The BBC (who apparently read my website, oh yes!) and the 'Listen Again' function have confirmed that Richard did, indeed, say I was an author. So I stand corrected. He did not mention my book, but frankly, I can't imagine 100,000 people scrambling for a pencil at 12:15 in the eveing saying, "What did he say the name of that book was? I've GOT to have a copy."
I was on national radio. I was introduced as an author. I held my own even though I was heavily outgunned. I have every reason to be pleased.
Am I am.
Here's the link to the show: Listen Again (Set the time line to about 1:10)
