I posted a query about doing newspaper interviews on June 3. Here's an update:
All went well. I took all suggestions and you were all right. It went smoothly and I'm quite pleased with the article. The reporter did a nice job, getting down all the details and making the book as well as the author look pretty darn interesting.
I had spent an hour with the photographer, even going to a landmark courthouse that is described in the book, but when the article came out, there was no photo at all.
A bit disappointing, but probably for the best interest of the viewing public.
Thanks again to everyone who participated in the discussion.
