I'm on Romance Novel TV!

When I was at the New Jersey conference in October, I was invited to sit down with Sophia Nash and be interviewed for Romance Novel TV. How fun is that! I’d been dying to do one of those interviews, but after they asked me and I enthusiastically said yes, then came the email that said to show up in “camera ready makeup.” Huh?

You have to realize, I am so not the makeup girl. I don’t put it on unless I am going out. Like really out, in real public. Not up to school to pick up the kids or to the grocery store, but really out, with people other than the kids and the family or the local Starbucks crowd. But this is Romance Novel TV–so I have to put my best face forward. So of course, I turn to that makeup maven of Avon, Kathryn Smith. See her pretty face right there! She gave me all the right advice and so the next morning, I was ready. Of course the next bit of advice was that I shouldn’t wear a bright print. There goes the leopard print shirt I was planning to wear. On goes the basic black.

Next I met up with Sophia Nash and we chat a little bit about all this. Sophia is a real pro, with a broadcasting background and the chops to handle the stress. And being the savvy chick that she is, she’s dug really deep into my bio and pumped all my friends for dirt. It was sort of like being on Extra or Inside Edition.

We chatted away and then we got the giggles over a flubbed intro. The sort of “if you laugh, I am going to bust out” sort of giggles. The segment is called Author to Author, but Sophia said, “Author on Author.” And then I made some wisecrack about what sort of film crew was this and we all laughed. And then we laughed again. And then the interview went wild–we kept cracking each other up and trying to see who could do the better straight face–which never works because you know the person is trying too hard. Oh, goodness, never let two authors loose and see what they can say to top the other. It was hilarious.

What is so interesting to me is that the interviews always look like they are taking place in some cozy enclave, but this is just a hotel conference room they prettied up for the interviews. And while Sophia and I settle into those cozy chairs and make like we are just having coffee and chatting, this is what it looks like from my perspective:

All and all it was so much fun and the final interview is now up on Romance Novel TV, so check it out. And after the interview Maria and Marisa here were debating doing an outtake show. Be afraid, be very afraid.

    It looks and sounds like you had a fabulous time! Plus, I think you look amazing! Love the hair…you should get new author photos with that hairstyle. And not just to flatter you, it makes you look younger…I’d even venture to guess late 20’s. No I’m not sucking up!

    The interview was great too!!! I love those clips over at RNTV.

    BTW, Kate is so sweet and always looks great! I’m so jealous hehe.

    Marvelous, Elizabeth!!! Loved how great you and Sophia looked and how natural and at-ease you were with each other. Sophia’s really talented at making you feel like a million bucks when you’re with her, isn’t it?

    Thanks all! It was a lot of fun to do. And thanks Haven for the hair comment. My hair is the bane of my existence!

    And Keira, Sophia is the nicest person! She really is as gracious a person as she is in the interview.

    What fun, Elizabeth! Sounds like you had a great time with Sophia.

    I can totally relate to the make-up thing. If I thought it would make a difference, I’d spend more time on it. But even with make-up, I still look like me.

    Hey Elizabeth! I’m late to the partay but great blog. Its good to hear you
    had such a fun time. Although I’d be hard pressed to find anyone not have a
    good time with Sophia around. The girl is just a fun magnet 😉

    Kate is da bomb and a great go-to person. Ask her about the time I called
    her in a panic about interviewing another paranormal author. LOL. It was
    a strictly talk-me-down-from-the-ledge conversation.

    Take care!
