Here is a link to the interview and article. It’s the top listed article on their page today. That’s not too shabby.
It was kind of a surprise last Wednesday. I needed to stop by Jennifer’s house for something unrelated to the book. I texted her and told her when I’d be there and she replied, “Great, then you can meet Ben Winslow!” I knew him to be a reporter from our local Fox channel and opted at that point to skip the errand I was headed to and go home to shower and change. Good call on my part. I didn’t just meet Ben Winslow, he also interviewed me on camera.
Now, Jennifer is used to whole reporters thing, but I’m still a baby at it. Still, I didn’t slobber or snort in the interview so I consider it a success. Besides, I made very little of the final cut. Everyone would rather hear from Jennifer. I would rather here from Jennifer!
The great news is word of our project is starting to spread. We have our proposal out right now with an agent and I have a pitch session this week with another one. We are ready to get this moving forward. With the trial coming up in a week, Jenn will be plastered on the news again and, sadly, that is great publicity. We would much rather be writing a book about the successful return of Susan and the boys but as Jenn states in her interview, “We can’t help Susan. She’s actually in a great place now. She doesn’t need our help anymore. But we can help the people who remain.”
That is our goal.
I have a beautiful picture of Susan, Charlie and Braden at my desk. It is there to remind me why I am doing what I am doing. I feel that they are with us through the process. It is a very humbling experience.
