Word Play with Kristine Raymond. Where authors get together to talk about writing, reading, and anything else that comes to mind. Unscripted. Unrehearsed. Real conversations.
How's that for an intro? In my never-ending pursuit to promote authors, I've started an audio podcast and would love to have you as a guest on the show. Here's how it works...
First off - this is an audio production. No webcams. No Skype. No laptops or computers needed; just a clear phone line. Messy hair, pajamas, and bare feet welcome! The show is prerecorded; not live, so no need to be nervous. It's just two friends hanging out having a conversation.
The show's format is open forum rather than interview style; anything goes, within limits, of course. I'll ask general questions about what you're working on, but the conversation can go anywhere. Imagine two people hanging out and catching up over a cup of coffee or tea or whatever. The only rule is the conversation must stay PG - no F-bombs, no explicit sexual content, no bashing ANYONE!!! I reserve the right to edit or flat out scrap the entire episode if I feel it's inappropriate. But I know you'll behave, right?
Episodes go live every Wednesdays on PodBean, iTunes, Google Play Music, iHeartRadio, and Spotify, and the links will be added to my website. Once posted, feel free to share the links yourself.
If you're interested, please fill out this form. I'll do my best to accommodate you if you want a specific date for the episode to air due to a new release or something exciting you want to share, but I can't make any guarantees. Otherwise, your episode will be posted on a first come/first served basis. Once I receive your info, I'll contact you to set up a time to record the episode. Please allow approximately 30 minutes - this includes time to get settled before recording begins and a chance to chat once it ends. You'll need to be somewhere quiet as any outside noises will be picked up on the recording. You'll also need to speak directly into the phone - NO SPEAKERPHONES.
On the day we record your episode, you'll need to call me at the appointed time at *971-350-8463. I won't be able to call you as in order for me to record the conversation, it has to come from an incoming call. If you need to reschedule, I'd appreciate 24 hours notice; however, I do understand that emergencies happen. Get back to me as soon as you're able, and I'll be happy to reschedule, but if you bail and don't contact me, I reserve the right to add you to my unwelcome guest list, and no one wants that to happen.
*International callers can contact me through Messenger at no charge, but please let me know beforehand if this is how you intend to call.
I think that's it. I hope you'll join me on this new venture because I can't wait to tell the world about YOU!!!
