sassy comebacks to the questions. Hopefully it wasn't all total twaddle though. Will post the interview here if it ever pops up on YouTube. The word is it's due to be shown on BBC News Channel tomorrow morning. 

I shall keep you posted.

Heidi, There is a link to the interview on HM&B Editors Q&A thread posted by Carol Townsend, I believe. You did a great job!

Also Have to say that I'm totally in lust with the cover model on your Modern 'Bedded by a Bad Boy' In my opinion it's the best cover ever.. I'm trying to get hold of a copy as it didn't have the same cover over in the States, as you know.

Chris.

Aww, thanks so much for saying that about the interview Chris.

But I'm afraid I've got first dibs on that guy on the BBBB cover. Just so you know!
