My Interview on Buddy's Writing Show or How Many Times Can I Say Fabulous?

My funny writer friend, Buddy Gott, has a YouTube show guessed it...Buddy's Writing Show and he just had me on as a guest.  Woot! Woot! *fist pumps*

This was the most fun I've had in an interview EVER, despite the fact that my internet connection froze up a few times.  I never witnessed the problem and even accused Buddy of being in an altered state of mind.  I must officially eat my words and say it was most definitely MY connection issue.  Maybe my router is having trouble out in the yurt.  Hmmmm...must have my computer scientist hubby investigate.

So, here's the interview and I thought it would useful and fun to jot some notes down about things we discussed and share links, etc.  You can watch the video and follow along with my notes as I have conveniently noted the time into the video the notes correlate with. Aren't I nifty and shit? lol!  Enjoy and please post any comments or questions below, as usual.  And please give my friend Buddy some love and subscribe to his YouTube channel. I promise, you will be thoroughly entertained.

My Notes and Comments:

00:26  I practice yoga just about every day and I love to create funky playlists to go with it.  Here was today's practice playlist 

00:55  I am very aware that I need to be able to describe the Love and Light Series succinctly and with enthusiasm that creates excitement and interest. I'm working on it.  Really.  Here's the link to the Love and Light Series page .


05:54  Yes, I hiked the entire Appalachian Trail. It's called thru-hiking and it was truly life changing.  I talk a little about it in my post A Journey of  Thousand Miles.

08:35  Correction: my husband WAS an artist, as in he earned a Fine Arts degree from Radford University YEARS ago. He has not painted an actual picture since I have known him.  It was easier to say "he paints" than to explain that he once-upon-a-time was an artist (actually worked for a living as one), but is now a computer scientist.  Yep, went back to college and got ANOTHER degree.  Over-achiever.  pfft. ;-)

09:00 The writer friend I was talking about is Liz Schulte and she was interviewed by John Mosul on the show Communicating Today on channel 10 in Fairfax, Virginia.  I have a copy of the interview, but I have to ask Liz if she wants it posted.  If she does, I'll add a link here and tweet about it.

09:41  Brainwashing techniques  I sometimes wonder if the NSA has a file on me and my random internet searches about automatic weapons, floaters, laudanum, and BDSM.

17:15  Romantic Edge Books is a group of nine authors writing LOVE on the EDGE ~ Liz Schulte, Amanda Latzel, C.G. Powell, Olivia Hardin, Stephanie Nelson, Lola James, Mandie Stevens, Tawdra Kandle, and me, Melissa Lummis.

21:45  Here are all my contact links:
          Twitter:   @melissalummis
          Facebook:  Melissa Lummis
          tumblr:  Adventures on My Road
          Pinterest:  My Boards
          Google+:  Melissa Lummis

22:25  And, yes, I was able to fix my tumblr blog address.  Duh. *shaking my head at myself*

24:00  I am working on adding the playlists I created for each book to the website, but in the meantime you can check out all of them on my Spotify page.  I've got all the music I was talking about - Everlast, Paul McCartney's new album New, and NIN comeback album Hesitation Marks -- in my playlists.  Happy listening!

That's about it. Thank you for listening and reading and have an awesome day!
