The Media Blitz Begins

Steve Potter

Steve Potter of STL TV will do my first interview about my book The Colorful Characters of St. Louis on Sept.  14 for broadcast later.

This will be the fourth time Steve’s interviewed me for a book. He’s always thorough. I look forward to our time together.

For me, it’ll be the official start of the selling season. People who want to write a book should realize that their job isn’t over when they turn in the manuscript. They have to push it to the public. I wish it wasn’t so, but it is. On the other hand, I do enjoy talking about what I’ve found out. I’ll start that in my discussion with Steve.
