One of the many amazing things about getting published in Modern Love in the New York Times has been the feedback and the contacts. Besides my excellent friends and family, I have received emails from perfect strangers who connected with my piece. That is SO gratifying. A drug almost. A lovely drug. To think that people who don't know me at all wrote and said they laughed and cried was just electric to me. And believe me, I have mostly cried, so receiving these emails has been wonderful.
One person who contacted me was Robin Kall who hosts a radio show where she interview writers on 920WHYJJ called "Reading with Robin." She so enjoyed me piece that she wanted to interview me on the radio! Hey it was at 7:10am on a Saturday and for the smallest state in the Union, but it was a wonderful experience. And it is global on-line so I am sure it has a wide following because Robin is a great host.
Robin was so nice and really celebrated me and my writing. She plugged my piece and this blog often which I guess is what writers want -to be exposed in order to be read. I someday hope to be back on her show with a book to plug.
Thank you, Robin!
